The ACC shall have the authority to administer these rules outlined in Section 3.
3.1.1. The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) shall consist of a minimum of three (3) to maximum of five (5) lot owners appointed by the Board of Directors. One Board member will be appointed to act as a communication facilitator between the ACC, Board, and managing agent. Such appointee may also serve as a member of the ACC.

3.1.2. The ACC shall have the authority to determine, establish and apply standards, involving but not limited to, aesthetic considerations of harmony of construction and color, which it determines to be in the best interest of providing for attractive development of the community. Because of their dynamic and subjective nature, the ACC is not required to document the standards it applies so long as they hold true to the intent of maintaining neighborhood aesthetics.
3.1.3. The ACC has the right to approve or disapprove any proposed installation, construction or remodeling project that will result in a visible change to a Lot or improvements on a Lot when viewed from the street or a neighboring Lot.
3.1.4.

Applications for ACC approval must be submitted using the ACC Request for Architectural Review Form. The application must include plans, drawings, specifications and plot plans, including the nature, kind, shape, height, materials, colors and locations, plus a project timeline and plans for mitigation of any negative impacts on the neighborhood.

In the event the ACC fails to approve or disapprove within (30) days a proposal submitted pursuant to Rule 3.2, the proposal would be deemed approved for the limited purpose of the compliance with Rules and Regulations.

Once a possible violation is reported by another owner and/or by the community's Security Patrol, if any, or otherwise becomes known to the Association, it will be investigated and a determination made as to whether a violation has actually occurred. If a violation is found, written notice of the violation will be sent or delivered to the offending Member, warning him/her that a subsequent or continuing violation may result in being fined and requesting immediate and future compliance with these rules.

If the Member sent a notice of violation has a subsequent (second or more) violation, the Association may assess fines against him/her and the lot according to the Fine Schedule as set forth in Section 7.2. In the Board's discretion, legal action may be taken against the violating homeowner at any time after a subsequent violation. Additional fines will continue to be assessed and accrue while any enforcement or other legal action is in process, if the homeowner continues to violate these Rules.

7.2.3. The Association will bill the offending homeowner the applicable fines such at such time and for such periods as the Association considers reasonable. If, after the fines accrue they remain unpaid and outstanding for more than 90 days from the date of the first such billing, interest shall commence and apply to the unpaid fines at the rate of five percent (5%) per month on the unpaid balance.
