Section 1. Enforcement of Architectural Standards.

The Board shall have the authority and standing, on behalf of the Association, to enforce in courts of competent jurisdiction decisions of the committees established in Sections 2 and 3 of this Article VIII.

No construction, which term shall include within its definition, staking, clearing, excavation, grading, and other site work, no exterior alteration or modification of existing improvements, and no plantings or removal of plants, trees, or shrubs shall take place except in strict compliance with this Article until the requirements of the Board of ARC have been fully met, and until the approval of the appropriate entities has been obtained.

All structures constructed on any portion of the Properties shall be designed by and built in accordance with the plans and specifications of a licensed architect or other person found to be qualified by the Board or the ARC.


Section 2. Architectural Review Committee.

The Board may establish an Architectural Review Committee ("ARC") which shall have exclusive jurisdiction over all construction on any portion of the Properties and whose duties, powers and responsibilities shall be as follows:

A. The ARC shall consist of three (3) or more persons designated by the Board.

B. The ARC shall have the right of specific approval or veto of all architectural, engineering, platting, planning and landscaping aspects of any improvement or development of individual units or buildings as well as the general plan for development of any individual lot or subdivision, tract or parcel of land within the Properties. All construction and development within the Properties is subject to local governmental control; however, the ARC may, in its sole discretion, impose standards of architectural and landscaping design, building setback lines or the general plan for development, which standards are greater or more stringent than standards prescribed in applicable building, zoning, planning or other local governmental codes.

C. No building, sign, outside lighting, fence, hedge, wall, walk, dock or other structure or planting shall be constructed, erected, or planted until the plans and specifications showing the nature, kind, shape, height, materials, floor plans, color scheme and the location of same shall have been submitted to and approved in writing by the ARC. Refusal of approval of plans, specifications or location may be based upon any grounds, including purely aesthetic considerations, which the ARC, in its sole and uncontrolled discretion, deems sufficient.

D. All plans for the construction of any improvements within the Properties shall contain a drainage plan which shall be consistent with the master drainage plan for Waterford Lakes.

E. As part of the application process, two (2) complete sets of plans and specifications prepared by an architect or other person found to be qualified by the ARC shall be submitted for approval by written application on such form as may be provided or required by the ARC. In the event the information submitted to the ARC is, in its opinion, incomplete or insufficient in any manner, it may request and require the submission of additional or supplemental information.

F. The ARC shall have the right to refuse to approve any plans and specifications which are not suitable or desirable, in its sole discretion, for aesthetic or any other reasons, provided such approval is not unreasonably withheld. In approving or disapproving such plans and applications, the ARC shall consider the suitability of the proposed building, improvements, structure or landscaping and materials of which the same are to be built, the site upon which it is proposed to,be erected, the harmony thereof with the surrounding area and the effect thereof on adjacent or neighboring property.


G. Unless specifically excepted by the ARC, all improvements for which approval of the ARC is required under this Declaration shall be completed within a reasonable time from the date of commencement of said improvements or within the time set by the ARC in the event that the approval is so conditioned.

H. The ARC shall in all cases have the right to determine and designate building set back lines necessary to conform to the general plan of Waterford Lakes, in order to preserve the integrity of the Properties and the Master
Plan. In this respect the ARC's judgment and determination shall be final and binding.

I. In the event the ARC shall fail to specifically approve or disapprove the plans and specifications submitted in final and complete form, within thirty (30) days after written request for final approval or disapproval such plan and specification shall be deemed approved.

J. There is specifically reserved unto the ARC, the right of entry and inspection upon any Unit or Lot for the purpose of determination by the ARC whether there exists any construction of any improvement which violates the terms of any approval by the ARC or the terms of this Declaration or of any other covenants, conditions and restrictions to which its deed or other instrument of conveyance makes reference. The ARC is specifically empowered to enforce the provisions of this Declaration by any legal or equitable remedy, and in the event it becomes necessary to resort to litigation to determine the propriety of any constructed improvement, or to remove any unapproved improvements, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recovery of all court costs, expenses and reasonable attorney's fees in connection therewith. The Association shall indemnify and hold harmless the ARC from all costs, expenses and liabilities including attorney's fees incurred by virtue of any member of the ARC'S service as a member of the ARC.

