What does the Homes Association/Art Jury do that the City can’t do?

The Art Jury approves the exterior appearance of all structures to meet a standard of “good of its’ kind” to maintain architectural integrity throughout the City. The City approves the way a structure is constructed. The Art Jury cannot approve a building whose construction does not conform to prevailing City codes or ordinances, and the City cannot make any judgment regarding the structure’s architectural appearance. The Homes Association’s authority is derived from the Protective Restrictions, while the City enforces building goals and standards through building codes and ordinances.
