Resident Committees





Our resident committees are dedicated to making the Del Webb Community a more beautiful and safe place for residents to enjoy.



The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) works with homeowners and with the Del Webb Orlando HOA Board of Directors, HOA staff, and other homeowner committees and groups to ensure that community aesthetic and architectural standards are maintained. The ARC reviews applications for all exterior improvements, from satellite dishes to solar panels to screen enclosures to landscape work.  ARC members are guided by the Del Webb Orlando Homeowners Association governing documents, including, but not limited to, the Design Guidelines, ARC Standards, the Amended and Restated Community Declaration for Del Webb Orlando At Ridgewood Lakes (including supplements, exhibits and amendments).  The ARC typically meets twice a month, on Wednesdays, and applications must be received by the HOA staff at least 7 days before a meeting.  Meeting dates are posted on this website, and meeting notices and agendas are sent to all homeowners.  Homeowners are encouraged to attend ARC meetings to discuss their applications, understand the process, and ask questions.

The Fines and Suspensions Committee (FSC), as required by F.S. 720.305(b), reviews cited violations when a fine and/or suspension has been proposed by the Board.  Members cited with rules violations by the HOA Community Manager have the right to a noticed and open hearing before the Fines and Suspension Committee.  The DWO HOA FSC will act as the Owner’s “Jury of Peers” comprised of conflict-free and eligible members selected by the Committee’s Chair.  The Jury of Peers will deliberate and determine whether there has been a violation of the Association’s governing documents, rules, or restrictions.  At the noticed Fines and Suspensions Committee Meeting hearing both the Management of the Association and the Owner or agents of the Owner will have the opportunity to present testimony and evidence or to explain, defend or justify their actions or inactions.  The “Jury of Peers” will deliberate on all the information presented.  The purpose of the “Jury of Peers” is to determine by a preponderance of the evidence and majority vote whether the violation(s) either occurred or did not occur.  The findings and recommendation are documented as Committee Meeting minutes which is thereafter provided to both the Owner and the Board by mail or hand delivery as required by law.  The Board at a subsequent Board Meeting may then impose penalties (including fines and/or suspension of privileges) consistent with the Committee’s findings and Florida law.
