Thanks @walker for the link.
@heresthecasey, I’m on the UAC and I’m not 100% clear, but here goes.
The UAC is like other area commissions in the city, made up of elected residents (who serve in one of 4 districts) and, in our case, appointed representatives of other groups (businesses, landlords, OSU, etc). It serves as your most local layer of city government, working with city officials and agencies to address community concerns and share information. It also has a zoning committee that acts in an advisory capacity to recommend how City Council and/or the zoning department decide on requests for variances. The planning committee is currently working with the city on a brand new plan for the entire University District.
UARB basically enforces design standards (architectural, signage, etc) set out in various documents like the urban overlay and the university impact district.
