Changes to the yard/ exterior of the home.
The Arch Modification process is as follows.
If you’d like to update ANYTHING outside your home, it must be approved by the HOA first.
This includes playhouses and other structures. You can find all this information in the design guidelines.
New Architectural Modifications require forms D-1 (Application) and D-2 (Neighbor's Signatures) along with 2 copies of plans (all plans must be drawn to scale and printed on the appropriate size paper that reflects a true scale) 1 scaled down to fit in the file, and colored photographs of components being used. If you are installing synthetic turf, please submit the product specifications, e.g. face weight and pile height. Plans and forms should be submitted to Nikole Suarez at the Ranch House for processing. Plans are forwarded to the landscape architect for review (current review process is approximately 4 - 6 weeks). Initial review fees are paid in escrow. There is a fee for re-submittal of plans that ranges from $75 - $100. Once your plans have been approved and installation is completed, please complete and submit form D-3 (Notice of Completion). Once this is received a final inspection will be scheduled with the landscape architect.
You will need to submit the following documents for review by the landscape architect:
1. D-1 & D-2
2. 2 copies of scaled construction drawings and 1 copy scaled down to fit in the file.
3. Check in the amount of $150 or $200 for the review fee (if it’s just the front yard or just the back yard the fee is $150 or $200 if it’s both the front and back yard), ***FOR HOMES IN THE ESTATES, ARTESIAN RIDGE, OR CERRO DEL SUR THE FEES ARE $250 for front or rear yard OR $300 for front & rear.
*** Please make checks payable to Del Sur Community Association.***
4. You can drop off the plans in the drop box located outside the front door at the Ranch House.
