The Hiddenbrooke Architectural Review Committee (HARC) is the entity in the CC&Rs to ensure that the goals in the Hiddenbrooke Landscape and Design Guidelines are fulfilled. The intent of these guidelines is to maintain a memorable community image with a high-quality design of homes, uniform fencing, pastoral landscaping along other complementary exterior elements. The CC&Rs give HARC the authority to approve all home designs and landscaping for new custom homes, as well as future neighborhood developments. HARC approval is also required for any improvements, changes, additions, or enhancements to the exterior of an existing home and/or yard (including back and side yards, with some exemptions). HARC reviews the proposed improvements for compliance with the Landscape and Design Guidelines which are listed below. New construction and improvements are not to begin without HARC written approval and HPOA will issue a Cease and Desist letter if notified of such construction.
HARC consists of five members and an alternate, appointed by the Board of the Hiddenbrooke Property Owners Association (HPOA). Members serve for alternating two-year terms from September 1st to August 31st.
HARC meets on the second Wednesday of every month at the Brookside Room at the Golf Club at 7:00 pm. However, Owners should check the meeting calendar for any changes.
If you are living in one of the four HOAs in the community (Fairway Villas, Reflections, Summit, or Village) you will need to submit your plans to their HOA first, and then to HARC for approval.
Here are some of the basics for working with the Hiddenbrooke Landscape and Design Guidelines as currently adopted.
