The update of the Green
Oaks entry and Jackson/Glade roundabout has been a priority set by the
neighborhood both on our survey and at the Annual meeting in April 2014. The
project has progressed to the point where we have architectural drawings and
these plans have been submitted to contractors for bid.
drawings can be found on the web site
www.brookmeadows.org , or at this link:
If you prefer to review
a hard copy of the plans, these can be viewed by contacting Walter Aue at
4608 Green Oaks Drive. As background, the Board solicited feedback from a
number of neighbors throughout this process. They have helped shape the
overall project and approved the final architectural designs.
Going forward with the
project will provide a significant upgrade to the neighborhood while also
achieving our objectives:
lighting on the Brook Meadows signage
electrical and irrigation expense
visibility and “curb appeal” to Brook Meadows
For example, the project
will utilize LED lights, install drip irrigation and shift to drought
tolerant plants. The Brook Meadows signage at Green Oaks will be "angled"
and well illuminated.
At the Annual meeting in
April 2014 we indicated changes to the entrance at Green Oaks and the Glade
Road/Jackson roundabout would be presented at the April 2015 meeting. This
was under the assumption it would take a year to obtain acceptable
architectural plans and secure financing.
After 7 months of hard
work by many folks, the Board has determined there are compelling reasons to
initiate this work NOW!
The architectural plans are complete (and look great!)
The project has come in well below original cost projections
We can pay for the project with current cash reserves – no loan
construction bid prices are considerably cheaper in winter
It is this 4th
point that drives the decision to move forward with the project. Waiting
until spring will increase costs needlessly.
Given these facts,
the Board has voted unanimously to move forward with the Glade Road entry
and Glade/Jackson roundabout update this winter.
If you have questions or
wish more information please contact the Board at
firstname.lastname@example.org. We plan
to sign the contract on December 1st and begin construction
Hopefully we’ll “see
dirt flying” soon!
