IT’S YOUR FUTURE
Following is the nine-month Wellington Greens Comprehensive Planning Process to be utilized in developing a TEN-YEAR COMP PLAN to guide the growth & development of Wellington Greens moving forward into the future and will be known as “VISION 2033”.
To maintain& improve the Wellington Greens living experience for current & future residents while increasing the values of all Wellington Greens properties.
A ten-year Comprehensive Plan that will serve as a blueprint to guide the Association as we move forward into the future of Wellington Greens
Transparency of the process is of utmost importance to the success of the process.
Input of Wellington Greens stakeholders, I.E. property owners, residents, committees, staff & the board, is not only encouraged but will be proactively solicited.
This is a nine-month process and will involve utilizing a variety of planning tools that will include surveys/questioners, and facilitated (structured) meetings with stakeholders, I.E. property owners, residents, staff, & the board.
The goal will be to have the final Comprehensive Plan document available for approval & adoption at the Wellington Greens Association annual meeting in October of 2021.
INITIAL AREAS OF FOCUS
Amenities to the “Wellington Greens Living Experience” beyond golf & awesome common areas.
Full utilization of club house & surrounding areas
Increasing social interactions while building a sense of community.
Necessary Capital Improvements & Expenditures as well as the long-term sustainability of Wellington Greens financial position will be a priority.
Alternative/Additional Revenue Sources
Identifying, investigating & vetting alternative & additional revenue sources to the association over & above the homeowner monthly fees.
COST OF PROJECT
Only “necessary out of pocket itemized” expenses experienced by the committee, the board and/or staff will be allowed and only with approval of the board. This would include such things as printing, postage, copying, meeting necessities such as post-it’s, markers, things like that. Most of the expense will involve effectively communicating with & engaging the community throughout the process. On the very high side, less than $1,000 over the course of the nine-month project.

SURVEY RESULTS DATA
May, 26, 2021
In April of 2021 the Wellington Greens Home Owners Association Board & the Long-Range Planning Committee conducted a survey of Wellington Greens residents & property owners in an effort to gather input & opinions that will inform the Board & Planning Committee as they move forward in developing a ten-year Comprehensive Plan that will serve as a blueprint to guide the Association as we move forward into the future of Wellington Greens with the stated mission, “To maintain & improve the Wellington Greens living experience for current & future residents while increasing the values of all Wellington Greens properties”.
The following is the “raw” data from that survey. The next step will be to “slice, dice and arrange” the data into a format that will be of use to the board, committee and residents of Wellington Greens as we move forward on the Vision 2033 Project
IT’S YOUR FUTURE
VISION 2033: is a yearlong process being undertaken by the Wellington Greens HOA Board to develop a 10-year comprehensive plan that will serve as a blueprint to guide the association as we move forward into the future of Wellington Greens. In other words, what will Wellington Greens look like 10 years from now?
The mission of the project is to maintain & improve the Wellington Greens living experience for current & future residents while increasing the values of all Wellington Greens properties.

1) I AM AN OWNER RESIDENT: 92
TOTAL RESPONSES: 96
2) WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU LOVE THE MOST – YOUR FAVORITE THING – ABOUT WELLINGTON GREENS?
The tranquil vibe & location
The beautiful commons areas
The location. Quite most days
The beauty, quietness and safety of the campus
It is so pretty and every home is unique. Seems friendly

Park like surroundings – view out window
Beautiful grounds. Lots of green. The golf course
Ambiance – – diverse style of units, grassy open spaces, trees, guest parking and flowering trees in spring
The feeling of being out of the city due to all the trees & green space
The overall good quality of WG, or in other words, our well-maintained campus
Attractive landscaping – quite areas
Quiet & green spaces
The quite atmosphere
I also appreciate the beautiful grounds. Very good maintenance crew, and the board’s organizational work
Trees, grounds keeper & crew, common areas, (all related)
Trees & grass
Golf course & community
Specious commons, well maintained units & grounds
The beautiful campus
All the trees & green space
The safe neighborhood & location
It’s calm and quite here

It feels like a village or small town within a big city
The common areas are Beautiful!
