THE PRESIDENT REPORTS
 

          I hope everybody has had a great summer so far and able to take some time to relax, travel, and spend time with family and friends.  For many, the daily pace will pick up with school starting.  This means busier streets with busses, more vehicles, and children along our roads.  All residents need to respect the safety and lives of our neighbors by driving at the speed limit and not blowing through the stop signs.

 

City public safety continues to be informed on our issues and concerns.  Related to this issue is our ongoing pursuit of sidewalks. The latest answer last month from the city is the lower sales tax collection amount has delayed our and other sidewalk projects with no estimated timeframe provided.  Understand and agree this is a high priority for our neighborhood and at the December annual meeting we will discuss this issue in detail and determine a community approach to move forward.    It is not as easy to just vote, approve, and build sidewalks as a community on our own, as we need to get approval for city property encroachment, high cost of sidewalks and determine stages and locations, future maintenance costs and owner, city priority list, and other issues. The annual meeting for residents of the Rapids will be held at 7pm in the clubhouse on 11 December. 

       

With the 88 residents who answered the survey so far, about half support replacing the existing pool with a larger pool, half support investigating cost for a playground area, and 2/3 support a paved path from the parking lot to the Greeneway. This does not eliminate long term projects and upkeep. It is important to understand the complexity, impact, expense and upkeep and any legal exposure entailed in any of these projects. We will discuss these in detail at the December annual meeting to provide more background and information for consideration.  Thank you for all residents who responded to the project survey sent out earlier this summer.  For those who did not receive the email or respond, feel free to participate at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RX9VDNF
