Are there Design Requirements as to what changes we can make to our house?
Yes, there are in the applicable Section Covenants, authorized by the By-Laws, specified in your Deed. Examples include fences, outside structures, etc. We suggest that you read these carefully before submitting an ACR.
Is it true that there are appearance requirements for our property in the SCCA By-Laws?
Yes. The SCCA By-Laws are in the Covenants concerning appearance requirements. The SCCA Board of Directors, who are elected by the SCCA Homeowners, are required by the By-Laws to ensure that these appearance requirements are being met by Homeowners in order to preserve the appearance and property values of the community
When do I have to submit an Architectural Change Request (ACR)
to the Architectural Review Committee?
Any time that you make ANY kind of change to the outside of your house including color changes, landscaping changes, additions, decks, fences, garage doors, or any other changes that costs $500.00 or more. ACR forms can be found on the SCCA web site under documents and can be downloaded with ease in Microsoft Word, so can be completed, scanned and emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org). All completed ACRs from Homeowners that live within SCCA should be sent to the Architectural Chairman. It normally takes about a week to 10 days for the Committee to return the ACR either Approved or Not approved, with Comments.
When and how often does the SCCA meet?
General membership meetings are held annually in the Fall, and whenever needed. Date, time and place are published in advance, usually with the Annual Election Notice & Ballot. Board of Directors’ meetings are as needed. Matters may be brought to the attention of the Association at general meetings or by contacting any board member and to determine next Board meeting.
