Yes. Most property changes require approval of the OFL Architecture Review Committee. The OFL Covenants (Article IX) require that if you are making any changes to your property that you submit a plan before doing so. The plan should be delivered to the Architecture Review Committee for review and approval. The Board has established several architecture policies to promote harmony and enjoyment for all OFL residents.
People often ask when do I need to submit a plan and when do I not need to do so? Many changes will obviously have no problems being approved but the Covenants clearly state any change should be reviewed. The best action is to submit a plan on any change no matter how minor it seems to be. Best to be safe than sorry.
