By now many of you have seen the new playground! I am very pleased with the results. The playground is over 2200 square feet and is rated for 36 kids. That’s room for a lot of fun!!
You will notice that we are short on mulch around a few of the edges. We have the proper depth around the play set fall zones. The lead time on additional mulch is 2-3 weeks. Please use extra caution along the edge where you see the mulch thin or non existent.
Many people were involved with this project. This project is the vision of the Long Range Planning Committee. They began planning over a year ago. The CLPOA BOT provided ideas for the final details and approved the project to be included in the 2020 budget.
When it was time to build, additional property owners stepped up by donating time and equipment. Below is a list of Property Owners that volunteered their time.
Chad Brown: Donated his time and Bobcat to auger all the post holes.
Brian Knowles: Brian helped assemble the equipment during the first day. Brian was also the lead in obtaining the group of volunteers that helped out on the final day to mulch and finish the project up.
Al Hedrick Jr.: AJ donated 9 hours on the second day to install the landscape fabric and all the playground edging. AJ took a lot of swings with the hammer!
The residents below all worked on the final day to install the mulch, hang the swings, place the mats, and complete a full sanitization of the play set.
Mike Whistler, Erica Edmunds, Marty Ditello, Braden Ditello, Dante Talley, Dave Stewart, Mike Ruble, Brian and Mandy Knowles, and Steve Baker. Hayden Covert, of the CLPOA maintenance staff, also donated his time on the final day.
My final thanks goes out to Pete Weber and Al Hedrick for their hard work during day 1 and day 2. Those were two hot days!

Have fun everyone!
