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.

  • Expediting Your ARB Process

    Are you planning any improvements to your home? Do you know what it takes to get the job done? Do you know if you need ARB approval for the project?

    I have many neighbors asking me, “Nick do I need approval for this or approval for that”? To find out what projects need the ARB approval you can go to the Deercreek Owner’s Association website at www.deercreekcc.comOn the right hand side of the home page, click on the ARB link which will take you to the ARB home page where you will find a link on the right hand side of the page that says “Application Form/Fees”. Clicking on that link takes you to the form you will need to complete in order to secure approval for improvements/changes.

    Some items are pre-approved (see the “Pre-Approved Designs” link on the ARB home page) but do require a $25 pre-approved submittals fee.

    The ARB would like to assist you and ensure the application process goes smoothly. In addition to ensuring compliance with DCCOA association covenants and restrictions, the ARB also wants to ensure that you are getting the best possible results from your project as contractors can sometimes sell you jobs but do not understand the Deercreek HOA’s requirements. Delays in a project may occur if a homeowner doesn’t provide the ARB the necessary information/form to evaluate and approve a project—which is the last thing the ARB wants to happen!

    So how do you make sure that your project goes smoothly through the application process? The best way is to make sure that the checklist attachments are complete. These are listed at the bottom of the application.

    What things can delay your application? I am glad that you asked! The following list of items have contributed to delayed approval most recently:

    • Poor photographs of the area that is in need of improving.
    • Not including the dimensioned, to-scale drawings.
    • Not including floor plans, elevation, and sectioned drawings for additions.
    • For projects requiring roof additions, not providing drawings that clearly show how the addition will attach to the existing home.
    • Landscape plans without quantity, gallon size, and species of shrubs/trees (if applicable).
    • For tree removal-not including a gallon size and species of the replacement tree.
    • Not including a proper survey of the property.
    • Not including the checks required with the application.
    • Not including good samples or pictures of materials such as paint, pavers, etc. to be applied to the project.

    The list can go on but you get the point. The ARB would rather have all of the pertinent information for projects so that you can proceed promptly. And it also helps the ARB since we won't have to spend additional time addressing your project. Besides, my wife waits on me for dinner and you don’t want to keep Millie waiting☺
