Neighborhood Representatives

Each of the fourteen neighborhoods in Vista Lakes may elect a Neighborhood Representative; the current Representatives are listed below.

What does a Neighborhood Representative do? The formal responsibilities of the Neighborhood Representatives are spelled out in the Governing Documents (please see paragraph 6.3 of the Declaration of Master Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions of Vista Lakes for more information); however, the two major ones are:

  1. To elect residents to the Board of Directors of the Vista Lakes Community Association (VLCA) – with each Representative casting as many votes as there are residences in his or her neighborhood
  2. To chair the neighborhood’s Neighborhood Committee, and represent the Committee to the Board of Directors.

But being a Neighborhood Representative is more than merely electing the Board, and there is more that Representatives should do to help their neighborhoods. In fact, they can be considered as the glue that holds neighborhoods together. This can be done in a variety of ways, including: creating a neighborhood email distribution list to help neighborhood communication; holding occasional neighborhood meetings; getting Neighborhood Watch started (if it hasn’t been already); soliciting candidates for, and holding elections for a Neighborhood Committee; and through the Committee, identifying neighborhood needs and concerns and taking them to the Board of Directors; and organizing neighborhood events such as block parties.

How are Neighborhood Representatives elected? Each neighborhood elects its own Neighborhood Representative. Each spring, every homeowner receives a form you can use to volunteer and provide some background information. Or you can complete the online form.  The Association will mail completed forms to each neighborhood resident who then vote by mail to elect their Representative.

I have an issue in my neighborhood – can the Representative help? Perhaps. Contact your Representative and discuss it. Of course, you can always contact a Vista Lakes manager or Board member directly, but issues affecting a number of neighbors or that are identified by the Neighborhood Committee may get more visibility when they are officially presented to the Board by your Neighborhood Representative.

Our Neighborhood Representative doesn’t do anything and our neighborhood has some issues that need attention, and I can’t get a meaningful response from my Neighborhood Representative. What can I do? Try again, and offer to help! If that doesn’t work, contact a Vista Lakes Manager or a member of the Board. Perhaps your representative is no longer able to devote time to his or her responsibilities and would happily offer to be replaced. Perhaps you could volunteer!

It is solely up to residents to make Vista Lakes an even more wonderful place to live – why not start by trying to make your neighborhood even better!
