Mission Statement and Charter for the

Architecture Committee

 (Updated and Approved by ECIA Board on March 20, 2014)

The mission of Architecture Committee (AC) is to support the ECIA Board in implementing the Amended and Restated Protective Covenants and Building Restrictions for Eldorado at Santa Fe (Covenants) and Guidelines for Protective Covenants and Building Restrictions for Eldorado at Santa Fe (Guidelines) as residents and developers submit plans for the construction, addition or remodeling of dwellings and other structures covered under the covenants and guidelines.

The AC shall grant approval for projects the AC deems consistent with the Covenants and Guidelines.  The AC shall advise, assist and provide recommendations to the Board based on projects which require and are eligible for a variance to the Covenants and Guidelines which balance the needs of individual residents with the architectural values of the community at large, as described in the Covenants and Guidelines.
