Westwood Association

The Westwood Association Architecture Review Committee (ARC) has purview over the architecture and landscaping within the associations in Westwood.  Any changes to the architecture or landscaping to a home within one of the associations in Westwood must obtain the approval of the ARC.  The fee as of 5/23/16 is $0 (free).

The chairman of ARC is Reed Reichert and can be reached at the Westwood Club, (858) 485-63oo, or email him at archcontrol@rbwestwoodclub.com.
