What must be reviewed and approved?
The key word to remember is change. If you are planning an exterior change to your property including tree removal, that change may need to be reviewed and approved. Maintaining or refurbishing an already-approved exterior feature does not need review or approval as long as it retains its original DRB-approved design. You may want to contact RA staff to verify that the item(s) has been approved.

The guidelines are the best source of specific information related to your project. Each guideline states its objective/goal and gives the criteria for each type of review. The guideline also lists specific materials and information that must be included with an application.
