 Special Meeting of Co-Owners planned for April

A Special Meeting of the Council of Co-Owners is expected to be held in April for the purpose of presenting for a vote plans for the extensive renovations of the Jackrabbit Pool complex which require Co-Owner approval under the provisions of Article V of the Condominium By-Laws. In advance of the meeting you will receive a package containing details of the renovation plans, financial projections for 2015 and 2016 and your ballot. The package will be sent via regular mail and email. The information will also be available on the web site. If you are not able to attend in person, you will be able to submit your absentee ballot by regular mail or email.

The Jackrabbit Pool Complex opened in 1996 and is the centerpiece of the Resort‚s recreation venues. Construction will be performed in phases during 2015 and 2016 thereby causing minimal disruption to guests. When completed, the main swimming pool will have a fresh updated appearance complimented by a new adult pool with separate lounge area, expanded kiddie pool with play area, and updated food service facilities funded by Marriott.

Cash flow from operations is projected to be sufficient to fund the project without the need for the Partnership to borrow additional funds.
