July 2018 News and Updates
The art of the possible – a preliminary view of our new clubhouse!
Dear members, we have made significant decisions and progress since our last general meeting in April. Most notably, the clubhouse debris has been removed, and we hired an architect and builder to work with our rebuilding team to redesign and rebuild the clubhouse. Preliminary design graphics are shown here. We are very excited about the improvements being incorporated into our new clubhouse design, including a club room that will be more open and usable every day, and an improved guest entrance and vehicle passenger drop off area. We are nearly complete with the necessary soil measurements and property surveys. Currently, we anticipate starting construction at year’s end.
Temporary Reopening – We have been working with our architect, builder, pool company, county health, and city building & safety professionals to get an approved plan in place to allow us to open the pool temporarily while we rebuild the clubhouse. We have made significant progress, including getting approvals from the county, but we currently do not have a firm reopening date. Our best estimate is that we could reopen this fall or near the end of this year.
Dues – During our July meeting, the membership voted to reinstate dues for all members at $75.00 per quarter. This amount was selected to cover our current operating expenses. Every penny we collect will help us save money to build the new clubhouse we all want. The membership also agreed to consider and vote on offering an incentive to sustaining members when we reopen, as a sign of gratitude for helping us through this difficult time. None of us enjoys paying dues for a pool we cannot currently enjoy, but as members we also understand the responsibility we share to rebuild the club we love, and as you’ve seen, it will be even better than it was before.
Annual Meeting – Our Annual Meeting will be 7:00 pm October 19, at Ventura Missionary Church Room 325. We will elect directors, get updates on reconstruction, temporary opening, and dues. Please consider running for the board and helping us guide our club into the future!
