KING’S GATE CLUB
NOVEMBER BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING
- It is budget time again and the committee will begin their meetings early next month.
- The front gate & island projects are nearing completion. The wall around the island, the stone
base for the sign and the pavers at the front of the waterfall ponds are in place. The ponds have
been sandblasted and a rustic stone finish will be applied shortly. The field stones that form the
water fall have developed a rusty coating from the iron in them. They will be cleaned and sealed.
Some additional fieldstones will be added to hide some of the water pipes and electrical conduits.
Sometime after the holidays, additional landscaping material will be planted among the new foxtail
palms. The paint on sign at the front is fading in places. The sign manufacturer is aware of the
problem and assures us that they will take care of it.
- There is a STOP sign at the exit from the Club property onto Kings Way Drive. This means that
traffic from King's Gate Park has the right of way over KGC traffic. Please observe the STOP sign.
There have been a few near misses recently.
- A group of volunteers along with the club staff spread the mulch in the beds on the common
property. Thanks to all for a job well done. The project was completed by 9:45 that morning.
- An orientation session for the new features at the woodshop will be held very soon. Watch the
newsletter or Channel 33 for the notice of date & time. Key holders and non key holders will be
welcome to attend.
- In order to allow the landscape crews to have a long weekend over the Thanksgiving holiday, they
will mow the Club's property this Saturday and the following Monday.
- Some of you may have seen on Channel 7 news a report that the Sarasota County Commission has
proposed to sell $60M in bonds for a stimulus plan. To quote the news report - "$5 million will be
used to extend Honore Avenue to Laurel Road. Improvements to libraries and facilities at local
beaches including Siesta, Nokomis, Manasota, and Caspersen Beach. 'We are doing a series of borrowing
that will allow us to take projects that were originally scheduled for say eight, nine, ten years out
and start those now or within the next couple months so we can get people to work and get some
projects done,' says Deputy County Administrator Dave Bullock." The BOD has instructed me to contact
Attorney Gill to determine how this proposal will affect KGC. At this time, he has not responded with
any new information.
