Architectural Standards

University Park is a well-established residential gated community that maintains the highest level of architectural standards. All changes to the exterior or landscaping of a home in University Park must be approved by the Architecture and Landscape Committee.

Consistent Design & Regulations

The Architecture & Landscape Committee meets once a week to review applications for changes to the exterior appearance of homes and their landscaping in University Park.  Approvals are based on the published guidelines and regulations.
