In 1999 my wife and I visited Lake Monticello as a possible retirement location. We were won over by the beauty of the area, and the amenities offered to residents – a lake, pool, marina, beaches, a golf course, playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts and a main clubhouse. Homeowner association dues were a new thing for us, as I’m sure they were for many who moved here, but dues aid to offset some of the cost of amenities for the community – the whole community. Some of these amenities have seen repair or replacement in past years. The lake dam, the marina boat slips, the pool area, #5 beach, and the golf course have all made a dramatic comeback, but many improvements are still needed. A previous architectural review of the Ashlawn and the Pro Shop/Eagles Nest verified this. To accomplish this goal the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association board has presented a renovation and replacement project proposal to all community members.
