The Residents’ Club Committee’s primary purpose is to advise the BRRA board on operational needs and ongoing maintenance of the Residents’ Club facilities, as well as provide recommendations for the procurement of new and replacement items. In addition, the committee provides input to the Lifestyle Director for the preparation of the annual budget.
The committee is made up of at least five, but no more than seven members appointed by the BRRA Board of Directors.
The Committee has been very busy this year.
- In January, the Arts/Crafts room was painted and bead board/chair rail was installed.
- Light fixtures on the brick columns around the pool were replaced.
- An exhaust fan was added to the pool house.
- Pool Rules signs were placed on the pool house.
February and March were busy getting estimates on several maintenance and capital improvement projects under consideration by the Committee. A list of the projects include: upgrading landscape lighting, repaving the parking lot, reconfiguring the tennis and pickle ball courts, resurfacing the playground, adding pool furniture, considering heating the pool, considering converting the kiddie pool to a jacuzzi/spa, resurfacing the kiddie pool, resurfacing the pool, replacing pool showers, extending the pool house, purchasing the tent (vs renting), and adding a security arm/gate.
April 20 was the dedication of The Hartman Memorial Garden in front of the kiddie pool. Over one hundred residents were in attendance.
New pool furniture (additional lounge chairs, 2 high-top umbrella tables with chairs and free-standing umbrellas w/bases to place between the lounges) and two showers were purchased.
May saw the successful kickoff of the summer with a pool party and the erection of the new tent.
In July, the annual Fourth of July Golf Cart Parade was one of the biggest and best ever.
The Committee continues to work on improving the amenities at the Residents’ Club and are always open to any suggestions residents may have.
