For information about what does/does not require approval, please refer to the Residential Improvement Guide (RIGs) or call the Community Improvement Services Department at 303-471-8821 or email prior to beginning any work.

Home Improvement Request - Steps & Deadlines

Steps for Getting Project Approval

1. Forms: Choose the appropriate form from the drop-down menu. All the requirements listed must be contained in the submission, upload all attachments, pay the required fee and ensure a confirmation receipt is received.

  • Most submittals include a fee that varies based on the complexity of the submittal. Fees range from $5-$100
  • If the submittal for the home requires multiple improvements at one time, please call our office directly at 303-471-8821 or email [email protected]  to work with a staff member to ensure the most efficient way to submit the improvements
  • If you receive an error message, your attachments are too large. In this case, fill out the form, pay the fee, and send all attachments to [email protected]. Make sure your address is in the subject line along with the title of the home improvement to ensure we can link the information appropriately. 
  • Please note that if all the information required in the form is not received, the exterior improvement will be automatically denied until the required information is received. 

2. Completed Application/Deadline: The HRCA has 30 days in which to decide regarding a submittal. Submit EARLY to ensure you are meeting HRCA requirements, contract deadlines, and other obstacles that may occur.

  • Extensive or complex improvement requests will need to be approved for review by the Architecture Committee and due by noon the Friday before the next scheduled meeting (the first and third Wednesday of every month).
