Communications and Events Committee plans a few annual events including the pool Opening Day in the spring and National Night Out in the fall. Members of this committee work with the CVOA management company and the webmaster to provide updates to the website. Upcoming events are communicated via the Announcements section of the website and via emails from Sentry. The Neighborhood Watch Committee is part pf the CVOA Communications and 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 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.
