Architectural Review Form

Fellow MacGregor Downs Homeowners:

We appreciate your commitment to maintaining the vision of our esteemed neighborhood as much as we enjoy working to keep it beautiful. The following projects require submission through the Architectural Board Committee prior to engaging in the new project:

  • Exterior Architectural changes to the exterior of the home including room additions, porch and deck construction, paint color changes, roof color changes, and roof dormer additions.  This includes the tear down of an existing home.
  • Landscape enhancements requiring grading and topographical alterations such as large planting beds, retaining walls, and fences.
  • Hardscape enhancements such as patios also require approval prior to construction.

Projects that do not require permission from the Architectural Board prior to completion are items that prove eminent harm to the integrity of your home.   Items such as rot repairs on the exterior of the home or tree removal do not require approval.

If you are in doubt for when your project requires approval please email your Architectural  Board representative, James Benson, at jbenson87@mac.com for more information.
