In accordance with Article VII, Section 1 of the Easements, Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, the Architectural Control Committee must approve any “. . . building, fence, wall or other structure . . . nor shall any exterior addition to or change or alteration therein be made until the plans and specifications showing the nature, kind, shape, height, materials, exterior scheme, and location of the same shall have been submitted to and approved in writing . . . by the Architectural Committee . . .”
Please use the request form when Architectural Committee approval is needed. In accordance with the Covenants, the City will not issue a building permit unless approval is obtained. Architectural Committee approval does not mean automatic approval of a building permit. The structure must be in compliance with all Zoning and Building Regulations. It is always a good idea to contact the City Building and Zoning Department first to see if the structure would be in compliance with Zoning and Building Regulations.
If the structure is such that a City Building permit is not required, Architectural Committee approval is still mandatory. It is the personal responsibility of each member to comply with the Easements, Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. If you are in doubt if approval is needed or if you are in doubt if a fellow member has obtained approval, please contact the Board of Directors.
Please be advised that approval is valid for 12 months. If construction/installation does not begin within 12 months from the approval granted date, approval is automatically VOID. A new Approval Request form is then needed. If a member had obtained approval for a structure from a previous Architectural Committee more than 12 months ago and has not begun construction, that approval is no longer valid and a new Approval Request form must be submitted.
