As you may know, the PGA WEST Fairways Association's Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions ("CC&Rs") authorize the Declarant to annex additional property into the Association as the Declarant deems appropriate. Currently, CNL Desert Resort, LP is the Declarant for PGA WEST Fairways Association.
Recently, a new development called Bonterra has been proposed adjacent to the Norman Course community, consisting of very high-end homes ranging between 3,950 and 6,900 square feet, in harmony with the sizes of homes surrounding the Norman Course. Although no homes will face onto the golf course property, some of the proposed 39 new homes will include a new concept of featuring wine cellar basements. The Bonterra project sits immediately north of the Turnberry SBA.
Norman Course Residents
The Bonterra development will provide significant benefits to the existing residents of the Norman Course. The developer, Desert Golf Homes Development, working through the PGA WEST Master Association, will pay for the activation of the card gate at the Monroe Street entrance allowing the residents in Bonterra, as well as all residents on Brown Deer Park, Turnberry Way, Tiburon Drive and other residents at the eastern end of the Norman Course convenient ingress and egress from Monroe Street rather than from the Madison Street main gate. This may significantly reduce the traffic flow at the Madison gate, along Kingston Heath, and Royal St. George.
Additionally, the Bonterra residents will become members of the Master Association contributing the assessment amount established by the Master Association for the Norman Course residents toward security, the maintenance of the perimeter walls, landscaping and privacy gates into the Norman Course.
More importantly, the Bonterra project will act as a buffer to the adjacent equestrian communities tempering the negative factors related to an equestrian environment. Without a doubt, this will be an advantage to all residents at the Norman Course.
Concurrently with the opening of the entrance into the Bonterra project directly across from the #6 tee, the existing interior perimeter landscaping and irrigation along Brown Deer Park and Turnberry streets will be renovated to enhance the eastern boundary of the Norman Course community. Enhancements to the front and rear yards of the Turnberry SBA have been in the planning stages for some time. Ultimately the completion of these planned improvements, and the landscape median on Kingston Heath, will conclude long-awaited enhancements to the community and provide a harmony throughout the Norman community.
Entrance to Bonterra
The developer plans to construct a distinctive entrance on the north side of Brown Deer Park into the non-gated Bonterra project directly across from the #6 tee. The approximate 60 foot wide boulevard entry will include median landscaping, a cascading water feature designed to be consistent with the architecture of the new community and will introduce a distinctive entrance for the Bonterra project. The perimeter entry walls along the boulevard entrance will as well contain water features. Maintenance of the Bonterra entry features and common area streets will be the sole responsibility of the Bonterra SBA or sub-association. We believe that this entrance will be architecturally pleasing and will establish the Bonterra project as a quality addition to the Norman Course community.
Furthermore, the residents of PGA WEST and, particularly, the Norman Course community should know that the development of the Bonterra project will proceed under an enhancement protocol consistent with the PGA WEST and Fairway's community standards of excellence.
During the construction of the Bonterra project, all construction traffic will be restricted to an access gate off of Monroe directly into the project. Both the Association and the City of La Quinta are adamant that no construction vehicles will be allowed access through the existing Norman residential streets.
The Board believes that the Bonterra project represents a worthy addition to the PGA WEST Fairways organization, and will further enhance a world class community.
