Note: The Use Restrictions, attached as Exhibit "D" to the Amended and Restated Declaration, were amended and restated in their entirety.


GUIDELINES FOR SUSTAINABILITY and SUPPLEMENTAL GUIDELINES

The Guidelines for Sustainability are used in addition to the CC&Rs. These Guidelines begin by introducing the design objectives for High Desert and describe the approach to site planning, architecture and landscape architecture. The Guidelines are divided into the following sections:

-Site Planning
-Landscape
-Architecture
-Procedures for Approval Processing
-Construction Regulations


Following are the Guidelines for both Builders Homes and Estate Homes. For Supplements to these Guidelines pertaining to individual Villages within High Desert, please refer to the VILLAGE-SPECIFIC SUPPLEMENTAL DOCUMENTS below.

For ease of reference, the listings of Supplemental Declarations and Supplements to the Guidelines for Sustainability pertaining to specific Villages within High Desert have been combined and are listed below by type of Village and Village name. The Supplemental Declarations are adopted and recorded as part of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for High Desert Residential Properties and establish additional CC&Rs that affect particular Villages. The Supplemental Guidelines augment the Builders or Estate & Premier Guidelines for Sustainability, respectively, and provide more specific guidance and limitations as to architectural styles, colors and other limitations that are unique to certain Villages. 

Note: if there are no links provided under a village, then there are no supplemental documents written for that village at this time.

Following are the Guidelines for both Builders Homes and Estate Homes, as well as supplemental guidelines by Village in each category.
