What is design review for?
Whether it's painting, planting, or even updating a security door, all exterior changes to your home require approval from the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) before the work starts to make sure all updates align with our community's design guidelines. The guidelines protect our property values and preserve the unique character of our community. No improvements may be installed or constructed, and no alterations, repairs, front or backyard landscaping, or other work done in any way that alters the exterior appearance of any property or exterior of the home without approval from the ARC as stated in our Tortosa CC&R's.
How to submit an application:
Review the Architectural Guidelines for information on approved plants, gazebo size, colors, and more!
Submit a Architectural Review Application, plot plan, and supporting documents via this user-friendly link: Architectural Review Application Link. We encourage all applications to be submitted online, as this helps with a faster response from the Architectural Review Committee.
What to expect after submitting an application?
Please check your email for any additional information that may be needed. After a submittal is accepted by the ARC is complete and meets all stated submittal requirements, the ARC’s approval or disapproval shall be given within a reasonable timeframe, within 45 days of its receipt of application. However, the failure of the ARC to respond within this time frame shall in no way be deemed approval of the proposed improvements.
