Project Updates in 2017!

Throughout 2017, many SAMLARC facilities received improvements and refurbishments to continue providing the membership with the best amenities possible as they enjoy life in Rancho Santa Margarita. Currently, several projects are nearing completion and will be finished by the end of 2017 or beginning of 2018. Following are some of the major projects that occurred in 2017!

Beach Club Storage Building and Trash Enclosure Project

The Beach Club Storage building and trash enclosure were constructed in spring 2017. The new storage building provides additional space for equipment and supplies, and it centralizes SAMLARC’s storage needs. The trash enclosure was relocated and expanded to accommodate janitorial needs.

Parking Lot Refurbishment at SAMLARC Parks and the Beach Club

Asphalt resurfacing, overlay, and complete ADA reconstruction was completed this fall at nine of the SAMLARC parking lots, as well as the parking lot at the Lakeshore amphitheater and the Beach Club.

Arroyo Vista Pool Replastering

The replastering and repairs to Arroyo Vista Pool were completed in December 2017. SAMLARC opened and heated the pools at Monte Vista Park, Solana Park, and Altisima Park throughout the Arroyo Vista Pool Closure so members still had access to the aquatic amenities.

Beach Club Fencing Project

Demolition and construction of the Beach Club Tubular Steel Fence began at the end of October 2017. The project is scheduled to be completed in January 2018. Residents are still able to use the walkway without interruption throughout the course of the project.

Playground Resurfacing Project

In fall 2017, Vista Verde Playground, Monte Vista Playground, Central Park East, and the Tijeras Creek Playground received new rubber surfacing. The installation of the rubber surfacing improved aesthetics and provided safety enhancements in the playground areas.

Basketball Court Refurbishments and Tennis Court Resurfacing

The basketball resurfacing project began in September 2017 and was finished in October 2017. The project consisted of resurfacing and replacing mastic material on five of the SAMLARC basketball courts and the tennis courts. This type of court maintenance helps to preserve the base substrate and the existing top coat to provide the best playing surface for residents.

Beach Club Monuments

In August, the Beach Club monuments were refurbished and updated with new paint and signage to remain current and help maintain a consistent aesthetic throughout the community.

Pool & Beach Club Mastic Projects

Empire Waterproofing, Inc. conducted the removal and the replacement of the mastic at the Beach Club and the SAMLARC pools in December 2017 to maintain the structural surfaces of the pools and lagoon.

We hope you enjoyed hearing about many of the project updates that were completed throughout 2017, and we look forward to future projects involving SAMLARC facilities in 2018!
