LaMarche - Entrance wall update
Posted on Mar 30th, 2018 Comments (0)

To All Our LaMarche Place Residents:                                                                                          March 30, 2018


We can now update you on the status on our entry wall repair that many of you have inquired about.  We are happy to inform you that we have secured a contractor Xtreme Construction and we should see this construction get started around the end of April.  Xtreme Construction is actually owned by one of the residents in LaMarche.


We understand your frustrations of how long this process has taken, but we stayed focused on putting a new face on our entrance that is more fitting for the elegance of our neighborhood.  We feel that this new improved wall design will accomplish that goal.  We remained determined to apply the insurance proceeds from the wall damage toward new construction instead of repairing the old wall.  Thanks to all of you for being so patient as we worked through this process.  We thank you in advance for being patient with the construction phase as this will likely cause some disruption at the front of our neighborhood.  Also, please inform all your family members to be aware of the construction workers as you drive through this area to protect their safety.


If you are curious to see the new wall design, then you can view this by logging in to the website to see the new wall design.  If you have not signed up yet, then please clink on Register to obtain your login credentials.  For more details on the wall design, you can attend the LaMarche Place POA annual meeting at 10:00 AM on Saturday, April 14 at the Chenal Country Club.  This will be on our agenda at this annual meeting.


We really look forward to the new look at our LaMarche Place entrance.  Thanks again for your patience.

We wanted to provide a status update on our entry wall repair that many of you have inquired about.  We previously secured repair estimates and have collected the insurance money from the driver’s insurance company that was responsible for the damage.
As we mentioned in our previous update, we were creating a design for a new entry.  Since then, a beautiful design has been created for a new improved entrance, but the first estimate we obtained was higher than expected.  We are in the process of securing some other estimates, but we are having difficulty finding a reputable contractor that can provide the construction on this new entry design.  These days, it seems all the good contractors are quite busy and this entry construction is somewhat different than what most contractors are used to.
We welcome any of our residents to come forward with any help and expertise they might have in this area to secure affordable pricing.  This construction includes custom wrought iron fencing and gates, block and stone work, precast concrete, and some electrical work.  So we would need an experienced, reputable and trustworthy contractor that can handle all aspects of this work.  Feel free to contact us if you can help us in this area. (Submit any recommended contractor name to
Thank you for your patience as we move through this process.  We would like to wrap this up as soon as possible and either move forward with this new construction or just repair the existing damaged wall.  We prefer to move forward with the beautiful design that was created which will greatly enhance the appearance of our LaMarche Place neighborhood, but only if it is affordable to do so.

Many of you have been asking about the status of repairing our damaged sign wall at the entrance, so I wanted to give you an update on what is going on and why nothing appears to be happening.  As many of you know, a little over a month ago on the night of October 20th, there was an incident where a driver lost control of their SUV running off the road and into our entry sign which caused the damage you have seen.  This person did have insurance, so we worked through the process of obtaining repair estimates and filing the claim with their insurance company and we have just received reimbursement for the damages.
For some time, the POA board has been discussing the possibility of enhancing the walls at our entrance, but up until that October 20th incident, that discussion had not gone anywhere other than obtaining some ballpark estimates, but we never pursued any design ideas.  After the accident, we immediately started discussions on using this unfortunate opportunity to secure a design to enhance the entrance before we spent the insurance proceeds to repair the damage.  We felt it might be better to apply the insurance proceeds toward the cost of enhancing the walls instead.  We are currently in the phase of creating a design for new enhanced entry walls.  A designer has been hired and is in the process of creating the design.  Once that is completed, we will pursue construction quotes for the design to determine affordability and then work through the approval process with Chenal.
We are working as reasonably fast as we can in this process, so we ask everyone to be patient with us as we work through this.  We will periodically keep you informed about our progress as we move through this process.  Thanks for being patient and understanding.  Please trust that we are working hard to improve the appearance of our LaMarche Place community.  We truly believe that these enhancements we are working towards will help to improve all of our property values.
