ARB Frequently asked questions

  • What is the ARB and what does it mean to me?
    • The Architectural Review Board (ARB) is a designated committee whose purpose is to review proposed changes to the properties and make recommendations to the Board of Directors (BOD) based of pre-defined criteria. The ARB reviews all structural and landscape changes (including cosmetic) and reports their findings to the Board of Directors at the monthly board meetings along with their recommendation to approve or deny the proposed changes and the reasons for their recommendation. The Board of Directors may chose to follow the ARB recommendation or make a different decision based on a majority vote. The ARB findings are line item and the BOD may chose to accept the recommendations as a whole or in part or conditionally. The BOD decisions are recorded in the meeting minutes and are available to the community for review.

  • What items require ARB  and Board approval?
    • As a general guideline if it can be seen by your neighbors or a permit is required for your project, your are going to need to get it approved. Interior projects typically do not require an ARB. If you are uncertain whether you need to get an ARB just ask here and we will let you know.
  • What happens if I don’t want to submit to the ARB?
    • If you decide to bypass the approval process and an approval was necessary fines and legal actions can be taken for the violation. It is strongly recommend that you follow the process that is in place to protect not only yourself but the community as a whole.
  • How long does it take for the approval process?
    • ARB request forms must be submitted no later than the preceding Friday before the monthly Board of Directors meeting. Any requests submitted after that point will have to wait until the following meeting to be considered. Requests are processed in a timely fashion and every effort is made to return a decision as quickly as possible to the homeowner, however it may be possible to submit a request by the deadline and still not have a decision returned by the next Board of Director’s meeting. There is no cut and dried answer for this question as there may be many factors affecting the resolution but typically you can expect a decision returned to you between 1 and 5 weeks.
  • How will I know if my request has been approved or denied?
    • After your request has gone through the review process and been voted on by the Board of directors, you will be contacted with the decision. You may also come to the monthly board meeting to hear the result as it is voted on.