Proximity to activities, use to be close to work
Snow removal & grounds upkeep
Great green spaces
Neighbors (court community) & trees / green space
The houses, the space in them is great. No dead areas you can’t do much with
Well established quite neighborhood. Big trees. Well maintained golf course. Nice big commons areas
The grounds and I love my own home
The big maples in the commons area on Old Post
Without question, the golf course and the “maintenance free” campus of grass, trees, etc. By “maintenance free” I mean of course maintained by me. One of the happiest days of my life was getting rid of my lawn mower, fertilizer spreader, and snow blower and move to Wellington Greens
We had looked at Wellington Greens in the 60’s when it was being developed, but it did not meet our needs at the time. We kept our eyes open and when the time came when it made sense to downsize from a six-bedroom house and the unit we live in now became available it did not take long for us to decide. But it probably would not have occurred to us had it not been for the golf course
Thus any consideration of the long-range Planning committee MUST, above all else, consider proper maintenance of the golf-course – we know, for example, that maintaining (replacing, improving?) the watering system is critical
Majestic, mature landscape
Not to be cliché, but I love how green it is. (And quiet)
All the commons areas, trees
The Green spaces
Quality, well maintained homes
The area, trees & location
The lawns being taken care of
No mowing or snow shoveling – Golf course
My court – Neighbors – Campus beauty
The commons areas, mature trees
The grounds are very well kept
Large common areas, mature trees
Upkeep of grounds
Yard / Snow Maintenance
Provides a nice postponement to a need to move to a “nursing” home
No yard work + no snow removal
Calmness and neighborly wave – low stress
Neighbors in courtyards and wide-open well-maintained commons
We love the greenspace & trees
I feel as if I’m living in at resort
The landscaping, trees, and landscapes. But one thing is the gorgeous landscaping
The trees and the quite nature of the neighborhood
We enjoy the quite privacy, with unobstructed view of nature
The community of friendly people
The beauty – Birds, Trees, Green Belts
3) IF YOU HAD A MAGIC WAND, WHAT WOULD BE THE ONE THING YOU WOULD CHANGE ABOUT WELLINGTON GREENS?
The house colors. Everything is brown or green. 70s
Add more trees to replace those lost
Some small flowering trees or shrubs in my back yard, common area. Keeping the area open but interesting
Assoc fees to high
Renegotiate garbage fees with Niederhause. They do a great job.
HOA fees to high
The association dues are high for those who don’t use the golf course area. Access to a pool would be great too
A berm or other noise abatement structure along 70th street like the wall along 70th North of South street. It’s so noisy here, can’t enjoy outdoor area
Nothing of Wellington Greens, but unhappy about the planted roses in front of our cul-de-sac. There should be something more low maintenance yet not costly to all residents
Unilateral decisions to change on campus” Trees cutting them down “without member votes, (healthy trees)
Being able to put in requests for yard/grass needs online.
Better mowing and yard care. I spray my own dandelions and pick up sticks. Trimming, edging not done on a regular basis.
Better care of common areas behind my home. Mulch under trees where needed
Drainage on hole # 5 and along South street by # 9
Cure ash trees so they could avoid destruction.
No rentals allowed
An agreed upon service to help with squirrels / bats in the roofs
Update paint colors for all units. Get rid of wood shingles.
Communication between residents, Dan & the board
I would like the exteriors and landscaping of ALL units in WG to be well maintained
Upgrade to all streets
Pharmacy – small grocery
Eliminate golf course – more care for common areas
Add swimming pool
No renters, rentees
More trees, especially flowering ones
Individual units should be kept up – equally – units/yards are allowed to look like hell. Some folks are allowed to keep vehicles for months in the same spot
Return of the tennis court – not sure if that is possible now, or pickle ball court
All the homes would stay beautiful – without money being spent.
Having all homeowners being compliant with the rules & all dues paid on time
Quit cutting down trees
Update painting codes to be more modern
Help residents who have disabilities plowing snow up to the house – from garage to front door
Better collection of leaves in common areas, especially in autumn
Concrete – Redesign and modernize
Less hardscape, more landscape – it’s dated, ugly design and could be so much better w/planning
Have better access to clubhouse. To utilize it more
Also clean up commons area behind my unit
Allow more freedom for homeowners to update or improve their properties
Area for community garden
Upgrade some landscaping on south side of Old Post
I’d rebuild the clubhouse
Better controls over investors buying units as rentals and not maintaining them and renting to people who damage the area & property
HOA dues are HIGH! I do not golf
Parking lots for excess cars. Tired of finding people parked in my driveway
Encouraging younger families in our area.
