Property Owners Association (POA)
As a homeowner you are now a member of the Governors Village Property Owners Association (POA). Find out about about the structure, membership, guiding principles, activities and documents of the POA.
Learn about the six neighborhoods that make up our community.
- The POA Board: The board has nine volunteer members elected by the community. Each neighborhood has one director seat, and there are three at-large directors who can be from any of the neighborhoods. The design is that three seats come up for election every year.
- The Townes Board: The Townes board has five volunteer members elected by the Townes homeowners.
- The Architectural Review Board (ARB): The ARB has seven volunteer members elected by the POA board. Exterior changes, including the addition of fences and play sets, require prior approval by the ARB.
The community has a number of standing committees, each made up of volunteer members and a committee chair, and a board member liaison.
