Just a reminder

Thinking about adding a storage shed? How about a paved walkway in your rear yard? Maybe even some new landscape plants and boulders? Did you know that per the CC&R’s any modification, addition, or visible change (except the repaint of your home with preapproved colors) to a site or building exterior of a residential property requires written approval from the Design Review Committee? The process to submit is fairly simple: just fill out the Architectural Submittal Form (located online), include a plat map, plans and photos of the proposed work and submit to Taylor Gorman, Community Standards Administrator either via email at tgorman@aamaz.com or drop off at the McDowell Center. Taylor will receive the applica­tions and put them on the agenda for the upcoming DRC meeting for review and consider of approval. Feel free to contact Taylor with any questions regarding the Architectural Approval Process.

As always we appreciate your efforts to keep the community beautiful.
