Autumn Chase Hunt Home Owners Association Architectural Design and Lot Maintenance Guidelines
Posted on Aug 22nd, 2018

Periodically your Board and Covenant Committee reviews and amends the association architectural (ARC) Design Guidelines in order to keep up with current technology, methods, operations and to address guidelines that have been identified as areas of confusion. 
 
Attached is a track changes version so you can easily review. The Board will be publishing the updated guide next month and encourages you to review the track changes version and provide any comment to board@autumnchase.org.  Most changes were simple format and grammatical edits for ease of reading and clarity.  More significant ones are summarized below.
  1. New Construction (page 5):  We deleted the reference to vacant lots since all lots within the community are now improved with  single family or townhomes.
  2. MODIFICATIONS/ALTERATIONS REQUIRING COMMITTEE REVIEW AND APPROVAL (page 6):  Section 9.4(a) of the Declaration provides says that “No Person shall make any addition, alteration, improvement or change of grade in or to any Lot (other than for ordinary and routine repairs and maintenance and not including areas within a building visible from the exterior only because of the transparency of glass doors, walls or windows), without the prior written approval of the covenants Committee.  There was no definition of what constitutes “ordinary and routine repairs” so the Board defined it stating that “Replacing windows, shutters, gutters, railings, decks, garage doors and roof shingles are not considered “ordinary and routine repairs and maintenance”.  
  3. Signatures (page 7):  While we are encouraging the signature of your neighbors, we understand you may not be able to obtain them with ease.  We don’t want you to delay so just provide a brief note as to the problem with getting them and turn in the application.  The homeowners on the other hand, must always sign.
  4. Artificial Turf (page 11):  Yes we have had inquiries so we figured we need to put some guidance out.
