The Venetian Gardens

Homes Association was formed as a benevolent association under Missouri Law on June 4, 1946. John Banzhaf became the first president of the Homes Association.
The Homes Association oversees the lake, the dam, the beach area, Mayor’s Park and the common areas surrounding the lake. All homeowners are automatically members and are assessed annual dues of $295.00 (This is a mandatory legal requirement).
An annual membership meeting is held in October. Budgets are presented, dues are voted on and five Board members are elected to two-year staggered terms. A second membership meeting is held in April. The Board of Directors meet once a month.
Each month the community’s newsletter, The Houston Laker, is hand delivered to each home and provides current information on various activities.
The responsibility of the Venetian Gardens Homes Association and each member involves the health and welfare of our lake. This encompasses several programs which involve the Watershed Management Committee monitoring upstream development, an egg shaking program to control the goose population, managing plants and monitoring the fish population.

We hope you enjoy your stay.
The Board of Directors
