From the Developer – Fall 2020

While some businesses have slowed down because of COVID-19, that’s not the case in MacDonald Highlands! I will admit that it’s not easy getting plans processed through the City, as much of the staff works from home, but we will make progress. Our goal to move the pool over to the fitness facilities is nearly complete. We will begin constructing as soon as we receive approval of the plans. A new Pickle Ball court will be built in the sand/fitness area also.

Our Fitness Building will be expanded to allow for a new, quieter area for massage and spa treatments, an expanded café, and an overall facelift. We’re also planning to enhance the current pool area by eliminating the pool, and the loud fountain, adding new raised decks, a natural waterfall, canary palms, fire pits, an expanded snack/bar complex and an elevator leading up to the Ballroom and Montrose Room. These improvements will allow us to upgrade our club’s amenities and provide more flexibility in our entertainment options.

On the community construction front, we are about to begin the repair on most of the community roads. this has been planned and is part of the community road maintenance program. We expect to sign a contract in October and do the work shortly after that. Our older roads will look like new, and Liege Drive will be redone.

Construction on the mountain has been moving along as well. We are still trying to push through most of the blasting needed within the next year and should have all utilities and paving done on the entire site within 18 Months! Business has been brisk, and our neighbors from California are also even more anxious to call MacDonald Highlands Home.

See you at the club,
Rich MacDonald
