VIDA Community Update: April 2024

More homes are on the way: construction continues on single-family homes, Los Arcos is now leasing apartments, and townhomes are set to start construction later this year.

2024 is shaping up to be a banner year for VIDA. New events, outdoor spaces, and amenities are in the works, which are giving residents opportunities to gather. Meanwhile, progress continues on the construction of the new University Health campus and implementation of VIDA’s landscaping plan.

VIDA Hosts Its First Block Party

In March, VIDA hosted its first block party at Ana Park. The block party gave residents an opportunity to meet their neighbors while enjoying barbecue from food truck vendor 3B BBQ. The community has quarterly events where neighbors enjoy meeting each other. Homeowner orientations for new and existing owners occur monthly.
