Architectural Control Committee Approval for Improvements
The Architectural Control Committee (herein referred to as “ACC”) must approve all buildings and improvements to any “Lot” or “Homesite”, including but not limited to the following standards: storage buildings, driveways, fences, patio covers, curbs, swimming pools, spas and hot tubs. The following are guidelines for planning an improvement:
- STORAGE BUILDINGS. Must be placed on a poured cement slab foundation no less than the external dimensions of the floor. Exterior walls and roof must match the residence and/or garage. Placement of the storage building can not encroach on building lines or easements.
- FENCES. Chain link fences are not allowed. All fences must be constructed of wood, metal or masonry. Vinyl and wire mesh decorative fences are allowed depending upon material strength and finished look. Fences may be constructed in the utility easements at owner’s risk. No chain link dog runs or kennels are allowed.
- PATIO COVERS. Materials must match existing house roofing materials. No metal or tin roof finished materials will be allowed unless it matches the house’s existing roof material.
- CURBS. Must be saw cut for driveway and walkway construction.
- SWIMMING POOLS. Above ground swimming pools are not allowed. The following requirements for pools are by way of illustration and not limitation: 1) the pool surface, deck and all mechanical and electrical equipment must be adequately screened from public view with a combination of trees, hedges, walls or fences. This is especially important if the property is surrounded by a wrought iron fence or is on a common area or on Lake Conroe. 2) The pool cannot encroach on building or set back lines. 3) Pool decks may extend beyond the building lines, but must allow adequate room for landscaping and fencing. 4) The pool must not cause drainage of any kind onto adjacent properties. This drainage can come from either the pool itself or from excessive run off due to the reduction of green space in the yard that can absorb water.
- SPAS and HOT TUBS. May be in-ground or self-contained above ground models. Spas and hot tubs must meet the same location and drainage requirements as required for pools. Spas and hot tubs must also follow all of the same submission and material specifications, as those required for pools. Spas and hot tubs shall be located in the rear or side yard so that they are completely screened from public view.
Requests for “ACC” approval must be submitted to “POA” Manager. If there are any questions with regard to needing “ACC” approval, consult the “POA” Manager before proceeding with construction.
Requests for approval of residences, garages and other buildings and/or improvements must be submitted with: 1) two (2) complete set of plans, 2) a property survey by a licensed surveyor showing the legal description of the property easements, set back lines, building lines and complete dimensions, 3) scale plot plan with proposed improvements located by dimensions and including building lines, set back lines, easements, driveways, walkways, drainage and any planned boat house or fencing, 4) floor plan with all dimensions complete including door swings, window locations, porches, garages, etc. plus the square footage area of the living area and the total square footage of the residence, 5) elevation of front, rear and side elevations showing materials of construction, windows, vents and roof lines, 6) a concrete foundation plan indicating materials, strengths, beams, reinforcing steel, slopes and slab elevation.
A “Form Survey” is required prior to the pouring of any foundation.
