How to proceed:
1st—Read your CR&R’s, Article 14. If you don’t have a set of your
CR&R’s, download them from our website (www.flechacaida.org) or call our
office (327-4240) to have a set sent to you.
2nd—Draw up your plans with exact measurements—including lists or
samples of materials and colors. Make sure your plans show the proposed improvements
on a site plan of your lot, indicating the 40 foot setback. All plans for new
construction or remodeling in any of the Flechas
must show the proposed location of all exterior utilities septic tank(s),
leach fields and heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment, and the
method and means of concealing any exposed exterior equipment, in order to be
considered for review. If these items
are not shown, permission to proceed will be denied, until the above criteria
are met. In the event you are planning
to attach an outbuilding to your primary dwelling structure, the new construction
must comply with Pima County building codes, and the exterior materials and
colors must be reasonably close to the architectural style of the original
dwelling. If you are asking for a variance (if there is encroachment into the
setback), we ask that you get your neighbors to sign the plans indicating
their approval. If you have any questions regarding this step contact
our office (327-4240).
3rd— Submit a
set of digital plans (pdf format) to the FCHOA Board of Directors, for
examination by the Architectural Review Committee. This examination is for the sole purpose of
determining the suitability of the exterior design as it relates to the Flecha Caida desire for
residential architecture within the limits of the Flechas.
Upon their receipt by this committee, you will be directed to submit two sets
of plans to the Board’s Architectural Consultant, whose name, phone number
and address will be supplied to you at that time. There will be a nominal fee for his
All permanent construction
and any remodeling within Flecha Caida subdivisions must be approved. Our consultant will
usually discuss the plans with you, and then with the Board at the next board
meeting should the need for further review arise. Once approved, most
projects require two inspections during construction and one upon completion.
In addition to meeting
requirements of your CR&Rs, the Pima County zoning rules for CR-1 single
residence zone as well as Pima County building codes (Title 15 of the Pima County Code)
may also apply. When there is a conflict among the applicable rules, codes,
and restrictions, the most stringent regulation applies.
Plan Submittal: All plans for construction of
private roads and driveways and all building plans for any building, fence,
corral, wall, or structure to be erected upon any lot, including its proposed
location, and any remodeling, reconstruction, alteration or addition to any
building, road, driveway or other structure on any lot requires the approval
in writing of the Board. Before beginning any work; submit one full set
of Pima County approved building plans, in digital pdf format, including a
