SOA Facilities Committee et al

somersett UnitedEarlier this year a new SOA Facilities Committee was created. This Committee will augment the existing Strategic Planning Committee by focusing more on short term issues with the following purpose in mind (i.e., as extracted from the Committee Charter):

The Facilities Committee shall advise the Board and Association Staff on matters related to systems, amenities, facility usage, facility changes (additions, deletions, modifications, etc.) within The Club at Town Center (TCTC) and SOA common areas, including Canyon 9.

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Hold scheduled meetings to discuss topics published in advance in an agenda related to common area and TCTC facilities, amenities and/or activities.
  • Solicit and receive input from Association homeowners and staff regarding facility/amenity usage and changes.
  • Report its findings and recommendations in writing to the Board.

To date nothing has been published on the SOA’s website with regard to any committee meeting recaps, so its findings and recommendations, if any, are not evident.

This is a common fault with other committees as well. In general, SOA Committee recaps when published on the website are written more as “meeting minutes” and not overly informative.

Perhaps as the new SOA website evolves, our SOA Committees will see fit to publish routine “Committee Reports” (e.g., either bi monthly or quarterly), informing homeowners as to their activities, goals, accomplishments, etc. This would also apply to a “Board Report”, which would supplement the current BOD meeting minutes, the last of which was for the June 22nd BOD Meeting.

TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR? – Committee and Board Member comments welcome.
