There are many references in the Long Hollow Estates covenants
where the approval of the Architectural Committee is required. The Architectural Committee has the right to consider all of the plans and specifications for an improvement or proposal in question and all other facts, which, in its sole discretion, are relevant.
Prior to the commencement of any construction of any improvement on the property or any portion of it, the plans and specifications need to be submitted to the Architectural Committee, and construction should not commence until the Architectural Committee has approved the plans and specifications in writing.
The Architectural Committee will timely review the plans and specifications submitted for its approval and perform other duties assigned to it, including occasional inspection of construction in progress to assure its conformance with plans and specifications approved by the Architectural Committee. The Architectural Committee will be required to take pictures of the road in front of and around the site both before and after the construction of the home. The Architectural Committee shall review plans and specifications submitted for its review and such other information, as it deems proper, including information it may require relating to the question whether any proposed improvement upon a Lot would unreasonably obstruct the view from other portions of the property. If the Architectural Committee is in need of any information or document deemed necessary, it may postpone review of any plans and specifications submitted for approval. The Architectural Committee will communicate directly back to the homeowner with its decision.
Please note that no Improvement shall be allowed upon any lot which would unreasonably obstruct the view from any other portion of the property and no improvement shall be allowed on any lot which is of such size or architectural design or involves the use of such landscaping, color schemes, exterior finishes and materials and similar features as to be incompatible with residential development in the community.
The Architectural Committee shall have the authority to disapprove any proposed improvement based upon the covenant restrictions and the decision of the Architectural Committee shall be final and binding. The Architectural Committee will not be responsible for reviewing any proposed improvement, and its approval of any plans or specifications does not guarantee structural safety, engineering soundness, or conformance with building or other codes, such as Jonestown ordinances
