Approval of construction and landscape
The rules of our community require that any change or improvement to the exterior of a dwelling or lot be approved beforehand by the Architectural Committee. The only actions that do not require approval are repainting in accordance with the original color scheme, or rebuilding or replacing in accordance with plans and specifications previously approved by the Board. However, it is recommended that all lot owners check with the Architectural Committee before proceeding with a project to see if there is any uncertainty as to whether or not Board or Architectural Committee approval is required.
The procedure for submitting an application to the Architectural Committee is as follows:
- Download and complete an Approval of Construction and Landscape Form.
- Send a complete set of plans in PDF format to email@example.com. It is highly recommended that all plans and drawings be prepared by a professional, and that as much detail be included as possible. Accurate and comprehensible presentations are essential in order to make an assessment during design review.
- Fees for Architectural Committee applications are as follows, made payable to Alvarado Community Association, Inc.:
New home construction $1,000

Letter of agency
A Letter of Agency allows the San Diego Police Department to act as the agent for the owner of private property for purposes of enforcing laws against any person(s) found on the property without the owner’s consent or without lawful purpose. This is an extremely useful tool and is strongly recommended for vacant properties, vacant lots, businesses or any properties upon which public nuisance activity and/or crime problems, including transient activity, drug activity, prostitution, graffiti or general trespass are occurring. This form must be renewed every SIX months to be effective per Penal Code section 602. Please submit the completed Letter of Agency form via email or to your neighborhood police station. Our Police Division is Eastern on Aero Drive.
