Baca Grande POA

Land Use Department

The Land Use Department provides administration of all land use issues within and adjacent to the Baca Grande Property Owners Association sub-division.  

Permits are required for all buildings or structures, parking areas, fences, walls, hedges, plantings, patios, driveways/parking pads, decks, enclosures, change in exterior color or shape, excavation, and all other site work including without limitation grading, road construction, utility improvements, removal of trees, and any new exterior constructions or exterior improvement constructed or completed on a lot.

To be in compliance, the Baca Grande POA requires permits or written approvals issued by the Environmental and Architectural Committee (EAC) for many projects homeowners do on their properties. If you are unsure if you need a permit or written approval for a project you are doing on your property, we encourage you to call our office. We will help you determine if an application is required.

Information on Violations

The complaint form should be used when an individual is filing a formal complaint about a person, property or situation that they feel is a nuisance to them. Complaints are not taken lightly and need to be reasonable. A staff member will inspect the property or the situation when possible to try to witness the nature of the complaint; however, there are times when this just isn’t possible. Property owners anonymity will be protected to the best of our ability.
