Clubhouse RENOVATION ** In the June 2015 issue of the newsletter, plans were presented to the community. Since then, the Board hired JP2 Architects in Baltimore to draft renovation plans and plans for additional space - with mechanical, electrical and structural considerations. Several options were presented to the Clubhouse & Grounds Committee and interested Board members and community members. The options included extending the building towards Salisbury, going up with a second floor or extending the building towards Mayo Road. The extension on the front of the building was selected as the best option. In June 2016, LTPOA sent the plans out to four contractors for bid.
At the September 2016 Board meeting, the Board of Directors approved the selection of a contractor and also approved seeking a bank loan in an amount not to exceed $765,000.00. As a function of our designation as a Special Community Benefits District, the bank loan will be secured by Anne Arundel County. The County will pay the loan with monies from our annually budgeted SCBD funds.
December 2017. Except for the county required re-subdivision process that is holding up the permits, everything is in place to start the project. The hope is to start the project no later than March 1.
July 2018. The county sub-division process was much more involved than expected. The county set a requirement that the Association build a bike and pedestrian path along Mayo Road and widen both Salisbury and Blue Ridge Roads. This also required moving utilities. The SCBD could not fund those projects so LTPOA had no financial way to comply. After some negotiation, the project is back on track. At this point, we cannot estimate when we will receive permits.
October 29 - the construction begins!
March 2019. In addition to periodic heavy rains causing delays, discovering the deep and uneven overpour on the existing foundation presented structural issues with the adjoining concrete pour under the bearing firewall. Meanwhile, the interior of the Main Hall part of the project is moving along nicely.
April 2019. The exterior framing and roof trusses of the addition are up. Looks like progress!
May 2019. In order to put the finish materials on the existing building, it was necessary to frame and insulate (there was neither) above the concrete. Once that is complete, Integrity can continue working on the exterior finishes. The interior drywall is up. Most of the windows are in (two were lost in transit from manufacturer). Plumbing/electric for the new construction is under way.
August 2019. Most of the exterior, including rock work, is complete. The interior trim work is underway. The building must be under controlled environment (air/heat) for two weeks before the flooring can be installed. So, once BGE approves a CT box and systems can be fired up, the finishing touches will begin.
