A: Prior to adding an above ground pool, it is advised that you review the governing documents for you association. The CCRs will determine if above ground pools are permitted and will often times determine the location, dimensions, and style of the pool. Many associations do not allow above ground pools, so it is advised to review the CCRs first. If you are unsure, submit an improvement request to the ARC committee for review.
A: Please fill out an ARC Request Form and submit all necessary information. Requests will require the roof brand, warranty information, and specific shingle color. A color picture or brochure of the shingle you want to install will be needed. If you are completing an identical replacement, a current color photo of the home and roof will be needed.
A: Please fill out the Improvement Request Form and submit all the necessary information. Requests require a plat map with the location of the new fence marked. Additionally, specifications on the fence – including material, total height, and picket width, are needed. Any fence stain or paint should also be included with a color picture. If you plan to replace an existing fence with an identical new fence, a color photo of the current fence should also be submitted.
A: Checking your community documents will give you an idea of what maintenance, modifications, enhancements, or property additions the community allows. Often, they will also outline sizes or materials for some common requests. However, all improvements, including roofs, fences, sheds, painting, or even solar panels, must be submitted for committee review prior to any project being started. Please complete the Architectural Request Form for your project.
A: This varies by association. The governing documents for your community will outline the longest time allowed for approval. Most communities have 30 to 60 days to make a decision. The committee is made up of community volunteers; as neighbors, they work to respond quickly to each request. Please complete the Architectural Request Form for your project.
A: No, you must submit all documentation through Your HOA. This keeps a record of all improvements and discussions submitted.
A: This is a tricky question, but we’re here to help! The street- facing portion of the fence is the homeowner’s responsibility. If the fence is shared with a neighbor, it is considered joint ownership, and you should work directly with your neighbor to make plans to repair the fence. If your backyard fence is on the perimeter community and is not shared, it is generally the homeowner’s responsibility. You can contact Your HOA directly to be sure your community does not make perimeter fencing repairs. Before making any repairs, please remember to submit an ARC Request.
A: Please fill out the Architectural Request Form and submit all necessary information. Requests require paint brand and specific color/stain name, such as Sherwin Williams Rose Red, and a color photo or sample of the paint/stain. For home painting, a picture of the current home should be included with the areas to be painted marked. If different areas will be different colors, please mark each area and provide information on each color.

A: Storage sheds are common in most neighborhoods and are often found within your DCCRs with clear direction on size, color, and material approved within the association.

Your governing documents can guide the style or colors of shutters, solar screens, or other coverings that may be approved. Please log into your portal and review your governing documents for any specific requirements or exceptions that do not require approval. Your documents will also specify any deposits for construction or specific documents required before the project begins.
A: When making an exterior modification to your home, it is best to seek approval through your association. The ACC committee is responsible for maintaining the harmony of the community and will advise homeowners through the process on what colors, brands, or styles are allowed in your community.
A: Temporary items that can easily be moved and are placed in backyards normally do not require approval from the ACC. Temporary trampolines should not be placed in front yards.
