Green Valley Council (GVC) was informed that your HOA was withdrawing from the Council. We asked to speak to the Board and were denied. We asked to speak to you at your annual meeting and were denied. So, we send you this to tell you why the Council is important to you, your HOA and our community.
Green Valley is a unique, volunteer managed community. It is unincorporated but, unlike most other unincorporated communities, it has CLOUT with the Board of Supervisors, ACCESS to both the County Department heads and the boots on the ground people, and is TREATED LIKE A TOWN. Why? The Green Valley Council.
Years ago, when incorporating Green Valley failed for 3rd or 4th time, the Green Valley News said: Green Valley has chosen GVC as its form of government and that is what the Council is today—your quasi-government.
The Executive Committee serves as Administrative Branch. We handle day to day functions and propose policy and action items. The Standing Committees, which correspond to the County’s Departments, work directly with those Departments. The Committees’ 200+ volunteers are in charge of the operations. For example, we process over 150 Service Requests a year—your complaints about problems with County owned streets, roads, arroyos, and other concerns. We send these directly to the County person charged with doing the work and we monitor monthly the progress on your request.
The Board of
Representatives acts as a large “Town Council.” It decides policy, sets the
Council’s direction and drives our decision making. Desert Hills Estates has appointed
a person to represent the HOA on the Green Valley Council’s Board of Representatives. This representative is entitled to cast a
vote and is charged with bringing back to you, the homeowners, information on
what the Council is doing, the concerns of the wider community, and what needs
to be accomplished. Without the Council, you
would not have gotten $600,000 extra road money in 2017. Without the Council, you would not have gotten a new, 130+ acre Park in 2018.
Unfortunately, your Representative to the Board has not attended a Board of Representatives meeting in well over a year. So your Representative couldn’t tell you, for example, exactly how the roads scheduled for repairs were chosen or tell you that your road, while terrible, is not the worst but that it is on the next repair list. We also don’t know if your HOA President or Representative (if they are different) even forwards to you the announcements of available member only classes and seminars, open Forums on important issues, like our hospital, and events that are important to community members.
Yes, each rooftop in a HOA that is a member of the Council pays $9.50 per year to belong. However, if Green Valley were incorporated—the only alternative to the Council—do you think you would pay only $9.50 per year to support a City government? Do you think having a large voice with the County, a voice that is listened to closely, plus having a Council to act on community needs and concerns is worth $9.50 per year? If so, ask your Board to continue Desert Hills Estate’s membership in the Green Valley Council.
Thao Tiedt, President of the Green Valley Council
