The Springs At Stone Oak

Architectural Review Authority (ARC) Overview

From The Architectural Review Committee Authority (ARC)


ARCThe Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for the Springs at Stone Oak contains information that all Homeowners should possess and understand. This is the Restrictive Covenants or rules that apply to all Homeowners within the Springs at Stone Oak. The intent is to ensure that the quality of our neighborhood is maintained for the present and future.

The ARC's goal is to ensure that any proposed improvements conform to the conditions and restrictions that are addressed in our Declaration and Amendments. A proposed improvement is considered to be any "change" on any Lot in the Springs at Stone Oak. These improvements can range from re-painting in a different color (changing colors), re-roofing, or adding a swimming pool, deck or patio cover, with the focus here being a change to the property versus a "simple repair".  Per the CCRs, the HOA's Architectural Review Authority has 30 days to approve the request, once it is submitted with all necessary documents/requirements.  The ARC's goal is to get the request completed as soon as possible and within one week when possible.

Each Homeowner is responsible for submitting the complete documentation (Improvement Request Form) and required plans for all proposed improvements to the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) Department of our Property Management Company Hill Country Homeowners Association Managment, who will immediately review the forms for completeness and forward to the ARC for approval/disapproval.  Please refer to your homeowner declarations for further explanation regarding our Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions - they are available on our HOA site under the Pages & Links tab.  If you have any questions about this process you can contact the the Architectural Review department at Hillcountry Homeowners at 1-800-998-6721, or you can contact the HOA Board via email at

As you can see, our neighborhood has restrictions that require all Homeowners to participate in maintaining their property to certain standards. This helps all Homeowners in ways, such as avoiding conflicts, property disclosures, and decreased values, along with having a nice neighborhood to call home. The ARC encourages improvements and needs all Homeowners to recognize that ARC approvals are needed prior to making improvements.


Thank you.
