Mission Statement & Board Priorities

Mission Statement

The mission of Horseshoe Valley Property Owners Association is to enhance and sustain our community’s unique qualities though inclusivity, communication, community events and celebration, mindful advocacy and positive partnerships with government, local businesses, and other community groups.

Board Priorities:

  1. Actively foster constructive working relationships with all levels of Government for responsible growth that promotes our vision of a safe, four-season recreational lifestyle within the Horseshoe Valley Community.
  2. Look for opportunities as pandemic protocols ease to organize and support community events and celebrations while embracing diversity and inclusiveness.
  3. Identify further opportunities to leverage digital media and ways to provide information to our membership on multiple platforms to enhance communication and community engagement.
  4. Develop and foster meaningful relationships and collaboration with other community groups in Oro-Medonte and Simcoe County.
