GHPOA Board Puts Survey to Repair Geist Chapel Tennis Courts
Writer and Photographer / Demi Lawrence
The Geist Harbours Property Owners Association has recently been made aware by the pastors of Geist Chapel on Old Stone Rd of repairs needed to be made to the tennis courts at the Chapel. With no current funds to make the necessary restorations, the Chapel will be forced to close the courts within the next two years due to liability reasons, unless some money is raised to keep these amenities available to GHPOA residents.
Based on estimates, the cost to repair the four courts and the entry area to the courts is $35,763. If these repairs are made, it would bring many positives to those living in the GHPOA area, including a higher quality of life, help attracting people to the area and possibly could increase the property values of the houses in the neighborhoods.
If these repairs are made, Geist Chapel would continue to oversee and insure the courts. The details of this plan would be outlined in a contract with the Chapel should the GHPOA decide to move forward with this process. The GHPOA Board suggests a disbursement from their reserve account of $36,000 to make the necessary repairs needed to make these tennis courts beautiful once again.
Before moving forward with this plan, the Association is requiring unanimous support defined as having greater than 50% of all residents in favor of this project. If you live in the GHPOA area, you can take the anonymous survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FHJ9SL7 to show your support or disapproval of this plan to restore the tennis courts on the Geist Chapel campus.
