Isn’t It Time You Joined Your Neighborhood ACC Committee?

Help Keep Your Neighborhood Beautiful.

If you live in a Homeowners Association, HOA, Property Owners Association, Community Improvement Association, Planned Unit Development or POA, you are required by the governing documents in your Association to submit an improvement request to your association Architectural Control Committee before you begin any work on your improvement.

The Architectural Control Committee or ACC protects property values in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Marietta, Kennesaw and surrounding areas from possible detrimental impact of uncontrolled exterior changes by homeowners. It does this by reviewing and then approving or disapproving homeowners’ applications for such changes based upon conformance of the proposed changes to the architectural standards outlined in the governing documents.

In a higher-density living environment, the investment each of us has made in our property is vulnerable to actions of other homeowners in the neighborhood. Therefore, the Architectural Control/Review Committee has been chartered in the ACC or ARC Article of the CC&R’s to protect the property values from possible uncontrolled exterior changes by other homeowners.

In protecting property values, members of the Architectural Control/Review Committee have serious responsibilities. As a member you must be able to remove yourself from personal and social considerations and evaluate applications objectively relative to the architectural standards. You must be prepared to make hard decisions. There may be times when you will have to deny an application for someone you know.

The ACC/ARC helps maintain the appearance of the community and serves and important function in every neighborhood.  If you want to make a difference in your neighborhood, considering signing up to be a member of the ACC committee.
