Frequently Asked Questions

Contact the architectural committee BEFORE completing architectural plans for a new home or addition. We are particularly concerned with visual harmony, setbacks, and landscaping buffers.

Yes. Contact the architectural committee BEFORE installing a new fence or significantly altering landscaping that may impact your buffer. We do not allow chain link or wire mesh fences in locations that are visible from an adjacent roadway.

Yes. The Mirrormont Covenants are designed to help preserve the unique quality of the neighborhood and natural screening between homes. Contact us with any setback questions pertaining to patios or other landscaping features.
