Last month the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association Board of Directors decided to relocate Lake Monticello’s primary meeting room from the Clubhouse Terrace Room to a reconstructed golf administration building on Bunker Blvd.
Applying basic logic to this plan would indicate that the meeting room should remain at a central location near the main gate. In fact, Director Mike Harrison pointed out at the Dec. 8 work session that the basketball court should remain “centrally located here at Ashlawn” next to the Clubhouse.
Compared to a basketball court, a new and improved meeting room will be utilized by considerably more residents including Lake Monticello staff and administrators, catered events such as dinners, an election precinct polling location and the Broadcast Committee’s television studio. If a more central location with access from the main gate makes sense for a basketball court, why shouldn’t it make sense for this multi-use meeting room?
If the meeting room is moved to the Bunker Blvd. location on the golf course it means a larger facility would be built and the loss of almost an acre of trees.
