News From IronOaks at Sun Lakes

General Manager’s monthly report

Current Projects:

Halley and Voax pools at Ironwood: Work began on the Voax pool on May 26 and is scheduled to be complete by the end of June. We have yet to receive a date as to when work will begin on the Halley pool as the lines will be coming from the west side of Alma School.

2014 financial audit: The external CPA firm performed their onsite visit April 29—May 6. We were just informed they should be complete by June 30.

Lakes Golf Course at Oakwood: The Lakes golf course renovation project was approved at the March BOD meeting. A pre-construction meeting was held on April 15 and construction began on May 11.

Speed humps at Oakwood: Speed humps will be installed and tested on Nacoma within the next few weeks.

Oakwood north wall that borders Intel: We are working together with Intel to create a plan for addressing and maintaining the area on their property that our homeowners are illegally dumping onto.

Food and Beverage renovations: In March, an RFP was sent out to interested parties, who then met onsite in March. They prepared and submitted proposals in April summarizing possible options for our Food and Beverage Department in relation to operations and décor. The proposals were then presented to the BOD for review and comment at their April workshop. A resolution is going before the BOD in June to hire an architect to create plans and designs for the Oakwood bar and restaurant, which will then be presented to the homeowners.

Block fence and gate painting at Oakwood: A resolution was approved at the May BOD meeting. We will begin working on this next week and will primarily be on the western side of Oakwood.

Sealcoating of roads: A resolution was approved at the May BOD meeting. Work will begin after the July 4 weekend.

Audio amplifier system at Oakwood: A resolution was approved in May to replace the audio amplifier system in the Oakwood Ballroom. We are waiting on scheduling from the contractor to begin installation.

Monument signs at Oakwood: A resolution was approved in May to replace the four major monument signs at Oakwood. Work is scheduled to begin on this within the next week.

Paper newsletter: We released our first paper copy of an additional newsletter on July 1. It will be placed in white weather proof stands around the property with copies at the Clubhouse and gate houses. The full cost of this project is funded through advertising space sold in the newsletter. We will still continue e-mailing the Stay in the loop (SITL); however it should have less information.

Halley tennis courts at Ironwood: The BOD approved the conversation of the clay tennis courts to post tension, replacement of all light fixtures and fencing at the May BOD meeting. Work began on the June 22.

Future Projects:

Food and Beverage: We are working on setting up a cake ordering service with Bashas’. We are also looking at offering curbside pickup for to-go ordering.
