Architectural Control Committee - ACC
The rules and regulations of this Association provides for an ACC to control and govern the external structure and landscaping of each lot in accordance with the original style of structure, color and landscaping as delivered by the original builder. You do not need permission to maintain the structure and landscape of your lot if you are not changing anything.

This subdivision was founded in 1987 and it is reasonable and ordinary for the owner of each lot to pursue improvements and modifications that enhance the real and perceptual value of their property and such action will be based on the aesthetics and visual trends of the present. The covenants, rules and regulations of this Association requires each lot owner to seek ACC approval prior to any improvement or modification of the original structure, color or original landscaping of their lot.

With that legal statement behind us lets talk the real world benefit of the ACC. The ACC is not here to hinder your project or creativity but rather to enhance your project and creativity. It is rare in practice for the ACC to decline a request. Following this process and acquiring ACC approval protects your investment of labor and expense to improve your lot, preventing any other lot owner from filing a legally actionable complaint.

Violations: Gwinnett County Enforcement
It is upon each homeowner of this community to police their immediate area. If you think one of your neighbors is in violation you can bring this to the attention of the county for inspection and enforcement. Violations of the rules and regulations of Gwinnet County ordinances are processed by the Planning and Development Department. The majority of the rules and regulations of this Association are covered by the county and since any lot owner can report violations directly, that is the best place to start. A county citation carries far more weight and is considered far more serious to most lot owners. Your information is kept private by the county when reporting a violation. If county ordinances do not cover the violation but the Association does, then please fill out an ACC Violation Form.

Violations: CVHA Enforcement
It is upon each homeowner of this community to police their immediate area. Violations of the rules and regulations of this Association are processed by the ACC. If you think one of your neighbors is in violation you can bring this to the attention of the ACC for inspection, confirmation and enforcement. If the offending homeowner is in violation a ruling will be processed allowing legal action by the Board (or the reporting homeowner per covenants). Your case is much stronger if you can cite the rule and regulation of the covenants or county code that has been violated. All ACC Violation Forms are protected by the right to privacy of this corporation and therefore, your information is kept private by the corporation. No Board Director or ACC member can publicly divulge this private information.
