Beverlywood Design Review Applications

Application, Fee and Construction Process

After finding the appropriate application(s) for your project and submitting to the home owner’s association, your completed 
package will begin the process of review. All submissions, both new and amended, are due to the HOA by the 15th day of the month (if the 15th falls on a weekend, they are due the following Monday). A list of submission materials needed for review can be found here.

Applications are reviewed at the next committee or Board meeting, depending upon the status of the project. These meetings are held once every month, and each project is reviewed at the same time. Home owners and architects should consider the approval process when scheduling their project timeline.

Once a month, the Design Review Committee (DRC) and/or Landscape Review Committee (LRC) review and discuss the applications,considering CC&R’s, Rules and Regulations and established guidelines (available below). These volunteers determine if each project aligns with the character and ideals defined by these standards. Reviewed by the committee and a design consultant, the project is held to a vote and is either: recommended to go before the HOA Board of Directors,or a list of corrections and suggestions are provided for the project. These should be addressed before resubmittal. If a project is denied twice by the committees, it continues to the Board for final review and voting.

At the following Board meeting, the project is reviewed again and held to a vote. Approval of the project (conditionally or without conditions),
allows for submittal to the city. If approval is not granted by the Board, the project will return to the respective committees for further review where concerns and suggestions may be resolved. Home owners with projects ready for Board review are highly encouraged to attend Board meetings, where the project will be considered for final approval.

When approved by the Board and city, construction progress will be monitored by the HOA during site visits. All construction must comply with the standards upheld during the review process, and follow the plans submitted at final approval. Any and all changes after final approval must be reviewed by the respective committee and approved by the Board prior to construction.
