Design Guidelines & Requirements

The following Design Guidelines and Requirements (DGRs) provide a framework for design in a clear, easy to use format. The DGRs apply to the entire community and are organized by area and type of use. Section 1 – American Architectural Precedent applies to all areas and uses. Subsequent sections expand upon the base requirements.
