Chapter 190 Florida Statutes authorizes Community Development Districts to adopt rules necessary to enforce guidelines for external architectural control. The Community Standards Department is committed to upholding the high standards of our community’s design, construction and aesthetics. Architectural Review ensures every home modification is constructed of appropriate materials and built to complement the natural and man-made surroundings. The Architectural Review process is purely administrative in nature. The issuance of permits or variances is through the appropriate city or county building department.
