Design Review Requests

2019 XX Design Review Requests are required for all permanent exterior modifications to your home.  The request must follow the Design Guidelines, Rules and Regulations for the LCMA.

Many homes in Lowry belong to two HOA’s, the LCMA and a sub-association. The easiest way to determine if you are part of a sub-association is if you pay dues to someone other than the LCMA. Prior to submitting a Design Review Request you must have approval from your sub-association.

  1. Design review requests cannot be reviewed by LCMA’s Buildings and Grouds Committee (BAG) until all applicable documentation is included: pictures, sketches, paint samples, etc.
  2. Requests are reviewed by BAG via email, further documentation may be required to *complete* your request and conform to the Design Guidelines, Rules and Regulations.
  3. *Completed* Design Review Requests typically receive a decision within 2 weeks, but this process may take up to 30 days.

The Lowry Air Force Based closed in 1994 after graduating more than 1.1 million Armed Forces.  The base has since been redeveloped into the lovely, master-planned community we call home today.  Several of the original Lowry Air Force Base structures, including some of the aircraft hangars, were creatively repurposed and are still in use, contributing to the rich sense of history we enjoy here in Lowry today.

If you would like to read more about Lowry’s history, we highly recommend this page’s source material.  You may also want to peruse the Historic Buildings Photo Album for a look at Lowry’s past and the Historic Buildings Repurposed to see the modern rendition. To view a map of all the historic buildings and to learn more about each of them please visit our Neighborhood Directory by clicking here.

Lowry has more then eighteen pieces of public art, created by artists from across Colorado contributing to the beauty, the history and the culture of Lowry.  The Lowry Foundation are the curators of all of the public art in Lowry.  Learn more about Lowry’s public art and see photos on the Public Art page.
