Mission Statement

The mission of the Architectural Review Board (ARB) is to protect the value of the property and desirability of Deercreek Country Club by maintaining tasteful and aesthetically pleasing architectural and landscape designs that are in harmony with their surroundings and consistent in overall quality, while allowing for each owner’s individual taste.

Every person who is an Owner agrees, by reason of taking title to property within Deercreek, to all the terms and provisions of the Declaration pertaining to Architectural Control and shall be entitled to its benefits and subject to its burdens.

The ARB endeavors to protect each owner’s investment in Deercreek Country Club by striving to limit the erosion of architectural integrity, by restricting the cluttering of the neighborhood aesthetic character, and by promoting good design.

The ARB is a permanent functioning authority established in accordance with the Declaration. It meets regularly to review, approve, modify or reject proposed designs and applications for alterations, additions and other improvements to lots and homes.


Q. I have an old, cracked driveway and want to install pavers. How do I submit?
A. You need to include the following along with your application:

  • Pictures of your current driveway and home.
  • Copy of your property showing the location of the driveway.
  • Brochure showing proposed paver style, pattern and color.
  • $150 review fee and $500 performance  deposit.under two separate checks in favor of Deercreek Country Club Owners Association, Inc.

Q. Why do I pay a deposit and is it cashed?
A. The deposit is a “performance deposit” that is held in a non-interest bearing account until the improvements are complete. The ARB performs a final inspection and if the project is in substantial compliance with the approved plan and there are no damages to common property, a refund will be sent within 30 days.

Q. I'm planning to have my roof replaced. Is there a process to follow before re-roofing a home in Deercreek?

A. If you are using asphalt (architectural) shingles in the brown, gray or black color family, (pre-approved colors) all you need do is fill out an application form and provide the shingle specifications, color name and roofing company. If you are using a different material or color you need to submit a complete application, including pictures of your home, manufacturer's product literature, color sample, review fee and deposit.

Q. Does an applicant have to be a Deercreek resident or can a potential Buyer make a formal application?

A. A potential buyer may make a formal application as long as they comply with all of the submittal requirements.

Q. Am I required to have "mulch" in my landscape beds?

A. No, you may also use rubber mulch in earth tone colors, but not green or blue. You may also use ½ " to 1 ½" rock in grays, tans and/or browns. Just remember: White rock is NOT allowed.

Q. I've has problems with my sod and want to replace it. I now have St. Augustine. If I replace it with St. Augustine do I need approval? What if I decide to install a different type of grass?

A. You do not need approval to install either St. Augustine or Zoysia sod. If you are planning on another type of sod, you will need to submit.

Q. When, what time and where does the ARB meet?

A. The ARB meets on the first Thursday of the month at the Club at 7:00 PM

Q. When should I submit my request to the ARB – Can I just attend the meeting?

A. Requests to be considered by the ARB should be sent to the  offices to arrive by the Thursday (one week in advance) before the meeting. Packages must be complete to be placed on the agenda. Anyone may attend the meeting and will have 3 minutes to express any questions or concerns they may have. However, you may not present a request for approval at the meeting as the deadline has already passed.



ARB News

  • The ARB is here for you

    The Architectural Review Board (ARB) is assigned the responsibility of maintaining the high standards of the original development and to keep our community consistent with other first class communities in the Jacksonville area. This is a tough job. We know that our homeowners want the best for our community, in addition to having their properties valued as high as possible.

    As a DCCOA Board member and liaison to the ARB, I have a unique view of the ARB and the valuable service they provide for the Deercreek Country Club Owners Association. 

    It is frustrating to see the homeowner come to the ARB with a project, expecting that project to commence as soon as possible only to find out that they’re missing information required for the approval. No one on the ARB wants to delay a homeowner’s process when the homeowner wants to improve his or her property. I am writing this with hope that we can assist you in speeding up the approval process.

    The covenants and restrictions provide details of what is permitted and what is not. You should refer to them before initiating a project. Here is an excerpt from the covenants and restrictions as it pertains to the ARB approval process:

    “(ii) To require submission to the ARB of two (2) complete sets of preliminary and final plans and specifications as hereinafter defined for any improvement or structure of any kind, to be constructed by any person or entity other than the Declarant, including, without limitation, any building, dwelling, fence, wall, sign, site paving, grading, parking and building additions, alterations, screen enclosure, sewer, drain, disposal system, decorative building, landscaping, landscape device or object, exterior lighting scheme or other improvement described in Section 1 (“Proposed Improvement”) the construction or placement of which is proposed upon any Lot or Property. The ARB may also require submission of samples of building materials and colors proposed for use in the Proposed Improvement and may require such additional information as reasonably may be necessary for the ARB to completely evaluate the Proposed Improvement in accordance with the Declaration and the Architectural Planning Criteria.”

    Above and beyond these, the ARB has published Policy Positions, Pre-approvals, Submittal Requirements lists, and have provided a convenient Submittal Application Form all online at: All residents are encouraged to look at these documents to see how to expedite their project approvals and to do their part to maintain the high standards that our community seeks to retain.

    That sums it up. In addition to that information, it is important to know that you should submit your application at least one week before the ARB meeting, along with checks for the fees and deposits. Many times, we find that homeowners know to provide proper surveys, complete documentation from the contractor, clear photographs, and for instance in the case of trees, the clear plan for replacement trees.

     The application forms and fees are on the website. When items are in question, please contact the Associa/CMC for clarification.
