POA approves funding for new main gate entry monuments


On Aug. 2, the Canyon Lake Board of Directors approved $227,680 plus 5% contingency for the installation of two entry monument signs and water features at the main gate.

The design includes a lighthouse (the finished product will have a tapered lighthouse) that matches the iconic lighthouse on the lake, two waterfalls and fountains on each side of the feature and lettering on the front that identifies and welcomes visitors to Canyon Lake.

Work on the signs will begin this fall with a target completion date before the New Year.

Project details and video can be found on the POA website at canyonlakepoa.com.

The previous main gate entry monument welcomed visitors to Canyon Lake for 30 years. It was demolished on March 25, 2016, when construction started on the Main Gate Project.

Later that year, the POA put out a Long Range Master Plan Survey to gauge the community’s interest in future community enhancements. A water feature at the main gate was the community’s top choice.
