What is the approval process?

The ARC is a five member elected board of your neighbors. All five members lost their home in the October 2017 fire and where elected for their first term in 2018. Each member reviews your design and judges if it meets the design criteria set out in the CCRs. Each member votes and the majority (3 out of 5) approves or denies the design. If the committee denies the design, we must tell you what you need to do to bring your design into compliance with the CCRs.
