Article 15 of the Red Book (abstracted
below) calls for a written request and written Board approval before
any change is made to the exterior of a unit..
Article 15 - Architectural Standards and Control
Please Note: In addition to this
form, "plans and specifications" (drawings, sketches, etc.) also need
to be separately submitted to the President. Further, as a matter of
neighborliness and courtesy, please discuss your proposed change with
other owners (both in your unit and/or who will visually affected).
(Their written endorsement is not required by the Red Book, but will
certainly simplify a Board decision.)
No Owner, occupant, lessee or lessor, or any other person may make
any encroachment onto the common elements, exterior change,
alteration, or construction (including planting or landscaping in
any form), nor erect, place, or post any sign, object, light, or
thing on the exterior of the buildings or any other common element,
or on any place or thing in the Condominium visible from the outside
of a Unit, without first obtaining the written approval of the Board
of Directors of the Association or its designee. The Board may
establish general exceptions to this section in duly adopted Rules
To obtain such permission for any aforementioned change or
alteration, the plans and specifications showing the nature, kind,
shape, height, materials, and location shall have been submitted in
writing to the Board or its designee.
[Remaining portion of Article 15 omitted. See Red Book.]
Completion of this online form (along with the seperate submission of
the "plans and specifications") will be considered fulfillment of the
written request mentioned in The Red Book. Please fill out this form

Please allow adequate time for your request to be considered and