Plus, the pool is good for impact activities for older members
Alcohol free zone – clubhouse/golf
I would add a swimming pool
Have a list of “handymen”. People that could help with maintenance, yard – Removal of bushes
Tear down the clubhouse – build something more usable (pickleball courts; more usable space with deck
The separating fences would be nice if they were wood or mental! The plastic can be a little loud on windy days (easy to clean though)
Utilize clubhouse – It needs updates to make it more inviting for people to use
Keep grass spaces greener
Reduce the number of squirls
Replace all the garage doors that face on Old Post (north end) & all the cement because it’s ugly
The availability of a “Concierge” for want of a better term. I wish we had somebody – a handyman, trouble shooter, maintenance coordinator – who would be on call for members of the association who could respond to requests for assistance in dealing with “problems” – little and big, all the way from changing batteries in smoke alarms to unplugging gutters to securing people for painting, roofing, repair of big and little things, landscape matters in our own little properties, etc. I would not be looking for somebody on staff to perform these activities, only to have the knowledge and time to locate proper people who could (and would show up!) do these things and see that they got done. It would be up to the resident to pay for all work as necessary
For most people at Wellington Greens, I suspect the initial move here was for “downsizing” and most were then capable of most DIY projects, as we were. But as we get older, it becomes more difficult, sometimes impossible, to do things. The next obvious thing is to move to a retirement facility where all that maintenance stuff is somebody else’s responsibility. But there are probably lots of people who would prefer not to do that, at least “not yet” and help with all of these necessities would be a godsend.
I realize it would be impractical to hire a person to be available for such purposes for all 200+ units. The cost (in terms of increased monthly dues) would be extensive and the “need” would be limited to a minority of residents.
But you asked for a “magic wand” idea – this was mine
If landscaping changes are on board in the owner’s corner, efforts made to discuss with owner prior to work and solicit owner’s input. Some work needs personal consultation
Would love a swimming pool at club house
All of the light posts would be cleaned regularly
Better lighted court signs
That people would obey the leash law
More social activities
A swimming pool, larger nice clubhouse
Would love if 7411 Old Post could paint like our neighbors – 2 of us for paint colors instead of all of us
Also more reminders for people NOT to feed coyotes or leave food out
Way too difficult to try to change when we all have to paint at the same exact time, so it stays ugly
The weeds and Covid 19
That all units must maintain their units
Paint color option in Kimberly Court; change to vinal siding as option
No more increasing of association fees
In winter, no snow blades on grass
I would like some sort of interaction among residents, perhaps a once-a-month social hour or tail-gate before football games
Better trimming around homes
A tree very close to patio – half the time the area is not mowed or trimmed
Add trash / recycle
Board follow through
Make a reciprocal arrangement with Carnage Hills neighborhood to allow us to use their swimming pool
Keep trash cans outside my garage stinks!
Slow traffic down at South St. & Old Post
Those residents who don’t golf should have free access to clubhouse once a year
Exterior Insurance Included as other HOA’s in Lincoln
Wellington court: the mail boxes look decrepit
Practice area on course with sand trap
More opportunities for social interaction with residents
The flat roofs. (why flat roofs in a place that gets lots of snow?!?)
Enforcement of the Covenants and By-Laws. People are so anxious to move to our beautiful community, but don’t take time to understand the obligations that they have living here entails
Have more assistance w/the mowing & shoveling of the walks & maybe a pool! (I know that’s two things)
More community activities to meet other people
Maybe add an area for community gardens
4) THE THREE MAJOR WELLINGTON GREENS AMENITIES ARE OUR GOLF COURSE, MAINTAINED COMMONS AREAS, AND THE CLUB HOUSE, (PARTIALLY RENOVATED. WHAT OTHER AMENITIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE AT WELLINGTON GREENS THAT WOULD ADD VALUE TO THE WELLINGTON GREENS LIVING EXPERIENCE, AND/OR CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR PROPERTY’S VALUE?
