Architectural Review

The CFA Board’s Architectural Review Committee is responsible for reviewing and approving construction projects. The committee provides an enforcement mechanism for CC&Rs covering Foothills properties, and helps preserve the architectural integrity of Foothills properties. Foothills residents who plan to build or remodel should contact their Area Representative or the Architectural Committee.

Plan Submittal Requirements for Foothills Homes

The mission of the CFA is to preserve the lifestyle we all enjoy in the Foothills. Part of that mission is enforcing zoning and development restrictions as new homes are added to existing neighborhoods and older homes are remodeled or enlarged. All property owners with CC&Rs in Areas 1-6 are required to submit construction plans for review and approval by the CFA Architectural Review Committee prior to starting the project. Once the CFA approves the plans and you have received all applicable building permits, your project may proceed. You must notify the Architectural Review Committee of changes in your initial plans during the course of the project and the Committee must approve all changes.
Please submit all of the following items to complete the submittal process: 
  1. Name of property owner and appropriate contact information
  2. Address of property
  3. Lot number
  4. 2 copies of a current “As-Built” survey completed by a registered surveyor locating all existing improvements including, but not limited to, house, garage, patios, ramadas, guest homes, sheds, pools, hardscape, walls, fences, and solar facilities (if ground mounted)
  5. 2 copies of a site plan of the entire property showing all existing structures and the placement of proposed improvements within the 30 ft. required setback
  6. 2 copies of the building plan view of the proposed work
  7. 2 copies of all elevations showing the architectural style and clearly indicating the proposed heights (showing the maximum height above the adjacent grade), and callouts for finish materials.
  8. Color samples of paint and other finish materials in the form of a plaster color chip or paint chip or a description of commonly used natural materials.
  9. Re-vegetation plan.
APPROVAL OF CONSTRUCTION PLANS IS AN ARCHITECTURAL APPROVAL BY THE CFA BOARD ONLY; THEREFORE, PLANS STILL ARE SUBJECT TO MUNICIPAL ZONING APPROVAL.
If you have questions or would like to arrange a place and time to drop off your plans, please contact the Architectural Review Committee.
