The Lake & Park Committee is responsible for the functional and aesthetic maintenance and improvements of Nantucket Lake and its park, both designated as Commons to be managed by our HOA.

Lake:  In 2015 Mark Johnson presented a fish stocking proposal to spend $3,000 of HOA funds, and we also solicited donors to supplement the these funds. The board subsequently approved the expenditure of $3,000 and another $3,000 was raised by private donations. Mark Johnson and Ken Knauer stocked lake with bluegill, then bass, over the summer of 2015. The committee believes that the lake still needs vegetation for better cover to support the bass.

Park:  The board put the park back on a regular mowing schedule starting in July 2017. The committee in 2017 started an initiative to improve the aesthetics of the park by trimming the trees and better maintaining the waterline.

Dam Commons:  In August 2017 the Board asked the committee to work with the Maintenance Committee to improve the aesthetics of the common area between the dam and the Hwy 6 frontage road. Trees were subsequently trimmed and we starting mowing the grass at regular intervals, so that this common area is now suitable for recreation. Improvements are on-going.
