Exterior Modification Application and Approval Process

As the weather warms up and homeowners spend more time outdoors, spring and summer become ideal seasons for undertaking various projects like landscaping, painting, and creating patios, among others. However, it's important to note that any exterior modifications to your home must receive approval through Architectural Controls. Here are the five steps to follow in the Architectural Controls process:

Step 1: Obtain an application from our Klahanie website or pick up a physical copy at the KHOA office.

Step 2: Complete the form by providing your contact information and a detailed description of the project. Additionally, include a "before" picture as part of the site plan requirements. Provide dimensions, setbacks, and the project's relationship to adjacent houses. Attach brochures and materials that support your project, and obtain neighbor acknowledgment signatures (these signatures serve as notice of your project's intent but do not constitute project approvals).

Step 3: Submit the completed form to or drop it off at the main office. The review process typically takes 3-7 business days, and you will be contacted via email.

Step 4: Upon approval, you will receive an email confirmation, and the approval letter and permit will be sent by mail or made available for pick-up upon request. Remember to prominently display your permit in the window throughout the duration of your project.

Step 5: If you need to request an extension, cancel a project, or submit the Appendix B form for a completed project, fill out the appropriate form. If submitting the form for a completed project, include a photo of the finished work.

Please be aware that there might be delays in the application review process due to high demand during this time of year. Therefore, it is important to plan accordingly and submit your completed applications well in advance of your desired construction date. Keep in mind that accurate and detailed descriptions in your application are crucial to avoid delays in the review process.
