March 13th, 2023 - Clubhouse's Construction Begins
We are happy to announce that the construction of the clubhouse/gym has begun. With the money that has been raised so far, the board elected to start the build of the clubhouse. We didn’t want the money to sit in the bank not earning any considerable interest, while inflation was eroding our purchasing power. Therefore, instead of waiting till after we raise all the money in 2024 and build afterwards, we decided to use the money we already have collected to build the clubhouse structure itself. We still will need to wait for the 2024 special assessment to finish the whole project. So this week, our contractor, Brad Gilmore, brought his first contractor, Outlaw Excavations & Land Management, and did the site prep. We look forward to working with Brad on this exciting project.
