Clubhouse Area Recreation Complex Project

The Clubhouse Area Recreation Complex Project (CARC) is a major capital project that is designed to reconstruct, renovate, update the amenities in the area of the Clubhouse. The CARC project gives our community 25 ADA-compliant parking spaces for the Clubhouse, beach, fitness center and pool. Our old beach bathrooms will be replaced and moved closer to the beach. The fifty-year old bathhouse/fitness center building will be replaced with new infrastructure that will better meet the needs of our members. The swimming pool will be replaced with a/multipurpose pool that will meet the needs of all ages, from toddlers to seniors, as well as the needs of our physically challenged members. The old snack bar for the pool will be replaced by a new snack bar serving all members using the Clubhouse beach area, not just pool users. A new basketball court will be built for our youth to replace the old court.
