Did you know that there are covenants and guidelines at Dakota Dunes regarding additions or alterations affecting the exterior of your home? In addition, the Dakota Dunes Community Association has various use restrictions. Some of the key items affected by covenants and guidelines are noted below. Please make sure you submit any exterior improvement plans to the Design Review Committee for approval before you start.
The Design Guidelines for Dakota Dunes have been established to implement the quality of standards for the community. They serve as the framework of design concepts and standards for the construction of a variety of housing types. They have been established to compliment the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&R’s) for the Dakota Dunes Community Association.
The Design Review Committee (DRC) consists of appointees by Dakota Dunes Development Company who review and approve the design and initial construction of homes. In addition, the DRC facilitates the requests for any modifications to residences after the initial construction. The following is a list of key items but not all items which require DRC review and approval:
Additions or alterations affecting the home exterior such as:
Exterior lighting or decorative items
Fencing or walls
Landscaping changes or enhancements
Painting or roof replacement
Play equipment, e.g., swing sets, trampolines

Each of these items is referred to in detail in the CC&R’s and the Design Guidelines. They are listed here as a quick checklist to remind you of actions that require submittal to the DRC. Modification request forms are available at the Dakota Dunes Welcome Center and at www.dakotadunes.com under Community Association.
