Review and Change Design Guidelines
We the members of the POA at Mystic Shores request that the design guidelines otherwise known as the architectural design guidelines be reviewed and changed in accordance with the will of the POA members. Additionally, it is requested that any future changes to these guidelines require an approval of at least 51% of the current POA membership. Specifically, we ask that the following be changed in the design guidelines(changes in italics):
3.09 Final Approval or Denial -Upon completion of the review of the submitted application and plans the ACC will issue an approval or denial letter. The denial letter will clearly state why the application is denied and what section of the DCCR's the denial stems from along with 3 recommendations on how to potentially redo the application such that it would be approved.
6.07 Home Orientation on Lot Mystic Shores is a custom home community. The ACC recognizes that owners may want to place their homes on their lots to take advantage of a certain view, for cost savings or for other reasons. When reviewing submitted plans, if a home is oriented so that it is not parallel or (80%) parallel to the street, the ACC will consider potential adverse effects on adjacent and neighboring homes and lots.
6.08 Masonry: The Covenants require homes and garages in Mystic Shores be constructed with a specified percentage of masonry.
7.01 Outbuildings: Outbuildings should be architecturally compatible with the home, and similar in color. If the home is already built with a 2 car garage then there shall be no requirements for masonry. If there is no home built then if plans are submitted with a two car garage attached or detached with the required masonry then the other outbuildings shall not require masonry. Only the garage of a home is required to meet the masonry requirements in accordance with the DCCR's.
7.09 Energy Generation Systems
All solar panels are acceptable. For ground-mounted systems, the solar panel array and energy storage unit must be placed at the rear of the home, within the lot setback lines,and in an inconspicuous location. The ACC may require ground-mounted solar panels to be in a fenced yard, unless screened in a manner acceptable to the ACC.The ACC generally will accept screening using the same criteria as for propane tanks, as applicable to the Unit where the system is located(see Section 10.03 below).Documentation from the utility company, if applicable,to certify that all specifications required to tie-in to the local utility system have been or will be met shall be supplied to the ACC prior to commencement of construction. The ACC will consider the requirements of Texas Property Code Section 202.010 when evaluating and approving installation of solar panels.See also Appendix I hereto.
