Volente Neighborhood Association
The name of the organization is the Volente Neighborhood Association
("VNA”). It was founded in 1988.
The Neighborhood represented includes all properties located along
FM 2769, Bullick Hollow Road, Lime Creek Road, and properties located along
all roadways that originate either directly, or as tributary from these
The purpose of the organization is to implement, promote, or coordinate
with other agencies, programs for the protection, safety and enhancement
of the Volente community.
Membership in the organization is purely voluntary. It is not a mandatory
"homeowners association". VNA does not own property.
It is operated as a non-profit, volunteer association like the majority
of neighborhood associations in our area and across the country.
Dues for members are only $15 per calendar year. Membership applications are
found on most newsletters and at the following URL: http:/www.volente.org/memberfm.html
Some of the recent initiatives of VNA included:
Better communications through the Volente eNews electronic newsletter. We still produce one or two printed newsletters per year. We mail 600 copies to the Volente community
and to other associations and regulatory bodies. This is our single biggest
General membership meetings. We hold at least one, sometimes more general meetings
each year. These meetings are always well attended and the topics and speakers
always seem well received by residents.
- Closer ties and support of the Volente
Volunteer Fire Department. Updated Fire Department information, such as burn bans or public activities, are
published on our web site. VNA helped residents create an Emergency
Services District to fund VVFD at an appropriate level.
- Representing the neighborhood better by using designated, standing
committees with defined responsibilities. Committee assignments were
published in the newsletter and are on the web site.
- Active participation in other associations to leverage our strength. These
include: Lake Travis Community Coalition, Austin Neighborhood Council,
Protect Lake Travis Association, Highland
Lakes Group, Volente
VVFD, and 2222
Coalition of Neighborhood Associations.
