Over the past year, the Board of Directors for Lakemont Cove has aspired to more actively engage with residents while working through the day-to-day challenges of maintaining our wonderful community. A goal of the Board has been to utilize the strengths of our residents by creating working committees to take on key activities and projects that will lead to a stronger, better, and more cherished community for years to come. In the past year, residents have formed committees to address Landscaping, Clubhouse Renovation, and Bathroom upgrades, all of which are having a positive impact on Lakemont Cove. Our Social Committee continues to plan and deliver excellent opportunities for Lakemont Cove.
In this regard, we are announcing that we have formed an Infrastructure Committee to address both the short- and long-term needs of the physical space that is Lakemont Cove. Pat Moran and I are currently serving as the co-chairs of this Committee while also serving on the Board of Directors. Lakemont Cove residents currently serving on the Committee are Jennifer Dimming, Barbara Taylor, Frank Labletta, and Steve Long. Bob Roehrig is serving as a technical adviser to the Committee. If you have an interest in participating on the Infrastructure Committee, please reply to the email addresses at the bottom of this message. Persons with construction or contractor backgrounds would certainly add value to the committee. We are also very interested in adding some year-round residents to the Committee who can be on-site while projects are happening.
Our goal is to have the committee fully organized in the near future. In the meantime, we want to make you aware that we are actively engaged in two key activities that fall under the scope of the committee.
We are working with contractors and are receiving bids to complete two key short-term projects that are important to the welfare and safety of Lakemont Cove. The first is the repair and or replacement of concrete in areas that pose a safety hazard to residents or guests. The second is the repair of faulty lighting around the pool and the pool parking lot. In both cases, it has been a challenge to find contractors because of the hurricane. As of today, we have identified contractors and are receiving bids, and we aim to have work begin in the near term. We are also gathering information for longer-term infrastructure projects and will keep you informed of these as they develop.
The Board will soon complete a study of our Reserve Funds and a projection forward of our financial situation regarding these funds. Once we understand the financial viability of the Reserve fund, we will have a clearer view of our ability to plan for the next 5-10 years of work within the community.
As always, we thank you for your support of our beautiful Lakemont Cove community, and we look forward to sharing more with you at future Board Meetings and in future email communications.
