DRAFT Mission & Values

Our Mission (Draft)

Our mission is to serve our community through the effective management of the Association and through the development and enforcement of reasonable and fair guidelines and other rules that are intended to help protect property values and ensure the well being of our community as a whole.

In doing our work, we strive to cultivate a sense of community and collaborative engagement. This includes providing opportunities for community input when significant decisions need to be made.

We always strive to take an ethical, fair, reasonable and objective approach to decision-making as we work to represent the interests of our owner community as a whole.

Through all we do, we hope to make Trotter Farm a one-of-a-kind neighborhood where our owners can enjoy the benefit of family, friends, community and nature.
