All exterior changes to Lots must be approved in writing by the Architectural Review Board (ARB). Examples of items that need approval are (but not limited to):
If you are unsure of whether or not you need approval, please contact us. It's always better to check and be sure to avoid costly changes after the fact. When submitting any construction requests, a detailed drawing (plat) of the Lot must be provided. All applications must be detailed and should include things like: include color samples, measurements and website links or brochures to view the proposed product.
The ARB committee has 30 days to respond once a completed application is submitted, but makes every effort to respond in a timely fashion, typically within 2-3 weeks. Once the committee has had the chance to review the application, you will receive a letter via the property manager to notify you if your application is approved or declined. If your request is declined, you will be provided the steps that you can take in order to appeal to the Board.
Our community is organized and bound by a set of governing documents. Typically the Covenants and Architecture Guidelines documents provide the structure for how each property should be maintained and the rules for what may take place on each lot. Homeowners are required to abide by these rules and the Association is required to enforce them. An annual inspection of all lots (including those of Board members) is performed, typically in the springtime. At that time, if any violations are noted, homeowners are sent a reminder letter outlining the corrections that should be made and a timeline in which the owner is requested to come into compliance. Throughout the year, follow up inspections are made by the property manager, Board and/or ARB committee. Homeowners may also report any suspected violations to the property manager or Board.
