Bay Village Homeowners Association does not offer Homeowners Insurance to owners, nor do we maintain a list of homes for sale or rent.
The meetings of the Bay Village Homeowners Association are held each month on the third Tuesday at the YWCA at 340 East Beach Street in Watsonville. If the date, time, or location of the monthly meeting is changed, it will be noted on the calendar.
Monthly meetings are held in the dining room, accessible from the kitchen, through a door facing the parking area. There is a motion light that should come on as you approach that door, which is unlocked. If you go to the front entrance, that door is locked and we can’t hear you knock.
Meetings begin at 3 pm and all homeowners are welcome to attend and/or speak.
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.
