Join a Committee

Our numerous resident committees offer you a meaningful and engaging opportunity to take an active role in the community, while getting to know your new neighbors and friends. These committees and informal groups help make the decisions that affect and strengthen our retirement neighborhood. You can choose to participate if that’s your style, or you can sit back and take a low-key approach - both are welcome and enjoyed!
