President’s Message February 2015

At the January BOD meeting the directors adopted a Resolution prohibiting certain activities in an effort to prevent criminal activity in our community. Also known as a Crime Free Program, it deals with certain criminal behaviors in an attempt to make our community safer for everyone. A copy of this resolution is in this newsletter and I urge everyone to please read it.

The BOD had approved a bid to completely refurbish the Windmill Park pool bath rooms. The Reserve study had allocated $16,000 to perform the work with the bid coming in over $62,000.00. We were able to get it down to roughly $50,000.00 and were going to proceed by making up the difference with other monies. After approving it the contractor came back with his “real” bid which drove the cost up another 25%. We chose to postpone the work on this project and will be seeking other bids but will be moving forward with redoing the showers at Windmill and the Community Center pools. There have been mold issues brought to our attention as well as the unsightly calcium build up on the existing tiles.

A number of residents have been curious about all the digging and construction going on the south side of the office and pool. The BOD has approved putting in a splash pad for the kids to enjoy this summer. It will include a number of water features for the children to cool off with this summer- it should be a great addition to our Association and provide the children here in CRCA hours of fun. There is a mock up in the office if you are curious. We are hoping that the contractor meets our schedule of having it done by March 1st when Windmill Pool reopens.
