Building & Improvements
The Architectural Review Board (ARB)
must approve any exterior improvements to your home or property before
work may be started. In addition, most improvements may require a
permit from the Horry County Department of Building Inspections before work can
be started. It is the responsibility of each owner to submit plans for
any improvement to the ARB for review and approval. Plans must be
approved in writing by the ARB prior to commencing construction.
"Improvement" is defined as any addition
or change to the existing property. Everything is covered from home
additions, to sidewalks, replacement or treatment of fences,
landscaping, lawn sculptures, pool, patios, decks, flagpoles, basketball
goals, athletic equipment, radio/TV antennae, satellite dishes, backyard
sheds, gazebos, playscapes, swing sets, exterior colors to home,
changing of windows, etc. In some cases it will also require a
county permit, inspection and Certificate of Occupancy from the county.
For improvements, please submit (1) a
copy of the official site plan (no hand-drawn or computerized replicas)
of your property showing the exact location of the improvement that is
being submitted. Please check your closing papers for the survey (showing the Lot with easements, setbacks and
a footprint of the home, (2) list of materials, colors, screening, etc.
along with the (3) Improvement Request Form included in this web site.
Additional copies of the form may be obtained from the Association
office or downloaded from this web site on the FORMS PAGE.

Barking Dogs and Other Noise
If your neighbor’s dog is barking and
disturbing you on a regular basis, or if there are any other “nuisance”
type problems with a neighbor, please follow these procedures for the
most expedient resolution:
1. Contact the HOA Office to file a complaint. A letter will be sent to
the offending owner asking them to be courteous to their neighbors and
to resolve the issue at once in an effort to promote harmony in the
community (you will remain anonymous).
2. You, as the Complainant, can call and register a complaint so that a
file can be opened at the police department. Make sure to get a
complaint/report number from the operator when you call.
3. Call the police department a few days later and request the status of
the complaint/report number you were given above. Please note that it
may take up to a week to 10 days to investigate the complaint.
4. If necessary, the Complainant can go down to Municipal Court and
swear out a complaint using the complaint/report number given. At this
point, your anonymity can no longer be preserved. The Municipal Court
will serve the Defendant with a court date. Both the Defendant and
Complainant must appear in court. Multiple Complainants will carry more
weight in court (if more than one neighbor is affected).
The Complainant cannot be the HOA, it must be the party
being affected. Furthermore, the complaining party has the duty of
“proving the preponderance of the evidence.” In other words, you must
prove that the dog(s), or other nuisances, are obstructing your property
owner’s right to quiet and peaceful enjoyment of your own
