Everything you need to know about the guidelines adopted by the Santo Tomas community which will help you in planning for any structural, landscape or paint changes to your home and property. 
If you plan to paint the exterior of your house, you must apply for Architectural Approval prior to painting your home.  The form can be found here:  Architectural Request form.  When completed it should be submitted via email or mailed to the property management company.   Click here for email and mailing address details.  
The application will be automatically approved if:
1 - You are repainting the house using the existing color scheme and colors.
2 - You are painting the house one of the approved color schemes, as long at the scheme is not identical to an immediate neighbor.  The approved color schemes can be found here:  Santo Tomas Color Schemes 
If either of these two conditions are not met, you will need to request an exception on the Architectural Review form, and supply samples of each of the colors desired (house, trim, garage, shutters) if the color is not in one of the approved color schemes.   The sample for each color must be at least 8 X 8 inches.  Requests for an identical color scheme as an immediate neighbor will not be approved.
The fee for the submission is $25 which should be submitted by check or which can automatically be added to your monthly payment if you are on autopay with the management company.
