Modifications Committee & New Construction Committee
High Desert houses

Modifications Committee

Before making any changes to the exterior of your home, check with the Modifications Committee first. The Modifications Committee will make sure that your plans conform to High Desert standards.  The goal is to make sure all modifications preserve aesthetics and property values.  This is done by following the High Desert Guidelines for Sustainability developed for each of the villages.

There is a great deal to consider and homeowners aren't expected to know every nuance, so the Modifications Committee is poised to help navigate the process.  It all starts by filling out and submitting the Modifications Request Form. (See menu button to the left.)

New Construction Committee

The NCC is charged with making sure all new development meets High Desert architectural and design standards.  The goal is to preserve the aesthetic character and value of our community.  This is done by following the High Desert Guidelines for Sustainability developed for each of the villages.  In order to ensure that new homes are built according to High Desert standards and meet certain governmental requirements, the Association requires a construction deposit of $8,000 for Estate and Premier Lots and $4,000 for Builder Lots.  The balance is refunded, less fees, after final NCC approval.

Those proposing new home construction must start the process by contacting the High Desert Community Association Manager at at the HDROA office, 10555 Montgomery Blvd. NE, Building 1, Suite 100, 505-314-5862.  The office will provide you with the starting point for your project.  Since new construction activity is currently fairly low, the committee will arrange meetings on demand to review the process and arrange the required reviews.
