Architectural Review Committee (ARC)

Article 5 of The Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s) of the Heritage Parks Association describes Architectural Control for the Association.

Section 5.1 states that there shall be No Improvements or Alterations Without Approval. No Improvement, excavation, landscaping, hardscaping, fence, wall, swimming pool, painting, alteration or other work which alters the exterior appearance of any Lot or its Improvements shall be commenced until plans and specifications, including color selections, a plot plan showing the location, height and external design of the structure or improvement, grading plans, and landscape plans have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Architectural Control Committee. If Improvements, additions, alterations, or modifications are different from those approved by the Architectural Control Committee, such Improvements, additions, alterations, or modifications shall be deemed disapproved and the Member shall promptly correct the nonconforming items to comply with the Architectural Standards, the Architectural Control Committee’s approvals, and City Requirements.

Section 5.6 of the CC&R’s provides that the Board shall appoint an Architectural Control Committee consisting of not less than three (3) nor more than five persons. If the Board does not appoint one, the Board shall automatically be deemed the Architectural Control Committee. The Architectural Control Committee shall have the authority to approve, reject, modify, give conditional approvals, and give limited approvals of Improvements and alterations as provided for in the Association’s Architectural Standards.

Section 5.8 of the CC&R’s describes the process for Submission of Plans. Plans and specifications in accordance with the Association’s Governing Documents shall be submitted to the Architectural Control Committee by personal delivery or certified mail. The plans submitted to the Architectural Control Committee shall show the exterior boundaries of the Lot, the location and height of all proposed structures or improvements, a landscape plan showing the location and maximum height (at full maturity) of any proposed trees, shrubbery or other improvements which could obstruct the view from a residence constructed or to be constructed on another Lot, all existing easements on the Lot and any other information requested by the Architectural Control Committee. Unless a delay in approval by the Architectural Control Committee is the result of (i) the applicant’s failure to properly submit an application in accordance with the Association’s guidelines, or (ii) a reasonable request by the Architectural Control Committee for additional information, the application shall be deemed approved within 30 days of being submitted to the Architectural Control Committee unless the application has been disapproved by the Architectural Control Committee. Provided, however, that all applications that violate the Association’s Governing Documents or Building and Safety Codes are automatically disapproved without action by the Architectural Control Committee unless variances are specifically approved in writing by the Architectural Control Committee. Approvals by the Architectural Control Committee may contain conditions or requests for modification of particular aspects of the Member’s architectural submission.
