Columbia Association Board Identifies Possible Focus Areas for FY19
This article was published at The Villager of River Hill Village Association, April 2018 Issue.
The Columbia Association’s Board of Directors has been considering what to focus on in the upcoming fiscal year. The Board brainstormed at their March work session and identified topics they believe are most importance to the Columbia Association and Columbia Residents. The topics are varied:
- The annual charge rate and revenue,
- Declining shares of membership numbers,
- Membership types and price, service quality,
- Commercial property covenant enforcement,
- CA’s role in the downtown development and lakefront design,
- Ever increasing maintenance cost on bridges, ponds and open maintenance,
- CA’s relationship with each individual village,
- CA’s role in the county land development regulations,
- How CA is responding to changes and competition from other vendors,
- Assessment of what services and programs should be offered by CA versus other entities, and
- How CA can better serve younger adults, particularly in their late teens to age 35.
The Board will pick two to three topics within the next month and ask CA staff to focus on them over the next 12 months.
Based on the list above, what issues are most important you? Are there CA-related issues that you believe the Board should consider that are not listed? I look forward to hearing your feedback.
