Esperanza Estates Homeowners Association

Meeting of the Board of Directors

October 19, 2009

Esperanza Estates Ramada

Green Valley, AZ

The meeting was called to order at 1:00 by President Thomas Cooke.

Board members present: Joe McCalpin, Barb McCalpin, Bruce Liljegren, Joan Moreaux, Sandy Reed, Stoney Brown, and Sam Barnard.

Board members absent: Absent but excused was Bob Hunton.

Announcements: There no announcements.

Acceptance of previous minutes: There were no corrections to the September minutes, which are considered approved.

Treasurerís report: Joan Moreaux gave the treasurerís report. She provided details of the current financial statements, and reported generally the HOA is operating under budget to this point in the year. HOA reserves are reaching a comfortable level. She will be forming a budget committee work on the 2010 budget, and a meeting will be called shortly. Entries on the financial statements are generally unremarkable. A few questions were asked by residents attending the meeting and answered satisfactorily.


Architectural: Bob Hunton left a written report since he could not be present. He and Bruce Liljegren did a survey in September to locate non-conforming paint on structures in EE, and several were located. Twelve letters were sent out, and of those, four have corrected the problems, and there are indications the balance are working toward compliance as well. It is believed matters are pretty well under control at the current time.

Capital Projects: There are currently no on-going capital projects.

Common Areas: Stoney Brown reported that matters are pretty well under control in the common areas. Cutting will be beginning on the Mexican Bird of Paradise plants shortly to trim them down for the winter season. The landscapers have been working in the alleyways recently, trying to take care of ongoing matters that occur in them. All things considered, there are no particular problems of concern.

GVCCC: Bruce Liljegren reported briefly on the recent GVCCC activities. A full report will appear in the October Periodico.

Neighborhood Relations: Sam Barnard reported on a few matters involving parking issues that had been handled, but there are no matters of concern. Peace and harmony is prevailing in our neighborhood.

Recreational Facilities: Tom Cooke reported there have been several maintenance matters handled recently in the Ramada, and a few more to take care of. They will be handled.

Hospitality Committee: Sam Barnard reported the Hospitality Committee held its first Hamburger Nite earlier this month and it was fairly well attended for this early in the fall. More events are being planned for later on, which will include more Hamburger Nites and other parties.

Neighborhood Watch: Mary Beth Wallace reported all is well with the Neighborhood Watch Committee. All Block Captaincy positions except one are filled, and candidates are being solicited for that one.

Enhancement Committee: Geri Lindberg reported the Enhancement Team will hold a garage sale this coming Friday, and all proceeds from the articles sold will go into the teamís coffers for use later in the fall on Ramada enhancements. A cocktail party was held Sunday to honor the volunteers who had done the painting work in the Ramada this past summer.

Old Business: Sandy Reed reported on the Love Story Project, which has had about 20 entries so far. More are being solicited, and the end product will be published later on.

New Business: Tom Cooke reported that it was necessary to remove the patio heaters from the Ellingsonís garage, as they will be returning shortly. A thank you note will be sent to the Ellingsons.

Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 1:55 p.m.
