The Village of Kings Contrivance houses about 11,000 residents and is the third largest of the nine villages plus Town Center that make up Columbia. In 1977, the first neighborhood, Macgill's Common, was inhabited and the first village board was elected in April, 1978.
What is the Kings Contrivance Community Association?
It is a not-for-profit corporation that supports a range of services for the residents of our village. All residents 18 years or older are members of the Association. We elect a Village Board of Directors that establishes Association policies, and a village representative to the Columbia Council, that directs the Columbia Association. The Board hires a village manager to oversee the day to day operations of the village. Residents of Columbia pay an annual assessment to the Columbia Association that funds a portion of the money used to run the Association.
Mission Statement: The association represents the community of Kings Contrivance by advocating for residents, enforcing covenants, and building a sense of community.
