News from the Master Association

Good Afternoon,
 
If you haven’t been part of the conversations regarding a possible new pool in Canterberry I am sure you will be in the near future.  Below is a very quick recap and information on the continuing direction of the feasibility study of a new pool.
This study was initiated due to ongoing conversations and complaints from residents to the current and previous Master Board of Directors regarding overcrowding at the existing pool facility. The Master Board solicited the services of Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture (BRS) to conduct a feasibility study for a new pool within Canterberry Crossing.  BRS has been conducting this study and working with the Master Board since very early 2014. In addition to expanding the "swimmable area", the study also included options for additional community amenities such as a fitness center and community rooms as well as offices for CCMA staff (currently leased from Parker Station)
The Master Board along with BRS has come up with 4 possibilities of pool design that could be placed at Riva Ridge Park if the decision is made to move forward.   The four (4) current designs range from:
Option 1. An outdoor pool (3.5 months usability) with office space, community rooms and fitness center, approximate build cost of $5,930,000 (approximately$2296.00 per home or $91.52/quarter for 15 years) in addition to ongoing annual operating cost of $281.076.00 (approximately $28 per quarter) after the 15 year loan is paid off.    
  
Option 2. A Natatorium (indoor pool), fitness center, office space, community rooms, approximate cost of $8,050,000.00 (approximately$3117 per home or $140.74/quarter for 15 years) in addition to ongoing annual operating cost of $551,875.00 (approximately $54 per quarter) after the 15 year loan is paid off This pool would be open daily from 5 am to 10 pm year round. 
 
Option 3.1 An outdoor pool (3.5 months usability) and pool house (replica of existing CCMA Pool), approximate cost of $2,965.000.00 (approximately$1148.00 per home or $52.81/quarter for 15 years) in addition to ongoing annual operating cost of $160,000.00 (approximately $21 per quarter) after the 15 year loan is paid off.    
 
Option 3.2 Outdoor pool (3.5 months usability), pool house and offices (no community rooms, no fitness center) approximate cost of $4,025,000.00 (approximately$1559 per home or $64.31/quarter for 15 years) in addition to ongoing annual operating cost of $160,000.00 (approximately $21 per quarter) after the 15 year loan is paid off.   
 
 
All Board members and delegates should review the following sections of the Bylaws and Covenants of CCMA, in addition you may want to refresh your memory with the sub association Bylaws and Covenants as well:
 
Bylaws
Section IV  - Meetings of Members
Section V – Delegates
Section VI – Meetings of Delegates
Section VII – Board of Directors 7.2 (c. and e.)
 
Covenants
Section 4.5 Voting rights of Members
Section 4.6 Voting rights of Delegates
Section 4.7 Manner of Voting
Section 5.17 Power to Borrow money and mortgage
Section 8.17 Special Assessments
 
The current discussion has been that a loan will be procured for the cost of the build out of a pool if approved (a vote by the delegates). 
 
At the last meeting it was discussed that after the September 22, 2015 meeting,  a packet of information with a ballot be sent to all owners (thus allowing each home a vote and opportunity to direct their delegate).  This ballot will be self-addressed and stamped for return and will be drafted to allow owners to vote on an option of pool OR an option of “I don’t want a pool” and it will be clearly outlined that any “non response” will be considered a vote to be cast at the delegates discretion and as they deem appropriate.  These ballots will be separated by delegate district and each delegate will be given a copy of all ballots.
 
It is recommended that each delegate discuss the pool with their fellow owners, you can add to upcoming meeting agendas or hold a members meeting.   The Master Board requests that each delegate attend the September 22, 2015 meeting at Black Bear 6 pm to gather as much information as possible.
 
There were between 75-100 homeowners in attendance at the meeting on August 11thIf you were not able to make the August 11th meeting please mark your calendars for September 22, 2015.
