    The Architectural Review Board is composed of a  ten-member panel which includes the chairman of the Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Commission, the director of the Planning Department, four representatives appointed by the Tallahassee City Commission, and four appointed from the Leon County Commission.  At least three members must be  residents of Leon County and two representatives must be certified by the American Institute of Architects.
