Happy New Year! Your newly elected Board of Supervisors took the oath of office at the December 11, 2020 meeting; they are Jim Case, Steve Ludemerer, Sally Dickson, Bill DiPaolo, and Karen Pagano. The current board thanks and acknowledges the work and commitment the previous Board Supervisors put forth in their roles and hopes to build on the foundation they have created. Alongside the incumbent candidates elected to the Board, the newly elected Board Supervisors bring a mix of skills, expertise, and ideas to strengthen and enhance our community.

The Board of Supervisors has been working with Club Management to move forward on the Master Plan. They have finalized the contract with Fawley Bryant and have begun stage one of the project, including fact-finding and assessment. A Town Hall presentation will be given in April, the exact date yet to be determined.

Meeting minutes, as well as Recreation District documents, are available on the District website at universityparkrd.com.
