Concept Plans of Future Centex Homes Reviewed by ARC
The Victor Gardens Community Association's Architectural Review Committee (ARC) met last Wednesday with architect Tim Whitten, representatives from Centex Homes and Neighborhood Development Partners. The group met for a review of submitted concept plans for future homes proposed to be built on NDP's lots in VG's Single Family Village. Centex submitted a total of 10 variations of 4 named plans, including elevations, color plans, and landscape plans. Mr. Whitten and Centex modified existing Centex plans to make them more suitable for the Single Family Village. The ARC commented and made suggestions on the plans, including importance of 4-sided architecture and landscaping, avoiding monotonous elevations, using cement fiberboard, etc. Centex was receptive to the comments and will submit revised plans for the next stage of ARC review. They plan to build one model home to begin with near the corner of Grantaire Ln. and Val Jean Blvd.
