IMO, if you haven't done so already what you should do is talk to some of the homeowners who have already built pools in RMV or are in the process of construction. Find out what they had to deal with regarding the Association and the county inspectors. Figure out what needs to be on the plans so it gets approved the first time and not a constant resubmittal to an overwhelmed association that will be swamped with requests like yours in the next 6-12 months. Also ask your RMV neighbors about pool contractors and landscape contractors. And expect higher prices due to demand and your zip code.
