Westfield Woods Community Association Construction Approval Process

Westfield Woods Community Association Construction Approval Process
The information attached below will help guide you through the process of applying for and receiving approval to construct a
fence, pool or anything else requiring Covenants and Restrictions approval with Westfield Woods Association. We generally
only approve fences four feet high. Some exceptions may be granted. You can review the Covenants and Restrictions on this web site.

  • All excavated material from this project that is not used on your property must be removed from said property and
    must not be deposited on any common property of Westfield Woods Subdivision.

  •  The entire construction area, except the fence construction area, must be protected with an erosion and construction
    barrier control fence.

  • If at any time during construction or after completion of the project, you want to make any modifications to the
    approved project, you must submit those changes to the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) for approval.

The City of Dardenne Prairie also requires approval for all construction projects including pools and fences. Some of the
items that the City of Dardenne Prairie requires have been included below, but you must check with the city for the most
updated information at http://www.dardenneprairie.org/ or you may contact them at (636) 561-1718.  The City requires HOA approval before they will grant approval and a permit so be sure to submit your request to the Architectural Control Committee first.
