Commitees :: The Architectural Control Committee
Exterior improvements to your property must be approved by the Architectural Control Committee.
Exterior improvements include re-roofing, room additions, exterior paint colors or siding, pool additions, etc. If you are planning to paint the exterior of your house, a sample of the color must be submitted for approval to the Architectural Control Committee at least forty-five (45) days prior to painting. All requests must be in writing. Please do not telephone the office for approval. After the Architectural Control Committee reviews the request, the office will mail you the approval or deniel letter. A form for submittals can be picked up from the MPCA Office, or printed from the website (under forms & documents link).

Bringing color to the exterior of your house can have a tremendous effect on your home's value and curb appeal.
Things to keep in mind:
- Coordinate paint colors with existing features of you home such as your roof and any brick or stone accents you may have.
- Look for colors that harmonize with your surrounding landscape and neighborhood. Or use any of our color palette collections to find combinations appropriate for the architecture of you home.
- Add splashes of color by highlighting details such as doors, shutters, and architectural elements. Keep in mind light colors can add size, while dark color can inject drama.
