All property owners in Lake Livingston Village are subject to the governing documents of the Association. These documents are available under the “Governing Documents” tab of this website. Among other things, the Declaration for each Section in LLV requires that all proposed improvements to a Lake Livingston Village lot must be pre-approved by the Association’s Architectural Control Committee (“ACC”). This includes new construction; placement of any permitted mobile home, tiny home, RV, travel trailer, fifth wheel, or similar structure; any alterations to the exterior of existing structures; and construction or installation of accessory dwelling units, sheds, swimming pools, and fences
ACC applications generally require a survey and detailed site plan that indicates where proposed improvements are to be placed and samples of exterior materials and paint colors. A survey is not a hand drawing but a document prepared by a professional that confirms the location of all lot likes, easements, and setbacks. See below for examples of accepted documents:
Surveyors are often in demand and you may experience delays obtaining a survey so Owner and purchasers are encouraged to plan ahead.
ACC committee members will be paying particular attention to possible impacts on drainage so a drainage plan must be included for any improvements that will affect the movement of water. This includes plans to grade the land so that water flows into the ditch along the front of the lot and not toward the back or sides of the lot; installation of a minimum 15”-diameter culvert; and appropriate digging and grading of ditches.
The ACC has up to thirty days to approve or deny a completed application. All LLV Owners or potential owners are encouraged to plan carefully when purchasing and developing a LLV lot and to take their time completing their ACC application to avoid delays. The 30-day timeline does not commence until all application materials are received.
Any owner who commences construction prior to obtaining ACC approval is subject to enforcement actions, including litigation, and may be required to remove or replace unapproved improvements.
