As a Neighborhood Representative you play a vital role in helping the Greatwood Board decide the present and future of the Greatwood Community. You do this by making decisions that are in the best interests of the majority of our residents. These decisions include maintaining our beautiful natural surroundings, landscape enhancements, our pools, Rec Centers and repairing our aging infrastructure.
Here are some of the responsibilities that you, as a Neighborhood Representative commit to, while serving your term in your respective neighborhoods:
Know Your Covenants and Deed Restrictions
Make sure that you have a copy of the Covenants and Deed Restriction on hand so you can reference them if your neighbors have questions. You can always refer them to the Management Company for clarification.
Attend Board Meetings
The best way to get accurate information is to attend monthly Board meetings. Since there are three representatives for each neighborhood it would be helpful if at least one would be in attendance.
Advocate for Your Neighborhood
Bring to the Board any issues and concerns that your neighborhood may have. Notifying the Management Company and the Board of these concerns, before the monthly Board meeting, may result in a resolution. If not, call the Greatwood office and place your item on the agenda for the next Board meeting.
Know Your Neighborhood
Be aware of any issues that affect the physical conditions of your neighborhood such as walls, fences, common area sidewalks, and landscape issues. Report these to the Board and the Management Company so they are aware and can facilitate a resolution.
Know the Other Representatives in Your Neighborhood
Please contact and meet with the other representatives in your neighborhood. Getting together, for the first time, when there is a vote or decision that affects your neighborhood, is not serving your neighbors well.
Get to Know Your Neighbors
Having neighborhood meetings or socials are a great way to find out the concerns of your neighbors. Each neighborhood is allocated $400 a year for this purpose. The addresses of all residents may be obtained through our on- site Property Manager. These are addresses only. They do not contain the residents’ name.
If there are issues and concerns that need to be addressed PLEASE bring these to the Management Company and Board early on so these may be solved.
Try to obtain emails of your residents so you can keep them aware of what is going on that especially pertains to your neighborhood. Most problems can be solved when everyone is aware of them. If everyone is on the same page we can work together to make Greatwood the best community possible.
