Me, again. Just want to update you on a couple of things.
Governors Decree – After reading this carefully, I see no need to close the pool or tennis courts at this time, with only a few modifications. Keep practicing social distancing and limiting the number of people in the area to ten. Please refrain from bringing in guests from outside the neighborhood. Two reasons, we want to maximize our residents use of the pool, and we want to limit the pool of people to whom we expose ourselves. I do believe exercise and relaxation in a safe place are essential but if you do not, I encourage you and respect your decision to take more restrictive measures at this time.
If you are over 60 and would like someone to run errands, help with yard work or shop for you, we have some neighborhood volunteers. Let me know your name and phone number and I will have someone call you for details.
**I went to Publix today and noticed several of us were covering our mouths with our fishing Buffs. Great substitute for a mask if you don’t have one.
Status of Projects – The tennis courts are resurfaced and striped. We also had to replace the nets and net cranks as both were either broken or in bad shape. The French drain that keeps water puddling on the court is the only item left to complete the tennis courts. They are open for play, however. We already have foursome of residents who have tested out the pickleball courts (the blue lines inside the tennis courts) and love it! If you want to learn the game let me know. If you don’t know what it is Google it. It’s very popular.) My husband has donated new paddles and outdoor balls for new players who would like to learn to play. He will happily teach you!
The white fence on Gulf Beach Highway has been straightened but requires a little more work from the vendor. They should be out next week to complete that.
The research and pricing are being worked on for other projects but I am thinking we will slow it down to limit the number of non-residents in neighborhood. Some of our contractors are not as diligent about watching their speeds and we have a lot of children and residents walking and biking in the streets.
That’s it for now. Stay safe and healthy!
