Development Standards

Designed in accordance with the highest standards of conservation development, the development guidelines for New Moon Overlook intend to minimize the impact of new construction on the region’s scenic, cultural, and habitat values.

A carefully defined set of covenants and restrictions encourage home construction that exemplifies the energy-efficiency and water-conservation values of green development.

The New Moon Overlook Community Development Standards [pdf; 1.4MB] set forth these building and landscaping criteria.


The New Moon Overlook Community Operating Agreement describes homeowners' rights and responsibilities, including those related to community governance, trail use, equestrian activities, and the maintenance and stewardship of common areas.
