Architecture Review and Landscape Committee

MISSION STATEMENT:

The Architecture Review and Landscape Committee works to preserve the appearance, ambiance, quality of life and property values of all lot owners in Little Falls Village. To achieve this, the Committee reviews all requests for changes in landscaping or to the exterior of the house, and makes sure the Covenants and Deed Restrictions are followed.
Procedure:
Residents must request permission before undertaking any changes such as fences, decks, porches, driveways, walks, walls, landscaping, bushes and trees. Necessary changes must, to the extent practical, be performed such that the condition and appearance is equal to and identical to the original as constructed. Any exterior changes to a home including but not limited to the replacement of trees, bush-es, driveways, etc.… need to be sent to Ginny Schiavelli; Architecture Review and Landscape Committee prior to the start of the work. The e-mail address is vfschiavelli@comcast.net, who will then forward the request to the A & L Committee members for review and approval. In the subject line of the email, please indicate the property address and type of request (meaning Architecture vs. Landscape). The owner will receive written notice of the acceptance or denial of the request.
