Gainey Ranch Community Architectural Committee

Gainey Ranch, as a master planned community, was positioned to be at the forefront by offering high quality, value and lifestyle. A key to accomplishing this objective has been the architectural guidelines and its enforcement by keeping a constant vigilance on the details.

Please go to General Rules and Standards under GRCA for specific community guidelines, CCR’s and Bylaws as well as the Master Guidelines.

The principal objective of the architectural guidelines has been to protect property values and overall design quality of the development. Historically, developments with controls frequently appreciate in value faster than units in more conventional communities that do not have architectural controls. This protection has been accomplished by restricting individual owners from making exterior changes to their properties, which would detract from Gainey Ranch’s visual appearance and its contemporary community environment.

The Gainey Ranch Architectural Guidelines require the submittal of an Architectural Committee Application, including two copies of the plans, prior to making any improvements, alterations, repairs or changes which in any way alter the exterior appearance.

Architectural Committee Applications

Please see Forms under GRCA for all applications.

In an effort to fulfill Gainey Ranch’s objective of offering superior quality, value and lifestyle, the Board of Directors has retained an Architectural Committee consisting of consulting architects to review all plans and perform their functions to confirm a consistent quality level concerning all Gainey Ranch improvements. The GRCA charges a processing fee to help defer its costs to review submittals. The Architectural Committee Coordinator can be contacted at the GRCA Administration Office, (480) 951-0321, to obtain an Architectural Committee Application form and to determine the processing fee structure.

All exterior changes are subject to Architectural Committee review.

The plans are reviewed by both the GRCA Architectural Committee and the Architectural Committee for the Satellite Association where the improvement or change is proposed. Both committees must approve the submittal before the application can be approved and the work started.

The Architectural Committee is authorized to charge a penalty of $450.00 for any improvements or changes started or completed prior to the required committee approval. It may also be necessary to remove any unapproved improvements whenever the committees do not ultimately approve such work.
