Maintenance Facility Project

Dear Member,

The Maintenance Facility project has been slow to get started, but we expect it to ramp up throughout the month of December. On the plus side, we still anticipate completion by the end of February at the latest.I would like to reassure all of you that the area will look much better than it does now, and once the clusia fills back in, it will screen the building.

Of course, we are only in Phase 1 which is site work and surrounding buildings. Phase 2, which is the renovation of the main building, is tentatively scheduled for Nov 1 of 2019.

To recap, Phase 1 will include installing a pipe in the culvert laterally next to SRB and paving over it, resulting in brand new usable space for parking. At that time, we will bring the employee’s cars off the street and back into the facility. In January, we will have a new roofed steel building for fuel tanks and a water reclamation unit, and the materials storage area should be completed. The area of the entire facility will be expanded and cleaned up, and we will work on moving any areas that collect green waste or discarded equipment out of sight. Finally, we will work to cover it all back up again!

In Phase 2, the existing pole barn will be refurbished and expanded to house more equipment, and to expand the deteriorating office and employee break, locker, and restrooms.  The leaky roof and gutters will be replaced, and insulation will be installed in the ceiling to reduce the temperature of the building. A protective block base will be installed around the exterior, and the entire facility repaved.

I thank you all in advance for your patience throughout this project. Pardon our dust.

This will be a major improvement for the community, and even though you will rarely see the actual facility, the results will be visible on the golf course!

GCM project starting Tuesday

Dear Spring Run Member,

Just a note to let you know that the Golf Course Maintenance Facility Phase 1 project will begin tomorrow, Tuesday Nov 13. You may notice more increased activity and construction vehicles coming and going over the next few months. Also, the staff will be parking along the street until such time that the new parking area has been constructed. We anticipate this project lasting through February.

Phase 1 is the reconfiguration of the maintenance site to make better use of the existing space, and to make room for materials bins. A new fueling station will replace the 20 year old rusting tank, and a new wash station will be installed to improve efficiency and to be more environmentally responsible with the chemical runoff. Finally, a new sand silo will be installed to ensure top dressing sand stays dry and to improve the logistics of storage and loading.

Phase 2 is slated to start next November 2019, and will involve renovations to the existing building.

Feel free to reply with any questions. Thank you.

Interior Redecoration Project Update

Dear Spring Run Member,

I want to thank you for your patience while we finalize the Clubhouse interior redecoration. By now, we all just want it to be done already. Well, we are almost there!

There seems to be a lot of misinformation regarding the balance of the project, so I thought a short note might clear things up.

All those old chairs and tables from the Grill that are sitting in the Lakeview Room will be gone Wednesday. Habitat for Humanity will be picking them up tomorrow. That was the soonest we could get them here. We apologize for the inconveniences experienced by bridge players and associations trying to hold meetings.

The artwork and window treatments will be hung Wed and Thurs of this week. We are still waiting on the new signage.

Finally, the Lobby furniture will all be changed out soon. We are not keeping any of it. However, we have it there until the new stuff arrives. Unfortunately, the new furniture is coming directly from the factory in Wilmington, NC. The flooding from Florence backed up their production and shipping, but we still anticipate a mid-October delivery.

If you have any questions, feel free to reply!

Tables & Chairs

Dear Members,

 

We received our new chairs and tables this morning and we are left with 120 chairs and 22 tables to store. After exhausting all avenues for commercial re-use, we have decided to offer them to our members and staff beginning this morning. The distribution is first come, first serve. If you are interested, please email Iva Sokolik at communications@springrun.com. There will be a limit of 8 chairs and two tables per unit until they are gone. Any chairs or tables remaining after Friday at 5 PM will be donated to charity.

No other decorations or furnishings will be offered at this time. Artwork will be hung next week, and we expect a number of items will be reused. Some items will go to the Spring Run Charitable Foundation for auction if they are interested, and some can go to the members and staff. Details on these items have yet to be determined.

Thanks,

Mike

Condo’s Garbage Recycle

Dear Members,

It has come to my attention that the Condo associations of Sunset Stream, Streamside, and Winding Stream are having problems with people dumping garbage into their recycle bins.  The recycle bins are the being tagged by Waste Pro and not being picked up. Recycle bins and garbage dumpsters are for the exclusive use of that neighborhood’s residents, and not to be used by other communities.  Please make sure your guests and/or tenants know that they are not allowed to use the other association’s garbage disposal areas. The clubhouse has a dumpster that you may use if you or your tenants needs to dispose of their garbage prior to leaving.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Mike

Update: Interior Redecoration Project

Dear Spring Run Member,

IMG-8637

Our Interior Redecoration Project continues to get positive compliments on the colors and style, and we still have a ways to go. We are anticipating being about 95% done by the end of October. The only thing remaining will be the furniture, which is coming directly from the factory in North Carolina. Because of the flooding, the delivery date has been pushed back 2 weeks.

We will be removing the carpet in the hallway and Greens Room on Wednesday, Sept 19, and replacing it on Thursday, Sept 20. I was hoping to get it all done on Wed when we were closed, but the carpet is extremely time-consuming to remove, and he couldn’t get a crew on Tues to start earlier. Ahh…such is life. On Thursday, Sept 27th, tables and chairs, console tables, and artwork will be delivered, and that process should be completed by Friday, Sept 28th. That leaves only the Lobby furniture to be delivered 2 weeks later.

We want to thank everyone for being so understanding of the mess in the Clubhouse during this process. We are very excited to be able to be able to complete this interior transformation for our Members soon!
