INTRODUCTION TO ARCHITECTURE CONTROL 

 
The Grand Harbor Property Owners Association (GHPOA), through its Board of Directors (BoD), utilizes Committees to perform assigned duties directed toward the betterment of the Community. In that context, the "Architectural Control Committee" (ACC), perhaps the oldest and most important POA committee, is chartered to oversee all architectural improvements on any of the one thousand and twelve (1012) properties within Grand Harbor/ Harbor Side Subdivision boundaries. The ACC performs its duties and responsibilites as put forth in the official "Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions of Grand Harbor." 

The conducting of ACC business is defined and organized: a properly submitted, property owner-originated Application for any Improvement is promptly reviewed and accepted or rejected by the Committee. Timely written notification back to the applicants, on the status of their imprevement requests, is an essential attribute of the well-functioning committee. More detailed ACC process steps are in the Application itself or in the ACC Policy and Procedue document. 
 

TYPES OF IMPROVEMENTS

The ACC oversees three major categories of improvements, involving either new construction or rehabilitation of existing property owners' assets:

New Home Construction Application (NH)- a completed application Form is necessary for all aspects of a home's construction and structure

Boat Docks, Boat Slip Cover & Bulkhead Construction Application (BD&BH)- a Form that addresses waterfront features and structures, including canopy structure

"Other Improvement" Application (OI)- a Form required for all owner asset improvements not in the NH or BD&BH categories
 

ACC FORMS AVAILABLE FOR APPLICANT DOWNLOADING


Forms for making a formal application, seeking approval to implement one of the three "Types of Improvements" noted before are available for download. Also, the Applicant will, on occasion, need ACC Process- Assisting forms and support documents. They also are available here.
