Residents at Simple Life have the opportunity to get involved in their community in a meaningful way, by joining one of the Envoy Groups. Each group has a specific purpose, and volunteers can join the initiative and get to know their neighbors while contributing to their community. It’s the perfect opportunity for people to use their skills and interests or develop new ones. Envoy Groups might vary slightly in each community. Below are some of the current groups we offer across Lakeshore, The Village and The Hamlet!
The communication Envoy is responsible for keeping residents in-the-know. They are the keepers of the information, there to help residents understand community guidelines. Communication Envoys can act as a connection between management and the rest of the residents, to ensure proper and healthy discussion about wants, needs and changes. This group is suitable for those who appreciate rules and processes, like organization and are on the more extroverted side.
This Envoy Group is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, those who love plants, produce and gardening. Each of our communities is equipped with a lovely produce garden, and the Garden Envoy is responsible for growing and maintaining fruits and vegetables throughout the season. The entire community reaps the benefits of the delicious produce grown, as they all get to take some of it home! The Garden Envoys distribute produce to their neighbors after their newest creations are fully grown.
There’s no need for everyone to waste their space holding onto tools for quick fixes. So, Simple Life created a community tool shed where residents can share whatever tools they might need. The Improvement Envoy maintains a check-in, check-out system, assisting all residents in obtaining what they might need, and ensuring all tools make their way back to the shed.
Dog Park Envoy
Calling all pet parents! This one is pretty self-explanatory. The dog park envoy is responsible for maintaining the dog park. They are the ones who make sure that all of the four-legged friends around the neighborhood have the perfect place to play. They keep it clean, make sure its properly manicured, and have the tub ready for bath time after a fun game of fetch.
The social envoy is perfect for the social butterfly. This group is in charge of planning parties, gatherings and events of all kinds! They are the ones who help celebrate the holidays, put on potlucks, plan trivia night or set up live music for the entire community to enjoy. Some events are completely resident planned, others are planned by management. The Social Envoy can take the wants of their neighbors to the team and get new events put on the calendar! They also help welcome new residents to the community.
