Association seeks input on what residents want


For several days now the CLPOA Facility Review Committee has been holding workshops to get input from community clubs and groups as to what they’d like to see happen with community amenities. Soon, an online and paper survey will become available for all those who are interested in the future of Canyon Lake.

The FRC is conducting a series of workshops to gauge the community’s interest in future community enhancements as part of a proposed “Long Range Plan.” The purpose of this survey is to allow residents an opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas for amenity enhancements. Once this preliminary information is gathered, FRC will present the community’s most desired projects.

So far, there have been six workshops and one joint committee meeting, resulting in a list of more than 80 ideas. Clubs and committees were encouraged to attend the initial meetings to brainstorm.

Next, the committee would like to hear from everyone else at the last workshop to be held tomorrow, August 13, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Holiday Bay Room at the Lodge. This last meeting is open to all CLPOA members.

Once a comprehensive list is created, a survey will be available on the website and at Member Services for homeowners to vote for the top five enhancements they would like to see on a Long Range Plan (one survey per tract and lot). The survey will be available by August 16.

Flick-n-Float Tomorrow
