Spring usually brings on a season of renewed energy and new life — a springboard into the rest of the year. This spring Cordillera Ranch welcomes a variety of new people, facilities and activities to the Ranch that will re-energize various aspects of the Club and community.
First, we have recently completed the new Clubs Outfitter Center which will be home to the Clubs river kayaking, toobing and fishing operations. This new 3,600-square-foot facility will enhance the Clubs Outfitter operations and also provide a small sporting goods pro shop for essential outdoor goods and apparel.
Next door to the new Clubs Outfitter Center is the Property Owners Association new Maintenance Facility. This new base of operations for POA maintenance will provide additional work space, equipment storage and meeting space for the maintenance team, who’s territory has grown to over 5,000 acres and 45 miles of roads. The addition of this quality shop space will be a great benefit to the team’s ability to efficiently oversee the maintenance of the many parks, trails, gates and landscaping areas that are essential to this community.
Just up the road, we’ve recently completed the first phase of The Springs of Cordillera Ranch and the new entry upgrade project on the west side of FM 3351. The addition of The Springs provides a variety of new trails, parks and amenities for all residents of Cordillera Ranch.
In addition to new facilities, the Club recently rolled out a new smartphone app that allows you to easily handle a variety of tasks with the Club including booking tee times, luxury limo van reservations, accessing the Club event calendar, viewing the Club directory as well as online bill pay and much more. We’ll continue to evaluate additional opportunities to enhance the app in ways that aim to improve member experience. To download the app, go to the app store and search “Cordillera Ranch.”
There are also some new faces around Cordillera Ranch that hopefully you’ll meet soon if you haven’t already. Mark Risner recently came aboard as the General Manager for the POA. Mark’s extensive background in community association management has him well-prepared to tackle the many projects and overall operations for the Association. The Club also has some fresh new faces including Graham House and Antonio Armendariz, overseeing the Clubhouse / Food and Beverage operations and they’re already implementing many new strategies to further improve member experiences at the Club.
Lastly, we can’t overlook our cover feature this issue, Cheryl Ladd and Brian Russell, who have partnered with Trey Garner of Garner Custom Homes to bring some of their California creativity to a homebuilding design and build operation. As you’ll find in the article — and particularly if you spend any time with the Charlie’s Angels star — their passion for the architectural and interior design process runs deep and results from extensive world travels.
This issue highlights a few of these additions but to learn more about how we are growing and enhancing this community, please stop by the Cordillera Ranch Visitors Center for more information.
