All changes to the outward appearance of your home or property must be approved. These changes include but are not limited to:
Additions, modifications, alterations, as well as removal of structures.
Structures include but are not limited to all exterior home elements, fencing, patios, patio structures such as pergolas, outdoor kitchens and fireplaces, decks, piers, railings, covered boat slips, driveways, tree removal and some forms of landscaping.
Note - This requirement applies to maintenance work, as well. For example, if you replace a rotten board on your deck, then decide to refinish the surface, if the stain is not identical to the original stain, contact the Project Manager.
