Resident Commissioner

The resident advisory board members serve a three-year term. When there is no interest to serve on the board from a community, that position will remain vacant and that community is not represented.

Resident Advisory Board (RAB) members attend the monthly meetings in their respective community to discuss the happening of the quarterly RAB meetings and to gather concerns/questions for the Housing Authority from the residents.
