Currently only two people serve on the Pinecrest
Board. The board could use the help of
homeowners that would be willing to give some
of their time to serve on the board. The board
meets four times a year. Generally, we meet
once every three months. Please consider
joining the board.

We need people that would be willing to work on
a landscape / plant committee. It would give you
a larger voice in what happens in the community.
If you would consider volunteering for the a plant

committee started please call TWC and give
your name to Kim Hendon. We do have
someone in the community that would be willing
to assist on a committee that would help in
beautifying each block.. Kim will put you in touch
with that person.
We also need a people that would be willing to sit
down and review the design standards. It needs
to be updated. If you would be willing to
volunteer some time to review and update
Pinecrest’s standards ( I believe ROA would
help) this would be a huge help. Again, please
call Kim Hendon at TWC so we can get this
