Design Review

Design Review Guidelines
 
The Design Review Committee is tasked with maintaining the visual appeal of the community, while also implementing and enforcing design guidelines that help protect and maintain your property value.

Every resident is required to submit an application and obtain approval from the committee PRIOR to starting exterior modifications to your home or property. 

Please refer to the design review documents for assistance when completing your outdoor projects such as landscaping, fencing, concrete, solar panels etc.
 
There are two main steps to completing a proper application. Each step is crucial, and any incomplete section will result in a further review and delayed approval.

Design Review Application and Questionnaire

The application is for review and approval of the following described exterior improvements. Anything not listed on the application and not clearly shown on plans will not be a part of this review. Approval is for Association purposes only, owners are still obligated to seek compliance approval with applicable state, county, or city jurisdiction, building, and zoning ordinances, or safety requirements. Approval shall be void for work not completed within one hundred eighty (180) days from review.
 
The questionnaire will help ensure that your application is complete and ready to be reviewed by the DRC. This questionnaire was designed by the DRC to give the homeowner the best possible chance of approval during the first submission. You can email the HOA representative for any questions or more details HERE.

Site Plan

Site plans can be professionally created or handcrafted from the owner itself and submitted in a PDF format document.  Failing to submit in this format, can result in the denied application or delayed approval.
