Thank you to the many homeowners who shared their thoughts about asking the city of Concord to install no turn signs at the entrance at Ayers Road, and for their other ideas on how to help all of us with traffic and speeding in our community.
Your responses and ideas were discussed at Thursday’s Board of Directors meeting. The great majority of respondents were against no turn signs.
The Safety and Security Committee will review the opinions and possible solutions to determine the next steps that it will recommend to the Board and community at large (e.g., letters to the Concord city council).
Just like the Ayers Road no turn signs feedback, it was also great hearing from our enthusiastic homeowners about plans for the backboard near the lower tennis courts. In the end, the great majority of respondents favored keeping the backboard by repairing it with plywood designed to last at least 20 years.
Responses and solutions were discussed at the Board meeting on Thursday, with no formal vote taken. Bids to repair the backboard are expected over the next few weeks.
As of February 8, new sunshades have been installed over the main playground. The installer has a few more things to tighten before all sunshades are permanently set and taut, but they’re well on their way. We’ll let you know when the installation is finished. Thanks for your patience.
