The Board has reviewed the many suggestions to improve our community and believes that we should be able to complete many of those listed below over a 3 year period, if no special assessments are imposed. We are encouraging feedback for priority or additional suggestions which can be posted to the comment box below. Press the + alongside each item for further details.
The existing steel barrier is corroded and possesses no mechanism to allow it to be opened mechanically. It remains open throughout the day during which time a rope is used to control access and egress.
Canal security booth
The building, which is of a wooden structure, is in a poor state and requires significant renovations or replacement.
The frequency with which the canal inlet requires dredging is increasing due to the movement of the sand from the West to East. Engineers recommend extending and raising the jetty on both sides, and sand tightening them to reduce the amount of sand entering the canal.
We have added curbing along the roadways where new landscaping has been installed giving the area a more finished look. However, most of the community roadways are without curbing.
Low lying areas of the estate are subject to flooding during heavy rainfall, the solution is to drill 150ft drains in the affected areas.
Landscaping project – Sandyport Drive 43 – 48
The tennis court, pool area, pool deck and gardens alongside Sandyport Drive 43 and the common area directly opposite are in poor condition. If the budget permits, all works should be carried out together.
There are plans to extend the wall that backs on to Super Value toward the corner by Tambearly School. We had applied to build an additional entrance in the same area but we have had difficulties obtaining right of way.
The pools near Sandyport Drive 43, at Governor’s Cay and adjacent to Roberts Isle are due to be resurfaced.
The fence that runs from the service gate toward Super Value does not provide any privacy from passers by along West Bay Street. A privacy screen – similar to that installed at the main entrance tennis courts – will improve the level of privacy in the community.
The area adjacent to the gazebo in near Coral Beach has sufficient space to add amenities; a committee has been formed to develop this idea.
The following are some suggestions we have received for additional signage within the community:
No smoking for restrooms
Wheelchair access (no playing)
Watch out for pedestrians
Speed bump ahead
Authorised personnel only
Name signs for recreation areas
Automatic entry – stand clear
Bicycle / pedestrian lane
Pitch in (inside the garbage corrals)
24 hour surveillance for outside of perimeter
Warning high voltage sign
No diving or removing of furniture
Do not force automatic gate
Press intercom for assistance
Keep of grass
Automatic entry – do not force open
General community rules for all entrances (including canal)
We have approximately 200 street lights, many of which require re-installation to provide greater stability and better aesthetics. In particular during hurricane season a number tend to become damaged beyond repair at a cost of over $1,000 each.
The CCTV system has recently been significantly upgraded to include the ability to transmit all CCTV footage to the main security control room. The next phase requires the installation of a fiber loop to allow faster transmission of video data together with greater saturation of CCTV cameras at choke points and recreation areas.
Tennis court fences
The fences around the tennis courts are original and in need of significant repairs or replacement. If the courts are resurfaced, the poor condition of the fences will become more obvious.
Tennis court resurfacing
All the tennis courts are in need of resurfacing and most have some degree of root damage from nearby trees.
The work to replace the fences around the transformers and lift stations (wastewater system) is complete. The final stage of this project requires the installation of bougainvillea plants around each fence to provide a natural screen from the equipment within.
It is a common misconception that the green tanks located at the maintenance compound store potable water. The tanks are part of our wastewater system which comprises of seven lift stations (which is a well with 2 pumps that move the wastewater toward the wastewater plant) and a series of tanks that each perform a function as part of the treatment process. Many repairs and upgrades have been carried out on the system since it was transferred from the Developer to the Association and there are many more outstanding. Preliminary costings to carry out the necessary repairs or upgrades recommended by our engineers exceed $600,000.
