Water Conservation and Restrictions

Hillsborough County complies with water restrictions set by the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The restrictions are for a variety of outdoor water uses, including lawn irrigation, pressure washing, car washing, decorative fountains, and others. These restrictions are in effect year-round.

Water Conservation Tips

Solid Waste Management

Hillsborough County offers automated collection of garbage and recyclables. Automated collection is a system where garbage and recycling containers are emptied using a mechanical arm on the collection vehicle, instead of workers lifting cans and bins by hand. It's a better method of collection that is cleaner and neater for neighborhoods, greener for the environment, and safer for the service providers. For more information, please see Hillsborough County’s Solid Waste Management website.

Design Review Committee (DRC) Guidelines

Design Guidelines have been prepared to assist architects, builders, engineers, and owners in design and construction of dwelling units and construction of additions or alterations in The Villages at Cypress Creek. The purpose of these Guidelines and the DRC is as follows:

A. To promote and attain the highest quality of development in design, materials and construction; and,

B. To insure compatibility and harmony with the land, the Golf Course, adjacent properties, and with the purpose and intent of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions for The Villages at Cypress Creek.

These Design Guidelines shall form the basis and criteria for evaluation of plans and specifications submitted for review and approval to the DRC. These Guidelines are not established to prevent imaginative or creative design, but to ensure that residences constructed by an Owner or Builder/Contractor will not be damaged or devalued by the incompatible design of a neighbor. The Design Review Committee shall endeavor to ensure compatibility and harmony of exterior colors, materials and general design quality, and to promote sensitivity of proposed improvements to natural features of the land, the Golf Course and to neighboring structures and improvements. The Guidelines are intended to serve for the life of the project and accordingly may be amended by the Design Review Committee from time to time.

The goal of these Guidelines is to ensure development of a consistently high quality, thereby protecting and enhancing the investment and property values of all owners and residents within The Villages at Cypress Creek.

These Design Guidelines do not supersede but rather supplement the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (Declaration) and any other regulations of Hillsborough County which may be in effect. Where the Design Guidelines and Declaration are more stringent than Hillsborough County Regulations, the most stringent regulations shall apply.
