The Housing Authority strives to ensure that residents are provided with an environment that is rich in opportunity and in which residents can help shape their community. One way this is accomplished is through Resident Advisory Councils or RACs. 

Residents are 'members' of their respective RAC and have the right to vote on items at meetings.  For example, all residents living at Westview Village are members of the Westview RAC. 

Each RAC meets once a month and all members are encouraged to attend - these meetings offer an easy and effectvie way to get involved in your community. 
Your elected RAC officers:

  • Promote well-being and fellowship among residents
  • Act as a vital link between residents and HACSB management; relaying comments, suggestions, and concerns. 
  • Sponsor gatherings and community events

Once elected RAC officers attend regular trainings to help them in their roles - some of the sucjects covered include;  roles and responsibilites of each RAC officer, how to conduct meetings, dealing with difficult situations, leadership and advocacy, budget management, by-laws, forming sub-committees, and community engagement. 


The role
of the CWRAB is to assist and make reccomendations regarding the development of the PHA plan, and any significant amendment or modification to the PHA plan.   Meetings are required three/four times a year for this specific purpose.

The CWRAB consists of an elected RAC officer from each of the four current RACs. 

HACSB CWRAB have chosen to meet every month and alternate their meetings between the westside and eastside to accommodate all residents.
