Our Board has been very busy getting projects and business done. Members will soon see beautiful new refurbished tennis courts, refurbished basketball court, refurbished community center grounds, the baseball field looks great even without the grass (still deciding what to do with that), and there are plans to redo the old Amistad Eldorado Entrance monument. I have heard that they plan to knock the center part down and just refurbish the 'wings' of the monument. I am a bit sad about that as I had hoped we would refurbish the existing 'Original and Historic' Eldorado monument back to it's 'almost' Original state as in the picture below. But, I will not fight this one. It will just be better to have it looking nice for Eldorado members and for members of the other subdivisions who enter on Amistad. Here is an old picture I got from Mr. Donohue of our Original Eldorado Entrance sign from 1972.
The plan is to just keep the wings on either side and refurbish them. It will look nice, I'm sure, but, I just think it is sad to knock down our original Eldorado historical center monument. That's my 2 cents...If you have any feelings or thoughts about the monument, I'd love to hear them. You can also let our Board and the Facilities & Grounds Committee know your preference as they are going into the final phase of deciding what to do with the center structure of the monument. Thank you!
