Cameron Wood Teams
Volunteers...We Need Them! Please consider volunteering in Cameron Wood as some of your neighbors already do or have in the past.
Architectural Review: (ARC) Board Oversight Member is Chris Corcoran. This team uses two-person units to review homeowner requests for exterior changes, additions, renovations, reconstruction or landscaping of their property which affects the curb appeal of the neighborhood. ARC approval of all such changes is required by our Covenants within 30 days but usually takes 6-7 days. This team's goal is to complete the approvals in a timely manner while keeping changes in harmony with existing neighborhood standards. We currently approve about 95% of initial items submitted to our volunteer team members. Typically only 2 or 3 requests per year are denied and many of those denials have been resolved. Architectural forms are available on this site under Residents then Forms.
Architectural Compliance: (ACC). A team leader is needed. The Board Oversight Member is Chris Corcoran. The team periodically reviews the neighborhood for Covenant violations and communicates with Homeowners and Board of Director members to resolve issues in a neighborly manner. These team volunteers are responsible for addressing complaints and for proactively looking for unauthorized changes to properties. Especially to those changes which could negatively impact property values. This group is also responsible for identifying exterior property maintenance issues that could adversely impact Cameron Wood's curb appeal. When a violation occurs, this group notifies the homeowner, in writing, and follows a set process to make sure the problem is corrected in a timely manner. If the homeowner refuses to cooperate within this process, then the team turns the issue over to the Board of Directors, who then in turn vote to have a hearing. If, after a hearing, the homeowner still refuses to cooperate, fines are levied in accordance with the North Carolina Planned Community Act, until the problem is resolved.
