According to the Association’s Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CCRs), homeowners interested in significant changes to the exterior appearances of their property must seek approval from the Architectural Review Committee (ARC). These changes include painting a home a different color, changing architectural features of a home, changing or installing a fence, etc. However, the CCRs are sometimes vague in what is allowed and what is not. In order to assist both homeowners and the ARC, I have drafted some guidelines. The guidelines support the information in the CCRs, as well as the information located in the original 2004 design guidelines for New Columbia. The guidelines I have developed are not meant to replace the CCRs, but rather, simply provide homeowners and the ARC a quick reference.
