Environmental Control Committee's (ECC) purpose is to protect
the natural charm of the lake community while assisting residents
and prospective residents with housing issues.
All building permits are approved by the
members of the ECC, and required new home inspections are
monitored by an ECC member. The people that serve on the committee
are volunteers who are committed to keeping Heritage Lake
a great place to live.
Anyone desiring to make additions or modifications
to their home, driveway, or lot should inquire at the office
for the necessary paperwork.
