PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE By Scott Ward

The ACC Application process

If you are going to make a change to the exterior of your home or your lawn, you need to fill out an ACC Application. The process is quite simple and can prevent costly mistakes.

Overview

• Decide what project you want to undertake. • Go to www.willowpointe.org and click on the Documents section. • Print out and fill out the ACC Application COMPLETELY. • Submit the application either by email, fax, or postal mail to the address/number on the form • The Application is scanned by RMI, dated, and forwarded to the Architectural Review Committee (ARC - a group of homeowners who volunteer to review and comment on all applications) • The ARC submits their recommendations/suggestions and the decision is sent to RMI to be relayed to the Homeowner. • The process can take up to one month, however, we work to get most processed within a week or two. Helpful Suggestions If you are modifying your home with an addition, sidewalk to your backyard, shed/play structure, etc., a COPY of the ‘Survey of Plat’ is excellent to include. This would be found with your closing documents when you bought your home…it is usually legal sized and has the property lot and all easements shown. Just make a copy of this document and then draw in the location of the proposed improvement.

More is Better If you are installing a patio cover like your neighbors, submit a picture if possible. If you are buying a playstructure, send the image from the manufacturer. Anything you can provide will prevent the ARC from having to deny the application for lack of information. Sheds and Play Structures Sheds are limited to a height of 10’ from grade and playstructures limited to 12’ from grade. This is NOT a blanket approval. An ACC Application still needs to be completed to show WHERE on the property the addition is going to be placed. Give us a Sample All homes must be painted an approved color with approved roof shingles. The approved colors/shingles may be found in the Documents section of the Community Website. ANY applications deviating from this list MUST submit a sample with the application to speed up approval. The sample will be compared to the approved shingle list to see if it sufficiently matches approved colors. Emergency Situations We are reasonable people and we just need to know when an emergency situation presents itself. If your roof is leaking, we are not going to make you wait 2 weeks to get an application approved. But we need to know the situation so that we can help process the application. This may involve a direct Board approval, but we know that sometimes stuff just comes up and needs immediate attention.
