B.No building or other improvements, including streets, driveways, sidewalks, drainage facilities, landscaping, fences, walks, fountains, statuary, outdoor lighting and signs, shall be commenced, constructed, erected, placed, maintained in Stone Ridge, Section One nor shall any exterior addition or alteration therein be made, unless and until (1) a preliminary site plan showing all uses and dimensions, the location of buildings, entries, streets, driveways, parking areas, pedestrian ways, and storage areas, and a schematic plan for the landscaping and lighting of the property, have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Architectural Control Committee, and thereafter (2) the final working plans and specifications for the work shown on the preliminary site plan and schematic plan have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Architectural Control Committee as to compliance with this Declaration and as to harmony of external design and location in relation to property lines, building lines, easements, grades and finished ground elevation, surrounding structures, walks, paths, and topography. The final working plans and specifications shall not be commenced until the preliminary site plan and schematic plan have been so approved. The final working plans and specifications shall specify, in such form as the Architectural Control Committee may reasonably require, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing details and the nature, kind, shape, height, exterior color scheme, materials, and locations of the proposed improvements or alterations thereto. The Architectural Control Committee may require the submission of such plans, specifications, and plot plans, together with such other documents, as it deems appropriate, in such form and detail as it may elect in its entire discretion. In the event the Architectural Control Committee fails to approve or disapprove the preliminary site plan and schematic plan within thirty (30) days after they have been submitted to it, approval thereof will not be required and the provisions of this Paragraph “B” will be deemed to have been fully complied with. Without limitation of the powers herein granted, the Architectural Control Committee shall have the right to specify an outline of minimum acceptable construction standards, including but not limited to acceptable exterior materials and/or finishes which may be used in the construction, alteration, or repair of any improvement, provided, however, that such outline will serve as a minimum guideline and such Architectural Control Committee shall not be bound thereby.
Where not otherwise specified herein, the Architectural Control Committee also shall have the right to specify requirements for each building site as follows: minimum setbacks; the location, height, and extent of fences, walls, or other screening devices; and the orientation of structures with respect to streets, walks, paths and structure on adjacent property. The Architectural Control Committee shall have full power and authority to reject and plans and specifications that do not comply with the restrictions herein imposed or meet its minimum construction requirements or architectural design requirements or that might not be compatible, in its judgment, with the overall character and aesthetics of Stone Ridge, Section One.
