As we begin to see the daffodils blooming, we hope you are dreaming of hot sunny days around the pool! We are excited to gear up for the 2022 season at Woodmont Rec.
WRA Fiscal update
As a reminder, WRA has been running as a neighborhood pool since 1962. We are a tax-exempt non-profit, neighborhood owned recreation association. We are 100% volunteer board run. If you would like to know more about our organization you can access the bylaws here.
For the first time in many years, the WRA reported a healthy profit. This is an exciting time for WRA. During the off-season, we have made some significant investments that will improve your experience at WRA and help ensure its financial security moving forward.
$27,000 Replace all 11 Skimmers (basically the pool filter system, will reduce hair/debris) – work starts March 1
$14,700 New Roof for the pool building was completed in December and looks great!
$17,000 For 120 New Chairs with a life expectancy of 15 yrs (due to supply chain issues these are scheduled for delivery close if not shortly after we open in May)
$5,000 to overhaul the landscaping around the perimeter of the pool. We have also budgeted for this to be maintained throughout the season
$3,800 to remove 3 trees that were threatening the pool and damaging the filtration system
A number of other smaller cosmetic upgrades including paint, signage and storage are ongoing.
We are seeking applications for the role of pool manager so please help us recruit!
Fiscal Situation Moving Forward
To maintain our good progress, begin to create a long term investment plan, address and keep up with the increased labor and material costs, we will continue to make small increases to our membership fee.
We still need help!
If you’re anything like us, you can see a million little things that need doing around the pool. Please know we all see different things and we are volunteer-run so there isn’t someone on tap and ready to resolve the issue. We are eager for member-driven projects to be completed! Our accounts don’t have a huge amount of flexibility for high dollar projects, but if you are willing to take the lead on organizing a project we can often swing for paint, wood, nails etc….Let us know! Reach out to Sarah (Treasurer) to propose a plan to the board.
Membership Plans for 2022
We have maintained our membership structure for the 2022 season. We will explore opening one-month options after June 1st if our capacity allows.
We hope this clarifies and modernizes our fee structure to accommodate everyone in all situations. If there is something that you don’t fit into or if you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Cory (membership) as we strive to ensure everyone can join.
All tiers have the ability to pre-pay the whole summer now or set up monthly instalments. We are offering early bird pricing till April 17th.
MVOP is pre-billed for all and upon completion is reimbursed back to you. If you sign up to help with all the pool opening tasks you can have your MVOP knocked out and refunded back before the pool even opens.
