The purpose of a community association’s governing documents is to provide for the legal structure and operation of the community.
- Define the rights and obligations of both the association and its owners
- Create a binding relationship between each owner and the association
- Establish the mechanisms for governing and funding the association’s operations
- Set forth rules and standards for the:
- Protection of both owners and the community
- Enhancement of property values
- Promotion of harmonious living
If you are planning any changes to the outside of your home (including fences, sheds, etc.), the governing documents require that you submit a request to the committee for approval before starting the project. The Architectural Submittal Form below may be printed for your use. Please submit a separate form for each item (or change) that you are requesting. For example, if you are painting and want to build a fence at the same time, you’ll need to submit two forms. It is especially important to make sure you submit a complete package with all required information to receive approval. Incomplete submission packages will be returned and may delay your project.
Please mail a complete submission package to:
JCHiggins & Associates
P.O. Box 731029
Puyallup, WA 98373
If you are painting, you will need to include sample ‘paint chips’ so the committee can review the application). Major landscape changes such as removing or planting trees, or redesigning beds, installing pavers, etc. will require ACC approval.

If instructed under the section of the Submittal Form that applies to your proposed project (i.e. fence), please remember to include a sketch/drawing with measurements and submit that with your form.
Please submit a separate form for each item (or change) that you are requesting.
Each home is assigned a private gate entry access code. The Association encourages residents NOT to give out their private gate code.
You may purchase gate remotes for ease of access so that you do not have to stop and manually enter a code to gain access. The Association has gate remotes available for purchase at JCHiggins & Assocates.
Gate Entry Access:
Please complete the Gate Directory Update form to have your name and phone number added to the gate directory. This way visitors and guests may find your name in the directory, and you may grant access from your phone.
The gate does not call long distance, so you must have a local (253) area code phone number to use the gate directory.
The Board of Directors meetings are open for observation to all homeowners. Please contact the Board for the date of the next Board Meeting.
The Association Annual Membership meetings are held near the end of each year. All Homeowners are welcome to attend and observe these meetings. Official notice of the next meeting will be mailed to each homeowner at least 30 days prior to the meeting date.
