Submittal Dates, Meetings & Turnaround Time

Submittal Dates

Please call in advance of the submittal date to reserve an appointment. Submittals must be complete and made in full by the submittal date in order to be reviewed at the meeting that corresponds to that date. May 8th* is the latest suggested Preliminary Design Submittal date and July 10th** is the latest suggested Final Design Submittal date for starting construction and having foundation and earthwork completed by the Monday, October 15, 2019 grading and soil stabilization deadline. Due to climatic and environmental restrictions, soil at Lahontan may only be moved (excavation, trenching and earthwork) between May 1st (if the ground is dry) and October 15th of each year. Depending on the nature of the submittal, submittals by these dates may not allow enough time to prepare for the subsequent grading dates that follow. Although the Commission will review design submittals at these times, it may be more prudent to submit earlier.

Due to the number of variables surrounding individual site conditions and the hired professionals who are responsible for managing the individual project, the Lahontan Covenants Commission cannot make guarantees of construction start dates. For the best opportunity to begin construction, submittals for projects with an intended start in 2019 should follow the guidelines listed above.

Approximate Turnaround 

The Design Review Administrator for the Lahontan Covenants Commission will make every reasonable effort to respond to each project within 10-days or sooner of the meeting.

Contractor and Architect Orientations

Orientations are required for Architects and General Contractors who are new to Lahontan prior to starting design and construction.  Please call Design Review at 530-550-2488 to make an appointment for an orientation meeting.  Please note that Thursday, September 2nd , is the last recommended date for a Pre-Construction Orientation meeting for a 2019 building start.  In order to avoid inconveniences and risks due to a last-minute rush, it is strongly suggested that new Contractors schedule the required Pre-Construction Orientation prior to this date.
