Amazing how you and I think alike! I figured this “survey” would be loaded and sure enough it is. They want to give away $250K a year of OUR money. The board seems to forget that they are giving away their own money or perhaps they are rich enough in their retirement that they don’t care. Some of us aren’t. Like you, I can’t believe it will cost us $160K to operate the space as meeting rooms. Rooms that we desperately need right now and will in the future as homes sell. We would not be paying taxes, the electric bill should not increase and staff would be cleaning on their regular hours. Where that amount comes from is very questionable. Maybe they are including a big raise for our manager in that sum…..hmmm?
I am and always have been against another failed restaurant. In the 16 years I have lived here I’ve seen them come and go. They just don’t have the customer base in SCA to succeed. It’s time to drop this terrible idea and go forward with a more common sense solution to the space and that is more meeting rooms for the residents.
