Renovating Your Home

Any improvements or renovation work to your house that affects the exterior size, shape, or aesthetics must be submitted to the Tara Civic Association and the Architectural Control Committee for review and approval prior to the commencement of any work. You should download and become as familiar as possible with the set of Deeds and Restrictions for your filing before developing your plans. This will aid greatly in the approval process and allow you to get to work on your home improvement projects as quickly and painlessly as possible. Check out Before You Build above.
