Sound architectural standards preserve the value of each owner’s investment. It is not just what happens on your lot, but on the lots next door and around the project. The minimum lot size of 10 acres, along with well-placed development envelopes, provides separation from neighboring homes and allows for unobstructed views and open space. There is no noise or light pollution, and the Mesa offers some of the darkest, starriest skies in Utah.
Height – 16 feet, except 14 feet for that portion of home fronting a rim, one story (above grade).
Stone – native stone to cover 25% exterior, or 50% without windows and doors, whichever is LESS.
Pitched or flat roofs – maximum pitch 3.5 x 12, with large overhangs. Multiple shed roof planes favored (over single large roof plane) for shadowing and offsets.
Colors – blend in to surroundings, subdued, darker organic tones, non reflective, no light trim (candy stripping).
Materials walls – stone, stucco, oiled natural wood, rusted metal.
Materials roof – membrane for flat roofs; asphalt shingles or rusted or patina (non reflective) metal for pitched roofs. Roofing material colors to blend in.
Misc trim – gutters, window clad, etc, aluminum or other metal in darker tones that blend with wall materials.
Lighting – Dark Skies area - avoid light pollution, hooded on the exterior of structure, low level landscape lighting, no pole or other mounted yard lighting, lights off when retired for the night.
Development Envelope contains all structures. (Your view can never be blocked.) Transition Zones for patios, ground level decks, and other ground level improvements, also driveways and drain-fields. No improvements in Conservation Easement areas excepting some native planting, primarily for privacy, separation and view-shed protection for each Owner.
