Home Improvements

For your Home Improvement Needs

Improvements affecting the exterior appearance of your home, including landscaping, must be approved by LARMAC prior to installation. The LARMAC Aesthetics Review Committee (ARC) typically meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, and the plan submittal deadline is 5:00 p.m. the Tuesday prior to the meeting. Meeting dates and deadlines are listed below. Please submit your electronic application in .pdf form to contact.larmac@laderalife.com. (For homeowners living in condo/townhome sub-associations, please refer to the governing documents for your neighborhood for that HOA's specific requirements regarding aesthetic review).
