Membership consists of 7 members appointed for 3 year overlapping terms. Duties: Reviews exterior design of new and remodeled buildings and site plans on properties in the Village Center and in C-2 outlying commercial districts. The committee's findings are final; however, their decisions can be appealed directly to the mayor and board of trustees.

The Appearance Review Commission (ARC) has jurisdiction within the Village Center boundaries (downtown Deerfield) and in the C-2 Outlying Commercial District. The ARC is a seven member Commission made up of Deerfield volunteers. Any exterior changes which would require a building permit or a deviation from an approved Planned Unit development need a certificate of approval issued by the ARC, including changes to building façades, sites, landscaping, and signs.
