OWNER SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVE LACC
Other pages of this site are critical of the way that LACC conducts its affairs: spending large sums on increasingly oppressive "security," promulgating more and more intrusive and unnecessary rules and regulations, and devoting a disproportionate proportion of our dues to the golf course, used by a tiny minority.
This page is devoted to suggestions by viewers as to how LACC resources may be better applied to improve the community for the benefit of all of us. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR IDEAS - CLICK "MY IDEAS" BELOW
Why can't we save the hundreds of thousands of dollars we are paying for security and use it for something that increases our enjoyment of the club?
Why do we need a full-time (and high-salaried) General Manager? We could do fine with a seasonal manager and a good accountant to keep the books. Or maybe we should consider a management company. The association at which newly-designated GM Rick Archbold worked paid him a $118,000 salary. Why do we need to spend so much for a routine job, especially over the winter months when not much is going on besides snow removal?
ADDITIONAL RECREATIONAL FACILITIES: some owners point out that LACC has land that could be devoted to new recreational facilities, and existing facilities that could be expanded to include more uses. There is particular interest in facilities that would be available year-round.
For example, LACC owns a 13 acre parcel in the middle of the club that could be developed into a YEAR ROUND community center. This would serve families that want to bring the kids up in the winter as well as the summer. The large open area at Rec ONE could be used for roller skating in the summer, and ice skating in the winter.
Other ideas include a marina at Rec TWO for people that don't have a waterfront homes, and a pool at the club house (golf area). These would require initial funding, but in the longer term could generate revenue. There is a lot next to the office that could be converted to miniature golf, with parking in the office parking lot after hours.
