The Development and Architectural Control Committee (DACC), with the help of volunteers, has revised and streamlined the previous "Regulations and Guidelines for Building at Coolfont" (December 2003). The new document, "Design Guidelines and Building Regulations," is organized into two sections: “Design Guidelines” for modifications to existing houses and “Building Regulations” for new houses and substantial modifications to existing houses.

Sections were updated to include new building materials and practices, such as composite decking, metal roofing, polyethylene septic tanks, and conditioned crawl spaces. Regulations for garages and carports were revised to allow separate structures, with thorough DACC review. The regulations for building new houses were streamlined and utility connection information was updated. The applications in the Appendices will also be available as separate PDF forms.

Please review the document before voting. If approved, the Design Guidelines and Building Regulations would take effect on October 1, 2021.

The Board recommends approval of Design Guidelines and Building Regulations.
