Jones Creek neighbors. I would like to take a minute and review the responsibility of homeowner to fill out the proper paperwork and get approval before starting any exterior home improvement. This includes painting, fences, tree removal, and many other items. A handful of neighbors have taken these steps with their home improvements, and this diligence is much appreciated. However, a much higher percentage are performing work without prior approval, which comes at the risk of having to change scope, or even remove the improvement, if they do not meet guidelines.
A snippet of the requirements of the covenants will be provided below. Additional details can be found on page 9 of the covenants, located here http://users.neo.registeredsite.com/…/ass…/JCOACovenants.pdf
Once you determine that prior approval is required, here is how you access the application http://jcoanews.com/architectural-control.html
Here is the snippet from the covenants:
"1. No building, summer house, cabana, driveway, fence, wall., mailbox, tree house, doll house, play house, cat house, dog house, kennel, swimming pool, or other structure shall be commenced, erected or maintained, nor shall any addition to, or exterior change or alteration thereto be made, until the plans and specifications showing the nature, kind, shape, height, materials, floor plans, exterior color scheme, location and approximate square footage and the grading of the lot or area to be built upon shall have been submitted to, and approved in writing by the Architectural Control Committee, its successors and designated assigns, and a copy of plans and building specifications thereof, as finally approved, lodged
permanently with the Architectural Control Committee."
