Whether first-time homeowners or long-time residents, we all have a hefty investment in where we live in the southeast. So it’s important to preserve the value of our residences, as well as the surrounding common areas we all share, by keeping buildings well maintained and in a style that compliments adjacent structures and landscaping.
When our homes’ exteriors are in good shape and the grass is cut, the hedges trimmed, the trash picked up and the sidewalks and roads well maintained, the community is attractive to prospective buyers and renters, and property values are preserved.
Our homeowner association’s design review program is a big part of sustaining the community’s appearance and property values. While our design guidelines have some limitations, they allow enough flexibility for individual expression.
Please contact a member of the association’s design review committee or the board if you’re considering a project for your home that involves painting the exterior or trim; redesigning or installing landscaping; constructing a fence, adding a secondary structure (like a garden shed, dog house, swing set or garage); or installing solar panels, ham radio antennas or satellite antenna.
The design review committee will provide you with the association’s architectural guidelines, application instructions and review procedures. The DRC will work with you to make your residence more livable while preserving the community’s value.
