HRW staff is currently in the office and continuing as usual to operate the Association in conjunction with your Board of Directors. Due to COVID-19, all business can be conducted via email including architectural requests.
At this time, residents do not need to obtain their neighbors' signatures due to concerns over COVID. Please note, the management company will contact the affected neighbors on your behalf to inform them of the proposed request.
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
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
