As of January 1, 2020, ONLY the forms listed below and in the Orchard Creek Lodge will be accepted. All prior versions of the forms are obsolete. Don't forget your application must include both the Application form with Checklists and required exhibits attached, along with a color photo of your home and yard. If you are a non-resident of Sun City Lincoln Hills and would like to obtain a form, please contact the Community Standards Department. If you need a plot plan, contact Community Standards at 916-625-4008 or 916-625-4009, or contact the City of Lincoln by email at [email protected] or call 916-434-2470.
Be sure to sign and date your ARC Application form and Checklists, attach any supporting documentation, and deposit two sets into the ARC Drop Box located in the room next to the main desk at the Orchard Creek Lodge. One set will be placed in your property file (ARC copy) and the other will be returned to you for your records (Resident copy).
The ARC meets twice a month at 9:00 a.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of the month (except December). Your application must be listed on the agenda for it to be reviewed. The deadline for submission is 2:00 p.m. the Wednesday prior to the Monday meeting. ARC applications that are missing forms will be returned prior to the meeting and will not be reviewed until all required forms are included. Paint Applications are reviewed every Thursday afternoon (attendance not necessary), and Solar Applications are approved as needed.
For information on the application process see the ARC FAQs. If you have any questions, contact the Community Standards Coordinators at 916-625-4008 or Community Standards Manager at 916-625-4006.

ARC PAINT APPLICATION AND INFORMATION
COMPLIANCE COMPLAINT REPORT
Complaint or Concern?
Do you have a complaint or concern? The Community Standards Department encourages residents to fill out a "Complaint Report." The complaint form allows residents to give a description of the concern and assists the Community Standards Department in investigating the issue.
Complaint Report Forms are available at the Orchard Creek Lodge Business Office or click here. Once the form is completed, drop it in the ARC/Compliance Box located in the Business Office. The Community Standards Department will then follow up with an investigation if it is a valid complaint. Status reports are not given by Civil Law. Know that your valid written complaint is in process. Be sure to include a complete description of your concern, along with your name, address, phone number, and email address (if you have one). Due to the limited number of staff and the volume of complaints received, priority will be given to valid written complaints with contact information over anonymous written complaints.
If you have any questions or would like to obtain a form, contact the SCLH Community Standards Department by email at [email protected].
