A contractor will be onsite to repair the damage.

Painting of the garbage door enclosures is slated to begin in late August.

Roadway/Driveway Repairs:

New Chaparral Estates Sign:
The Board has approved a design for the new sign.  Quotes have been requested.
    UPDATE:  The sign was completed and installed at the end of November 2011.

2011 Deferred Projects

Garage Trim: 

After careful considerations of the projects that are being planned this year it was decided to defer this project for review in Spring/Summer 2012.

Going Batty:
The Board has approved a pilot project to increase the population in our community.  A Bathouse has been approved to help combat the flying insects that sometimes make going outside unpleasant.
    UPDATE: A spot has been located.  The Bathouse will be installed in the north east corner on the north side of visitor parking.  Plans to install a pole to attach the Bathouse are underway.
    UPDATE: Due to competing commitments this project has been deferred to the 2012 spring season.

Roof Replacement:

The Board is currently considering the option of replacing some roofs.  Typically pine shake roofing material lasts up to 10 to 15 years; currently our roofs our 12 years old and deteriorating. 


The Board has asked for quotes on different materials to replace the worst of the roofs, currently 3 of the buildings.  These materials range from the standard shingles to a low weight concrete tile.  We are looking at all options with cost, maintenance and energy efficiency taken into account.


Stay tuned for more updates.

    UPDATE: This project is currently deferred until the 2012 repair season.

2011 Cancelled Projects

West Stucco Wall: 

The Board assessed the west stucco wall and determined that other than regular maintenance no other resources need to be earmark for this project unless warranted.
