Architecture Reminders 
Wanting to make updates to your home?  Great! 
In order to ensure the work aligns with our Bylaws, residents must remember to contact the Architecture Chairperson regarding any exterior changes.  Projects must be approved by the architecture committee before the work begins, EVEN IF YOU'VE OBTAINED APPROVAL FROM THE CITY.  This includes any exterior changes or additions, new roofs, fences, landscape changes, driveways, patios, decks, painting the exterior of your home (even if it is the same color choice) and any project for the outside of your home.  Bylaws can be found here.

Wondering what requires a building permit?

According to the City of Lenexa website, any remodeling or construction projects in your home that relate to framing, electrical, mechanical or plumbing require a building permit.  Cosmetic changes such as painting, cabinetry, carpeting, siding, lawn sprinklers and landscaping improvements do not require a permit.  For additional information, please refer to the City's Remodeling Project Permits website. Please keep in mind any permits obtained from the city will also need approval from the board.

Ash Trees
There are several Ash trees in the neighborhood that are a risk hazard for the sidewalks and streets that need action from our neighbors. The city of Lenexa may take action, so it is important to remove any hazardous trees, especially near sidewalks and streets as soon as possible.
Neighborhood & Community
As schools dismiss for summer and people are out enjoying the summer weather, please remember to keep a watchful eye for neighbors of all ages on foot, bikes or scooters!
