Community Areas of Concern

This is a list of areas in the community that need attention:

Standing water

  • [To address] New flooding area on Washington Drive.  New homes past Booker have been experiencing flooding in front yards as the builder never installed swales or a way for water to flow toward Booker road. We should look into this issue.
  • [To address] Still some flooding on Creek after new house was built. Helen Granado’s ouse is most affected.
  • [Fixed] Ms Cherry’s swale repairs need to be re-checked. Probably need to talk with her on what she thinks needs to be changed
  • [Complete] Flooding from Paper work (Cedar Rd) into homes along Ellis and into Ellis Road.
  • [Mostly fixed, one resident would not let us repave driveway apron and fix the swale in from of his house] Flooding on Ellis
  • [Starting in July] Fix standing water in Biohabitats area on Harbor
  • [Fixed] Booker pump out
  • [Idea] Gazebo at Harbor

Community Property

  • Fishing Creek parking area and park – No current issues. Add two more picnic tables.
  • Fishing Creek pier – Replacing dock boards
  • Harbor Lot and play ground –  No current issues. Removed broken bat box
  • Booker Parking Lot – Need to add some gravel.
  • Washington Boat ramp – Swale plantings.
  • Beach – No current issues

Board Approvals/Motions Needed

To accomplish these, we would need to Board to approve the following:
  • Approve the idea for a Pavilion at Harbor.  Estimated cost is about $20,000.
  • Approve purchase of ‘pre-packaged’ circuit course, Estimated cost is $7500 for materials and $2500 for labor
  • Add text to not allow vulgar music on beach and reminder text on noise ordinance.
