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 effective 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 (Currently on hold)
Once elected RAC officers attend regular trainings to help them in their roles - some of the subjects covered include; roles and responsibilities 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.
