Ideally the committee is comprised of a chairperson and three or more members. Members who love to meet people and make friends, have knowledge of area resources and services are particularly encouraged to join.
The Welcome Committee maintains an online library of community informational resources on the Committee webpage and personally introduces new residents to the Montage Community, the City and the Coachella Valley to help them overcome the unease of moving into a new neighborhood. The Committee shares important local information, answers questions and facilitates enhanced neighbor interaction and socialization to help maintain the strength of Montage’s supportive network.
The Committee members welcome new community residents as soon as possible following the purchase or long-term leasing of a Montage Property. Contact with the resident is initiated soon after notification of a change of occupant by the property management company, realtor, or upon contact by the new resident themselves. Committee members deliver a Welcome Packet at the first visit.
The Welcome Packet includes:
- A Welcome Letter from the HOA President
- Homeowner Rights and Responsibilities
- Architectural and Community Standards
- Architectural Improvement Request (AIR)
- Artificial Turf Requirements
- Exterior Paint Policy
- Solar Installation Guidelines
In addition, committee members will assist new residents with contact information, and Internet links to assure new residents are familiar with Association communications protocols and are able to receive important information from the Association or the property management company.
The initial meeting will also include information related to resident privileges at Mission Hills Country Club and a quick overview of helpful guidelines (based upon CC&Rs and Rules and Regulations) used by the Association residents to fully appreciate the opportunities and responsibilities of daily life in Montage.
The Committee meets as necessary to successfully facilitate its activities. For more specific information about Committee activities or about serving on the Committee pleas contact the Welcome Committee Chair which can be found on the Board webpage by Clicking Here.
