Summer is almost over.  Tourism started slow in the spring but is finishing strong as we go into the fall season.  If you need proof, just try to make a left turn on the Gulf Beach road between Gulf Shores and the Flora-Bama near the Florida State line.  The future of tourism in our area will be further enhanced by new conference and entertainment developments:

•    Governor Bentley has signed the bill that will clear the way for construction of a new lodge and conference center at the Gulf State Park.
•    A 500 acre entertainment complex is under construction on the Gulf Beach Expressway in Foley.
•    A new Canal Walk under the Highway 59 Bridge featuring the famous Acme Oyster House of New Orleans.
•    A Bob Marley restaurant and Bar within walking distance of Sugar Beach.
•    A  Toby Keith restaurant at the Wharf.
•    New and expanded Beach Fest 2014 at the Hang-out in Gulf Shores

Your staff at Sugar Beach has been working tirelessly during the summer months  keeping up with the cleanliness and maintenance of the complex as well as working on improvement projects.  On a typical day we have LA Pools cleaning and preparing each of our four pools for our early morning guests.  Additionally, other LA pool staff members are busy cleaning the rest rooms, hallways, elevators, parking areas and stairwells. Our maintenance supervisor is always busy changing light bulbs, making general repairs and working on improvement projects.  Most noticeable of the improvement projects are the re-surfacing of the tennis court and the carpeting on the beach walkway.  The following are other projects completed:

•    To conform to the Orange Beach Fire Code, we have installed an automatic dialer in our fire panel that dials the Orange Beach Fire Department in the event of a fire.
•    Our maintenance supervisor has successfully completed a course at the Alabama Fire Sprinkler Association held in Wetumpka, Alabama on the  Inspection, Testing & Maintenance of Fire Pumps. After certification he will perform our weekly pump runs on our fire pumps, rather than paying an outside vendor.
•    Installation of new sodium lights for our east and west pool areas to conform to the recommendations of the City of Orange Beach to lessen the impact of nesting turtles along our shore.
•    Installation of sodium lights in the Gazebos
•    Installation of a volley ball net on the Beach for our guests.
•    Installation of two new pool pumps for the east and middle pools.

We always welcome new sets of eyes and ears when you arrive at Sugar Beach.  If you notice or hear anything needing attention or have a suggestion which may improve our complex, please call me, one of the security guards or Ray Felts our Maintenance Supervisor. Our pledge to you is that we will do our best to professionally maintain Sugar Beach Condominiums to a high standard and help protect your investment.

Resident Manager
