Architectural Review

Plans for planting, painting or construction? You came to the right place. Always check with a Board member to see if you need to submit an ARC Form before you start your project. Articles 9 & 10 of the CCRs provide an in-depth discussion of projects needing ARC review.

And remember—ARC first, project launch second. Here’s a quick reference for common ARC projects:

Fences

No fence of any kind shall be erected or maintained upon any Lot until the plans and specifications therefor have been approved in writing by the ARC.  6-foot lattice topped vinyl fences that enclose the rear of the property are generally approved

Painting Exterior of Home

If planning to change the color of your home an ARC approval is required.

Tree Planting/Replacement/Additions

Removal / replacement or addition of trees on private residential lots requires submission of an ARC form.  Allowed reasons for removal; tree is dead or tree is causing problems with sidewalks, lighting or underground services (water, sewer, irrigation).
