Just a reminder

Thinking about adding a storage shed? How about a paver 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.

Please keep in mind of the bulk trash pick up dates. Bulk trash may only be placed out on your property 9 days before the next regularly scheduled pick up and any remaining landscape debris must be cleaned up after the trash has been removed. Bulk trash may NOT be placed in the common areas so please pay attention to property ownership when placing bulk trash out. The next upcoming bulk trash days are June 24th, July 29th, and August 26th.

It has been brought to the Associations attention over the past few weeks that private trash cans are being used to dump landscape debris and trash from other residents and/or their contractors. Please use your own trash can for waste materials and remind your contractors to dispose of the trash/landscape debris responsibly.

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