Delinquent accounts older than 60 days will be subject to additional collection actions including use of a collection agency, Small Claims Court, filing of a lien or foreclosure action. Repeated late payments will NOT be tolerated

What is the purpose of the access (amenity) cards?

The purpose is to restrict our facilities to those who do NOT live in our community. You may have 2 guests maximum per unit but your visitors may not use your access card to gain entry for themselves. The access card identifies users as they scan into the pool area, exercise room, pool table room and tennis courts (tennis court will be added in 2018). All areas requiring access cards have rules and regulations posted and violations will result in the loss of your access card. Access cards MUST be on your person at all times when using access card required areas. If you forget your access card you will not have access until you return with your card to enter.

Who can use the tennis courts, exercise room, pool table room or game room?

All residents of VBR in good standing who are 18 years of age may utilize these specific areas with use of their personal access cards.

NOTE: There is an age exception for pool access. See pool rules on the VBR web site.

Do I need to complete an improvement application request to have a satellite dish installed?

Yes, prior to ordering you must request approval in this case and also any exterior improvement or add on. An additional notice you need to be aware of is if you decide at a later date you no longer want the dish or if you are planning on moving it is your responsibility to contact your dish supplier and at your cost to have it removed. If this is not done we will forward any associated cost to you.

Can any resident issue a work order and what is the process?
