The property owner may submit another partial or full Application Package for approval. Upon approval of a project, the ACB will from time to time, as necessary, inspect the project for conformance with the plans, specifications, colors, and textures previously approved by the ACB. The ACB will make monthly reports on the status of all building projects within Clearview Estates.

CURRENT HOME MODIFICATIONS

If you are planning a project which will modify the exterior appearance of your property, you must first determine how the project will be classified, General Modifications or Major Modifications. General Modification Projects are relatively simple such as re-painting or re-roofing your home. Major Modification projects will probably require a Citrus County building permit and a building contractor. The state of Florida and Citrus County increased wind load requirements in 2012 and now require you to obtain a building permit for projects which were previously classified as General Modification.

Below is a list of most frequently requested projects for General Modifications and Major Modifications. Find your project type from among the projects listed below. Select your type under General Modifications or Major Modifications. Then read the Modificaton Instructions for the procedures, complete the required Form/s, and submit them with color samples, pictures, and drawings as required by the Instructions. If you can not find the description of your project and are not sure which classification, General Modifications or Major Modifications, contact the ACB for assistance.

If you need a color wheel with the approved Clearview Estates colors, please contact Steve Lampasona at (813) 781-0689 .‚Äč
