The meetings provide homeowners with an opportunity to express neighborhood concerns as well as become aware of opportunities to become involved within the community. Quarterly homeowner meetings will continue to be scheduled.

Chick-fil-A Spirit night was a bonus for World Habitat Week!! Chick-fil-A sponsored the partnership breakfast by providing biscuits. When the owners heard about all the activities scheduled for World Habitat Week, they were eager to becoming involved and graciously offered to schedule Spirit Night!
