Covenant Restrictions

Taken together, the covenants for all units share a great deal in common as well as certain restrictions that are unique or shared by only a few units. The ACC enforces the spirit and intent of the covenants as revealed by all of the covenants taken together and applies it uniformly to all units. The ACC has prepared a series of Design Guidelines covering some of the more common covenant requirements. Where the covenants for a specific unit include specific unique prohibitions, those prohibitions take precedence over the Design Guidelines and are enforced accordingly by the ACC.

Please review the Declarations of Restrictions for your Unit and then follow the ACC’s Design Guidelines as provided herein.

 GENERAL RESTRICTIONS

 The following restrictions apply in general to all units:

  1. Setbacks establish the minimum areas of open space.  Generally, the requirements are 45 feet from any lot line bordering on a street and 15 feet from side and rear lot lines.  Different setbacks are established for certain units.
  2. Native vegetation is to be left undisturbed where practical and restored if disturbed. 
  3. Building height is restricted to no more than 26’ and full two-story structures are prohibited.  Restrictions are tighter in certain units.
  4. Areas enclosed by walls and fences must be adjacent to buildings and kept at a minimum in order to retain the maximum open space.
  5. The style or design of residences must be in harmony with their surroundings.  
    Generally, that which is harmonious is that which tends to blend into the natural terrain and vegetation, mimicking the colors and shapes of the landscape. Structures that blend with their surroundings are acceptable, those that stand out from their surroundings are not.
  6. Exterior lighting must conform to the Bernalillo County light pollution ordinance.
