Architectural Review Committee (ARC)

As authorized by the Covenants of Glacier View Meadows, filed with Larimer County (8 August 1992, amended) and passed by a two-thirds majority of GVM property owners, the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) was created to maintain a style and nature of building design that is architecturally harmonious with the physical character of the area, including quality of workmanship, type of materials and harmony of external design (Cov. 2.2, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.9). In June 2001 with the adoption of new By-laws, the ultimate authority of the ACC was transferred to the Glacier View Meadows Road and Recreation Board, and a new committee, known as the Architectural Review Committee (ARC), was formed to continue the following, B., Scope of Authority.

  B. Scope of Authority The Architectural Review Committee is charged with reviewing and approving/disapproving architectural plans for all structures and alterations thereto in Glacier View Meadows, including size, height, location, time for construction, exterior materials, exterior lighting, roof appurtenances, driveways, building envelopes, garages, outbuildings, gates and entries, horse stables. The ARC also has responsibility for reviewing complaints other than variances, surrounding certain other activities that affect the aesthetics of the environment surrounding said structures to include removal of trees and brush, nuisances, grading, drainage, temporary residences, home-based businesses, signs, fences and re-subdividing (Cov. 4.3, 4.6-4.10, 4.12-4.15, 4.17, 4.19, 4.22, 4.23, Suppl. Cov./1-12). Recommendations for action are made to the Glacier View Road and Recreation Board of Directors, which direct the execution of those recommendations. The Road and Recreation Board (ACC) will act upon requests for variances and the resolution of complaints.
