ARC – Architectural Control Committee

The Architectural Control Committee (ARC) is set up and appointed by the HOA Board to oversee and approve the applications from residents who care to make changes to their homes.

If you would like to volunteer for the Architectural Control Committee, please send us an email.

Updating your home?

Making changes to your home is a great way to keep up with maintenance as well as personalize the curb appeal to your home. To ensure that you are compliant with our covenants and by-laws you must complete the following process. Failure to follow this process may result in negative action against you to restore your lot to the previous condition all at the homeowner’s expense. So plan wisely and leave yourself plenty of time to get your project approved.

To submit your application for modification of your home:

  • Download the appropriate Modification Request Form and fill out the scope of the work
  • Attach an additional letter if needed, the more information about the project, the quicker we can respond.
  • Include a copy of your plat (if applicable for any structure, additions, hardscapes or fences) with word to be done overlaid upon it.
  • Include the contractor’s estimate and any drawings
  • Pictures if available (swing sets etc)
  • Physical paint Swatches and Paint colors, as well as the manufacturer name and version, are required.

Once your application has been received you will receive a response within 30 days (of that receipt) informing you of the status of your application.

    • Notes:
      • Roofs and Decks: Even if you’re are replacing your roof with like colors or re-building your deck to the original specs,  you must submit a form for our records (since we won’t know you’re replacing like with like).

Tree removal

Some trees require approval from the city before the Architectural committee can approve.


A three-color paint scheme is preferred (the trim and garage door being the same color, shutters and front door being the same color), but the ACC will consider two-color schemes. Earth tone paint schemes and current trends may vary, so consult some local neighborhoods for ideas. The ARC may request additional information as necessary. Not all paint schemes will be acceptable.

Exterior brick on homes may now be painted pursuant to the following terms and conditions:


Brookshire has pre-approved these vendors for brick painting (more to be added in the future).

If you opt to use another vendor, they must have expertise in brick painting. All contractors must be approved by the Architectural committee.


Brookshire has pre-approved these products for brick painting (more to be added in the future).

If regular exterior paint is used, it may create a layer over the brick and will eventually peel or crack.  When using a product such as Romabio, the paint seeps into the brick and becomes part of the brick where it naturally ages and continues to look nice.  This product comes with a 20 year manufacturer warranty.  Other comparable products are on the market, and we will update approvals periodically.

If you opt to use another product, it must be formulated specifically for use with brick. All other product, washes and colors must be approved by the Architectural committee.
