Committees

The Downs of Hillcrest HOA Committees

    Architectural Control Committee (ACC)

    Our members serve one year terms. They approve or deny homeowner applications for renovation or improvement on property visible from common areas. Downs CCR’s define property amendments or improvements which require an OK by this committee. Appeals of the committee’s determination go to the elected Board. Find the application form here.

    The Downs Social Connection

    Members organize social events throughout the year for residents. There is always a spring and fall block party, with food, sometimes live music or an antique car display, and children’s games. A December Holiday Party draws good crowds. Book Clubs for men and women meet 4th Thursdays at 3pm most months, Lunch Bunches for men and women and driveway or cul de sac Happy Hours fill out the offerings. This committee also manages a private Downs Facebook page and a Facebook Market page.
