Architectural Review Committee Process

Download a copy of the Basset Creek Application Here: Basset Creek ARC Application 

One of the benefits of a community association is the ability to create and maintain a pleasing and cohesive physical appearance within the neighborhood. And, to accomplish that goal, the Basset Creek Architectural Review Committee is charged with reviewing any permanent exterior alteration or improvements. Please keep in mind that Architectural Review Committee Approval is required for any alteration or improvement to the exterior of your property.

Before you begin plans for any alteration or improvement, you should first consult your Community Standards. That document will give you a more detailed understanding of the architectural review process. For your benefit the Association has created an application for exterior alterations/improvements.

As a new resident, you may be thinking of making some alterations and/or improvement on the exterior of your house, or to your yard. If you are planning on doing so, right now would be the appropriate time to submit the required application, as defined be the covenants, to the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) for consideration.

Examples of improvements that need approval are:

  • Fences
  • Swimming Pools
  • Landscaping
  • Patios
  • Gutters
  • Exterior Painting

Before anyone else performs any of the following work on any Lot, the plans and specifications for the work must be reviewed and approved in writing by the Committee:

  • Clearing of one or more trees from the lot.
  • Grading the lot.
  • Constructing, erecting or installing any structure on the lot, including (without limitation) the following structures: any house, garage, shed or other building; any porch, deck or balcony; any fence, wall or gate; any mailbox, newspaper box, or light post; any retaining wall; terrace or other landscaping structure (including landscape curbing); any patio, driveway or parking area; any sport court; and any swimming pool (whether above ground or below ground).
  • Changing the exterior color, style or materials of any structure on the Lot

The owner is responsible for obtaining any required building permits. The owner, not the Association, Board of Directors, or Review Committee, is responsible for (i) the construction standards and specifications relating to the alteration/improvements and construction work; and (ii) determining whether the alteration/improvements violate any restriction or requirements imposed by any governmental authority having jurisdiction over the Unit.

The owner shall hold harmless, indemnify and defend the Association and its officers, directors, and agents from and against any expenses, claims, damages, losses or other liabilities, including without limitation attorneys' fees and cost of litigation incurred by the Association, arising out of (i) any part of the alterations/improvements which violates any governmental law, code, ordinance, or regulations; (ii) the adequacy of the plans or specifications submitted by the owner in connection with this application; and (iii) the construction of the alterations/improvements

Obtaining approval from the Architectural Review Committee shall require the following:
