ALC Standards


University Park is an established residential, gated community that is known for flourishing landscapes and high-level architectural standards.  All changes to the exterior or landscaping of a home in University Park must be approved by the Architecture and Landscape Committee (“ALC”) prior to the commencement of work.

The ALC meets weekly to review homeowner applications.  Approvals are based on the published regulations.


ALC Regulations

This comprehensive guide includes a series of architectural criteria designed to assist homeowners in understanding the requirements and recommendations of the Architecture and Landscape Committee related to improvements and changes that affect the external appearance of the home.

ALC Application

ALC applications must be submitted no later than 12:00pm on Tuesday to be considered at the subsequent Friday ALC meeting. Applications that do not meet this deadline will be reviewed at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
