As the new year quickly approaches, your association should take stock of what is currently doing well within the community and what needs improvement. It is a great time to begin setting realistic goals for aspects of your community that need more attention. While it is great to be ambitious, it is important to set your association up for success.
As your Wesley Chapel homeowners association company, our team at Wise Property Management can help you identify areas of improvement, as well as create effective resolutions.
Identifying Areas for Improvement
Before setting goals, take the time to thoroughly assess your Wesley Chapel community. During this assessment, look for areas that would benefit from improvement, whether it’s amenities and common areas, resident satisfaction, or operational efficiency. A thorough evaluation of strengths and weaknesses can provide a roadmap for meaningful actions that your community can make.
Setting Specific Goals
When setting goals, there are four things to keep in mind. Goals should be precise, measurable, relevant, and achievable. When setting goals, it is important to define measurable characteristics and set specific targets. A good example of an effective and specific goal would be to “remodel and expand the community gym by August 1st” instead of “improve community amenities.”
Once goals have been set, it is important to prioritize them by urgency, impact, and resources. Critical improvements and projects should be made first. Additionally, a good strategy is to break down large goals into smaller tasks, making objectives more achievable and progress easier to track. For example, remodeling the community gym can be broken into: including a weight rack, installing an elliptical, and installing a sauna.
If your goal is to increase property values, upgrading your community amenities may be a priority for your community. It can be valuable to get community input on desirable amenities and improvements that can be made. Once the community inventory has been taken, establish specific goals for amenity upgrades, whether it involves renovating existing spaces, introducing new recreational areas, or implementing eco-friendly initiatives.
With Wise Property Management as your Wesley Chapel HOA association, it is time to develop a detailed plan outlining the budget, timeline, and logistics for each upgrade. With decades of experience, our team understands the details of making community improvements and can provide your association with guidance.
Community Engagement Initiatives
Some communities may prioritize implementing strategies and platforms to increase community engagement. Your neighborhood can foster a greater degree of activity and engagement by implementing initiatives that encourage interaction and involvement in communal activities.
If this is your community’s goal, your association should set goals for organizing regular community events, workshops, or social gatherings to strengthen the bonds within the association. Additionally, you can explore ways to leverage digital platforms to enhance communication and engagement, such as creating a community website or utilizing social media channels.
Maintenance and Upkeep
Some communities want to go into the new year prioritizing the maintenance of common areas and infrastructure to ensure the long-term value and appeal of the community.
Take time to set specific goals for routine inspections, repairs, and enhancements to landscaping, infrastructure, and common areas. These goals can guide your association to implement a preventative maintenance plan to address potential issues proactively, mitigating concerns before they evolve into major challenges and saving both time and resources in the long run.
