The seat was left vacant in October by Beth Bond.
Tara Preserve’s Community Development District board welcomed a new member after a vote at Tuesday’s meeting.
Resident David Woodhouse was voted in unanimously from eight candidates.
Beth Bond resigned from the board in October, leaving a seat open. The board advertised the open position after November’s meeting.
During the meeting, each applicant was allowed five minutes to speak about their qualifications and interests on the board. After, Supervisor Joe Mojica nominated Woodhouse.
"His background was one of the reasons I nominated him," he said. "He knows the area and he knows quite a bit about aquatics."
Woodhouse has lived in Tara since 2004. He serves ad the chairman of the Master Architectural Review Committee. He is a registered and certified professional geologist and an engineer.
Currently, Woodhouse owns his own part-time consultant business, Woodhouse Geosciences. He works on toxic tort cases.
"I've observed some situations where my background could be an asset," he said. "We're looking at an evolving neighborhood. The infrastructure is getting old; there are upgrades needed."
