|CCRE Article V, Section 5.2.(b)(vii)
|Our policy is to ensure all new homes constructed and additions/ modifications to existing homes are in accordance with Architectural Review Board (ARB) Guidelines and completed per ARB approved plans. The ARB will inspect all construction projects at completion to ensure that work has been accomplished per the ARB approved plan.
Fees and Deposits are established by the Board of Directors annually based on project type (e.g., new constructions, additions, pools, landscaping changes, etc.).

Note: Separate checks, made payable to Queens Harbour Yacht and Club Owners Association are required for the review fee, the Construction Impact Fee (CIF) and deposit.
|Upon ARB approval, an ARB permit is issued requiring completion of the project within a specified period (independent of regulatory permit requirements [e.g., city building permits, St. Johns River Water Management District permits, etc.]) as follows…
1. New Home Construction – 12 months
2. Major Projects (Additions, Pools / Enclosures) – 6 months
3. Minor Projects (Landscaping / Fencing / Pavers / etc.) – up to 6 months
A project is initiated once construction begins. If the permit expires and construction on an approved project has not been initiated, the project will be deemed to be cancelled and refunds processed accordingly. Re-initiation of cancelled project will require a new application and permit (with associated fees and deposits).
A permit may be extended by the ARB for up to 6 months if the project has been initiated and construction is in progress at the time the request for extension is made. In extraordinary circumstances, a second extension of 6 months may be approved by the ARB if the construction is in progress at the time the second extension is requested. It is the responsibility of the property owner to request an extension prior to permit expiration.
|At project completion, it is the responsibility of the builder/property owner to notify the ARB Coordinator in order for inspections to be scheduled.
Final ARB inspections are scheduled to coincide with monthly ARB meetings; inspections are conducted the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.
