Is my fence approved? My contractor was going to turn in the paperwork for me but I never heard from anyone to tell me if my fence is okay or not.
If you or your contractor have submitted an application, you will receive written approval back in the mail immediately after it is reviewed and approved. The Woodlands Residential Standards are designed to make compliance easy. Some types of improvements are pre-approved under the Standards, some require only a speedy "One-Step" review, and some more complicated projects require the full review of the Residential Design Review Committee for your village. If a written application is required, a written response should generally come your way within a week or 10 days of the application having been submitted. If you haven't heard within that time, give us a call at 281-210-3973 so that we can confirm that the application has been properly received.
