Why must I submit an architectural request?

There are many reasons to submit an architectural request form, the biggest being for your own protection. In the future, those who serve on the Board of Directors may choose to change the design guidelines. If a guideline were to change that puts you in violation, having an approved request allows you to be 'grandfathered', thus preventing you from being cited for the violation. Another reason for submitting the request is to demonstrate to other owners that you are complying with the community's architectural guidelines.

Do I need to get permits prior to any work being done?

If the work to be completed requires any permits or licenses from the city, county or state, it is your responsibility to research and obtain those permits and submit them along with an architectural request form. The Association, Board of Directors and management company are not responsible for researching or obtaining permits on behalf of the owner.

I have a question regarding a request, whom do I contact?

If you have a question about an architectural request form that you intend to submit or have already submitted, please contact the Community Manager.

I submitted an architectural request, but have not received an answer?

There are several possible reasons you may not yet have received a response regarding an architectural request form you submitted. If your request was received within days after the meeting, it could take upwards of 60 days for you to receive a response. It is also possible that your request was already reviewed and the response is being processed. If you would like an update on your request, please contact the Community Manager.

What types of changes can I make?

An owner may make non-structural additions, alterations and improvements within their unit without the prior approval of the Board. Hard flooring such as ceramic tile or wood should be installed with sound dampening devices.

Can I install a satellite dish or wireless network antenna?

Federal Communications Commission (F.C.C.) regulations prevent an Association from prohibiting such communcation devices. However, the Association can create rules and regulations regarding its size and placement on a lot or parcel. It is strongly recommended that such devices be installed as close to the ground as possible and out of view from a neighboring property, a common area or the street. If your installation requires the device to be visible, it is recommended that you submit an architectural request form to confirm placement of your device. A dish larger than one (1) meter (39 inches) is not allowed.

Please note that satellite dish devices may not be attached, affixed or mounted to any building exterior and must be mounted on a tripod or other device located on the floor of a patio or balcony and may not exceed the height of the balcony by more than three (3) feet.

Can I ...?

If you wish to make any change and that change is/will be visible from a neighboring property, a common area or the street, you should submit an architectural request form and get approval prior to beginning any work.
