Wheatlands Recreation Center Project

This project is continuing to make great strides.  We secured financing, finalized the building design, hired the construction crew and broke ground last year!  

Did you know as Wheatlands residents you will get a family membership to the YMCA recreation center?  We can’t wait for the indoor pool, fitness studios, teaching kitchen and classes that will be offered for our community.   

To follow along with the construction of our new recreation center visit: 

Notes from the Board

 Pool and Clubhouse Information 
The board has been working hard with the YMCA to get some much needed work done at the pool and clubhouse. Below is an update on the improvements that are being made:

*Pool and Clubhouse sound system upgrade was approved at January’s board meeting

*New tables for the pool were approved at January’s board meeting

* Pool Heater replacement was approved and will be completed in the spring

* Pool Filter addition was approved and will be completed this spring

*Additional metal trash cans for the pool were approved at the last board meeting.

* The new dumpster enclosure is complete. This improvement allows us to store 2 dumpsters inside the enclosure and replaces the broken, old enclosure.

* Permanent shade structures at the pool were approved at the October meeting and are being ordered. These canopy structures will be bolt mounted into the cement. They will fit along the south side of the pool deck. American Awning and Patio Company has a lifetime hail warranty on the shades. The shades are also removable to be taken down in the winter or as needed.

* A Fabric shade has also been approved that will be weaved along the top of the pergola to provide additional shade around the pool.

* Staining of the pool and clubhouse pergolas has been completed

* The Parking lot needs to have row painting and crack filling completed. This will prevent further damage and a more costly fix later. This improvement was approved at the October meeting. We recognize several residents use the clubhouse to park during school pick up and drop off. We will partner and communicate with Pine Ridge to when the parking lot closure will occur. We will also send a communication when we have the date scheduled. Thanks for your patience with this fix.

Items that are in the process of getting approval for 2020 include:

* Remodel of the pool bathrooms
