Resident Advisory Council (RAC)


ELECTIONS2022 IS RAC ELECTION YEAR
Elections are held every three years.  Check bulletin boards, digital boards (TV monitors), and common areas (where available), and regular mail for updates.   Elections are overseen by an independent 3rd party.  

Interest Meetings will be held on Monday 3rd October at the following properties:
Vista Del Mar Commons 137 S Palm Street, Community Room 1:30pm-2:30pm
Johnson Gardens, 1055 Johnson Drive, Community Room 3:30pm-4:30pm

Interest Meetings will be held on Tuesday 4th October at the following properties:

Vista Del Monte, 2400 N Ventura Avenue (for AMP 5 Elections), Community Room 3:30pm-4:30pm
Westview Village, 1187 Riverside Street, Community Room 6pm-7pm

At the interest meeting you will hear about the election process and be able to see sample forms and hear about how to nominate yourself or another person for election.  You will receive information about the independent 3rd Party who will be overseeing the Elections (ballot collection, count, announcement of results etc.); the Housing Authority will not be involved other than to provide information by advertising the process + any and all information relating to the process (who is eligible, how to nominate, accepting the nomination, how to vote in person/by mail; contact details for the independent party). 


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.
