Architectural Review Committee (ARC) Report

As noted above, at the MPHOA annual meeting in November 2016 the members of the Association elected several new directors to fill vacancies on the Board of Directors. At its regular December meeting, the Board appointed one of them, Steve Bay, as the new Chair of the Architectural Review Committee (ARC), which serves as the Board’s focal point for architectural control matters.

The Board is also considering updating the community’s Architectural Guidelines. Homeowner’s
comments on the current Guidelines and suggestions for improvements or changes are welcome. Please submit any suggestions to the Board via the NRP property manager.

As background for evaluating the Guidelines, and to prepare yourselves to provide comments or other input to the Board on any possible updates, you may find it helpful to familiarize yourself with the Association’s Covenants.

Among other things, the Covenants direct and obligate the Board to “regulate the external design, appearance and location of improvements” on our properties, all with the main goals of protecting and enhancing our property values and preventing activities that would be harmful to property values or the aesthetics – that is, the features that make our community an attractive and pleasant place for each of us to live.
