HISTORY:

Various members of the Association have over years volunteered to serve on this committee. Early efforts were focused on maintaining the front entry, and performing needed cleanup of the Park Area, Tract 'F'. Tract 'P', otherwise known as the Diplomat Drive area was landscaped with turnover funds from the Developer. Misunderstandings occured over the maintenance of the non-landscaped areas, specifically Tract 'B', Tract 'F', etc. Attempts have been made in the past to reshape the natural common areas into landscaped areas. This was a mistake. No removal or cutting of plants and trees within the Natural Common areas cannot be done without the specific permission of the Board of directors. The Board of Directors is responsible for all common areas, to make sure that all members of the association will enjoy them for now and in the future. The committee was originally formed to save the Association expenses related to the maintenance of the grounds. When there were approximately 40 residences, volunteers were not difficult to obtain. Several cleanup and landscape events were organized to improve the front entrance appearance. As the number of residences increased, the number of volunteers decreased somewhat proportionally. Perhaps the fact that more residences meant more assessment revenue somewhat negated the need for saving money. Anyway, the number of volunteers and/or committee members decreased to vitually one person doing a minimum amount. The following Map of the Common Grounds, A through O shows all the areas that the Association is responsible for. The largest common area is of course the Park Area


PRESENT:

Contractors have been hired to cut the grass and maintain the Sprinkler system. Essentially the gate which is passively indirectly part of the nission of the committee requires little maintenance other than maintaining the assess/keycode list. The gate demands attention when there is a failure or malfunction of the system or, as has happened in the past, damage occurs.
