Deerwood, one of the first planned residential communities in Jacksonville, was established in 1963 as a deed restricted community to create a residential environment of the highest quality. The Deerwood Improvement Association (DIA) is committed to promoting a quality lifestyle and enhancing property values. To achieve this, a comprehensive set of Covenants and Restrictions, Articles and Bylaws, as well as Architectural Review Committee (ARC) guidelines govern the community and all property owners.
Each homeowner is responsible for adhering to the rules and requirements set forth in the Covenants and Restrictions for their particular unit. One should read the Covenants and Restrictions carefully before beginning any project. Generally, any change to the landscaping, topography and exterior of an home requires the approval of Deerwood Improvement Association, which has succeeded to the "Developer Rights" often referred to in the Covenants and Restrictions.
