Got A Question
What is an ARB and when do I need one?
ARB stands for Architecture Review Board. Our Board of Directors serve as our ARB Board. The Board of Directors wants the paperwork to be as simple as possible for everyone. You can view and print a copy of our ARB form, found under Document and Forms tab.
Before submitting an ARB contact Star Management, Sherry Danko. She will determine if you need to submit an ARB to the Board of Directors or to the ARB Subcommittee. The Board of Directors require all ARB submissions to be submitted 2 weeks prior to our monthly meeting, usually the second Tuesday of the month. The ARB Subcommittee Committee can approve color changes, perimeter fencing, installation of a culvert or driveway, and such within a few days.
While it may seem arbitrary from an individual homeowner’s standpoint, the Architectural Review Committee looks out for the entire community. Aside from stopping residents from painting pink polka dots on their houses, the committee’s job is to make sure that the size and style of the project, the type of building materials being used and the overall look of the structure adhere to the Association’s design requirements.
If I am just going to paint my house do I need to submit an ARB?
Yes, and No. It all depends on if you are repainting the exterior the same color you don’t need to submit an ARB. If you are changing the building colors or trim, then YES you will need to submit an ARB. Please note: we have streamlined the ARB process. We now have an ARB Committee that can approve color changes within a few days. If the ARB Committee has a concern about the color change then the ARB will be reviewed by the Board of Directors at the next monthly meeting.
I need to repair or replace my roof, do I need to submit an ARB?
Yes, however most roof repair or replacements can be approved by the ARB Subcommittee. The ARB Subcommittee Committee can approve color changes, perimeter fencing, installation of a culvert or driveway, and such within a few days.
I submitted an ARB and had it approved but now I want to make some changes to the design. Do I need to resubmit my ARB reflecting these changes?
Yes, plans must be sent to the architectural committee to make sure they’re in compliance with the Association’s design standards. If the committee does find any issues, they will let the homeowner know what they are and try to help come up with other options.
