The Committee is authorized to grant selective variances for things such as location, height, number of improvements, materials, etc., but the owner must request this variance, giving reasons why it should be granted so that the Committee can make a reasoned decision.
The formal request and approval process is necessary to assure that every owner’s desire to improve his or her property can be given due process without discrimination. It will also provide the owner(s), the Committee and the Association Board with a permanent record of actions taken under the Declaration.
A number of owners have already requested and been granted approval to add improvements to their property by following the procedures outlined in the Declaration of Protective Covenants, but there are some owners who have expressed surprise and consternation about having to “ask permission” to improve their own property. Your subdivision was developed and made subject to a Declaration of Protective Covenants and all owners become obligated to follow the terms of the Declaration when they received the deed to their property. The simple forms below have been created to make it easier for all owners to submit request for improvements.
