The Scenic Oaks Architectural Review Committee is here to help residents through the process of executing property renovations in compliance with SOPOA guidelines. Details of the “do’s and dont’s” of property renovations, and the appropriate form are available on the Permits and Forms page.
Print and complete the form, then submit it along with a diagram of your project and a refundable builder’s bond with the amount dependent on the size of your project.
Enclose the form, diagram, and refundable bond in an envelope addressed to “SOPOA ARC”, and leave it at the Entry Station.
An member of the Committee will arrange to meet you at your property and quickly get you started with your renovation.
After the renovation is complete, remember to contact the Committee to close the project and return your bond deposit.
If you have questions, please contact the Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Scenic Oaks Property Owner’s Association (SOPOA) is managed entirely by resident volunteers. The Board strives to monitor and maintain the Bylaws and Restrictions referenced in the legal documents property owners sign when purchasing property in the neighborhood. Residents of our neighborhood have all legally agreed to these defined standards, as well as the process by which disputes can be remedied.
The SOPOA is not however an arm of law enforcement. SOPOA members rely on a shared respect for personal integrity and individual responsibility to adhere to the Bylaws and Restrictions.
The Restrictions Committee follows a legally mandated process to notify offenders and allow time to voluntarily resolve the issue. If the violation is disputed, the resident can appeal to the Board to define an acceptable resolution.
Every property owner has made a considerable investment to be a part of this neighborhood, and in doing so has agreed to the Restrictions and Bylaws which define this neighborhood.
Is it too much to ask to simply be a good neighbor?
