The Columbia Village Board of Directors has engaged with an outsourced website provider who can help us make information available in a more timely manner. It is anticipated that this website will serve as a platform for more rapid dissemination of information throughout the community regarding issues of interest to residents. This new website layout is designed to populate easier via different modes of viewing the site (computer screen, tablet, smart phone). Please bear with us as we update the content and modify how information is organized. Ultimately, we hope that you will find this site informative, useful, and engaging. In addition to communication from the new CVOA management partner Sentry, it is our desire to have this website serve as the source for communication information and updates about Columbia Village.

The Architectural Control Committee exists to help ensure consistent application of design criteria and requirements included in the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&R’s) and Architectural Specifications and Standards. All proposed exterior changes to homes and landscaping must be reviewed and approved by this committee prior to work commencing. Some examples include: changes to house color, installation of a new roof, addition of more living or garage space, patio covers, construction of fences, placement of storage shed or significant changes to the landscaping in your yard.
This committee also handles Covenant Violations and tries to resolve these violations with the homeowner. If a homeowner does not comply with the Covenants, corrective action up to and including legal action may be taken. All complaints must be in writing with your name and phone number so that we can sure to address the correct issue on the correct property. All complaints will be kept confidential.
The Landscape and Maintenance Committee plans and oversees the maintenance of the common area which includes berms, lawns, bedding areas, sprinkler irrigation system, micro paths, and the desert belt areas. The committee serves as a liaison with our landscape maintenance contractor to assure that the care of our common areas is done properly. Landscape maintenance is the largest cost item in the budget or our homeowners association.
The Neighborhood Watch Committee is led by a chairperson who is in touch with the Boise Police Department and is part pf the CVOA Communications and Events Committee. Columbia Village Neighborhood Watch is organized into a team of block captains who are the contact people for specific sections of the neighborhood. The committee is responsible for maintenance of the Neighborhood Watch signs located on each street. Columbia Village has approximately 90 designated small sections for block captain participation. There’s always a need for more help and the time commitment is very minor, although some block captains go above and beyond by planning block parties and other fun activities. Block Captains act as as a ‘telephone tree’ and to communicate with neighbors in the event of an neighborhood emergency. The Neighborhood Watch chairperson holds meetings once or twice per year for block captains to share ideas and learn more about what is happening in our community from guest speakers such as BPD, Carey Guard, and other relevant resources.

Members of this committee work with the CVOA management company and the webmaster to provide updates to the website. In second quarter 2018 this committee will also be more involved with providing social media updates for CVOA topics and fostering additional communication through the Neighborhood Watch Block Captain program.
