    The community of Rancho Santa Fe is attractive and desirable in large part due to the Protective Covenant, an agreement among property owners to preserve the character of the community and uphold the quality of future architecture. The Covenant Design Review Committee (CDRC) reviews development and building applications to ensure that new projects maintain the “high artistic result” described in the original 1928 Covenant.


    The Protective Covenant may be downloaded by clicking the link at left. Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation are also available for downloading, printing and viewing, as well as guidelines, applications and other forms.
