Does the City require an approval letter from a condominium or homeowners association?

If you live in a community with an homeowners’ association (HOA), the HOA’s approval may be required prior to commencing the work related to this permit application.  Please contact your HOA and verify if you need HOA approval and if so, get HOA approval prior to commencing any work.  A permit issued by the City does not allow you to violate any HOA covenants and restrictions or avoid the HOA or architectural review board approval process.  The City is not responsible for ensuring that you obtain HOA approval or that the permitted work is in compliance with your HOA’s restrictive covenants and governing documents.
