·        Landscaping – Plants have been replaced in the North entrance divider.  The photinia has been trimmed along the 5th fairway.  The ditches inside and outside of the fencing have been sprayed with herbicide.  The mowing and trimming has started on ~ 10 day cycle.  A new lamp has been ordered for the main entrance planter.

·        Front Entrance Signage – Jack Ottini, Ryan Thrower, Craig McCrone, Craig Benson, and Ed Bangsund met at the front entrance on March 19th, to assess the sign issue.  We paced off the right-of-way distances, along with viewing the sighting angles and distances for Meridian Valley traffic entering the widened 132nd Ave. S.E.  It was immediately apparent, that to erect a new sign (s) accommodating the possible 132nd modifications, there would be a major cost associated with tree, street light, and fire hydrant removal, as well as possible infringement on homeowner’s properties.  This is in addition to the new signs at 12K each.  We agreed as an interim solution, to investigate repairing/upgrading the existing lighting and developing a false front with new lettering, using the existing concrete markers.  Discussion was held; more information is needed before a decision will be made.
