HOA Request

REVIEW REQUIREMENTS
The Homeowner's Association is charged with upholding the requirements set out in our governing documents.  To ensure we remain compliant, homeowners must request approval for any changes that impact the exterior of their property.  Changes that solely impact the inside of a home are exempt from review.
 
ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL COMMITTEE
An Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is required by our governing documents.  The ACC is a committee made up of 5 members of the community who volunteer their time and effort in service to the community.  The ACC reviews requests submitted by HOA members to ensure compliance with guidelines established in our governing documents.
 
SUBMISSION PROCESS
Before You Start:
  • Consider your neighbors.  Will the change you are making potentially impact those around you in a negative way?
  • Consider whether or not your change might impact drainage in the area.  Homeowners are responsible for correcting drainage issues caused by changes made to their property.  These kinds of corrections are often costly and time consuming.  Consider engaging an engineer to review your proposed change for potential impacts to run-off and drainage. 
  • Check the "ACC Review Exemptions" section below to find out if your project is exempt from the approval process.
If You Are Ready to Proceed with Your Change Request:
  1. Fill out this request form (PDF or Word format).
  2. Gather supporting documentation, including a plat map that shows the location of your change on your property, and other documentation such as diagrams, photos, etc.  Keep in mind, if the committee cannot clearly understand how your project will look then your request will not be approved.
  3. Email the completed request form and your other supporting documentation to Alice English of Goodwin Management.
  4. Goodwin will upload your documentation to an online portal to create your official request. 
  5. Once your request is in the portal the ACC will be notified by email that a new request has been submitted.
  6. The ACC has 30 days from the time your case is created in the portal to review your request. 
  7. You will be notified of the ACC's decision via email.
Be sure continue to monitor your email.  If the ACC reaches out with questions or requests additional documentation, the clock stops and your request is paused until the ACC receives your response.
 
NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT ALL OF THE REQUIRED DOCUMENTS YOUR PROJECT WILL BE DENIED OR SIGNIFICANTLY DELAYED.
