Clubhouse Update

We are on the final stretch to completion of the Clubhouse exterior. The pavers leading to the Clubhouse entry have been set in place and the roof tiles displaced by the demo are being installed. This week and last the stucco and base color coat went on with building painting scheduled for next week then the scaffolding will come down. The new gate at the Tennis entry will also go in next week and very soon our members will be able to access the Clubhouse via the building entry again!

COVID-19 Awareness and Physical Distancing at Parks, Trails and the Recreation Center

As we continue to monitor the spike in COVID-19 cases statewide we take this opportunity to remind our homeowners to continue to be mindful of the inherent risks involved with gatherings and use of the Nellie Gail Ranch trails, parks, and the recreation center. We continue to mitigate risk by implementing heightened sanitization of contact surfaces. We also encourage our homeowners to take action, be mindful, and adhere to state and county guidance and Centers for Disease Control guidelines related to the wearing of masks, gloves as may be applicable and maintaining physical distancing while using our common area facilities.

Most importantly please stay home if sick and practice proper hygiene procedures before and after using Nellie Gail Ranch facilities including washing of hands and disinfecting any surfaces you may come in contact with.

Updated Tennis & Swim Club Schedule and Temporary Use Rules

As we extend our hours and allow more recreational activities to take place consistent with the state guidance regarding re-opening, we ask our homeowners and club members to guard against complacency. The state and county are encouraging the re-opening of businesses while at the same time warning of the continued need to take appropriate precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19. We welcome back our homeowners and club members while at the same time asking for heightened careful adherence by our homeowners and club members to guidance related to masks, sanitation, and physical distancing. Please don’t just rely on others to be a good example in physical distancing. BE the good example, while at the same time enjoying the recreational and social activities you love here at the Nellie Gail Ranch Tennis and Swim Club.
