The following is a summary of regular community events that you may like to make note of. These events and others are normally posted on the "Community Calendar".
Board of Directors (BOD) Meetings - are typically held once a month, but some months there are no meetings. The dates for these meetings are normally set by the BOD at the previous meeting so that members can plan if they want to attend.
Open Forum - At each Board Meeting time is allowed for residents who wish to address the Board to speak. If attending and you wish to speak, add your name to the "sign-up" sheet on the table at the door.

10/27/2016 The Community Website update is just now being completed. (More detail under "Current Projects" above). It is our hope that this new and more modern website will add value to the homes in our community by making information more available to those who market homes in Buckingham Estates and by creating a more professional and desirable first impression for those considering living here.
Any ideas you have to improve it or photos you would like to submit for our portfolios are welcome. Let us know if you come across any links that don't work.
