Who Does BVHA Serve?

BVHA serves all Bay Village Homeowners of record.  Bay Village  Homeowners are residents 55+ and/or those who own rental property.   Renters also enjoy the Village tranquility and can work to improve the  quality of our neighborhoods:  Renters must be 55+.  Watchfulness of  neighbors is very effective.  The more we come together to solve  problems, the more united and strong our voices will be in maintaining  our senior housing status.  It takes perseverance.

Seniors are one of the largest voting groups in the  City.  We have a voice!  Attend Council meetings when called upon.   Attend meetings with the Santa Cruz County Supervisor, our advocate in  organizing so that we remain a senior community and enjoy our homes in  Bay Village.
