First off, what’s the PLPOA? The PLPOA is the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association. They are the largest of HOA’s in Pagosa Springs as well. They control 10 subdivisions in Pagosa Springs. If you decide to build within the PLPOA they have their own design review board your home must be approved through prior to getting a building permit. The process takes about 1 month. The review goes through the ECC, which stands for the Environmental Control Committee. You must be submitted 2 week prior to their meetings and they meet twice a month, so plan on the process taking about a month. There is also a fee of just under $1,000.00 to obtain that permit prior to building.
