Painting/straing of any structure/project that includes a change in color require an application as well as roof replacement that includes a change in color. Projects that do not require an application: maintenance and repair projects to any improvements that do not include a change in color. making outside structural repairs or changes, adding a storage shed or fence, or repainting. New homes on properties require a driveway permit. Sections of the Fairview Forest Restrictive Covenants and Regulations include updated architectural requirements. The architectural guidelines deal with these topics as well as new construction and home improvements and can be reviewed online.

Address Changes, New Property Owners
Property owners are asked to email FFHA if they have not received recent newsletters or if the address information was not correct. Often, property owners who do not live in the community forget to advise the Association of address changes and therefore do not receive information and mailings regarding Fairview Forest. Be sure to send an email with any new mailing address information.
And, if you're a new property owner, let us hear from you with an email so we can add you to the database and mailing list.
