Architectural Committee

Our governing documents require that the Association approve all proposed architectural changes before any work is started. The importance of this requirement cannot be overstated when you consider the reason for such a restriction.

Membership in a Homeowners Association requires compliance with pre-existing conditions and regulations. One of the biggest advantages of these conditions is the protection of your property values. The value of your home is directly related to the condition, appearances, and aesthetics of our community as a whole.

By regulating the kind and types of architectural changes that can be done, the Association is better able to maintain property values. Getting the Association to approve all proposed architectural changes is not just a good idea to protect your investment, it is a requirement! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Association Board of Directors.

Committee Functions/Responsibilities:

  • Review AC requests for compliance to deed and CCR restrictions; also considering aesthetics of the community
  • Give timely response to the Association Board of disposition
  • Report any unapproved construction activity to Association Board so Homeowner can be notified

Committee Limitations
