Architectural Covenant Committee (ACC)*

The Charter (Lone Tree Filing 1) ACC was formed to ensure that changes made to the exterior of properties, and maintenance of properties, within The Charter adhere to the covenants for Lone Tree Filing 1. This is not strictly making decisions and assessing compliance based on the details and limitations in the original document; it also involves interpreting the covenants for intent. To this end, guidelines are developed and will be posted here, from time to time, to explain what may or may not be permitted relative to property changes and use. Maintaining / improving the value and aesthetics of properties is of utmost importance.

In addition to reviewing requests for property changes, the ACC will also monitor the exterior “condition” of properties, notifying owners/residents if maintenance, such as painting or weed control, is necessary.

The ACC is made up of a minimum of three positions.

ACC meetings are scheduled once a month, but may take place more or less frequently as activities warrant. Please check with any ACC member for current schedule and meeting location.
