Construction has begun on the new ship-themed playground equipment at Outrigger Park. Construction is anticipated to take two to three weeks to complete. During construction, residents are asked to avoid the playground area. There are signs posted at the park to notify residents of the work being done.
The new playground equipment includes a ship-themed playset with a wind sail that acts as a shade cover for part of the equipment and playground surface. Adjacent to the play equipment will be a matching swing set. In addition to the play equipment, the sand will be removed from the entire playground area and will be replaced with certified “Fibar” (engineered wood fibers that knit together to form a surface soft enough to cushion falls, yet firm enough for wheelchairs). The installation of modernized play equipment and ground cover will allow this playground to be more accessible and family friendly.
The playground renovation was introduced and approved by the Board of Directors at the July 7, 2015 Regular Session Board Meeting. This park is one of several that have been updated as part of the Association’s Beautification Initiative, introduced in 2013.
Residents are invited to join the Association’s Board of Directors and staff at the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the park, 23950 Outrigger Dr., on Thursday, June 9, at 11 a.m.

Gate Access Options
Upon completion of the Main Gate Project there will be three entrance lanes into the community and two new options for members to access the community.
The left lane will be for guests and members who do not have a valid POA proximity card. The center lane will be for returning guests with a valid guest pass, members with a valid POA proximity card, and members with a valid vehicle decal. The right lane will be designated for members who have purchased a RFID vehicle transponder. The same technology is coming to the East Gate.
In 2015, the Association started issuing POA proximity cards that will be compatible with the new card readers planned for the Main Gate center lane and pedestrian sidewalk access gate. To obtain a new POA proximity card, visit Member Services.
The far right lane at the Main Gate will be equipped with RFID (radio frequency identification) technology that is designed to automatically open the gate when a vehicle equipped with an Association-issued RFID transponder drives towards the gate.
Members who wish to purchase a RFID sticker will need to bring their vehicle to the Member Service office for installation and to pay a one-time fee of $20 per transponder (no cash). The RFID transponder does not have to be replaced on an annual basis; however, members must provide annual registration to reactivate the transponder.
