In 2018, Cadeaux proposed that a major fence repair project should be undertaken over the succeeding five years. The top priority was, and still is, the five fields between the lower ring and Glenmore Way. In 2018 Beaver Dam Fence proposed repair and patching of the posts and boards in those five fields for $12,500. When negotiations for a new lease failed, this work was not done. Beaver Dam Fence has since gone out of business.
In 2019 Cadeaux announced its intention to leave at the end of May 2019, so fence work was postponed until a determination could be made as to the future use of the land. Cadeaux did not leave at the end of May and in June stated the intent to stay at least through the end of February 2020, and longer if a new lease can be negotiated.
In May Cadeaux requested that the GCA purchase a load of fence boards. The boards were delivered within 48 hours of the request. Under the terms of the lease, the GCA is required to provide the materials for the fences and Cadeaux is to undertake the work to repair and maintain the fences. Of the 90 boards that were delivered, about half have been used by Cadeaux to repair the fences to date.
At a meeting with Zach Parks on July 15, 2019, it was determined that the GCA would obtain three bids for a fence repair project. A GCA Committee member has met with two fence contractors and a third meeting is expected to be held this week or next week. When the meeting date with the third fence contractor is set, the Board and EC Committee will be invited to attend.
Regarding the recent horse escape, a horse went through the fence where there was a split fence post, and a board came loose in one of the five fields bordering Glenmore Way and Piper Way. The horse escaped during the night and there were no known witnesses. The horse was found grazing along Glenmore Way in the morning by a resident and was safely returned to the barn.
