We have a number of Committees working on issues in RHE. If you are interested in helping out with any of the committees listed below, please contact the committee or let a board member know.

We welcome all the help we can get!

Standing Committees are defined in the RHENA Bylaws. These committees should be appointed within 90 days of the Annual meeting each year. They include:

    • Nominating Committee -- the Nominating Committee determines the slate of candidates for Board positions each year. The Committee presents the slate of candidates to the Board prior to the Annual Meeting and conducts the election at the Meeting. This Committee is also responsible for filling any positions vacated mid-year. If you are interested in being a member of the Nominating Committee, or in serving on the Board, email

    • Financial Review Committee -- the Financial Review Committee reviews the records maintained by the Treasurer prior to the Annual Meeting each year. The Committee presents its findings to the Board and to the Association members at the Annual Meeting. This Committee is also responsible for reviewing the records any time the office of Treasurer is transferred from one person to another. If you are interested in serving on the Financial Review Committee, email

Ad Hoc Committies have been established by the Board to handle specific objectives. They include:

Community Committee -- These groups address issues that help bring the residents of RHE closer together as a community.

    1. Welcome -- This group delivers Welcome Packets to new neighbors. Packets are assembled as needed. Email if you would like one for yourself or for a new neighbor. (Delivery time is dependent on availability of committee members.) You are welcome to join us when we go to meet a new neighbor!

    2. Activities -- This group assists with a yearly party and other activities during the year. Email if you have ideas or would like to help.

Neighborhood Preservation Committee -- These groups address issues that could affect the appearance, safety or livability of RHE.

    1. Traffic Circles -- This group maintains the five traffic circles in RHE and the bump-outs at Lind/Campbell and Olsen/Ft Lowell, by trimming the trees & bushes, picking up litter, and making repairs when necessary. If you have a problem to report or you would like to help, email

    2. Real Estate Listings -- This group reviews listings for properties on the market in RHE watching for inaccurate information. For example, our zoning allows one "dwelling unit" per property. If a listing mentions a guest house that can be rented, that is inaccurate (there are some exceptions). Or if a listing mentions lots of parking for employees of a home business, that is inaccurate (certain types of home businesses are allowed, but having employees is not). To contact the committee, email

Communications Committee -- These groups work to establish and maintain communication among the residents of RHE.

    1. Listserv -- The Listserv (email list) provides residents a means to reach other residents without having to know everybody's email address. Send email to to be added to the list or if you have concerns or questions.

    2. Newsletter -- The newsletter is usually published quarterly. Articles by RHE residents or businesses are welcome. Email if you would like to contribute an article or write a Letter to the Editor.

    3. Website -- Email if you have suggestions, questions or concerns, or if you would like to help.
