Design Review Applications

We are receiving a large number of applications that are incomplete which causes a delay for your project. The committee has 30 days to review a COMPLETE application once received. How can you ensure that your application is complete? Follow these steps:

1. Have you reviewed the Design Review Guidelines at to know what is and isn't allowed?

2. Does your application include drawings of the property and pictures of what you are wanting to complete? Does it include the estimate of the work so the committee can review the detailed plan?

3. For house painting, did you allocate which paint color goes on the body, the trim, the garage door (which MUST be the same color as the body or trim NOT an accent color), and where the accent color is being painted?

4. Vendors CANNOT submit an application on your behalf. Please do NOT allow the solar companies (or paint companies or concrete companies) to do this as these are being sent back to the companies telling them that we will not accept them. Why? Because there are legal ramifications to design review requests and if the company goofs on your behalf, YOU are held responsible.

5. If you haven't received an automated email within two weeks of the submittal of your application stating the application is pending, PLEASE reach out to our office as we may not have received it.

6. Please ensure that you are using the correct form located at Your application will be sent back if not on the correct form.