Swimming pool (with adult swimming time)
The club house is in need of total update – the fireplace takes up space
Enlarge the clubhouse
Concrete repair. Water, snow backs into my garage
A pool access would be wonderful
More social activities. Coffee, other gatherings to get to know people (now during pandemic and this may start up again
I say keep everything status quo. Don’t change anything
Enlarge clubhouse. Class B liquor license at clubhouse
Drive ways with few cracks filled with black “tar” maintained better.
Concrete replacement. Better maintenance of common areas
Kitchen renovation at clubhouse – open wall between kitchen / dining area
A “Greek theater” type seating area next to clubhouse (for performances), with a fire pit so gatherings could be held (with music) or just socializing and drinks
More outdoor music. Workout equipment at club house
Enhance landscape. – – benches, seating areas for visiting. Areas of interest (rocks, flowers) new plantings, trees, flowers
Dog run, playground/park, access to Carriage Park pool & tennis courts
I don’t see a need for additional amenities. Instead, I would like our golf course and common areas to continue to be well maintained and the renovation of the clubhouse to be completed
Exercise facility within clubhouse
Pharmacy – small grocery
Provide walking/running paths
A dream – swimming pool. Fitness Center
More social activities now that Covid is addressed (dogie meet & greet, dinner club, book club, etc.
I believe if we were allowed to pay a fee to use the pool across the street – some would pay
Tennis court, pickle ball court, basketball court clubhouse kitchen update. New attractive round mental picnic tables with attached seats near clubhouse
The current amenities are perfect
Swimming pool, dog run, fitness center
Fire pits, a pool, shuffle board, replace trees that were cut down, (treat trees, don’t cut down
Swimming pool in community
Properties aren’t going to rise w/additional amenities. To help property values – need to have residences maintained, improve landscape & have a plan, redo concrete design, update paint colors
Use of clubhouse
Make the clubhouse more usable with outdoor seating areas either with a balcony or fixing the bottom back with stares, tables, etc.
Plant more trees
Something simple. Signs to notice how far walked, or clear-cut walking trails
A pool that can be open to the public for a fee
Tennis, badminton, swimming
Fenced dog run
Pickle ball / tennis court
Community fire pit. I love having friends around a good fire but we can’t have one next to the house. A usable pit in one of the commons areas would be the icing on the cake
More activities by individual courts since activities for the whole community are difficult
The major amenity available to many neighborhood “Associations” is a swimming pool, but we would not suggest planning for one even in a long-range plan. In addition to the initial cost, the continuing maintenance costs (cleaning, insurance, even some necessary staffing, etc.) would really make it prohibitive, even if residents were willing to tolerate the associated nuisance.
But we probably could manage the upkeep of a tennis court to replace the one taken over by the maintenance facility (which was an entirely proper thing to do at the time). If we could install one, the first issue is “whare”. The only obvious area is in the triangular space between Regency Court and Gramercy Court on the north side of Old Post Road. An area down the hill toward the golf course could be leveled off, a concrete slab installed and proper equipment for tennis, perhaps a couple of basketball goals, a volleyball net, maybe even a curb around the edge so it could be flooded for ice skating in the winter. The area could also serve as a staging area for musical events (such as those attempted by the hospitality Committee in recent years – sparsely attended but enjoyed by those of us who participated). The central location and the hill providing a convenient space for chares and blankets for audience might help to make such events more possible and successful
Just brainstorming – but that’s what you wanted, we think.
Fire pit at clubhouse
Landscape street appeal at entrance to each court. Some like mine, are nowhere close to appealing
A gym and just a bigger clubhouse w/more to offer (restaurant/bar) would be great
The clubhouse is not visible to outside WG. I think you could promote the clubhouse as a venue open to the public
Better upkeep on the concrete, but know that is expensive
Also, I would like it if all trash set out for pickup would be covered
An indoor driving range
Swimming – tennis courts with basketball court
Upgrade courtyard pavement & upkeep. There are many cracks in Kimberly Court
Finish renovating clubhouse
more interaction among residents, perhaps a monthly social hour or tail-gate before football games
dog run, shuffleboard, badminton
continue upkeep of commons and structures
Something added to clubhouse to increase usage, deck, outdoor gathering space, etc.
