Frequenty Asked Questions
Welcome to the Marine Hills Architectural Control Committee (MHACC) Frequently Asked Questions Section of our web site.

It is the intent of this section to provide “typical” answers to commonly asked questions.

Question: What are the steps to be followed if I have reviewed the FAQs and determine that my problem is not a private issue with a neighbor?
Answer: Be sure to review items best handled by the City of Federal Way. They could easily have the answer to many of your questions. The laws have changed recently which give them significant power over certain types of issues.

1. Regardless of your situation, concern or question your first obligation is to familiarize yourself with the covenant covering your property by using the following link Most covenants have the same or similar language for most of your questions. The MHACC, through its mandate by all covenants, has approved the wording about specific items appearing in these FAQs.
2. Your next obligation is to attempt to resolve the situation yourself. The MHACC is a community-elected all-volunteer committee that covers 550 residences in Marine Hills and therefore has limited time to deal with specific issues that it does not need to become involved with directly.
3. If you have a problem related to your property and believe it should be handled by the MHACC, your next obligation is to contact the MHACC Property Monitor. The best way is via the following link:
a) Describe the problem,
b) Explain what you have done to try to resolve it, and
c) The specific solution you desire.

Another option is to send a letter containing the information requested above to: MHACC, PMB 311, 27013 Pacific Highway South,  Des Moines, WA 98198-9250.

For all other questions concerning the MHACC, please send us a message via the following link:, or by sending us a letter to: MHACC, PMB 311, 27013 Pacific Highway South, Des Moines, WA 98198-9250.

It is advised by the MHACC that people check these FAQs for an answer to their questions before contacting the MHACC using the “Contact Us” link provided.
