Board Work Session

A Board work session will be held at the Barn on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 1 P.M.  In keeping with the policy of transparency, all members of SVPOA are invited to attend.  The sole purpose of this Board work session will be to concentrate on the third and final draft of the DCCR documents; therefore, no comments from the floor will be allowed unless there is time at the end of the meeting.  This meeting is to address completion of the documents only and no other business will be conducted at this time.


There is a drop down menu under Village Information for the CAI articles I’ll be posting.   I have posted this one previously but posting it here makes it easier to find.   Enjoy


THE CITIZEN STANDARD, a weekly newspaper delivered on Thursday’s, will now be available for the convenience of our residents.

A news stand box will be placed outside of the BARN. The paper will cost 75 cents (quarters only). The citizen standard covers our local area news such as water board meetings, township meetings, and Pine Grove Borough. The paper is based out of Valley View, PA.

CAI Articles

I have been given access by our President to free CAI articles which are available to associations.    I occasionally will post an article which I think will be of interest to our members and residents.    When I do I will add a post that there’s a new article available; it will be found under Village Information/CAI.


The new SVPOA 2014 Board Members have been posted; you will find it under the top tab, Village Information, then click on the Board of Directors tab.    It also indicates when their terms expire.

Following this information you will find the listing of all the dates for board meetings for 2014.
