On July 22, a slide presentation on the “Somersett Owners Association Amenities Assessment Report” was conducted in the Canyon View Room at The Club at Town Center. This presentation was basically a summary of information contained the aforementioned report prepared by Hansford Economic & Freshtracks Consulting under contract to the SOA and issued on February 4, 2015. The slide presentation may be accessed by clicking on the following link:
The entire report has been previously published on this website and may also be accessed via the following link:
Attendance at the presentation was rather sparse, with about 25 homeowners.
The slide presentation focused on
- Assessment Methodology and Amenity Planning Process
- Somersett Demographics
- Review of current amenity usage, future projections and recreation trends, both locally and industry wide.
- Key lessons from other HOAs (Tahoe Donner, Arrow Creek, Whitney Oaks, Sun River)
Of particular interest are the short and long term planning and operational recommendations contained in Slides 30-37. None of which appear to have been acted or reported on to date. That is, the presentation did not include any definitive information on the status of the report recommendations. It was suggested by the Strategic Planning Committee that engagement of a “Master Land Use Planner” as the next step might be in order.
Homeowner comments included 1) a recommendation that the pool hours and dates be extended with the use of solar heating, 2) concern over the accuracy of Somersett demographics based on 2010 data and the 2013 homeowner survey results and its effect on amenity planning, 3) current planning for use of the SOA purchased property in the Town Center Square (none to date).
