Special Meeting to Review Plan to Reopen Recreation Facilities

We have been monitoring the state and county press conferences regarding ongoing business closures and reopening discussions. We have also reviewed reports of local recreation facilities who are making moves to reopen their clubs. We are currently preparing our own plan for a phased reopening and are scheduling a Zoom video/conference call on Monday, May 11, 2020, at 6:00 pm to review a draft plan and schedule for reopening the recreation facilities. We want our homeowners, Tennis Members, Pickleball Members, and Swim Center Members to review our proposed plan for reopening and provide an opportunity for you to provide input. We know many people are ready to start participating in their sports of choice again, while others remain concerned about potential public exposure. We want to create a plan that addresses both perspectives and provides you with an opportunity to give input.

Please put the date of May 11, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. on your calendar. We will send a link to the meeting next week. Meanwhile, please safely enjoy our trails and open space and what looks to be a beautiful weekend.

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!!

We are optimistic that the interior of the Clubhouse will be complete by the end of March.  Work pending as of the end of February includes final cabinet installation, wood staining, countertop installation, fireplace stonework and finally, carpet. All work is in process and scheduled and the Clubhouse interior is really coming together nicely. Come on down and take a look at the progress, play some pickleball or tennis and take a swim.

In the last few months, we have focused on completing the interior so our Members can begin enjoying the benefits of the new interior. Work is scheduled to commence on the exterior of the building and the parking lot on March 9th. We will send further scheduling updates via our This Week in Nellie Gail Ranch e-mails.
