Entrance/Exit Road Project Final UpdateNovember 5, 2019
Today we are opening the entrance road through the member lane into the community. Because work continues as we get ready to re-engage the gate system the guest lane will be closed. The gate system will not be in operation until early next week as we put the finishing touches on it. Now is the time to make sure you have your gate card with you again.
As you enter the community through the entrance road, I want
to point out a few things:
- SMOOTH ROAD – something we have not seen
in decades is a smooth road but it is what is below the road that is so
great. The road now has a new base which
will ensure we have a great road for many years. You also will not see that conduit has been
run that allowed us to make sure our electric and data cabling is properly
buried and protected to ensure proper operation of all equipment. The gate sensors have been properly installed
to ensure the are installed to specifications so gate operates properly and
- Better Parking for ILPOA Office – we now
have additional parking for the office in addition to existing parking on the
exit road side.
- New Position for Gate Directory – the new
directory position has been moved back from the guard shack. You will also notice the new hut build and
provided by Pat Leahy one of our Board Members.
- New Turn-out Lane – we designed the
turn-out lane into our design to help traffic flow on busy weekends when guests
cannot reach our members via the gate directory. Now instead of waiting as traffic backs up
behind them, they can exit to the left and just circle back out the exit lane. Then they have the option to return back
through the visitor entrance lane and attempt to reach the member again.
- Future Plans – our members and ILPOA
Clubs have agreed to work with us to help beautify our entrance and entrance gate.
Thanks to the leadership of Pat Leahy
(outgoing Board Member) our contractor, ILPOA staff and members who have helped
on this project. It is truly something
we can be proud of and an incredible first impression for our guests and future
We appreciate the compliments and support
by many of our members regarding this project along with the new Dam Road. It truly demonstrates what we can do when we
work together to address our infrastructure.
We hope to continue our efforts with a
positive vote to replace the Cove 9 Bridge to ensure the safety of community
and to ensure emergency equipment will always be able to get to the other side
of the lake in times of emergency. Our member
committees addressing Lake Restoration and Roads are also working to present
solutions to our members. Community
involvement has never been better and our future as a community has never been
brighter because you say and vote “I Believe in our Future”.
Thanks again for your support …
Your ILPOA Board
