To ensure that NorthWest Crossing in Bend, Oregon is developed and maintained to the highest practical aesthetic standards, certain real estate architectural Rules & Design Guidelines have been established.

The Construction Approval section describes the application and approval process through the Architectural Review Committee. The Architectural Standards section describes allowable standards and regulations to be used in the design and construction process.

The NorthWest Crossing Rules & Design Guidelines have been divided into smaller sections to facilitate faster download times, although these are still large documents and each may take a few minutes to download.
