CoSA Ordinances and Community Covenants mandate that many types of alterations to properties within Whispering Oaks secure approvals from both the City and WOHA before work begins. Renovations to both homes and yards may require pre-approvals.
Start the process with the CoSA Development Services Dept at 1901 South Alamo St. Its staff is available for no-cost, drop-in consultation of your concept. Building Code, Zoning and Neighborhood Conservaton District requirements will be verified before a permit is issued. Most permits are inexpensive and some can be secured online.
Once CoSA has reviewed your potential project, then submit plans to WOHA for its review. Our volunteers will verify compliance with Community Covenants. Please note, CoSA have no jurisdiction over the Covenants and will not prompt you to contact WOHA for its approval.
Please note, failing to obtain permits and approvals from all legal stakeholders can lead to costly penalties, property leins, legal expense, and even removal of unauthorized work.
WOHA volunteers typically approve plans within 10 business days, although some large or complex projects may require additional review by the Board. Click to request WOHA review after you've consulted CoSA.
