Planning to Build?

Dear Property Owner,

Welcome to Cedar Pass Ranch!

The Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) of Cedar Pass Ranch govern issues of home design and construction, as well as other improvements. The Architectural Committee handles most issues relating to building and improvement projects and is responsible for approving them. We strongly recommend that you read at least through Article IX of the CC&Rs before you have your plans drawn. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact a member of the Architectural Committee.

Please note that the following applies to any new construction (house or outbuilding) and exterior home additions and improvements, as well as fencing, landscaping, and more.

Important:
  • When submitting documents to the Architectural Committee for approval, please use the Project Application Form
  • Please also review the Project Application Process memorandum which gives a more detailed step-by-step description of the application process.
The Architectural Committee does not need a physical set of building plans for your project; an electronic copy is sufficient. The plans must include the following:
  • A site plan accurately showing the location of any structures indicating the distance from structures to the two nearest property lines (setback minimum is 50 feet);
  • The square footage of each floor with finished living space;
  • The surface finishes of all exterior walls and roofs (e.g., gray stucco, black shingles);
  • The pitch of each roof;
  • The orientation of garage doors (should be plainly shown on plans. Note that in most instances, garage doors may not face the street); and 
  • An indication of the maximum height of the structure from ground level (maximum is 30 feet).
When you submit your request for approval, please include the following:
  • An electronic copy of your plans. The plans must be engineered and must contain an engineer’s stamp. (Please note that plans should be approved by the Architectural Committee before submitting to the city for a building permit. This helps prevent cost and delays from resubmission to the city in case of changes that may be required by the Architectural Committee); and
  • A signed copy of the Project Application form.
The Architectural Committee will notify you by email when your plans are approved or if any changes are required.

Once construction of your project begins, please remember you are responsible for the following:
  • Ensuring that your builder complies with the CC&Rs;
  • Ensuring that a portable toilet and a trash receptacle are on the building site (contained inside the lot fencing, away from the road and road shoulder between the split-rail fence and road);
  • Immediately removing debris blown onto neighboring properties;
  • Having a paved or graveled driveway to prevent mud from being tracked onto the road;
  • Where necessary, creating provisions at the driveway and other areas to prevent storm and runoff water from accumulating; and
  • Assuring your contractor is aware that accessing your property through other lots without the permission of the lot owner is prohibited. Violations are considered to be trespass and may be reported to the County Sheriff.
The HOA will attempt to contact you the first time there is an infraction, but continuing problems could result in an assessment of fines.

Please do not hesitate to call a member of the Architectural Committee to discuss your plans. Residents of Cedar Pass Ranch have a variety of hobbies and interests, which we all try to pursue while being good neighbors and friends. We hope that you will also be able to pursue your dreams here. If we can help, let us know.
