SOLUNA GUIDELINES FOR COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION AND RULES AND

1.0 PRE-CONSTRUCTION RULES PURPOSE AND INTENT

To preserve the general character and design intent of SOLUNA, a Commercial Structure

materials and building color palette as the Subdivision clubhouse will greatly help bring
aesthetic harmony to the development. Even as the design of the Commercial Structure
maintains a distinctive façade, the Commercial Structure should maintain a likeness and
similarity with the Housing Structures and other Commercial Structures in the Subdivision.
Colors used for all exterior features, attachments, improvement or expansion of the
Commercial Structure (including roofing, exterior walls, doors, window jambs), shall be in
harmony with the colors of the other Structures in the Subdivision. Roofing components of
any improvement or expansion on the Commercial Structure shall maintain the same pitch
of roof as that of the design of the Commercial Structure as indicated in the original plans for
the Commercial Structure initially approved by the Declarant and the Association. All
improvements and expansions must be made of strong materials.

conference so that they are properly informed and guided from the very start of
