The Association retains the services of a professional Property Management Company to take care of the day-to-day operational aspects of the Association’s property. Beyond that the Association is governed by resident volunteers. Without these volunteers the Association would have to either hire other professional services (potentially requiring a significant increase in the monthly dues) or reduce services. Most positions require a one-year commitment and provide the opportunity to get to know other families in the development.
Positions which are filled annually include:
- Board of Directors: 5 members, a two-year term with 2 or 3 members elected in alternating years. Requires attending monthly meetings and the annual meeting.
- Architectural Committee: 3 Members. Meets to review plans for new homes or requests to approve landscaping plans, remodeling plans that affect the exterior as well as exterior paint color or replacement roof selections. Due to the maturity of the development the time commitment to serve on this committee is relatively minor.
- Newsletter Editor: Minimum of one person. Publishes Quarterly Newsletter.
- Neighborhood Watch: 2 or more members (one member per street is desirable). Coordinate the Neighborhood Watch Program and to receive residents’ calls of possible security issues not requiring immediate law enforcement intervention and to assist in the contact of authorities regarding vandalism or other security issues.
- Web Page Maintenance: 1 or more members. Provide monthly maintenance and updates of the Association’s website.
- Annual Picnic: 1 Coordinator and several volunteers to serve on the committee. The Association pays for this event that is planed and coordinated by the committee.
