The Spanish Peaks design review process is set up to be a cooperative one between Owners, their design and construction team, and the Architectural Review Committee (ARC). The ARC helps Owners to realize their own objectives while implementing the overall vision that distinguishes Spanish Peaks as one of Montana’s great places year-after-year.

The design review process is organized in three steps, as described below, followed by three aesthetic reviews during construction, as outlined in Chapter 11 of the Design Guidelines.


ARC review and approval is to be obtained for all project types listed below:

  • New Construction
  • Alterations, additions, demolition or rehabilitation of an existing structure
  • Major site and/or landscape Improvements


The Spanish Peaks design review process, unless otherwise noted takes place in three steps, followed by three aesthetic reviews during construction:

  1. Concept Plan Review
  2. Final Plan Design Review (see Section 10.7)
  3. Working Drawings, Construction Management Plan, Staking and Site Meeting Review 

Any Improvement is required to be preceded by the submission of plans, specifications and an application fee. The Owner is to retain competent assistance from an approved Architect, Landscape Architect, structural Engineer, Civil Engineer, Contractor and any other consultants as necessary. 

Having secured final design approval from the ARC, the Owner is to also meet all submittal and approval requirements of applicable Zoning Regulations and any local, State and Federal requirements. The Owner is to commence construction within one year of final design approval from the ARC.
