Architectural Committee

What is the purpose of the Architecture Review Committee?
The primary purpose of the Charter is to protect and enhance each Owner’s financial investment in real property within Alstonvale.  To that end, the purpose of the Architecture Review Committee is to assure that any new improvement to an Alstonvale property or any modification to an existing property is consistent with the requirements of the Charter.  That being said, the architectural controls that form part of this Community Charter are intended to allow ample opportunity for individual expression through improvements to any lot while ensuring that design harmony is achieved and maintained throughout Alstonvale.

Architectural Review Committee Composition
The Committee is currently composed of the following ARA volunteers, who were appointed by the ARA Board:

  • Gilbert Vocelle (President)
  • Gaétan Houle
  • Hank Kruijt

Functions of the Architectural Review Committee
The functions of the Architectural Review Committee can be summarized as follows:

  1. Work with owners and builders to achieve the stated objective.
  2. Ensure that all plans and specifications submitted by Applicants meet the requirements of the Community Charter.
  3. Issue Alstonvale Certificates of Conformity, which, in addition to a Town of Hudson building permit, would be a prerequisite to commencing any work within the Properties.
  4. Inspect construction for compliance with the Community Charter.
  5. Investigate and render judgment on alleged violations of the Community Charter. Judgments may include the determination of appropriate and reasonable punitive measures such as assessing the extent of financial damages arising from a violation of the Community Charter.
  6. Hear appeals and take appropriate action.
  7. Make reasonable attempts to resolve cases of alleged violations through informal means.
  8. Make reasonable attempts to resolve, through informal means, conflicts between Residents in cases where an adversarial relationship has arisen between Residents over alleged violations of the Community Charter.
  9. Propose, to the Board, any necessary revisions to the architectural controls and use restrictions within the Community Charter. Such changes will normally need to be submitted by the Board for approval by the community members.
