Stop By to Learn More about Entrance Treatments at Open House on March 16

As with any project we undertake at our own residences, there are iterations in making decisions about neighborhood improvements. We identify what we want to improve. We learn which vendors can do the work. We arrange to meet with them to review the proposed job. We solicit bids. From these, we understand what current costs are for the various components of the job. At each stage, we modify the scope of the work to be performed based on cost and other factors.

So it is with the improvements to the entrance treatments that the Revitalization Committee has been discussing for months. We’ve not only completed these steps, we’ve presented preliminary sketches and associated costs at the February board meeting. Now it’s time to share this information with all the residents to gather their reactions.

We’re staging an Open House on Sunday, March 16 at the Kings Forest Pool Room. There will not be a lengthy formal presentation; rather, you’ll have the opportunity to view the sketches and chat with members of the Committee. We’ll brief you on designs, estimated costs, and financing alternatives.

You’re welcome to stop by anytime between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., have a glass of wine, see what’s proposed and give us your initial reaction. With your input for guidance, the Committee will continue to engage with the selected vendor(s) to refine the plans. At the same time, we will work with the board to coordinate funding for the project.

This is a very important meeting for Kings Forest that we urge you not to miss. Please R.S.V.P. at so that we can plan sufficient food and drink.
