Do I need separate architectural approval for improvements within the Duke peripheral strip?2020-12-22T02:29:48+00:00

Yes. Duke must review any plans for improvements within the peripheral strip. Currently, the architectural review committee has coordinated with Duke to review the same plans that are submitted to the Association. Note: permitted improvements within the Duke peripheral strip are greatly limited and you must seek permission from Duke to remove trees in the peripheral strip that exceed three inches in diameter three feet off the ground. Experience has shown that it is much better to seek permission if there are questions.

If I want to make improvements to my property do I have to get approval?2021-02-07T22:05:39+00:00

Except for certain landscaping changes, any improvement to a lot within the Association requires approval by the Association through its architectural review committee. Owners are strongly encouraged to submit an architectural application for any improvements even if it is a question of whether one is required. Architectural applications may be found on this website. Note: the architectural review committee has 15 days to review the application, so please get the application in early to help prevent delay with your desired project. Link to ARC Information and Request Form
