Volunteering in Windridge:

Volunteers are an absolutely critical component of what makes Windridge a wonderful place to call home. Volunteers, by giving of their time, their energy, their skills, and their resources help ensure that our quality of life here is enriched and sustained. And, with a community of our size, there are so many ways you can add an invaluable extra element to our quality of life.

Alternatives include:

Serving on the Board of Directors

  • Directors are elected by the owners, with each Director serving for a three year term.  Elections held each year to elect replacements for retiring Directors. 
  • As you would expect, the Board is responsible for overseeing the Association’s budget development, monitoring expenditures, and ensuring the community’s infrastructure and unit exteriors are well maintained.  These complex tasks are central to the Board’s fiduciary responsibility to the Association. 
  • In addition, the Board reviews all landscape and architectural requests and works closely with the Property Manager to ensure that repairs are well executed and competitively priced.
  • The Board addresses concerns presented by owners at the Board’s monthly meetings and takes action when it is deemed appropriate and feasible.
  • To help streamline the Board’s activities, members also serve on a variety of wide ranging  committees addressing areas as varied as Association insurance coverage, Millersville community relations, legal issues, budget preparation, and more.   NOTE: Owners are encouraged to assist the Board by serving on these committees as volunteers.    

Serving on a Windridge Committee

This is without question one of the most important ways owners can contribute to our community.  As noted above, owners can work directly with Board members in everything from budget recommendations to landscape improvements to community social activities.  Virtually without exception, committee volunteers make new friends while actively working to make a real difference in the Windridge community.  

If you have some energy or some interest in helping make Windridge an even more special community, contact the office to arrange to have a Board member discuss available options with you.  Your participation can make such a huge difference. 

The Committees where volunteer assistance is particularly appreciated include:

Landscape Committee:  Volunteers on this committee review all landscape requests submitted by residents and make approval/denial recommendations to the Board.  In addition, the volunteers lend invaluable assistance in completing landscape projects on common areas in the community.  This is a wonderful opportunity to help make Windridge a more beautiful setting.  (If interested in volunteering for this committee, contact Beverly Watkins at 312-513-6309.)

Social Activities Committee:  Volunteers on this committee help plan and host various community social activities during the year.  Their participation helps ensure that our residents have many opportunities to socialize with other Windridge owners.  (If interested in volunteering for this committee, contact Stephanie Denson – 312-513-6309 .)

Budget Committee:  For those owners who have an interest in financial planning for the community, this is the place for you.  Volunteers meet in the Fall of each year to help develop recommendations for the community’s next annual budget, using the property manager’s recommendations as the critical starting point.  (If interested, contact John Ryker – 317-985-5354.)

Financial Planning Committee:  Owners who serve on this committee help oversee the Association’s investments, ensuring that investments are profitably and wisely allocated to help fund the capital reserve.  (If interested, contact Steve Kleifgen at 317-250-9687.)

Long Range Planning Committee:  This owner Committee works closely with the Property Manager in developing the Association’s 20 year plan for expenditures and infrastructure maintenance.  (If interested, contact John Ryker – 317-985-5354.)

Millersville at Fall Creek

Our condo community is fortunate to be part of what is generally acknowledged as one of the best (or, frankly, THE best) community associations in Indianapolis. Formed when over 50 local businesses and 30 neighborhoods came together to improve, protect, and develop the area in which we live. Millersville at Fall Creek is blessed to have members who are active, effective, and committed. (One of Windridge’s current Board members has, for example, served on the Millersville Association for several years.)

This association has worked tirelessly to improve our area’s business landscape, enhance the attractiveness of its public areas, and vigorously advocate for the community with Indianapolis’ agencies and governing bodies.

To learn more about the Association, to receive their newsletter, or to learn more about the interesting history of the Millersville area, go to www.millersvillefcv.comAt that website, you can also learn more about upcoming local events, current issues, and local volunteering opportunities.  As you might expect, the Association is always looking for volunteers to help with its many projects.
