As the pool project nears completion, the Board of Directors would like to thank you for your patience and your support of this large community project. First and foremost, know that The Board shares your excitement and is anxiously pushing for the pool to re-open as fast as possible, so the membership can enjoy this newly renovated amenity.
In hearing your request for increased communication relating to this project, the Board of Directors also want to share some new information relating to the pool facility opening process. In anticipation of our opening this summer and to power the new pool equipment a custom electrical control center was ordered 3 months ago, immediately after the relevant permits were obtained. Unfortunately, we’ve recently learned that the company providing the electrical service equipment was not able to source the materials needed and adding a 10-week delay to the electrical service equipment anticipated arrival.
Given the supply chain shortage we are experiencing on a national level, this delay is challenging to navigate. However, the Board and our Pool Project Contractor are currently working on sourcing the materials needed to bypass this wait period and expedite the opening as quickly as possible.
With this new information the Board regretfully does not foresee a summer opening being achievable. That being said, the Board of Directors remains optimistic that our vendors will source alternate solutions, so the facility can be opened sooner than the initially ordered equipment would permit. Once additional information becomes available and opening dates are confirmed the Board will make additional announcements.
Again, the Board of Directors wants to thank you for your patience and support during this project. As members of the community, we are all looking forward to the re-opening of this updated amenity.

Library Side Fountain Repairs
As you may have noticed the Library side fountain has been down and non operational. Repairs were approved in early part of this year as our vendor ordered supplies in February of 2022. All parts have now been received and construction on the repair to the fountain is under way beginning June 20th, 2022. Working with the national supply chain challenges sourcing the correct parts and panels was a delayed process. The Board is excited to see the fountain back operational very soon and in great working order for years to come.
