Board members hear a report and recommendation from Pam Ellenger, Chair of our Muirfield Grounds and Facilities Committee, giving the results of the latest survey of residents that focussed solely on the pools. Some key changes will be implemented to enhance the pool experience for Muirfielders, to be announced soon.
The Board has been using survey results for the past year as a key planning tool, and we thank residents who respond to these, and the G & F members who pore over the results and make recommendations. Over 100 residents volunteer their time on not only G & F, but also on the Civic Action Committee, the Design Control Committee and the Muirfield Social Activities Committee, including the Empty Nester groups, Santa and Egg Hunt events, Fishing Derby and so much more.
The Board has looked at some new, composite roofing materials that resemble cedar shakes and slate shingles and approved those, if on a case by case basis the site-specific look is approved by the design control Committee, in keeping with detailed standards developed by architect Rich Taylor, a member of the DCC. Several Board members and General Manager Walter Zeier did a field trip a few months ago to examine the new materials in place on homes in Granville and other communities. The materials are expensive, durable and in keeping with Muirfield's esthetics.
As you likely read in a previous e-mail from the Association office, the Annual Meeting of the Muirfield Association, Inc. will be held Wednesday, April 17, 2019, 6:00pm-7:30pm., at the Muirfield Village Golf Club, 5750 Memorial Dr. Dublin, Ohio 43017. Note this is a change from the past few years -- back to a former location, earlier hour. The guard at the gatehouse will tell you where to park. The meeting is not in the main clubhouse, but instead is in the Pavilion. You will receive more info mid-week, when ballots go out in both e-ail and snail mail for you to vote for members of the HOA Board. All three incumbents whose seats are up are re-running: John Reiner, Diana Evans and Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher, joined by Andrew Graham. Their bios will come with the ballots.
Finally, from the City of Dublin: Hello Neighborhood Leader,
Please invite your neighbors to an upcoming public meeting on Dublin Community Pool North renovations: Tuesday, April 2, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the Dublin Community Recreation Center. After serving the Dublin community for nearly 30 years, Dublin Community Pool North (5660 Dublinshire Drive) is overdue for a major renovation. This past fall the City of Dublin asked for input on the project, with two public meetings and a public comment period. The City received extensive feedback, primarily from the swim team community, requesting the City pursue the design of a 50-meter competition pool with a retractable, indoor/outdoor enclosure to accommodate swim team activities and other aquatic programs year-round. While the City only intends to fund replacement of the existing 25-meter pool and other outdoor amenities, a community-driven initiative is aiming to raise additional private funds for the larger, more competition-based facility. We invite you to provide feedback on potential design concepts at the public meeting. For more information and updates visit:
Happy Spring to all of you from our Board and Staff at the Muirfield Association! Bob Fathman, Board President
