Design Review

Please note, the landscape application process may take up to 60 days from the time that an application is initially submitted to the time that approval is received. This time can be reduced by providing plans that meet requirements on the initial submission. Please make use of the Initial Rear Yard Landscape Checklist below to confirm that all requirements for plantings or additional information have been included with your plan. Complete landscape design review forms submitted by the first and third Wednesdays of the month will be submitted for review by the Modifications Committee on the first and third Friday of the month. 

The Brighton Crossing Metropolitan District Board of Directors has approved the assessment of a $150 Design Review fee with all initial improvements or substantial modifications, to cover the costs of processing Design Review applications. To determine if your application requires a fee, please see page 4 of the Design Review Request Form. If you have questions regarding the review fee please use the Contact Us link at the top of the page to send an email to the district management team. Review fee payments should be mailed to, and checks made out to Brighton Crossings Operations Board or BCOB, at 550 W Eisenhower Blvd. Loveland, CO 80537. Pursuant to the Master Declaration, all Owners are required to install rear yard landscaping within 9 months of closing.  All plans must be approved prior to construction and/or installation. Violation of the landscape requirements may result in fines being assessed to owners and/or a requirement to alter installed landscaping.

Fence Staining Requirements 

Pursuant to the Residential Improvement Guidelines and Site Restrictions all fences within Brighton Crossings must be treated with one of the two approved Preservative Treatments listed below. In lieu of a stain that can be difficult to match across multiple phases and builders, and that must be applied regularly, fences should be sealed with an approved Preservative Treatment. This clear treatment contains no dye or coloring; it causes the lignin in the wood to form a natural, rustic-weathered patina that enhances the life of the wood and does not need to be reapplied. You can find out more details about District fencing guidelines and Owner responsibilities in the Residential Improvement Guidelines and Site Restriction and Homeowner Landscape Guidelines. LifeTime Wood Treatment, » Manufacturer: Valhalla Wood Preservatives ltd, ECO Wood Treatment » Manufacturer: int. eco Wood Treatment, Where can I purchase these products? ECO Treatment can be purchased through Home Depot’s website and delivered to the store.
