location, design and history of Rehberg Ranch
presents a unique opportunity to establish
a community where neighborhoods foster lasting
friendships. From an architectural standpoint,
the guidelines are intended to promote design
styles that respect and protect the natural
environment and minimize the disturbance of
the existing terrain and vegetation, blend
seamlessly into the natural setting, and convey
and enhance the feeling of the high prairies
A Design Review Process
has been established to implement these guidelines
and to assist owners with the design review
process. The design review is divided into
five phases, covering the preliminary design
stage through completion. It is strongly recommended
an owner retain professional architectural
or design assistance in planning and designing
design plans must be approved prior to construction.
||These Design Guidelines
are applicable to all construction commenced
within Rehberg Ranch.
|The unique topography
and general terrain of Rehberg Ranch requires
particular attention to site planning. Buildings
should be located so as to maximize the attributes
of a site while minimizing the disturbance
of the site's natural features. To preserve
the natural terrain for the enjoyment of all
residents, the concept of a maximum allowable
building area referred to as the "Building
Envelope" has been adopted.
Rehberg Ranch should capture the feeling of
the native prairie environment with improvements
becoming an extension of the region by use
of timbers, stone and native materials in
construction and landscaping. The use of natural
materials and design styles reflecting the
heritage of this region is encouraged. Vinyl
products are not allowed.
Single-family residences must contain a minimum
of 1,200-1,600 sq. ft. of enclosed habitable
space, depending on area, with homes sized
appropriately for the lot. Maximum allowable
height for a residence is 35 feet.

lot of off-site features and views from off-site,
through the lot to significant features within
or outside the development. The objective
is to create as many opportunities for views
Native landscape of the Rehberg Ranch includes
coulees, sandstone outcroppings, native grasses,
bull pines, and yucca. The Design Guidelines
contain construction regulations to minimize
impacts on the landscape and existing residences.
The goal of a landscape design for a site
should integrate the buildings and building
envelope in the natural scale, form, massing,
color and texture of the existing terrain.
Only trees and shrubs indigenous to the area
may be used in landscaping.
