ACCES Architectural Review Procedures and Rules

As you probably noticed in the drop-down menu above, ACCES now has it’s own Main Menu button, with links provided to the revised ACCES Architectural Review Procedure and Rules, as well as separate links to the 10 attachments that supplement the revised rules.

This page is a Quick Guide to ensure you take full advantage of the online features of the revised rules, which will help you easily find the answers you need, and much quicker than a paper version.

Important Features:

  • The Table of Contents:
    • Clicking on any item listed in the Table of Contents takes you directly to that section of the rules!
  • Links Throughout:
    • Clicking on any of the links you find takes you to more information relevant to the topic at hand.
  • The Summary on Page 3:
    • Provides a short list of what is Prohibited in Greenwood.
    • Provides a longer list of projects, items, and uses that do not need ACCES Approval.
    • Lists 3 items (Satellites, Dead Trees, and Open House Signs) that the GVCA Office can help you resolve quickly, without waiting for a meeting of the ACCES.
  • The Matrix on Page 4, and Matrix Definitions on Page 5:
    • Lists a variety of outdoor projects and items that DO require ACCES Approval.
    • More importantly, it shows exactly what information needs to be included for a successful application.
    • The Definitions page not only spells out what is needed, it provides a link to the Summit County property map, which can save a lot of time creating plans.
  • Please Note: Any exterior change not listed in Page 3 or 4 also requires ACCES Approval. If yours is the first, you may end up helping ACCES set the standards for this new type of exterior change.

With that said, it is time to try it out!

If you want to jump directly to the Summary, the Matrix, or one of the 10 Attachments without bringing up the whole document, use the drop down menu under the ACCES menu above.

While ACCES approval does require some planning for exterior changes, we believe it is worth it to keep Greenwood Village the beautiful and natural place it has been since inception.

The volunteers of the ACCES thank you for your cooperation in keeping Greenwood Village beautiful.

Don’t forget to get approval for your project from the Sagamore Hills Zoning and Summit County Building Departments.

Here are some useful links:
