January 30th, 2011 — Architecture, Website News

The design guidelines and rules offered in the design review manual have been developed in an effort to maintain and compliment the natural physical character of Fountaingrove and to achieve a consistent level of review by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). New construction, exterior modifications and major landscape projects must be submitted for preliminary review and must be received ten (10) workdays prior to the next scheduled meeting. The ACC meetings are held on the third Tuesday every month. If you have any questions, please call Gigi LaFontaine at 575.5171.
