Architectural Guidelines

All property owners in Cabell's Mill are, by law, members of the Cabell's Mill Community Association (CMCA). As such, there are certain restrictions and guidelines for the use, improvement and alteration to the properties within Cabell’s Mill. By monitoring the exterior design of improvements within Cabell’s Mill and by regulating the use of properties within the community, CMCA is able to maintain a high standard of aesthetic quality, community identity, and functionality which enhances property values. The Architectural Guidelines have been established by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) and the CMCA Board of Directors for the purpose of informing all owners within Cabell’s Mill of the applicable regulations for new construction, alterations and improvements to properties within the Community. Additionally, Article V of the CMCA’s Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions states that “No building shall be erected, placed, or altered on any lot until the construction plans and specifications and a plan showing the location of the structure have been approved by the Architectural Control Committee as to the workmanship, materials, harmony of external design with existing structures, and as to the location with respect to topography and finish grade elevation.”