K. The ARC may delegate any portion or all of its powers reserved hereunder to a Neighborhood Association that enacts and enforces architectural control standards as stringent as set forth herein. Such delegation may thereafter be cancelled at any time for any reason.

L. A majority of the ARC may take any action of the committee and may designate a representative to act for it. In the event of death, disability or resignation of any member of the ARC, the Board shall designate a successor.

M. The ARC may adopt such further rules and regulations as it deems necessary to carry out its functions and purposes hereunder, provided all such rules and regulations shall be filed with and made a part of this Association's minutes.

N. The ARC may impose reasonable fees and charges upon Owners to enable it to carry out its functions.

0. In each instance where a structure has been erected, or the construction thereof is substantially advanced, in such manner that the same violates the restrictions contained in this Declaration or any other covenants which the ARC has the power to enforce, or in such manner that the same encroaches on any easement area or setback line, the ARC reserves the right to release the property from the restriction which it violated and to grant an exception to permit the encroachment by the structure over the setback line or on the easement area, so long as the ARC, in the exercise of its sole discretion, determines that the release or exception will not materially and adversely affect the health, safety and appearance of the Properties.

P. The ARC may require that any portion of the Lots and any improvements thereon within the Properties be pre-wired for cable television and/or security in such a manner as the ARC shall specify.

Q. The ARC has the right, but not the obligation, to grant waivers for minor deviations and infractions of this Declaration. The granting of any waiver for any portion of the Properties may be given or withheld in the ARC'S sole discretion and a prior grant of a similar waiver shall not impose upon the ARC the duty to grant new or additional requests for such waivers.

R. The Association, Declarant, ARC or any officer, employee, director or member thereof shall not be liable for damages to any persons submitting plans and specifications for approval by reason of mistake in judgment, negligence or non-feasance arising out of or in connection with the approval, disapproval or failure to approve any plans and specifications. Every person who submits plans and specifications for approval agrees, by submission of such plans and specifications, that it will not bring any action or suit against the Association, Declarant or ARC to recover any such damages. Further, any builder on any of the Residential Property agrees to indemnify and hold the Declarant harmless from and against any cost, claim, damage, expense or liability whatsoever, including, attorneys' fees at all tribunal levels, arising out of any approval of plans given by the Declarant hereunder.


Section 3. Declarant Exemption.

This Article, except for the requirement to construct improvements in accordance with required governmental approvals, shall not apply to the original structures built by, on behalf of and/or sold by Declarant, its successors and assigns.

Section 4. Modifications.

The ARC shall also have exclusive jurisdiction over modifications, additions, or alterations made on or to existing Units or structures containing Units and the Open Space, if any, appurtenant thereto; provided, however, the ARC may delegate this authority to the appropriate board or committee of any Neighborhood Association subsequently created or subsequently subjected to this Declaration so long as the ARC has determined that such board or committee has in force review and enforcement practices, procedures, and appropriate standards at least equal to those of the ARC. Such delegation may be revoked at any time and for any reason, and jurisdiction reassumed at any time by written notice.

The ARC shall promulgate detailed standards and procedures governing modifications to existing Units or structures, consistent with local government standards and codes. In addition thereto, the following shall apply:
Plans and specifications showing the nature, kind, shape, color, size, materials, and location of such modifications, additions, or alterations, shall be submitted to the ARC for approval as to quality of workmanship and design and as to harmony of external design with existing structures, location in relation to surrounding structures, topography, and finish grade elevation. No permission or approval shall be required to repaint in accordance with an originally approved color scheme, or to rebuild in accordance with originally approved plans and specifications. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to limit the right of an Owner to remodel the interior of a Unit or to paint the interior of his Unit any color desired. In the event that the ARC fails to approve or to disapprove such plans or to request additional information reasonably required within thirty (30) days after submission, the plans shall be deemed approved.

area for storm water drainage or retention, and the storm water drainage and retention areas, including drainage swales or retention ponds, shall not be filled or otherwise changed so as to alter or block the flow or the quantity of water. Owners of Units within which any easement for storm water drainage or retention lines are located shall be responsible for the maintenance of such areas to permit the flow and retention of water in accordance with the storm water drainage and retention system plan required and approved by Orange County, Florida.

