I would like to point out that I did not create this VP Site in the conventional manner in which most websites are written... That is, where you click on an item and it takes you to it...
I created this site in 2008 at a time when the majority of our VP residents did well to get their e-mail... I therefore kept it simple with a scroll down type of site...
Seven years later, with an influx of younger (a relative term) people in our community that are computer literate, I could change the entire site to a more conventional version...
But, I won't... When in the future, someone else takes over the site, they may set it up in a different mode... In the meantime, Happy Scrolling!!! Jer

VANTAGE POINTE ARCHITECTURAL
(more VP volunteers)
The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) was formed, not because they didn't have anything better to do but because they take pride in our VP community.
These Committee members certainly take no joy in being the 'bad guys' in enforcing the rules. In my humble opinion it's the worse job in here to have to inform their friends and neighbors that a correction needs to be made, often quite minor and occasionally major. Don't kill the messenger, they are just doing a service for you and the rest of us in attempting to have our homes maintained in an attractive manner and thereby maintaining our property values.
If you question the need for these rules, I suggest you take a ride in our neighboring communities and ask yourself if you would want to be neighbors to some of these homes. These rules have been in place for over 20 years and because of them and the results of keeping VP an attractive place to live, this is one of the more obvious reasons most of us have moved here.

OUR MOTLEY CREW ...
Our Motley Crew consists of our VP volunteers that step forward whenever there is some work to be done here in VP... It isn't always the same people, but there is a willing number that helps keep our costs down and is one of the main reasons that there has not been a dues increase since 2004...
