The Board has committed to completing some renovations to LMOA facilities, particularly those having to do with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance.
Still up for hot debate is exactly what renovations and construction will in fact take place.
Patience occasionally wore thin as the Board went down a several-page list of proposed renovations and space configurations, pausing to debate most of them. Among the proposals were the construction of a “Bunker recreational center” near the golf course, the renovation of the clubhouse, and the expansion of the Ashlawn Grille.
LMOA Board President Marlene Weaver reminded her fellow Board members that their votes that evening were merely to submit the scenarios to an architect for cost estimates – not to approve or deny the ideas themselves.
Director Cole Hunter, who was appointed by the Board to fill the space vacated by Richard Cummings, replied that he felt some of the motions constrained future decisions.
When some of the 17 members in attendance spoke before the Board, most urged caution. “I ask you to heed the community’s plea for moderation as you go forward with your plans,” said Kathryn Renick. Members want buildings they can be proud of, she continued, but not ones that price them out of their homes.
