The mission of the Communications Committee is to facilitate communications among Ranch residents and owners.
The Communications Committee maintains this Web site and publishes the association newsletter, the Wilderness Watch, each month. The Committee also maintains the community's online telephone directory.
Editorial Policy
There are three types of content in the newsletter and on the Association's Web site:
  1. Official communications of Ranch policy and Board decisions. These communications are in the form of Wilderness Watch articles written by members of the WROA Board of Directors and committee chairs. Official communications also include the content of this Web site. Before being published, these materials may receive editing to correct typographical or grammatical errors; they are also formatted for consistency with other WROA published materials. Articles with inappropriate language may be returned to the author for revision, or with the approval of the Committee Chair or Board Liason, may be refused publication.

  2. Informal articles in the Watch regarding the weather, outdoor living, Idaho City schools, and similar topics. These articles are generally written by community volunteers or members of the WROA Communications Committee. Before being published, these materials may receive editing to correct typographical or grammatical errors. They are also formatted for consistency with other WROA published materials.

  3. SpeakOut! letters in the Wilderness Watch and advertisements on WROA.org. These are letters and ads of general interest to the Ranch community written for WR owners and residents. These materials are printed as submitted, although they may be formatted for consistency with other WROA published materials. Materials with inappropriate language will be returned to the author for revision.
InstantWatch! allows Ranch residents to receive special, timely messages about road conditions, water emergencies, and other important information. It is also used to announce the monthly publication of the Wilderness Watch.
Residents who have registered for this Web site and submitted their e-mail address(es) are automatically subscribed to InstantWatch!.
