Architectural Review Committee

Before you paint or start that new project...

Remember that ANY plans you have to change the exterior of your home — including painting and landscaping — MUST be submitted to the Architectural Review Committee and receive approval before work can begin. Other additions that must be approved by the ARC include flagpoles, tree houses, playhouses, signs, exterior lights, monuments, markers, outdoor statuary, patios, decks or any outdoor decorative objects. This takes advanced planning, so the ARC meets numerous times throughout the year to accommodate requests for review. 

Architectural Review

The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) has the crucial charge of reviewing home plans and administering the Design Guidelines, with numerous reviews handled each year for home plans, landscaping and renovation related submittals.
