Get Involved in Your Community

Many who buy homes in communities like Princeton Landing do so because a homeowners' association handles some of the chores of homeownership, such as cutting the grass, clearing snow from the driveway, or painting the deck. While it's true that living here lets us leave some things to the community, "FVCSA" isn't some remote entity that does everything needed to take care of residents' homes. In fact, FVCSA isn't anyone other than than us, the homeowners who live here. There are 600 homes in Princeton Landing — enough for a small town in some places. Someone has to help prepare a budget, oversee the property management firm we hire, make decisions about policies affecting homeowners, and otherwise do the things needed to run our community. Unless residents are willing to get involved, our community cannot succeed.

PLEASE GET INVOLVED — VOLUNTEER FOR A COMMITTEE! Call the management office or your parcel chair for further information about opportunities to get involved at Princeton Landing.

New Office Hours in 2008

For 2008, the management office in The Smith House will have new hours. General office hours will be 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Residents may visit during general hours without an appointment. Residents who want to speak to the management staff at other times are welcome to call ahead for an appointment. The change is intended to provide specific times during the work day when our management staff can meet with parcel and committee officers, other residents, vendors and others they need to speak to, without interruption by walk-in visitors.
