Clubhouse Update

The excellent weather this week has allowed for some progress on the exterior of the Clubhouse. The first of the new concrete walkways were poured today as well as our new curbs. Trellis footings are complete as well as trenching for electrical and irrigation. It’s looking like another great weather week ahead with opportunities to continue forward.

We are not sure when the state and county guidelines will permit us to re-open but we are looking forward to seeing you all again!!

Nellie Gail Ranch Operations In Response to State Executive Order

Consistent with the stay at home Executive Order we are prioritizing essential services.  The Nellie Gail Ranch Tennis and Swim Center and Association office have been closed and will re-open upon approval of the state.

We request you defer submittal of architectural improvement applications and Notices of Completion until we resume full operations.

Nellie Gail Ranch Equestrian Center staff are providing essential services in the care of our boarder’s horses and will continue to work. We will work with our Association vendors to provide service for urgent needs.  Anything that is not deadline sensitive, health and safety or property damage related will be deferred until normal operations resume.  The Executive Order did not provide an end date so we will be monitoring.

Many of our staff are performing critical time-sensitive functions from home and we are monitoring vendors to be sure that critical maintenance continues to be performed as needed. If you have any questions or concerns during our office closure you may reach me at bmitchell@nelliegailranch.org. If you have an urgent or emergency need you may reach General Manager Brian Mitchell by cell phone at 949-395-0742.
