Resident Services

You have someone to turn to in your new neighborhood. Start with your Resident Services Coordinator. They will help you locate community agencies and services as you settle into your new home and continue to support you should questions or needs arise. The Resident Services Coordinator also publishes a monthly doormail telling you about upcoming events, activities, and other important information.