Annual sewer inspection
Natural for Birds, Bees – Nature without pesticides, herbicides – leave it natural
Put gym / workout equipment in club house
Raise rental amount on clubhouse
Fitness classes such as yoga at clubhouse
Wifi in club house
Pool, (or arrangement with Carriage Hills. Gym in clubhouse. Park with playground, horseshoes, shuffleboard, etc. and areas to socialize. Best location is in commons area across from clubhouse. Stage for concerts, Jazz on the green, Shakespeare on the green etc.
1) A workout room or small gym with cardio and weights
2) A community swimming pool
2) A community theater/movie room
Benches, more activities at the club house
Lighted court entrance sign (solar?) and brighter lights in court lamps, Safety
A pool. A work out space w/ gym equipment
Perhaps add pickleball courts
I’m happy with what’s here
5) IN AN EFFORT TO KEEP MONTHLY FEES DOWN, THE ASSOCIATION ALSO RELIES ON OTHER INCOME SOURCES, (I.E. NONRESIDENT GOLF MEMBERSHIPS, RENTING CLUBHOUSE FOR EVENTS, ETC.), WHAT OTHER AVENUES WOULD YOU SUGGEST THE BOARD & COMMITTEES INVESTIGATE TO GENERATE NON-DUES REVENUE FOR THE ASSOCIATION?
Annual events that invite the city into our space. Easter egg hunt. Limited # of attendees draws demand. Cost per person. Christmas parade. 4th of July patriotic ceremony
I proposed my non-profit use it but the board shot it down
One time golf fee – for those who may simply want a one-day pass
Charge small fee for mixers. Beer, wine tasting, coffee, craft shows and club meetings
On premises person who could “weed” for residents who can’t & have the residents who need that person pay a weeding fee or monthly fee depending on how often they would need it
Golf lessons in small groups for youth (member & non member
I cannot come up with anything that would not be added cost to homeowners
Charge for permits to park cars outside in common areas. Must have tags
Complete clubhouse and rase rent
Donations from residents for specific projects
Community garden, (lease space)
Different type of tournaments with entry fee
Badminton, board games, card games, etc.
Purchase wreath for Christmas
I don’t know of any other revenue sources
Put a bar in the clubhouse for all members and non-members
Make golf course self-supporting
Donated auction items for sell – preferably antiques or rear paintings
Increase monthly dues for rental unites – maybe double!! This may discourage rentals and/or eliminate the problem
Annual golf invitational. (scramble)
Social events in the past generated some revenue. However, very difficult to get people to serve and work on this type of committee or endeavors. Did help residents to meet each other. Could seek involvement from surrounding areas
See if technology exists to water meter each residence w/o huge expense
Community functions with small fee (cover charge)
Ping pong tournament
Renting tables & chares for events, garage sales, etc.
A rental garden area
Maybe a large garage sale where residents donate items
Fees for public pool use four neighboring home owners
Assoc fees could be based off of property value or based off of # of bedrooms in unit or the size of the units as they take up more property
Sale of WG items – shirts/jackets/ties/Pinterest/clocks/watches
I’m honestly not sure
- First priority: continue renovation and improvement of clubhouse, especially kitchen area first, to make it more attractive for rental
- Improve outdoor area in back of clubhouse, including increasing the size of the concrete slab to accommodate more tables and chares, and perhaps installing a barbecue grill. Accompanied with making the inside of the lower level more attractive, such improvements might make more “outdoor events” including events involving the golf course more feasible
- Possibly promote “minimal” golf events/tournaments. Rather than put ideas here, I will direct my thoughts to the golf committee. If they think the idea has merit, they could forward to the Long-Range Committee
Explore government grant opportunities
Have we done golf tournaments?
Renting clubhouse for events
Perhaps a plant sale. Owners could pot some of their plants and donate them to a plant sale with all proceeds going to the association
Adult Ed Courses, Cards, History, etc.
