Answer: Please bring your completed New Resident Form. (Blank New Resident forms are also available at the office.) If you have purchased a home, you do not need to bring closing documents. However, if you are leasing, bring a copy of your lease that clearly shows the residents' names, the property address, and the terms of the lease (the expiration date). We will make a copy of the page(s) that show this information. Feel free to black out rental amount information.

FAQ: Do all exterior property changes, additions, or improvements need to be approved by the Association?

Answer: Yes. All exterior changes, removals, or additions to the property must be approved in writing by the Design Control Committee before any work begins. Examples include, but are not limited to, painting; installing new window(s), door(s), a roof, garage doors, or deck; the removal or addition of any permanent landscaping elements or gardens; the addition of a radon unit, play equipment, a basketball hoop, fence or pool; creating building additions; or any other exterior remodeling.

Projects that would be exempt from this would include repainting the home and trim the exact same color, the planting of annual flowers, replacing rotten boards on houses, decks, or trellises with the exact same material and same color, removal of trees less than 6" caliper, or replacement of a driveway with the exact same shape, size, and material as the current driveway.

The Design Review page contains all of the applications necessary to submit for property changes. These include directions, guidelines, and a list of what needs to be submitted to the Muirfield Association.

FAQ: Someone has advertised that their company, products or services are "Approved by Muirfield". Do I still need approval?

Answer: Yes. There is no such thing as a pre-approved company, product or service. Although many companies have worked with homeowners and the Association to have their products or services approved for one property, that does not mean the product or service is automatically approved for all properties. Each property change is reviewed on a case by case basis and what might be approved in one location in Muirfield may not be approved in another area. Please be wary of anyone making such claims.

FAQ: I have dead or dying trees. Do I need to have approval to remove them?

Answer: It depends on the diameter of the tree. Residents must get approval to remove any tree over 6 inches in diameter. If the tree trunk is under 6 inches in diameter, approval is not needed. Additionally, the trimming of trees or removal of dead wood does not require approval.

Naturally, the Design Control Committee will approve the removal of any dying or dead tree. The purpose of submitting a plan is to indicate what the tree will be replaced with.

If a tree has been damaged during a storm and poses an immediate danger, it may be removed on an emergency basis. In this case, residents must submit a plan to the Design Control Committee after the fact and explain the circumstances. On the plan, indicate what type of tree will planted as a replacement.

Download the Tree Removal and Replacement application and guidelines.

FAQ: Where are the Design Review applications located?

Answer: All Design Review applications and guidelines are located on the Design Review page and are listed in alphabetic order. These forms include directions, regulations, and a checklist of what needs to be submitted to the Muirfield Association.

Please mail or bring completed applications (along with any materials the application requests) to the Association office.

FAQ: What are my annual dues going to be and what do they cover?

Answer: At present, the annual assessment is $2.25 per $1,000.00 of the fair market value of the property as determined on or about January 1st of each year by the county appraiser. Therefore, to figure the amount, multiply the fair market value of the home times .00225 to get the annual assessment amount. For the exact amount, please call the Association office at 614-889-0922 during regular business hours of 8:00 - 4:30, Monday-Friday.

The annual assessment is billed one year in arrears, just like property taxes. For example, the 2016 annual assessment will be invoiced on or around the third week of January 2017.

The annual assessment dues cover the maintenance and upkeep of all common areas and amenities, capital improvements, and the costs of running the Association. The assessment collection gives all residents the right to use the Muirfield amenities free of charge.

Each sub-association has dues that are in addition to the Muirfield Association annual assessment. Each sub-association is autonomous in their dues amount, payment timing, and what the dues cover. Muirfield Association staff does not know this information. Please visit the Sub-Associations page for sub-association contact information.

Back to Top


FAQ: When are invoices sent, when are they due and how may I pay?

Answer: Annual assessment invoices are sent each year between the third week of January and the first week of February. Regardless of when they are sent, residents have 30 days from the date of the invoice to pay. Read more on the Assessment Collection Policy.

The Association accepts checks, money orders, and cash. Many residents pay online through their bank's standard bill pay program. Most banks do not charge fees to utilize online banking and Muirfield Association does not charge any fee at all to use this method.

Payments may be mailed, brought to the office, or sent via your bank's bill pay program. There is a locked drop box available by the front door of the office in the event the office is not open. Do not leave cash in the drop box! The Association is not responsible for stolen items.

FAQ: What happens during the Memorial Tournament?

Answer: The Muirfield Village Golf Club mails tournament information and parking passes to residents each year before the tournament begins. Parking passes are provided to residents at no charge and enable residents to get to their homes without delay. The passes also ensure that only residents can park in the neighborhood. Although traffic is sometimes heavy on the main streets, it is very well handled during the tournament. Please contact the Golf Club directly for any concerns regarding the tournament or parking at 614-889-6700.

Tickets to the tournament are not included, however, they are available for purchase from The Muirfield Village Golf Club. Call 614-889-6712 or 877-MT BADGE or visit the Muirfield Village Golf Club at http://thememorialtournament.com/.

FAQ: I'm moving to Muirfield but want to be certain I can have a pool/playset/basketball hoop/etc. Can you approve these before I move?

Answer: Sometimes, potential residents will only want to move to Muirfield if they will be permitted to install elements, such as a pool or recreation equipment, or make other changes to the property, such as removing trees and landscaping or adding a house addition.

The Design Control Committee can't grant approval for any change to the property to anyone other than the current owner. Therefore, the current owner will need to submit a preliminary plan for the change the potential resident would like to make. There is no cost to submit a preliminary plan.

To request preliminary approval for a property change, an owner needs to:

  • Find the application for the change/addition/removal Design Review page. Applications are in alphabetic order.
  • Submit the application with everything requested (except the fee, which does not apply to preliminary plans) to the Association office. The mailing address is on the Contact page. Be certain to indicate that this is a preliminary plan. Applications that do not require physical material samples may be emailed to info@muirfieldassociation.com.
  • If a site map is requested, an overhead view of the property from a site such as Bing or Google maps will usually suffice. Maps are also available on the auditor's site. Contact the office if questions.
  • The committee will respond to the owner in writing. If time is of extreme essence, please call the Association office at 614-889-0922.

Submitting a preliminary plan does not actually allow for an addition, change or removal to be performed on the property. It also does not obligate the current owner or buyer to make the change. Rather, it allows a potential buyer to know whether an addition, change or removal would be approvable. Once a buyer owns the property, they will need to officially submit the plan to the Design Control Committee for the change they wish to make.
