President's Message

Dear fellow residents of Discovery Bay,

 As a proud working mom and President of the Discovery Bay Community Services District Board of Directors, I want to extend a warm message to all the amazing families in our cherished town. It is an honor to represent and serve you, understanding firsthand the unique challenges and joys that come with balancing work and family life.

Discovery Bay holds a special place in my heart as a community that values the well-being of every family. I am dedicated to making our town a place where working families  like mine  can thrive, while ensuring that our entire community feels supported and cherished.

Within our Special District jurisdiction, we diligently oversee essential services such as water, wastewater, lighting, landscaping, parks, and recreation. However, we also recognize the significance of prioritizing security and peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Although we do not have direct control over law enforcement services, please know that our Town staff is always available to assist you in reaching out to the appropriate agencies should any security concerns arise. Your safety and the safety of your family is our utmost priority.

In addition to security, my goal as  Board President is to foster a family-oriented environment in Discovery Bay. We strive to provide high-quality water and wastewater services at affordable costs, along with an array of recreational programs catering to all age groups. Our family parks boast a wide range of amenities, allowing every member of your family to find something enjoyable. Whether it's visiting the dog park, engaging in a game of tennis or pickleball, or spending quality time at the newly renovated pool there is always something exciting happening for you and your loved ones.

Discovery Bay takes immense pride in upholding strong fiscal responsibility, effective sustainability practices, and transparent governance. In fact, we have earned the distinguished "Platinum Level" certification as a "District of Distinction." Out of the numerous Special Districts in California, only 12 have achieved this remarkable recognition, highlighting our commitment to excellence and accountability.

I understand the importance of communication in our busy lives. That's why I encourage you to visit our website at, where you can find valuable information that can support you and your family. By signing up for our email blasts, you can stay informed about important updates and announcements.

I am here to serve you, and I look forward to creating a nurturing and supportive environment where families can flourish.
