Community Relations

This committee will make residents aware of activities or events both within and outside our perimeter, which have the potential to directly or indirectly impact on the Vines Community.

These activities/events could include road updates, Wal Mart timetables, scheduling and agendas of various Estero meetings, emergency weather bulletins and other pertinent community information.

Ideally, this communication will be a two way street where residents gain information and are allowed to share questions and thoughts about these events.

To be effective these communications must be pertinent, timely and meaningful. Towards this end we will utilize E-mail as the primary avenue to communicate and bulletin boards as a back up.

Communications shall originate within the committee, be transmitted to the full board for approval. The president of the VCA will then transmit to Pegasus for e-mail and bulletin board postings.
