LVCA Board

Executive Committee members of the Lyon Village Citizens' Association (LVCA) are volunteers who meet monthly to represent the approximately 2,500 residents in our neighborhood before the County government, developers and businesses on issues such as zoning, crime, traffic calming, and parks. In addition, the Executive Committee plans annual events such as the December Holiday Party, the Halloween Parade and the 4th of July Parade and Picnic. A separate board manages the Community House and plans the annual Spaghetti Dinner.
