The Lowry Community Master Association (LCMA) is the association of property owners in Lowry.

The LCMA maintains the Lowry website, Instagram, and Facebook page, and publishes a bi-weekly e-newsletter which you can sign up for here.
The LCMA is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors, all volunteers and Lowry property owners, who serve three-year terms. The LCMA Board meets twice quarterly with an annual meeting in December of each year. LCMA meetings are open to Lowry residents, businesses and homeowners, and are open to public comment. LCMA Board of Directors meetings are on the Lowry calendar.
Design Review Requests
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- *Completed* Design Review Requests typically receive a decision within 2 weeks, but this process may take up to 30 days.
If you have any questions about the Design Guidelines or the Design Review Request Form OR if you have submitted your request and not heard back from us within five business days, please contact Jennifer Bublitz, Community Manager, at 970-663-9685.

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.
