The Architectural Review Committee exists so that Lochmere can remain a special place to live. Anyone wishing to make external changes to their property must meet the association requirements for modifications and submit an application to committee and receive their approval before initiating work.  The Architectural Committee is comprised of 3 Lochmere residents.  Here's how it all works:

1.  Read the Lochmere Architectural Standards and Specifications (LASS).  The Request Form is contained within the LASS.

The LASS, as well as other legally binding documents, are provided to homeowners prior to closing on a house.  Please read the guidelines and application requirements carefully before submitting your application.

2.  Submit an Application

Submit your application, along with any other required documentation to the management company.  Please allow the allotted time period for your application to be reviewed (30 days).  Incomplete information only delays your project. The application form is contained within the LASS document.  Requests may be dropped off to the Lochmere office at 502 Lochmere Dr. or emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots.

3.  AC Review

The AC will review your application and perform any site inspections outlined in the association documents.  You will be contacted if the AC has questions or if there are problems with your request.  Note - the AC and Board enforce community guidelines but it is up to you to make sure you meet local permit requirements.  (Town of Cary, etc.)

4.  Approval or Rejection

You will be notified of the approval or rejection of your request.  If you have questions about the disposition, please contact the HRW Lochmere Office This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
