Things to Know

Home Improvements

As a new homeowner, you may already have some ideas on how you would like to improve your property. Please keep in mind that the Canyon Lake Property Owners Association has a Planning & Compliance Department to help you along this journey. This department’s function is to evaluate the plans for all exterior landscaping, repairs, and remodeling (such as painting, decks, fences, trees and bushes, replacement roofs, etc.) to ensure compliance with our community’s covenants, restrictions, and guidelines. The purpose of this review is to protect our community’s aesthetics and maintain the value of our homes. Modifications to the exterior of your home and property must be submitted to the Planning & Compliance Department for approval before any work begins. If work starts without prior permission, you may be required to alter or remove the changes.

Visit our online Planning & Compliance center or call them at 951-244-6841 x320 for more information.
