Plan Review Checklist

The Association has compiled this Guidance Checklist in alignment with the detailed Declaration of Covenants which governs all construction in the Oakford Golf Club development. For clarity, this list is not intended to be all inclusive or replace the Declaration of Covenants, which remains the ultimate document of policy. However, the following guidance list represents commonly overlooked requirements. For clarity, the intent of this guidance list is to facilitate communication and understanding, while minimizing common errors that ultimately delay construction approvals.

Front Set back – minimum 50 ft. from the front Lot line

Side Set back - minimum 25 ft. to a side Lot line

Rear Setbacks - minimum 30 ft. to a rear Lot line

Corner lot setback- minimum 50 ft. for any portion of the house or either road

• Board will require signed and sealed drainage plan from professional civil engineer if elevations exceed 30”. As provided by the Declaration, Board may still reject elevation even with engineers’ plan if it votes that the elevation is too dramatically different from surrounding lots, creating a negative aesthetic impact.

Containment of Utility Equipment: • Well, water treatment, HVAC and pool equipment must be hidden from view by fencing or shrubbery for aesthetic and sound dampening benefit. If fencing or walls are used, the height shall not exceed approximately 6 inches above equipment.

Absolutely no fencing, hedges or walls are permitted without the written approval of the Board. No fence contiguous with the golf coarse are expressly prohibited by the deed restrictions.

Chimneys: Constructed of brick or stucco only.
