Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q. How do I get approval for changes to the exterior of my house?A. Changes to buildings, roofs, fences, driveways, walls or any other items identified in Article V & VI of the Fairwood Firs Covenants are governed by the Architectural Control Committee. Homeowners must receive written approval from the Architectural Control Committee prior to making any changes to these items.
To request approval the homeowner submits an application (found on the website) and any pertinent plans and/or specification to the Architectural Control Committee at least 30 days prior to the planned work. The Committee will review the information and render a decision. If the homeowner does not receive approval after 30 days of an Architectural Control Committee substantiated submittal of a full application, approval will not be required and the related Covenants shall be deemed to have been fully complied with.
