President's Message

Our primary goal as volunteer members of the Villages of Tower Oaks Board of Directors is to preserve, protect and enhance the value of the community and make it a great experience for our residents.

As Board members we welcome feedback from our membership to identify areas of concern, discuss them, solicit suggestions and proposals to ensure the community is being properly maintained and improved for everyone’s mutual benefit.  During our regularly scheduled public Board meetings issues are discussed, proposals are shared, motions are made to carry out any necessary action on behalf of the membership and then acted on when approved. 

 

The work of the Board is achieved through a collaborative effort, with the understanding that the Board is responsible for effectively managing the association’s business and finances, based on a thorough review, and understanding of the budget.  When called upon, pursuant to our governing documents, the Board works on behalf of the community to address disputes. 

 

We have a number of common areas, walls, streets, circles, the entrance, curbs, lights, signs, etc. within the community that are owned by all of us and the maintenance, appearance, and safety of these common areas is a top priority. We have reserve funds set aside for maintenance to ensure the appearance of the community remains welcoming and attractive. The streets throughout the community are relatively narrow and for the safety of children, joggers/walkers, and dog-walkers – please watch your speed. Please note that the neighborhood wide speed limit is 15 mph.

Please carefully review the Villages regulations for exterior architectural design changes, exterior home appearance and maintenance, parking, refuse, and pets, as described in the Governing Documents section of this site. What makes the Villages at Tower Oaks such a great community is the fact that the original developers saw the need to establish strong covenants to uphold both high standards of quality and appearance.  Compliance with these regulations helps to ensure that the community remains attractive and that our property values will continue to appreciate.

 

We encourage you to meet other Villages residents by attending board meetings, the annual meeting, social events, and welcome volunteers to join and participate in one of our committees. Please also consider becoming a candidate for the board. At present, all board meetings are being held via zoom – so it’s easy to participate. 

 

We welcome residents’ ideas and feedback on ways to improve the neighborhood and appreciate any and all suggestions. Feel free to email the board or committee members with your suggestions, questions, or concerns at VillagesAtTowerOaks@gmail.com. Alternatively, you may contact Edna Kweti our Community Association Manager/Comsource Representative at Comsource, our property management company, at 301.924.7355 ext 121. 

 

If you are a non-owner resident living in the community and would like to receive future information regarding community events, board meetings, committee activities and informational messages (e.g., snow removal, trash service, landscaping, etc.) please contact the Board at VillagesAtTowerOaks@gmail.com, provide us with your e-mail address and we will add you to the distribution list.


Speaking for the entire Villages at Tower Oaks HOA Board of Directors, we look forward to continuing to serve the community and to working collaboratively to ensure that the future of our community is bright.
