NEW or ALTERATION Building Permit Overview
 
What authority allows LVPOA to control issuance of building permits?

Each plotted lot within all Lake Victoria subdivisions has an abstract associated with it. Within the abstract is an entry placed and recorded with the Register of Deeds office located in Clinton County, Michigan. Item 3f of each Declaration of Restrictions states the following:

3(F) The LVPOA Building Control Committee shall consider and recommend approval or disapproval of plans for all structures erected, placed or altered in this subdivision. The Committee may reject any plan because of too great a similarity to nearby existing structures. The Building Control Committee shall take into account: harmony of exterior design of the proposed structure with existing structures on the lot and in the subdivision; location of the proposed building with respect to topography and finished ground elevation; whether applicant has obtained any necessary approval from county authorities; compliance with property restrictions; and existence/sufficiency of any necessary construction bond.

What role does Clinton County Building Department have in the LVPOA permit process?

Visit the Governing Documents page to view additional restrictions concerning building at Lake Victoria.

Is there a building permit fee?

There are no fees associated with the permit process.


How long will approval take?

For any building requests to be considered, Building Committee needs to receive documentation of the request 7 days prior to the next monthly board meeting in order for the committee to add to the next meeting agenda. If variances are being requested, board approval may be necessary and depending on when the requested information has been filed relative to the board meeting(s) (which are held normally the third Tuesday of the month), a delay of up to 30-60 days can be expected.


How is a variance requested?

     a. You must request and submit written approval of all adjoining property owners for property setback variances. For other variance types, written approval of all property owners within 500'.
     b. Complete description of the variance desired on the LVPOA Building Permit application. (attach additional pages as necessary).

NOTE: ADJOINING PROPERTY OWNER APPROVAL DOES NOT GUARANTEE VARIANCE APPROVAL!!!


Who reviews and who approves this application?


The Building Control Committee should normally consist of three members. The Building Control Committee chairman oversees the committee. The chairman seeks to have a minimum of two signatures on the permit. If the committee is not in agreement on any submitted permit, then the chairman shall submit the permit to the LVPOA Board of Directors at their next regularly scheduled board meeting held on the third Tuesday of each month excluding July and December, who will then make a determination of approval or denial.
