The latest Architectural news can be found under the green CREEKSIDE CURRENTS UPDATES tab at the lower-right. Another green tab will show you what the various Creekside color schemes actually look like on houses.
The primary responsibility of the Architectural Committee is to preserve the character of the architectural style of Creekside Village. This is a key factor in protecting the quality and value of homes in the community. It requires cooperation from residents and informative, cooperative and respectful input from this committee. It can only work if each homeowner shares with the committee in advance what changes the homeowner has in mind to anything visible from outside his/her fence.
To this end, it is the responsibility of the Architectural Committee to approve any structural change, addition or improvement that is visible from outside the owner's lot. The committee works with the HOA management to ensure that the requisite application forms are submitted by the homeowner and that approval for all architectural changes is obtained before work begins.
The committee invites homeowners to contact us well in advance, even as they begin their planning, because another set of eyes early on might make the process smoother and even save money. New Creekside owners in particular may want to look at the green ADVICE TO NEWCOMERS tab at the right and at the various QUICKSTART GUIDES there, particularly on Painting and Staining.
Then, for example, if you intend to paint your home, well in advance please submit Application Form AC6 for painting sided homes or Form AC7 for staining shingled homes. With it, also submit the corresponding Application Attachment form showing the specific colors you have chosen for siding, trim and garage door. You can obtain these forms from the Creekside office or you can download them at the right under APPLICATION FORMS AND ATTACHMENTS.
The Architectural Committee and/or the HOA manager periodically inspects the exteriors of all Creekside residences. These inspections focus only on items visible from outside the homeowner's fence; they include routine maintenance issues like repainting, re-roofing and fence repair as well as new construction and additions. The committee will issue violation notices if necessary. Then it welcomes questions from homeowners about making any needed corrections.
We look forward to working with you.
Chris Albrow chairs the Architectural Committee.
