New Home Construction

Welcome to Whitewater Springs!  Building a new home is an exciting time and we want to help assure your project goes as smoothly as possible so that you can move in and start enjoying the beautiful community we call home. 

To speed you along the path, the Property Owners Association has developed procedures for property owners to submit your plans and receive approval from our Architectural Control Committee.  These procedures have been designed to ensure that every request is handled consistently and fairly. Please begin by reading the materials below so that you can gain a better understanding of the community requirements as well as the steps to get your project approved. 

Required Reading

Owning property in Whitewater Springs requires each property owner to adhere to and follow the Conditions Covenants & Restrictions (CC&Rs). The Conditions Covenants & Restrictions (CC&Rs) exist to protect the beauty of the subdivision as well as the value of all owners’ properties. Link here to the CC&Rs.

General Building Requirements

Firewise Construction Checklist – Read this valuable resource for building a Firewise home.

Firewise Landscaping Checklist – Read this valuable resource for planning for a Firewise landscape. 

Land Clearing – Before you clear your land you need to determine if your lot is located in a protected wildlife area. Lots in protected areas are limited to the times of year that they can conduct land clearing. Additionally, you will need to review the requirements on land clearing, mulching, or removing cleared tree debris.

Security and Access for Contractors Since Whitewater Springs is a gated community, all contractors and builders must contact Whitewater Springs Security for obtaining access through the entrance gates. 

Submitting Plans for New Home Construction

For your convenience, Whitewater Springs has an online process for submitting all required forms and fees.  All of the documents below can be submitted online via a secure server.  If you cannot complete these forms online, you may print and complete the forms below then submit via email to ACC@WWSPOA.COM.  All submitted materials are considered personal and confidential.  Read our Confidentiality Policy HERE

Remember, absolutely no work is to begin, including excavations, until the ACC has approved all plans and received payment of the Road Impact Fee.

Required Forms

REMEMBER, when all your application materials have been submitted, the ACC requires 30 days to review and approve/disapprove plans. Please allow plenty of time before planning the start of construction.
