About Us

The CHPH Community Association is your connection to what is going on in your community. Whether it is a new development, sports or recreation program, community safety initative, or information about new projects and initiatives that impact your community, our goal is to help make that link for you. The Board members and volunteers are eager to chat and make the community a better place. 

As a resident of the area, your input and involvement are welcome. We encourage you to bookmark our site and to become a member today. One of the best ways to meet your neighbors is to become involved in your local community association. We are always looking for people who care about their community, and who have time to help make it a better place in which to live, recreate and raise our families.
