FMEHA COMMITTEES
ACC Committee
Chris Flynn, Chair
acc@fmeha.org
 
One of the responsibilities of the Fox Mill Estates Homes Association is the preservation of the appearance of the neighborhood. To this end, the Governing Documents enumerate Protective Covenants and Restrictions, or, “Covenants” for short. The Covenants require that the Board of Directors or an architectural committee appointed by the Board must approve modifications to a lot or to a home, prior to construction.
 
The Architectural Control Committee’s purpose is to ensure that intended exterior improvements meet community's standards as set forth in the Governing Documents, thus avoiding the problems that arise from the construction of improvements and the use of colors or styles that conflict with others in your neighborhood. The ACC exists to promote qualities in the neighborhood that bring value to the community by promoting the attractiveness and functional utility of Fox Mill Estates as a place to live.
