The addition of the following Benjamin Moore paint colors:
Dinner Party AF-300 (red)

Existing McCormick’s exterior latex semi-gloss Black, (240A), Light Green (4-0905D) and Dark Green (224A) can continued to be used.

No two adjacent houses may have the same colors;

  • Standing-seam metal roofs on end units must be painted the same color as the front doors and metal railing;
  • The railings, roofs and doors must be painted at the same time with the same approved color
  • Any repainting must be done using the existing approved or new approved paint colors.
