The Civic Association serves the neighborhood by providing events, activities and services that bring the residents together and make Lakewood Forest a better place to live. Homeowners support the Civic Association through a voluntary $10 donation paid directly to the Civic Association. The board members and other volunteers use those funds judiciously for the betterment of the residents and the neighborhood as a whole. Every year, the Civic Association organizes and co-hosts numerous community events with the Lakewood Forest Fund (the HOA) as well as with the Lakewood Residents’ Club on occasion.
The all-volunteer Civic Association board meets monthly, generally on the second Monday of the month, at 7pm at the Lakewood Forest Fund office. The annual meeting and election of board officers takes place in October at the Lakewood Residents’ Club. All residents are welcome and encouraged to attend and participate as volunteers in our events and activities.
