Architectural Control Committee

Killearn Homes Association ACC

     The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is responsible with regulating the aesthetic environment and standards within Killearn Estates by ensuring compliance with the existing covenants and any other standards deemed applicable by the committee. The covenants provide that the committee has the absolute and exclusive right to refuse to approve any submission, which in its opinion, is not suitable or desirable for any reasons of pure aesthetics, inconsistency with the overall harmony of the neighborhood or inconsistency with future development.

     The purpose of architectural review is to keep the community attractive for the enjoyment of residents and for the protection of property and property values. Therefore, no property, building, structure, fence, dock or other improvement may be made, altered, structurally modified, installed, constructed, or erected without the prior consent of the committee.

     The Architectural Control Committee meets other every Wednesday morning at 10:00 am, in the Killearn Homes Association conference room.

     Submit your plans in writing to the office no later than 12 PM on the Friday before the meeting. Please browse the list below to see what documents should be included in your application. The more information you can supply the more likely the committee will be able to make an immediate determination. If your plans are approved, you will receive written notice via email. No work shall be commenced until you have that written approval. If the committee cannot make a determination and needs more information, you will be informed in writing of the additional information being requested.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the compliance coordinator, Caleb Martinez, at 850-893-3468 or via email at compliancecoordinator@killearn.org.

Completed ACC applications can be dropped off at 2705 Killarney Way, Tallahassee, FL 32309. Alternatively, you can email the completed packet to compliancecoordinator@killearn.org
