The Facilities Planning Committee (FPC), comprised of nine (9) community members, volunteer their time to assist the Property Owners Association with a variety of projects and facilities related matters. Steve Libring is the chair and Jeanne O’Dell is the Board Liaison
They help with issues relating to parking and traffic concerns raised by members. It is due to their efforts, along with assistance from Steve Schneider, Director of Operations, that the Board was able to approve at their August 2020 meeting, the application of striping on Continental Way and Longhorn Drive to create a “buffer” zone. The new striping will assist with ensuring the safety of our members while walking and bicycling along these streets. As discussed at the Board Meeting, the speed limit on both these streets is 35mph. The Committee recommended the striping to be consistent with other 35mph streets within our community.
The Facilities Planning Committee also assists by recommending priorities and concepts for improvements to our amenities. This includes developing long range plans for ensuring the most effective preservation of our current amenities while planning for our future ones.
The Facilities Planning Committee takes to heart the principals adopted by the Board of Directors at the July 2020 meeting. In particular, the Board of Directors had determined that it is important to our community that we continue to enhance our unique identity.
One of the projects the Committee is currently working on exemplifies that philosophy. FPC has been asked to look at the center median at Canyon Lake Drive – South and prepare some concepts for review by the Board. There have many discussions over the years about the look of the median including whether the pine trees should be removed and replaced with mature trees that more represent the look and feel of our community.
The Committee has spent numerous hours researching all the options available brainstorming ideas such as landscape up-lighting which could change colors according to the season, creating a WOW factor with colorful landscaping, updating the look of the banner stand used by Clubs for announcing functions, creating a left turn “pocket” at Bluebird Dr. and using rock to create a dry river bed.
The Committee is interested in your ideas and looks forward to presenting their ideas at an upcoming Board meeting. Please email them at email@example.com.
