The architectural design integrity and quality throughout Meridian is maintained through the implementation of Protective Covenants, which include strict design controls. These Covenants establish standards for planning and design, which are fair to all parties and are intended
to assure maintenance of value for all Meridian properties.
The Protective Covenants of Meridian International Business Center legally apply to all land that is part of Meridian, regardless of ownership and are independent of the zoning and land use regulations of local governments. The system of land use control created by the Covenants includes not only the Covenants but also a Planned Development, Review Procedures, and Design Criteria.
Under the Covenants, any proposals to construct, modify or demolish improvements within Meridian must obtain plan approval from the DCC prior to commencement. The DCC's review and approval process also applies to signage, changes in property use, and maintenance activities that take place on or with respect to property that is part of Meridian. The DCC meets on a regular basis to review plan submittals. After the DCC approves a plan submittal, an applicant may proceed with a project, but only in strict compliance with the terms and conditions of approval. The DCC performs periodic site inspections, both during development and on an ongoing basis thereafter to ensure compliance.
