NO Change in Gate Operation, March 10, 2016 by Peter J. Kampa, General Manager

Despite what you may have heard on the street or read in recent email messages, the Saddle Creek Community Services (CSD) Board of Directors is NOT planning to vote on keeping the entrance gates open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.  A recent decision by Castle and Cooke to no longer pay for staffing the privacy gates on weekends was discussed in a special CSD Board meeting of the CSD Board held on March 1. Castle & Cooke had mistakenly believed that they could just leave the gates open without consulting with the CSD.  At that meeting, the Board clearly stated their intent to keep the gate operation exactly as it has been for the past several years; closed at night and staffed at the expense of Castle & Cooke Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays; or leave them closed 24 hours per day, seven days per week. General Managers Pete Kampa (CSD) and Rick Morgan (Golf Course/Castle &Cooke) were asked by the board to meet together to reach a solution on the gate staffing and report back to the board at CSD’s next meeting, scheduled for March 15.

The discussion about this issue during the CSD Board meeting on the 15th is to give the board information, and to consider an agreement with Castle & Cooke for the payment of costs associated with staffing the gates. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting and all CSD Board meetings held on the third Tuesday of each month, 2:00 PM at the Lodge.  Board meeting agendas are posted on the bulletin boards in the Lodge and Sports Club as well as on the CSD website 72 hours in advance of our meetings. Also on the website are gate procedures and regulations should you want additional information about its operation  If you have any questions regarding the operation of the Privacy Gate or community road system, please contact Site Manager Greg Hebard at (209) 785-0100, or email
