A Message from the Chairman    Once again, we are faced with some misrepresentations and off-base assumptions via Facebook that appear to be causing concern for a few members which perhaps necessitates some clarification for those members not monitoring the situation firsthand. As if the stress of dealing with COVID-19 isn’t currently enough, a few members are adding to the anxiety by misinforming others about costs, increased assessments, and runaway spending.
   As you may recall, the current remodeling project, approved as a master plan, was divided into phases. One of the primary reasons that phases were instituted was due largely in part to members supporting a “pay as we go” philosophy to avoid one large loan. Also, the phase-approach provides for later modifications to the plan for other phases in consideration of costs and the needs of the association.
   In adopting this “pay as we go” concept, the Board approved proceeding forward with Phases 1 and 2 as funding was available through existing reserve funds allocated for some of these expenses and retained earnings. These construction costs will not be paid by raising the assessments and assessments are not expected to be increased this coming year. The funds allocated will not significantly deplete the reserve fund.
   Phase 1 begins the first steps in making our clubhouse complex ADA-compliant and more accessible to our members. Phase 1 will include an ADA ramp to the lower level of our facility for foot traffic, golf carts, and delivery access to the Condor Cafe, recreation room, Pro Shop, golf course, and Concert on the Greens venue. A second ADA-compliant ramp will also be built to provide access to the top floor of the clubhouse to access the lounge, Pool Pavilion and Condor Room.
   Additionally, Phase 1 will include the demolition and removal of the old pool, grading, compacting, concrete retaining walls, additional decking and stairs for the clubhouse exterior, rest rooms accessible from new pool and (eventually) the ground floor of clubhouse, and required grading, demolition and material removal associated with the new rest rooms. The current costs for Phase 1 are $540,700.
   Phase 2 is the new pool that includes a spa, ADA chairs (handicap lifts), decking, ramps, fencing, gates, equipment storage, and a stub that can provide access to solar heating at a later date. The cost is currently $464,330. Recent allocation of funding for both phases also includes a 20% project contingency.
   As I mentioned in the recent Condor newsletter, the contracts have been approved, and were submitted prior to the pandemic, but the projects are on hold due to the virus mandates. There are no start dates and we have a payment schedule in our contract based on work performed with the first major payment for the pool not due until the completion of excavation along with the underground electrical and plumbing.
   Did the costs originally provided by the Facilities Task Force significantly exceed their estimates? They did. However, according to contractors, architects, and lenders, true costs of projects like these are never really known nor better estimates provided until plans are actually drawn and permits pursued beyond conceptual drawings. We have learned a valuable lesson to rely upon as we proceed with other phases in the future.
   Last year, I was an advocate to either repair the old pool or place a new pool in the old location. It now would not be prudent to repair the old pool compared to the costs for a new pool. The old location is not conducive to a larger and more modern pool and does not provide for improved ADA access nor more space for members. Although I am a little disappointed in the increased costs, I believe we can afford it and it is in our best interests financially to proceed with the new pool and better ADA accessibility after the pandemic as it will only serve to improve the complex and benefit the members. To delay these projects further might only increase the costs down the road.
   The plans for Phases 1 and 2 were never intended as first steps to transform the clubhouse complex into a luxurious country club - nor do they even resemble such - as these initial phases merely provide for improved accessibility and an amenity upgrade to better serve members based on previous surveys and member input in lieu of Bandaids, glue and duct tape.
   I hope this message has clarified some issues for you with respect to the allocation of funds for Phases 1 and 2 and pending construction.
Respectfully,
Bill Lewis II
PMCPOA Chairman
