2018 Survey Results
During the late summer, a survey was initiated by the Planning Committee that covered demographics, amenity use, volunteerism, a new pool construction & clubhouse renovation, and transportation. We accepted responses via Survey Monkey and via written responses submitted to the office. We received 100 responses via Survey Monkey and 88 written responses for a total of 188 to this survey. We plan on publishing the survey results to the website for all to see, but here are some of the highlights.
Regarding demographics (Q2-Q3)…. Unfortunately, many survey takers didn’t respond to the questions regarding demographics, probably due to privacy reasons, so unfortunately, I think we will have to wait for the 2020 census to get any accurate data on the makeup of our community.
Regarding amenity use (Q4), by a wide margin, it is clear that most amenities are not heavily utilized by the membership. The two most heavily utilized amenities were the Condor Café and the Lounge, and yet only 54% of respondents utilized the café at least one time during the month and only 44% of the respondents utilized the lounge at least one time in the month.
Also, on the Condor Café (Q15), a whopping 91% of respondents agreed with the policy of allowing non-members to eat at the Condor Café.
Regarding volunteerism (Q11), almost 24% of respondents indicated that they would be willing to mentor younger community members. We need to get the names of these individuals forwarded to the appropriate committee chairs for follow-up.
Regarding the issue on whether the association should build a new year-round lap pool (Q16-Q17), only 38% of respondents agreed that the association should do this but over 63% of respondents stated that their annual assessments should not be increased even a single dollar to pay for it.
On the Clubhouse remodel (Q18), over 80% of the respondents agreed that the clubhouse should be remodeled including ADA compliance and plumbing and electrical updates.
Also, 80% of respondents agreed that the clubhouse update should be done on a phased pay-as-we-go system (Q19-Q20), with an average assessment increase of roughly $57 per year to pay for it. It should be noted that 36% of respondents indicated that no assessment increase should be made to pay for a new clubhouse (Q21).
Regarding a skateboard park, 76% disagreed with researching the feasibility of a building a skateboard park.
Regarding transportation (Q27-Q28), 4% of respondents indicated the need for transportation to local destinations due to disability or lack of other transportation, but 15% of respondents indicated that they would be willing to provide such transportation. Again, we need to get the names of these individuals to the appropriate committees.
The Oct. 13, 2018 recall election results are as follows: 530 voted to not recall; 468 voted to recall
