Crime rates in our community are typically lower than all the surrounding non-gated communities. The primary reason for this is our Security Patrol. Officers make random passes through our streets watching for unsafe conditions, and helping members with safety and security concerns. This patrol is paid for through the minimal dues, which are a fraction of the amount of the average gated community.
In addition to the security patrol, member dues pay for a small number of administrative expense, such as limited mailings, banking fees and maintenance of our website. The bulk of operations are done by our volunteer Board of Directors and Committees. WIRCA membership is not a requirement, but the vast number of the households opt to join.
