Submit your plans BEFORE you start building.
As a land owner in Rustic Hills Acres, your legally binding covenants require you to submit plans to the RHIA Architectural and Protective Covenants Committee before building ANY STRUCTURE: dwelling, outbuilding, wall, fence, etc. Changes or modifications to an existing building or structure require approval as well. If it has a foundation (mailbox, flagpole, etc.), obtain RHIA approval by submitting requests to: email@example.com. The Committee generally approves or disapproves plans within 30 days.
Plans for buildings must also go to the Regional Building Department, where they are expected to meet Regional Building Codes. RHIA generally does not support variances to RBC requirements. Regional approval alone is not sufficient - our Covenants require that you also get architectural approval from the RHIA.
