Committees

There are two types of committees: standing committees and ad hoc committees. The standing committees include Finance, Covenants, Communications, Open Space, Safety, and Recreation. These committees are general in nature and are responsible for a broad range of activities.

The ad hoc committees are more specialized and exist to deal with specific issues. Current ad hoc committees include Transition and Election.

Task forces are similar to ad hoc committees in that they are formed to deal with a specific issue and have a focus that is more limited than that of an ad hoc committee. All committees and task forces have a charter, which describes their purpose. All operate by the rules and procedures that have been established by the Board of Directors. All are advisory in nature; that is, they propose items to the Board of Directors, who in turn decide what action is to be taken. All have regularly scheduled meetings and all have a period in every agenda for the residents of the community to make comments. All residents of Spring Lakes who are in good standing with the Proprietary are eligible to be a member of any committee or task force.
