Any improvements to a lot or structure exterior must be submitted for approval to the Architecture Committee.  The specifics are found in the Design Standards but, as a rule of thumb, if an Owner plans to install or make any change to something neighbors see – a deck, a roof, a play structure, landscaping, stucco, paint – the change should blend with our surroundings, comply with the Design Standards, and must be submitted for approval.

To seek Committee approval, please submit an application by either completing the Improvement Application – Online Submission or printing, completing, scanning and emailing the PDF Improvement Application – Printable Form to the Architecture Committee Chair at acchphoa@gmail.com.  The committee will review and respond to the application within 30 days.

Wildfire Mitigation is the reduction of natural vegetation in the area immediately around the home to protect structures from an approaching wildfire. Wildfire mitigation can also reduce the potential of a structure fire spreading to surrounding vegetation. The Colorado Springs Fire Department recommends mitigating ten (10) feet immediately around the home and suggests thirty (30) feet, but not to extend beyond the property line.
