Building & Planning Department COVID-19 Adaptations
The Association and its Building & Planning Department are providing members essential services during restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Association office has now re-opened, but Building & Planning staff are splitting time between working at the office and at home. Please be aware that projects and their timelines are subject to change and are likely to be affected by the pandemic restrictions and work modifications.
Building & Planning
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 Art Jury reviews development and building applications to ensure that new projects maintain the "high artistic result" described in the Rancho Santa Fe Protective Covenant.
