Before you begin any changes or improvements to the exterior of your home or other structures on your lot (sheds, fences, etc.) you must obtain approval from the Cypress Landing Architectural Committee. All projects are to be documented by submitting an Architectural Change Request Form and all projects must be approved before the work can begin. While the Covenants stipulate that approval of requests may take up to 30 days, we are usually able to accommodate homeowners much more quickly, depending on the scope of the project.
*** Please submit all Architectural Change Forms to firstname.lastname@example.org for review***
Cypress Landing has a committee that must approve exterior changes on your property. The Architectural Committee is a group of volunteers appointed by the Board of Directors for this purpose. The committee is responsible for maintaining standards of quality and harmony of external design in the community. Upholding these standards is critical to keeping Cypress Landing an attractive, desirable place to live, which supports property resale values for the entire community. The approval requirements and authority of the Architectural Committee are based on the Cypress Landing Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, generally referred to as "the Covenants".
The second function of the Architectural Committee is to ensure that all properties in the neighborhood are maintained appropriately. If a home or lot is visibly in need of repair or maintenance, the committee can take steps to have the homeowner address the problems. If the homeowner fails to do so, Article V section 2 (page 14) of the Covenants authorizes the Board of Directors to have the work done and hold the homeowner responsible for the cost.
Guidelines for Vegetation Management Plan
All new requests must follow the Anne Arundel County guidelines, as well as submitting requests to the HOA. Both the HOA and Anne Arundel County forms can be found on our forms page for download.

Place trash and refuse out after 6PM the night before. Covenants also state that all pet excrement is to be removed from property. Please pick up your pet deposits immediately, especially in Crosswater Court. Covenants state that a $25 fine will be issued for each offense. Keep garage door closed for security. Protect your property value by reporting any offense or violation. As always, please be on the lookout for any suspicious activity, and don't hesitate to call the police if you have any concerns.
