Yes. The Architectural Review Board (ARB) provides standards for homeowners to follow when making improvements/changes to their property. Some projects require approval before they are started and some are preapproved providing that they comply with the ARB standards. Review ARB standards to determine what requires application and approval. Email management at the community center if you need to have anything approved or what the limits are before starting to do any outside construction projects or improvements to your home.
When in doubt, apply to the ARB. You could be assessed fees for starting a project without obtaining prior ARB approval.
