Please join us!  Learn about your neighborhood and plan to participate!

We will review what was accomplished in 2017, share our plans for 2018, and invite you to share your thoughts and/or concerns with our board members.  

Board Elections
Board members will be elected for terms ending in 2020.  What does it take to be a board member?  Probably, it takes a lot less than you would think!  Just be a VDR resident.  It is not necessary to be a homeowner. We invite you to join us!

Call Tina Baker, Nominations Committee Chair, at 520-609-4066 to place your name on the ballot.  (Leave your information on her message machine.)  Please note that nominations can be made from the floor at the appropriate time during the election process.
