Davis Lake has an Architectural Review Committee (DLARC). The DLARC provides guidelines to assist the homeowner in researching what is allowed or not allowed in Davis Lake, based on the Homeowners Covenants (Declaration of Rights, Restrictions, Affirmative Obligations and Conditions Applicable To All Property in Davis Lake) that all Davis Lake homeowners are given at the time of their house closing. The Declaration of Covenants, requires that all homeowners MUST submit for approval to the ARC ALL proposed exterior additions or alterations to their house or lot. All written homeowner requests must be on the “ARC Application for Change or Addition” (MS Word or PDF). This application is then submitted to the DLARC for review. The DLARC members will physically visit the site, and then make a decision on the requested changes. Homeowners are then notified in writing of all DLARC decisions within 45 days. For further assistance, please contact the Davis Lake ARC. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Your message will go to all of the current ARC members. Please put your neighborhood or your property address (such as "Deer Cross" or 123 Poplar Grove Dr.) in the subject line of your message to help alert the proper ARC member to respond to your message.

If you need this information, contact DLCA Club House, at 9000 Davis Lake Parkway, Charlotte NC 28269, 704-596-6958.
