 Architecture Review Committee (ARC)

The Random Hills Community Association (RHCA) exists in order to provide for the preservation and enhancement of the property values, amenities, and opportunities in the community contributing to the personal and general health, safety, and welfare of residents and for the maintenance of the land and improvements. Although each townhouse lot is privately owned and the common areas are for the use of all community members, there are certain restrictions and guidelines for the use, improvement and alteration of the properties within Random Hills.

The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) works under the direction of the Board to ensure that the original plan for the community is preserved. By monitoring the exterior design and alterations to the properties within Random Hills, the Association is able to maintain a high standard of aesthetic quality, community identity and functional cohesiveness that enhance property values and promotes a harmonious community. If you were not given a copy of the Architectural Guidelines when you purchased your home, please request a copy from Service First Management Consultants (SFMC).

Under the Covenants and Restrictions which govern use and alterations of the townhomes, no improvement, alterations, repairs, change of paint colors, change in grade or other work which in any way alters the exterior of any property or common area may be made or done without the prior written approval of the ARC. Additionally, no building, fence, landscaping may be commenced, erected, maintained, improved or altered without prior written approval of the ARC, except where specified in the written covenants.

Any questions or concerns you have about the Architectural Guidelines or the Application for Exterior Modification process may be directed to the ARC, SFMC, or the Random Hills Board of Directors. Please note that all ARC applications are due by the first day of the month in order to be reviewed by the ARC that month.


Approved Exterior Paint Colors

Your Trim and Garage paint colors are based on your builder (Winchester or Equity) and can be determined by the street where you live and are shown in the table below

 Â
Equity Homes
Duron Wheat
 Winchester Homes
Duron Amber White
  • Appleby Way
  • Avondale Drive
  • Bannockburn Court
  • Cornwall Court
  • Glostonbury Way
  • Laurel Lake Square
  • Shaughnessy Court
  • Stonehenge Way
  
  • Heatherstone Court
  • Kentmere Square
  • Kentshire Way
  • Rothbury Square
  • Sherwood Forest Way
  • Werthers Court

Door colors vary but you can find the correct color on a exterior paint chart from Duron called Curb Appeal. Using the Curb Appeal paint chart, simply match to your door. Door colors cannot be changed without ARC approval.

Any resident who installs a storm door on either their front or rear door needs to remember that storm doors must be full view and that they must be painted to match either the exterior trim or the door/shuttle color. An ARC application form is strongly suggested.

While the specific colors listed above are manufactured by Duron, Random Hills residents are not required to use Duron brand paint. Any reputable paint brand can be matched to Duron colors. Residents who do not use matching colors will receive notice from the ARC and be required to repaint. We hope this information will prevent anyone from having to repaint.

Approved Deck Sealers

Decks and fences need to be periodically cleaned and a protective finish applied. Any sealer used on the decks and fences must be a neutral, "natural" color.
In order to assist you in selecting a sealer, the Board of Directors has approved, effective 3/1/06, a list of sealers that may be used in Random Hills. These sealers are typically available at Lowe′s, Home Depot and similar stores.

The annual assessment is divided into 12 monthly payments. The monthly assessment is due on the first day of the month and is considered late after the 10th of the month. If the payment is received after the 10th of the month, the account is charged a $25.00 late fee.

To avoid late fees, please consider utilizing the automatic payment service (ACH Debit) for making regular monthly payments. This eliminates the need to write a check, saves you time and prevents the assessment of late fees.

 Snow Removal

Snow removal in the private streets and parking areas is the responsibility of the Association and is normally done with there is an accumulation of two or more inches of snow. Sanding and de-icing is done as necessary.

Snow removal on sidewalks is not currently included in the assessment and owners are requested to clear main walks between their property lines.

Snow removal and de-icing of your sidewalk is a homeowner responsibility. We suggest not using rock salt, table salt or any product containing sodium on your walks or drives, as this will harm concrete, turf and shrubbery.

The tennis court is located in the open space between Werthers Court, Sherwood Forest Court, Kentshire Way and Heatherstone Court. This is in the section closest to the Candlewood Suites Hotel.

Our tennis court has been newly re-surfaced! To better protect the association's investment, a new lock has been put on the gate to control access. Non-duplicative keys are available at a cost of $20 and are available from Board members Charlie Viars. The homeowner possessing a key is asked to safeguard it and not allow it to be shared within the community. The key will be returned to the RHCA upon sale or rental of their property or when the homeowner moves out of the community.
