LETTER FROM YOUR NEW PRESIDENT:
The USCR Board of Directors recently convened with the newly elected directors attending their first meeting.
The Board agreed that the main concern among owners is when the roads and buildings are going to be repaired and brought to a standard worthy of a five star resort.
Tim Copp, director of Maintenance, presented a list of projects and requests to begin this process. The board, along with Mr. Copp, prioritized the list and authorized him to begin moving forward with the items needing immediate attention. Bids are being taken for larger projects needing to be addressed throughout the park.
The boards next task was to address how to acquire the capital funds needed to finance the much need improvements. The goal is to complete these projects without borrowing money or depleting the emergency funds on hand. The cost of materials, services, and items needed to operate daily and offer the amenities and services to our owners has increased and are projected to continued to rise in 2022. The board looked at several options to acquire the necessary resources to begin necessary improvements and not sacrifice the services offered daily to our owners. Research was done to insure that we continue to be the best value in north Georgia. We looked a the fees and charges in other campgrounds in our area. All of the data was considered and the board voted to increase maintenance fees for 2022. This is the first increase in three years. Therefore, the 2022 Maintenance fees will increase from $450 top $550 per membership.
Please know that this decision was not easy. The board will strive to maximize the return on every dollar spent.
Every need and project will not be completed in the next year, but there must be a starting point. The board is eager and ready to begin the process of making USCR the crown jewel of North Georgia.
Respectfully sub mitted,
Randy Frame, President
