WHAT WE DO
The Architectural Control Committee exists to advise the Board of Directors and homeowners on all matters pertaining to the architectural improvements, repair or improvement of homeowners lots, including house paint colors, roof replacements, building of fences, decks and sheds, and landscaping and lawn improvements/maintenance. The intent behind this is to maintain the high standards of our GWP community and maximize our property values over the long term. All standards and processes for the committee are located in our bylaws, CCR's and Rules and Regulations
The Architectural Committee is always looking for volunteers to help out and spread the load. We are actively seeking a new chairman for this committee. The time commitment is minimal and the only skill required is a desire to improve our community. If you are interested, please contact us and let us know your interests.
All changes to the exterior of your home must be submitted in writing for approval. Remember this is a volunteer committee so please be patient and give us plenty of time for this review.
Painting and Roof Replacement Requirements
- Eventually it becomes time for all of us to give our homes a fresh coat of paint. Due to the huge array of paint colors and combinations for siding and trim, we no longer attempt to maintain a list of pre-approved colors and combinations. Please choose colors that are compatible with the look and feel of the neighborhood. Once you have chosen your colors, you need to paint a 2' X 2' square of each color you have chosen on the side of your house or some other area where it can be viewed by the Architectural Committee. Then you need to submit a Paint Request Form to Port Gardner Property management. This can be submitted by either mail, or email. The members of the Committee will view your samples and provide the approval to go ahead with the process. Please allow 1 to 2 weeks for this process and remember that the members of the committee are all volunteers. Again we are always looking for volunteers for this committee so please feel free to contact us if you are interested in helping out. This process is necessary even if you are painting your house the same colors. Many of the original colors may no longer be available and a sample of the intended color is necessary to determine the actual color. A paint chip is also not acceptable since a small chip is just not enough to evaluate the selected color. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
- Any roof replacements must also be approved by the Architectural Control Committee. The Board has approved specific guidelines and materials for roof replacements. See those posted here. If you plan to re-roof your home, please submit this Roofing Application Form along with a photocopy of your contractor's work order which confirms the roofing material your contractor will be using (you can black out pricing or other sensitive information you wish). Again, allow up to two weeks for review and approval of your roofing application.
