ACC vs. Homes Maintenance vs. Grounds: BHA has three related committees, the ACC, the Grounds Committee, and the Homes Maintenance Committee. Their descriptions are listed below:
Homes Maintenance Committee: Maintaining your home in good repair is not covered by the ACC standards. The Homes Maintenance Committee is concerned with ensuring all homes are kept in good repair. It looks for painting and deterioration of siding, chimneys, and other unit structures.
Architecture Control Committee (ACC): Maintaining your home requires repairs and replacement of various parts of the unit's exterior. No structure, building, addition, deck, patio, fence, wall, enclosure, window, exterior door, or any other exterior replacements, improvements, or alterations (visible from the exterior of the unit) are to be started until an application has been submitted and approved by the Architecture Control Committee.
The mission of the ACC is to maintain, manage, and recommend changes to the Architectural Control standards as authorized by the Declaration, By-Laws, Rules and Regulations, and Architectural Control Standards. The ACC has adopted the following values to preserve and enhance our community and support our mission.
Engagement: Having two-way communication that enables homeowners and the ACC to understand circumstances, and act in the best interest of the BHA.
Education: Giving homeowners access to relevant, timely information that enables them to make informed choices for their homes.
Evaluation: Being open to and appropriately reacting to feedback on new technologies, regulations, and circumstances that may require additions, deletions, and changes to the ACC standards.
Equality: Treating all homeowners equally.
Enhancement: Promoting the increased value of all homes by sustaining an attractive community.
Exterior Aesthetic: Maintaining a uniform and attractive appearance while balancing quality upgrades with material availability and ease of maintenance.
