Current Community Committees

Board of Directors

Every year, the community elects either three or four directors for a two-year term. In 2021, there are three vacancies. Residents who choose to run self-nominate for the vacant seats and are elected by lot owners on a one-lot, one-vote basis. The elections are electronic and administered by Vote-Now.  Voting by paper ballot or choosing a proxy to represent you are also options. Meet the Board of Directors
