The pond improvement construction will begin Monday, April 6, weather permitting. Please be aware of possible traffic issues on Clearwater Way by the islands.
Due to the contractor having some unforeseen issues in obtaining the necessary hardscape materials, the beginning of the construction is delayed. We will keep you updated on the progress.
The pond construction will begin within the next two weeks. The construction will involve the building of a bridge to cross over the drainage creek, which runs parallel to Clearwater Way, fortifying the drainage creek with rock to reduce erosion into the pond, fortifying approximately two thirds of the ponds banks with rock to prevent further erosion of the banks and the construction of a new spillway.
During this time there will be some disruption of traffic on Clearwater Way, due to the large amount of materials and equipment needed to complete this project. We ask everyone to be aware of and utilize caution for everyone’s safety. Thank you for your patience during this time of much needed improvement.
Waterford Issue Update – School Redistricting
On Thursday evening (Feb. 12, 2015), your Waterford HOA Board of Directors approved the attached letter to the Fayette County Board of Education regarding the proposed redistricting of elementary schools serving our neighborhood. This letter was transmitted to the Board of Education and its special School Zoning Committee on Friday, Feb. 13, 2015.
Waterford residents may educate themselves about the School Zoning Committee and the process being undertaken to redraw the school boundaries within our community by visiting the Fayette County Board of Education’s website: http://www.fcps.net/zones. Information about draft proposals being considered are available for review. Residents may submit comments directly to the School Zoning Committee via the online Let’s Talk forum: http://www.fcps.net/letstalk.
The School Zoning Committee has been convening public listening sessions within the community which provide impacted residents the ability to communicate directly and in-person with the committee. The next public listening session will be held on Monday, February 16 at Tates Creek High School from 6-8 p.m. We urge all concerned residents to attend this event and share their perspectives and/or concerns about the proposed school redistricting proposals.
