Architectural Control

Architectural Control

The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is responsible with regulating the aesthetic environment and standards within the eight (8) units which make up the Golden Eagle community. The goal of the ACC is to assist all residents in understanding and complying with existing covenants, restrictions and by-laws of our community. 

While each of the eight (8) units of our community have some very specific wording pertinent to their unit neighborhood, in general, all covenants, restrictions and by-laws are largely consistent in wording and application. The obligation of the ACC is to apply these covenants and by-laws uniformly and consistently across our Golden Eagle community. This includes the right to refuse to approve any submission, which in the opinion of the ACC Committee, is not suitable or desirable for any reason of pure aesthetics, inconsistent with the overall harmony of the respective neighborhoods or inconsistent with future development.

The purpose of architectural reviews is to maintain the community attractiveness for the enjoyment of residents, for the protection of property and to maintain home values. As such, no exterior property, building, structure, fence, dock or other improvement may be made, altered, structurally modified, installed, constructed or erected without the prior consent of the Architectural Control Committee (ACC).
