ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL COMMITTEE

The purpose of the ACC is to promote and ensure a high level of quality, harmony and conformity throughout the neighborhood. The ACC reviews homeowners’ modification requests by using the rules set forth in the Association’s Bylaws and the ACC Design & Development Guideline. Any improvements made must be aesthetically pleasing. They should maintain, or enhance, the value of the home (which, in turn, maintains homeowner values for the community). The primary responsibilities of the ACC are to:

  •  Continually review and provide approval decisions on homeowner plans submitted for exterior improvements.
  •  Give a timely response to the homeowner in writing. The ACC must respond to homeowners within 30 days of submission.
  • Monitor and report any suspected infractions of the ACC Design & Development Guideline. Any suspected infractions are to be sent directly to the Association office.
  • Report activities to, and work at the direction of, the HOA Board of Directors.

The Architectural Control Committee is responsible for approving and documenting all alterations and improvements to the exterior of the units and the lot the unit is located on, including window treatments that are visible from the outside, and deck, balcony and patio issues. The ACC is primarily concerned with exterior aesthetics. Following is a chart of the kinds of issues that the ACC would regulate:

structure design
structure Location
structure height
window replacement
shutters
paint colors
roofing materials
parking areas or driveways
fencing
plants & trees
landscaping
exterior lighting
satellite dish-solar panel

Separate Approvals. Because an Association’s Architectural Control Committee and the city/county building departments are separate jurisdictions, an owner must get separate approval from each agency/department. In other words, obtaining a building permit from the city does not confer approval by the Association. An owner must separately submit plans to and receive approval from the Association and vice versa.

All proposed changes to the exterior of a dwelling or lot (bushes/trees, gardens, buildings, fences, walls or other structures, or major alterations, additions, or improvements, including roof, siding & windows) that will affect the aesthetic features and characteristics of the community must be submitted for approval to the Architectural Control Committee before making any changes.
