The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) has certain requirements to modifications to the exterior of your home or your lot.
The purpose of the process is to make sure all homeowners adhere to the Covenants & Restrictions when it comes to exterior modifications. This process is very important in adhering to the original vision of the subdivision.
Further, by following these practices helps to make sure home values do not decline. It is a pretty straight forward process. We just ask that all homeowners go through the proper channels before making any exterior modifications.
These modifications include, but are not limited to, installing a fence, shed, extending a driveway, planting new trees or shrubs, painting the exterior of the home, and installing additional exterior lighting.
Please fill out the ARC Form located on this website.
No long-term parking on the streets. This includes consistent overnight parking.
Trash cans MUST be stored out of sight. They cannot be seen from the street. Please store in your garage or back yard.
All changes made to the exterior of your home must be approved by the Architectural Review Committee.
The first step is downloading and filling out the ARC Form and upload any supporting documentation including, paint colors, construction material, photos of similar projects, etc

Amendment of Section 7.05(1) of the Declaration. Section 7.05(1) of the Declaration is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
Fences constructed or erected on any Lot shall be six (6) foot wooden privacy or shadow box style fences left as natural wood, or stained with a natural wood stain; provided, however, that wooden fences shall only be permitted on the sides of Lots adjacent to the lake and the fencing along the back of such Lots shall be four ( 4) foot aluminum black fences. No fence shall be constructed from the front property line to 20 feet behind the comer of the house nearest front property line. All Lots shall be grassed in the entire designated yard area by sodding and the yard shall be landscaped upon the completion of construction and before occupancy. It shall be the Owner’s responsibility to maintain any landscaping or fences situated on a Lot so that such improvements remain in an attractive, well-kept condition.
You Must Have ARC Approval. Please fill out the online form.
Recreational vehicles and campers shall not be parked or stored on any Lot.
Boats shall be parked in garages or basements or shall be stored out of sight from
all neighbors and fully screened by a privacy fence of no less than six (6) feet in
Fully screened means it cannot be seen, at all, from the street or neighboring lots.
Outdoor Lighting. No exterior lighting fixture (other than fixtures approved by the Architectural Review Committee) shall be installed within or upon any Lot without adequate and proper shielding of the fixture. No lighting fixture shall be installed that may become an annoyance or a nuisance to Owners or occupants of adjacent properties. No flood lights or security lights shall be allowed on any Lot. No light shall be attached to the soffits of any improvements on the Lot unless the lights are recessed.
No swimming pools shall be constructed, altered or maintained upon any Lot without the prior written approval of the Architectural Review Committee in accordance with Article Six hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any such swimming pool must also be constructed, equipped, and maintained in accordance with the laws, ordinances, regulations, rules and standards of any city, county, and/or state authorities having jurisdiction over the Subdivision.
Any Owner who desires to construct a swimming pool on such Owner’s Lot shall also, prior to completion of such swimming pool, construct a fence around such swimming pool, which fence must also be approved by the Architectural Review Committee in accordance with Article Six hereof. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, (a) above-ground pools are expressly prohibited, and (b) pools may not be screened.
Generally this is not an issue. All changes must still go through the ARC and a request must be made. Most landscaping improvements are allowed except certain items such as large palm trees.
Most streetlight poles have an identification number on them. Please look for that number and report the pole number to Landmark at 251-960-1444.
