  • EXTENT OF ARCHITECTURAL COMMITTEE REVIEW

    Coto de Caza Community Association - The Village

    1

    Section I: Extent of Architectural Control Committee Review:

    A. Association Responsibilities: One of the more important functions of Coto de Caza Community Association ("The Village") is enhancing the desirability and attractiveness of

    living in the community by preserving the architectural character of the Community. The

    Association is granted the power to administer and enforce architectural controls within the

    Community by Article VI of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions and

    Reservation of Easements for The Village (the "Declaration"), which recorded on February 4,

    1970 in Book 9209, pages 277 through 291 in the Official Records of Orange County,

    California, as amended from time to time.

    The Association administers and enforces all architectural guidelines through the Architectural

    Control Committee as provided in Article VI of the Declaration. The Architectural Control

    Committee has the authority to (1) review and approve all plans and specifications for

    Improvements as described in Section VI of the Declaration; (2) establish and administer

    general architectural guidelines; and (3) assess fees, as set by the Board of Directors, for review

    and approval of proposed construction plans. The Association Board of Directors and

    Architectural Control Committee by majority vote have the sole authority to approve, approve

    with conditions or disapprove Applications. Board members and Committee members acting

    without majority vote, Community Management and agents of the Association have no

    authority to approve, approve with conditions or deny Applications.

    B. Purpose of these Architectural Guidelines: The purpose of the Architectural

    Guidelines/Rules is to preserve the architectural character of The Village. The Guidelines are

    intended to provide design and implementation criteria for use by the Architectural Control

    Committee, residents and their consultants in their review of architectural, landscaping or other

    Improvements subject to the Architectural Control Committee’s approval to ensure

    construction of Improvements have a high quality of appearance and are compatible in

    character and form with the community.

    C. Enforcement and Violations: No construction of, or modification to, exterior Improvements

    may be commenced without obtaining approval from the Association or the Architectural

    Control Committee in accordance with these Guidelines. Failure to obtain such approval may

    constitute a violation of the Declaration and could result in the Association requiring a

    modification or removal of the work (regardless of whether it has been completed) at the

    expense of the Owner. Failure by the Owner to perform such modification or removal when

    requested by the Association may subject the Owner to legal action by the Association in order

    to compel the Owner’s compliance. All residents have the right and the responsibility to bring

    to the attention of the Architectural Control Committee any violations of any provision or

    standard, which the Board of Directors or the Architectural Control Committee has adopted. An

    approved Application and Exhibits along with conditions of approval constitute the agreement

    between the Applicant and the Association. Any change to the design or specifications must be

    submitted and approved by the Architectural Control Committee prior to any form of work or

    construction.

    D. Amendments to Guidelines: These Guidelines, along with the provisions set forth in the

    Declaration, form the basis for evaluation of plans and specifications for new construction
