Nearly all associations have Design Review of Architectural Guidelines with procedures for submitting requests to make exterior modifications to a home or property within the community. The Design Review Process is an important way for your association to help maintain, protect, and enhance property values within the association by preserving the architectural integrity of the community. Such modifications may include landscaping modifications, additions, exterior color changes, patios, sheds, or extensive interior modifications and additions. If an owner proceeds with an exterior improvement or modification without the prior written approval of the Board of Directors or Design Review Committee, as applicable, the owner will be required to remove or correct the alteration(s) and/or may be subject to substantial fines for the violation. An owner can begin the Design Review Process by submitting a Design Review Application for the association’s review. If you have a question about whether or not your planned project requires approval, please complete our General Questions request form.
