ARB Approval Process

The EMHA Covenants and Bylaws task the Architectural Review Board (ARB) with overseeing all exterior construction within EMHA.  By coordinating with property owners their planned projects, the ARB clarifies for owners the application of EMHA architectural and construction guidelines and reduces confusion as to their application.   

To assist homeowners, this web page describes the processes used in submitting a complete request to the ARB.   

The information provided below is designed to assist homeowners in understanding the EMHA architectural and construction guidelines and the ARB project approval processes.  

Questions may be directed through the following channels. 

Below are the processes and steps. 

All exterior construction projects require ARB approval.  The Architectural Guidelines provide guidance for developing architectural and site plans.   The ARB Approval Request Form initiates the ARB review process.

        4. How long does the ARB review take

Once a request is successfully submitted, within 3 to 10 business days an ARB member will contact the project contact person as was identified in the ARB Approval Request Form

If the homeowner requests an exploratory site visit, an ARB member will schedule that site visit with the homeowner.

Within 30 days of receiving the approval request and all of the required project documentation, the ARB will render a written decision.   A site visit to review the project may be required prior to the final decision.
