Maintenance Projects are used by property owners and their contractors to obtain Architectural Standards Committee (ASC) approval prior to making very minor changes in the exterior appearance of a residence or property.

Maintenance Projects (1-year permit):

  • Paint/stain changes
  • Front door/Garage door paint/stain changes
  • Roof/gutter changes, including enclosing eaves for fire safety
  • Exterior lights updates
  • Door changes: garage, front/back/side
  • Window changes
  • Animal Resistant Garbage Can Enclosures (not custom built) – minimum requirements
  • Hot tubs (on/under existing structure)
  • A/C or Generator (on/under existing structure)
  • Siding & Wainscot
  • Skylights
  • Solar Panels

These maintenance projects do not involve increasing the square footage of a residence or increasing coverage that would then require an updated site or major design changes that would then require updated elevation plans. Most of the maintenance projects may be processed and approved by CSO staff however depending on the scope of the project or materials proposed may require the approval of one member of the Architectural Standards Committee (ASC) the following Wednesday.

Some minor maintenance projects may be completed without a building permit from the Town of Truckee while others such window change outs, a new roof, or hot tub installation may require a Town of Truckee building permit. Contact the Town of Truckee Building Department (530) 582-7820 for further information regarding building permit requirements.

In most cases before photos along with a cut-sheet of the proposed material/fixture to be installed are required with the submittal of the project application. Upon review and approval, a 12-month permit will be issued.

For completion of the maintenance project, completion photos (all aspects/sides for paint and roof) are required to be submitted via to illustrate the work has been completed. ​
