SLE Trustees appreciate the input and support from the lot owners meetings on 8/17/16 on the 'SLE Maintenance & Repair Project / Five Year Budget Plan' and again on 9/12/16.   SLE Trustees met on Thursday 8/18/16 to discuss the comments and suggestions made on 8/17/16.  The SLE Trustees have broken the 2016 Maintenance & Repair Project into  phases over a couple years - with the highest priority needs first. (i.e. phase 1)  There may be a water shed / water quality element added to the future parking lot and/or park repairs.

...............................................................................................................................................

NOTE:
SL Village has hired a contractor to replace its storm water sewer pipe under SLE boathouse parking lot. Work is scheduled for October 2016. (lake level is reduced). No direct expense to SLE.

..........................................................................................................................................

Several maintenance issue were identified by SLE'S lot owner based Facilities Planning Committee 2004 though 2010 and corrections were planned for 2010 - 2011 as noted in the 2004  - 2010 SLE Newsletters and other letters to the lot owners.  Property conditions in 2015 are the same or in most cases are worse.

2015 MAINTENANCE ISSUES
 -  Retaining wall boathouse to swimming dock - 90+ yrs old and failing
-   Retaining wall north end of the park - estimated 40-50 years old - failing

 Boathouse roof - leaking due to age       <  replaced in spring of 2016 >
-   Boathouse chimney - adding to roof leak and structural issue (above the roof line)

 -  Boathouse walls and floors in poor condition due to use of only 32" deep footer,
       location next to a lake and storm water run off from parking lot and from the park.
 -  Boathouse sanitary sewer line - too shallow, subject to blockage and breakage
 -  Parking lot - blacktop not properly installed 50 yrs ago, damaged, incorrect grading
 -  Parking lot curbs and retaining walls- constructed with used RR ties 40+ years ago
 -  Parking lot - need sidewalk for safety for people to walk away from traffic
  - Picnic pods - concrete slabs (some of the picnic pod retaining walls have been replaced)
  - Picnic pods - wooden retaining wall starting to fail
 -  Need replacement trees for those removed after lightning or insect damage
 -  Children's playground - needs additional repairs and replacement equipment
 -  Government regulations and Codes (village, county, region and Federal) impact
       maintenance, repairs and replacements choices.
 -  Wheel chair access to the picnic pods, etc. is very limited
  -  Other safety issues need to be addressed in the park property

     NOTE: SLE trust requires the proper maintenance of the property by the Trustees


1920 - 2015 MAINTENANCE:


Original designs, prior maintenance choices, budget limitations impact the appearance of our boathouse and park . Some prior maintenance decisions since 1920 were based on the lowest 'first cost', not life cycle cost (i.e. installation of used RR ties, only a top coat of blacktop was used 50 years ago)
