2010 Survey

What to do with the space and how to pay for it?

At the 2010 General Membership Meeting you asked the Board to survey your neighbors about the tennis and basketball court common area.  The survey was sent via US Postal Service with the ability to complete the survey online as well.

We had 91 responses to the survey.

The survey asked members to vote on two areas: 1) Options for the court area and 2) Options to fund the project.

1) Options for the court area

The Survey Question…What should be done with the common space that today includes two tennis courts and a basketball court.

– Tear up the whole area to create a green space or park

– Maintain, refurbish or rebuild the sport courts to include tennis, basketball and/or other sports

– Other

The Survey Results…

– Tear up the whole area to create a green space or park (All Park ) = 34

– Keep Basketball court only = 16

• Included specific mention in comments of getting rid of tennis courts

• Note: that this was NOT a choice in the survey, but so many votes had comments on this that a separate category was added for the results

– Maintain, refurbish or rebuild the sport courts to include tennis, basketball and/or other sports = 24

– Repair Existing = 7

– Other= 10

• Includes votes with comments like “no decision without a costing”, “whichever costs less”, remove crepe myrtles and all screens, sell courts to a club, boy scouts do work with a dog run, no dog run, no opinion,…

2) Options to fund the project

The Survey Question…Any solution to the park will come at a cost. Without committing to support either, which method of financing would you favor?

– Increase in dues

– A one-time assessment per household

The Survey Results…

– INCREASE DUES = 32

– ONE or TWO TIME ASSESSMENT = 21

– OTHER = 38

• Mix of dues and assessments, no change in dues or assessment, no opinion,.
