Deer Ridge Homeowners'
Per the Deer Ridge Restrictive Covenants,
the DRHA board has the sole and exclusive right to approve or disapprove home
plans for aesthetic (not structural) reasons. Plans submitted are reviewed to
insure that they comply with the Deer Ridge Restrictive Covenants.
Potential homeowners are required to submit plans for approval to the Deer Ridge
Homeowners' Association (DRHA) at least 30 days prior to construction.
Five items are required from the potential
homeowner in order for DRHA to review their home plans.
- A complete set of house plans showing
all four exterior side views (elevations). DRHA will retain these plans
to insure that the home is built as approved.
- A completed and signed DRHA
Architectural Review Checklist (see below). This checklist summarizes the
restriction requirements and makes it easier for DRHA to review the plans in a
timely manner. Note that exterior finish materials and colors are a
required part of this checklist. You may be asked to supply material
- A site plan (drawing) showing how the
house will be situated on the lot. Setbacks must be indicated on the
drawing, as well as the location of driveways, walkways, fences, retaining
walls, outbuildings and pools. This site plan will be retained by DRHA.
- A landscape plan (drawing) showing the
location of the mailbox, planting areas, exterior lighting and propane tank
(burial required). This landscape plan will be retained by DRHA.
Note that it is acceptable to include the landscape plan elements on the site
- A construction deposit (check made out
to DRHA) in the amount of $1500. This deposit is collected to help
insure that the construction site is kept reasonably clean and that the home
is built as approved. If the deposit is not forfeited during
construction, $750 is returned when the home is occupied, and the remaining
$750 is returned when basic landscaping (grass and foundation plantings) are
Once these five items are received, the DRHA Architectural Review Committee will meet and will either approve or
disapprove the plans. The potential homebuilder will receive formal
approval/disapproval via letter, along with the DRHA
Home Construction Guidelines (see below). The homeowner should provide a
copy of the DRHA Home Construction Guidelines to their builder/contractor.
