Update to the Pavilion
The pavilion for the multi-use courts that was being installed had to be taken down as the City of Duluth required us to have a permit for the pavilion and also required us to have a bigger pavilion than what we had planned. In addition, the space where the pavilion would have been placed is the best access the multi-use courts for repairs. A bigger pavilion would have been a bigger problem to temporarily take down and store if the multi-use courts ever had to be repaired or replaced again.
Therefore the pavilion for the multi-use courts was dismantled. Most of the materials that had been purchased for that pavilion was returned to the retailers they were purchased from. However, the lumber that had been nailed together for the foundation of the pavilion could not be returned. The Misters (Dwayne and Verline) are allowing the HOA Board to use their backyard as storage for the used lumber, since the lumber would not be safe to store at the multi-use courts or anywhere else on the subdivision’s common property.
We don’t think anyone in our subdivision could have expected this outcome when we went into the project of getting another pavilion for our multi-use courts. As the HOA Board, we worked hard to research and make the right decision for the right pavilion to replace the old pavilion, as everyone agreed that our multi-use courts needed a shady area for spectators. Unfortunately, it was one of those things where we didn’t foresee the local rules changing and not letting us be “grandfathered” in, as we had previously had a pavilion for the multi-use courts.
The Board wants to continue to make the right decisions and make the best of this situation. To that end, the multi-use courts now have a smaller shady area for spectators that does not require a permit, and the used lumber will be used by the Misters as much as possible for future projects in the subdivision so that the HOA does not have to spend money on dumping the used lumber
