YOUR PGA POA BOARD OF GOVERNORS
For those who were unable to attend the PGA POA Annual Meeting last month, I’ve listed the names of the POA Board and their titles. Nancy Hebel was welcomed as a newly elected member. Your Board of Governors include Mike Engelsher, President; Jack Hughes, Vice President; Bob Kramer, Treasurer; Ginny Luongo, Secretary; and Directors Keith Ahronheim, Sam Boyd, Ralph Infanti and Patty Pond. Board meetings will continue to be held on the 4th Monday of each month at 3:00 p.m. in the POA Office. Meetings notices for Board and Committee meetings are posted in the POA office storefront and here on the website. All Board and Committee meetings are open to all property owners.
WHAT IS GOING ON?
You probably recall that the POA Long Range Planning Committee has mentioned plans to enhance the ‘ellipse’ (a/k/a the traffic circle) but it will be several more months before the Maintenance and Long Range Planning Committees have plans finalized enough to share details. In summary, the elevation will be raised (similar to the height of the Mirasol entry opposite Ryder Cup Blvd) and a free-form sculpture will be placed in the middle. Low stone accent walls will be added near each of the four intersecting roads (ie: Avenue of the Champions, Fairway Drive, and the office building driveway) and, of course, spectacular landscaping so that the entry is worthy of the PGA National community.
The aforementioned committees will also be working on improving the PGA Blvd frontage. The POA would like to remove all of the ficus trees and totally replace the landscaping and trees; however, this is a HUGE project and City approval is, of course, required. Details will not be available for a least another year and, as indicated, this is on the long range plans so actual work won’t start for quite some time.
General maintenance and improvements are always on-going. Your Maintenance Committee and Board of Governors work closely and they will continue to address areas that need improvement. The gardens in Masters Park are due for an “overhaul” and the Northlake Blvd landscaping along the wall (west of Ryder Cup Blvd) will be replaced within the next year. Each project is completed on a schedule that allows the work to be done without special assessments or a large impact on your assessments. Your feedback is always appreciated.
NOTE THE DATE FOR FUN
Plans for the Annual Children’s Party in the Park are being finalized. If you are new to PGA National, please make a note of the April 27th date so you can be at Masters Park from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. The event is fun for children of all ages (including those young at heart) and is for residents of PGA National and their guests. Hotdogs, hamburgers, popcorn, cotton candy and other treats are available. This year the climbing wall is back but will now have a few sides so a couple climbers can compete to get to the top; the giant slide will be back (of course!); the bungee trampoline, bounce houses, and other carnival type rides will available. Attendees can also make Frisbee Spin Art or get their photo taken with ‘Photo Magic’ and have it attached to key rings and other items (yes, you get to keep your designs!) and the ‘games master’ gets everyone organized for relay races, sack races, water balloon toss, etc. Naturally, stuffed animals are awarded to the winners of all games. Postcards with all the details and the required RSVP info will be mailed to each residence in PGA National in March and a notice will also be included in this newsletter next month.
