Entered on Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Pursuant to Article VI, Section 3
of the Association Covenants, the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) of the REHOA, in conjunction with the Association Board of Directors (BOD), provides the following “standards policy” for the painting of dwellings within the subdivision:
- When both homeowners agree to re-paint and/or re-stain the exterior of their common wall dwellings, they must paint or stain with the exact color as the pre-existing finish and trim. This process will not require prior approval of the ACC or BOD.
- In the event of proposed changes in color(s) of the existing exterior finish and/or trim, wherein both homeowners are in agreement to the proposed change in color(s), the new colors shall be submitted to the ACC for review and subsequent approval by the BOD prior to the beginning of work.
- If the homeowners are in agreement to change the exterior color(s), but cannot agree on the specific color(s), the homeowners shall submit the proposed color(s) to the ACC for review. In this case, the homeowners shall mutually agree to binding arbitration by the BOD, and the approval by the BOD shall be considered final. Note: Once BOD approval is obtained, the homeowners must paint both dwellings at the same time.
- In the event that only one homeowner of the shared-wall units decides to re-paint or re-stain the exterior of their individual home, the dwelling must be re-painted or re-stained in the exact color of the pre-existing finish.
- If it is the ACC’s recommendation and the subsequent decision of the BOD that a dwelling(s) is in obvious need of re-painting or re-staining, or the existing shared wall dwellings have two (2) different colors, then the following courses of action shall occur:
- A written notice shall be sent to the homeowner(s) by the REHOA BOD requesting that the dwelling(s) be re-painted and/or re-stained within a specified period of time. The owner(s) will have fourteen (14) days from the date of the notice to reply/respond to the written request.
- In the event that the written notice is not complied with in the specified period, the BOD may, at the Association’s expense, cause the dwelling(s) to be re-painted or re-stained and thereafter, a lien shall be filed against the property to recover the expenses incurred by the Association plus any related legal fees, fines, or penalties which may apply.
