design review information

The Design Review Committee (DRC) is tasked with ensuring that a consistent standard of design and aesthetic quality are maintained throughout the Gateway Greens community.  The consistent application and maintenance of these standards for each home helps protect the long-term property values of all homes within our common interest community.  

The standards that are applied by the DRC are published in the Design Review Manual and were among the documents that all homeowners agreed to when they bought a home within Gateway Greens.

Owners are reminded that DRC approval is required BEFORE any new construction or exterior alteration is made to properties within the Gateway Greens community.

Owners can apply for DRC approval using this online form or by returning a completed application to the Property Manager. (Please note that owners within the Villas should use this form.)

Listed below are various types of alterations, construction, repairs and maintenance items that require DRC approval BEFORE work can proceed.  This list is not all-inclusive and, if Owners are unsure if their project requires DRC approval, then please Ask the Property Manager.

Please submit your DRC application, along with any attachments or supporting documentation, as soon as possible.  Due to Florida law1, the DRC cannot act on applications between its monthly meetings.  Meetings dates, times and locations must have proper notice and be open to all members.

The Design Review Committee normally meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.  See the Calendar to confirm the next meeting date.  Complete applications received at least one week prior to the scheduled meeting will be evaluated at the scheduled meeting.  Some applications may require a visit to the property by a member of the DRC.  All applications will be evaluated and Owners will have a decision regarding acceptance, conditional acceptance or rejection within 45 days of submission of the complete application.
