    As I watched the latest video of the BOD meeting, I was aghast this project still seeks to be done.

    The second dog park was approved by the BOD right after RCSC purchased Duffeeland. It is a motion, approved and had money allocated to it. How do I know this? I was the Director who presented the motion, and the board, of that time, approved it.

    The need for a 2nd dog park does NOT need to go to the LRP, or to anyone else. Jim Wellman had drawings and renderings for what it would look like to include fencing to two separate areas for the small and large dogs, watering area, gates for entrances, and a covered area for people to sit while their dogs frolicked in the park.

    It was delayed because the GM wanted to see how Duffeeland turned out before committing anymore time to the 2nd dog park. Well folks, the time has come and gone for the second park, and it is already an approved motion by the board. So, lets get with it!

  2. Yes most definitely! Sun City needs to step up to the 20th century. More people more pets, equates to more activities and more parks, and more dog parks... Duffeland is sterile, cold, old and antiquated.....This is not what I am paying dues for!! Step up.

    I would be remiss not to tell you; do not hold your breath over this one. Unfortunately this ship sailed a long time ago, as Carole Martinez championed it while on the board and was treated like crap for doing so. The sad reality is right now the community has serious issues that is going to cost us some serious money. We have a substantial amount in the PIF right now but once they start the Mountainview project that will quickly be depleted.

    There's also a number of projects beyond the phase 1 option to MV and sadly all of them will be held in abeyance until the lake and golf course water allocations are resolved. I know it's not what you wanted to hear and for that i am sorry. The board just isn't very good at helping members (not card-holders) understand what is going on.
