MUIRFIELD DESIGN REVIEW APPLICATIONS AND GUIDELINES

All properties in Muirfield Village are bound by the design standards set forth in the Declaration (Warranty Deed). Per the Declaration, all exterior property additions, changes, removals, or any type of exterior construction to any part of any Muirfield property must be approved in writing by the Design Control Committee before any work begins.

Caution: If a contractor or company states their products, materials or services have been "approved by Muirfield", that is not true. Nothing is pre-approved even if it was used on another property. Everything must be reviewed and approved on an individual basis.

Download the appropriate application and complete it, then mail it, bring it to the Association office, or email it to [email protected]. For assistance on submitting a plan, read Submitting a Design Request. For information on the design process in general, read the Design Review Policy. View the calendar for a list of meeting dates and deadlines.

Applications can be filled in on your computer by using Adobe Reader X or later. In order to save data in the form, it is critical to fill out the form using Adobe, not your browser. Directions are here. Mac users, please be certain to read this.
