WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1971, when a group of homeowners recognized that an active program, characterized by awareness, concern and involvement would be critical to preserve and protect the quality of life and environment of the community, the Vinings Village Homeowners Association has been the guiding force in maintaining Vinings unique village ambiance.
Through four decades, the Vinings Village Homeowners Association has faced a variety of challenges from zoning to traffic and from over-commercialization to historic preservation. Until 2010, Vinings was simply a part of unincorporated Cobb County. Through a collaboration between the Vinings Village Homeowners Association and Cobb County Commissioners; Vinings Village has been recognized in the Cobb County Comprehensive Plan. Today, the VVHA partners with Cobb County Board of Commissioners as well as State of Georgia elected officials in bringing solutions to issues through cooperative problem solving.
The genesis of the organization resulted from the real estate development boom of the 1970's when developers attempted to circumvent zoning codes in order to construct high density apartments and attached town homes. Brandy Station would be a sub-division of high-rise apartments, had it not been for the diligence of the fledgling Vinings Association who fought to keep the R30 zoning that gives Vinings Village the intimate quality enjoyed by by its residents.
Currently, the focus of the Association is on preserving and maintaining the character of Historic Vinings Village; its environmentally protective zoning which distinquishes it from other parts of Cobb County, and its small town ambiance.
