All property in Wilde Lake is legally bound by the Wilde Lake Village Covenants (requires Adobe Reader). The Covenants require property owners to obtain approval from the Wilde Lake Architectural Committee (AC) for common alterations and updates to the exterior of their homes.
This practice has helped to keep the Village of Wilde Lake a desirable, attractive place to live for over 50 years. It requires collaboration in good faith between property owners, residents, neighborhood volunteers including Resident Architectural Committee (RAC) and Village Board members, and other neighbors to work well.
The process is built to recognize that although a cohesive aesthetic is a boon for our community, design standards and preferences may change over time. To that end, the Wilde Lake Architectural Guidelines and Maintenance Standards (requires Adobe Reader) are also reviewed and updated from time to time, most recently in September 2022.
The entire process takes about two weeks from start to finish for most applications. For more information, visit our Covenants FAQ page.
