This section is only a brief description of a few of the items in the Covenants & Restrictions. Please see the entire document.

Your community manager is Jason McAllister and he can be reached at:
The Architecural Review Commitee (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 adhereing 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 addidional exterior lighting.
Please fill out the ARC form and email it back to us with any supporting documentation you may have. You can find the ARC form here.
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 sending it back to your manager. The application should include any supporting documentation including, paint colors, construction material, photos of similar projects, etc.
Just like any other change to the exterior of your home you must first get approval from the ARC. Once you fill out the ARC request form please send it back to your community manager for approval.
When you close on your home the builder should give you a plat of your lot. On this plat please make a sketch of where the fence will be installed and where it will connect to your home. Please submit that sketch with your application.
The fence must be made of wood in either a dogeared or shadowbox style. Only a natural color stain is allowed. Further, to protect your own investment and to keep the neighborhood looking good we ask that you seal your wood fence.
The fence must be at least 20′ back from the front corner of the home.
Accessory Structures. Except as otherwise provided for herein, no patio cover,
building or storage unit of any kind shall be erected, placed or set on any Lot unless such
structure is attached to the House erected on the same Lot and the architecture and character of
such structure matches that of said House. Notwithstanding the foregoing, one ( 1) accessory
building may be erected, placed or set on any Lot if such structure is: (a) no more than eight (8)
feet in height; (b) located upon the back yard of such Lot; ( c) enclosed on all sides by a wooden
fence of at least six (6) feet in height (which must be approved by the Architectural Control
Committee); (d) of the same architecture and character of the House located on such Lot; and, (e)
approved by the Architectural Review Committee.
Although the Covenants state the height requirements must be below 8′ we do allow homeowners to go 9′ in some cases.
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.
Swimming Pools. 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.
Generaly 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.
