The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is tasked to approve exterior changes to properties. This is in keeping with the Bylaws and Covenants and is necessary to preserve a harmonious design for the community and protect property values. As such, homeowners must receive advance approval from the ACC before exterior work is done or any structures (e.g., playhouses, swing sets, trampolines, arbors, etc.) are erected. Failing to get ACC approval will result in LIQUIDATED DAMAGES being applied.

Residents who need ACC approval should fill out the appropriate form below and send it via email to so a member of the ACC can review the application and respond. Any questions can be emailed to

Outside Storage Options: To address the need for outside storage, the board voted in 2014 to allow storage boxes that do not exceed 54" in height and are placed behind the fence in an inconspicuous location on the side of the house, or in another location specifically approved by the ACC. The approved storage boxes must be resin or similar material unless otherwise approved by the ACC. To give owners an idea of the type of storage box the ACC and board consider appropriate, please see the following links:  Example 1, Example 2, Example 3.