CC. POLLUTANTS: No owner shall discharge or allow to be discharged any pollutant, hazardous waste or toxic material, and in the event of such discharge shall be liable for all cleanup cost incurred in connection therewith.

DD. FURTHER RESTRICTIONS: These restrictions are intended to be minimum restrictions applying to the Properties. The Declarant or a Residential Property Owner will have the right to subject property to further restrictions and covenants by way of Declaration of Condominium or Declaration of Protective Covenants and Restrictions. Provided, however, that the ARC must approve such restrictions prior to recording, and such restrictions will be deemed of no force and effect and unenforceable unless the recorded instrument is executed by the chairman of said Committee indicating the required approval.

EE. NON-WAIVER: No delay in enforcing these covenants and restrictions as to any breach or violation thereof shall impair, damage or waive the right of the Association to enforce the same, to obtain relief against or recovery for continuation or repetition of such breach or violation or of any similar breach or violation thereof at a later time or times.

Section 2. Enforcement.

Failure of the Owner to comply with such restrictions, covenants, or rules and regulations shall be grounds for action which may include, without limitation, an action to recover sums due for damages, injunctive relief, or any combination thereof, including costs and attorneys' fees incurred in bringing such actions, and if necessary, costs and attorneys' fees for appellate review. The Association shall have the right to suspend voting rights and use of Common Areas and Lakes for any owner violating these Covenants and Restrictions for a period of time which is the longer of sixty (60) days or the term of continued violation. Both the Association and the Neighborhood Association (where violation has occurred with respect to a Unit within the jurisdiction of such Neighborhood Association) shall have the right to enforce the provisions of this Declaration through eviction proceedings or other self-help procedures appropriate to the violation.



Section 3. Fines:

In addition to all other remedies, in the sole discretion of the Board of the Association, a fine or fines may be imposed upon an Owner for failure of an Owner, his family, guests, invitees, tenants, or employees to comply with any covenant, restriction, rule or regulation, contained herein or promulgated pursuant to these Declarations provided the following procedures are adhered to:

A. NOTICE: Association shall notify the Owner of the infraction or infractions and the proposed fine(s) and the proposed date on which such fine(s) shall become final, which date shall not be earlier than the next regularly scheduled Board meeting. Included in the notice shall be date and time of the next Board meeting.

B. HEARING: The Owner may petition the Board in writing to appear at the next scheduled Board meeting at which time the Owner shall present reasons why the fine(s) should not be imposed. A written decision of the Board shall be submitted to the Owner not later than twenty-one (21) days after the Board's meeting. Failure of the Owner to contest any proposed fine(s) in accordance with these procedures shall constituted a waiver of his rights to further contest such proposed fine(s).

C . FINES: The Board may impose fines against any Unit as follows:

(a) First noncompliance or violation: a fine not in excess of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00)

(b) Second noncompliance or violation: a fine not in excess of five Hundred Dollars ($500.00).

D. PAYMENT OF FINES: Fines shall be paid not later than thirty (30) days after notice of the imposition or assessment of the fines.

G. NONEXCLUSIVE REMEDY: These fines shall not be construed to be exclusive, and shall exist in addition to all other rights and remedies to which the Association or the Neighborhood Association may be otherwise legally entitled; however, any fine paid by the offending Owner shall be deducted from or offset against any damages that the Association or Neighborhood Association may otherwise be entitled to recover by law from such Owner.