Festival, Kids (youth) or adult golf clinic
Gym – specific to 55+
Not sure at this time
Nothing, otherwise there would be more traffic. Home is to come here and relax
Raising non-resident membership fees
Flea market. Market Golf, Gym, billiards at club house to surrounding neighbor hoods. Bingo, Casino night. Car wash, Kiosks with advertising
Increase golf fees
Some type of fundraising
Golf tournaments by age

16) ANY ADDITIONAL COMMENTS OR INPUT YOU MAY HAVE
I believe the clubhouse could be rented to anyone if it was super nice & bigger for more people. It leaks
We liked having our yard bags picked up. Why the change?
Better lighting is needed at entrances to courts. Signs very dark at night and easy to miss
We moved to Wellington Greens in 1982. It feels like home
I am not always able to find info on web site or workorder sheets in mailbox at club house.
When Tom Johnson was on board, we had music events. Would like to see this again. Weekends only please
Be more aggressive in collecting dues in arrears. Put up “pick up poop” signs and poop waste baskets
What can I do to receive a golf sticker for this year? I can’t find mine in the male
Organize groups of residents that like to do landscape work & be with others. Care for areas of interest.
Resume talks with Carriage Park – – pool and tennis courts
Greg says he likes the new board members
More focus on maintaining what we have. Be more caring
We need to move towards more maintenance free exteriors. Vinal windows, etc. fiber cement boards
Look around, architectural harmony (sameness) is boring!
Introduce some charm & uniqueness to the homes. Article IX
Not at all looking to the future
It seems that 75% or more effort is put into the golf course. Why not try and put more effort into the green spaces so that residents who do not play golf feel like they are getting some attention for their monthly dues during the summer
I’m curious if there is a tree replacement plan & if so what it consists of
It would be nice to have access to pool at Carriage Park
Don’t allow people to change their roofs without consent of all neighbors. Poor terrible communication. Looks terrible because all roofs should be replaced, not sections
Allow solar panels on houses.
Work w/ Nebr arbor team, NRD, etc.to update and expand landscape
I appreciate the efforts being made to keep this the nice community it is. Thank You
I strongly feel a pool would be a great additional amenity
- Convert all gasoline power equipment to electric. Install electric charging stations within Wellington greens
- Use solar panels & geothermal energy to help with electrical costs. Could be a cost share amount LES, NPP, owners & wellington Association. Excess kilowatts provided will be bought by LES, net metering
Wellington Association buys a lottery ticket every week – 52 x $2 = $104.00. What can we do with $100 Million!!!
Greatly appreciate the work of the Board and the Grounds crew
Would like be interested in sitting on the Long-term Planning Committee (if there is room)
I haven’t met all my neighbors yet, but those I have been helpful and so great
We know that the Concrete Committee has been very active in planning for increased replacement of concrete within the community. We would recommend strongly that provisions be made for replacement of individual driveways on the bases of cost shared between owner and Association when improvements are made in Courts (we want to be #1 on the list when they come to Wellington Court)
Encourage opportunity to NAP have voice in major matters for this community is where I belong. If court captains aren’t participating in meetings important that new court captain be named so that all courts be represented
An outdoor pool
I certainly appreciate our maintenance crew. They do a great job
Quality maintenance of buildings – Thank You
Thank you for asking!
Thank you very much for everything
I’m sorry for my writing
We feel golfing residents should shoulder more of the golf course costs than non-golfing
Food Truck social – surcharge to HOA
Colby Ridge gift card to new resident
Thank you board for all you do
Dan & crew do a great job
Better relationship between board & residents. They are paying the bills
The grounds keepers do a great job of keeping up the grounds. The one thing are the small branches which are mowed over as well as all of the acorns and this makes it difficult area to be on in the grass due to all of the small pieces. I have a small area of grass behind my home. It would take two swipes of the large mower. It would be great to have this option. Especially when I see many elderly people that would benefit by this service as well. I am aware that a lot of the HOA dues goes to keep up the golf greens. I did not move here for the golfing. Maybe that was a mistake. However I do like the area a lot. Even if we can’t have a pool. There is the neighboring pool @ Carriage Glen that would be nice if we could work out an arrangement. I really see it being used
I’m grateful for how things are kept up
* concern about increase in coyote population
* commons areas racking, leaves, pine needles, (more attention to)
I think the grounds crew does an exceptional job having [done?] that work professionally for awhile
