Rebuilding Fountaingrove

The choice to rebuild one's home is a very personal one. The Fountaingrove Board and Homeowners Association is here to help you find the information you need to make that decision. Our community will recover from this disaster, but it will take time, effort, patience and determination from all of us to make it happen. Over time we will become a more resilient and stronger community.

Rebuilding our homes and communities is a multi-layered process with many tasks. First was cleanup, then planning and permitting. Preparing your architectural, structural, and soils engineering plans for review is a key real step toward construction. To accomplish this, you'll want to put together your building team: an architect, a contractor and other experts to guide and inform your decision making. Once you have plans ready, they should be presented to the FRMA Architectural Control Committee (ACC) for review and approval, since the city will only accept plans for permit review that bear the ACC approval stamp. When the city issues the necessary permits, construction can begin.
