Esperanza Estates Homeowners Association

Meeting of the Board of Directors

May 20, 2013

Esperanza Estates Ramada

Green Valley, AZ

The meeting was called to order at 12:55 PM to remove the space heaters from the pool area to their summer storage. At 1:15 PM, the meeting was resumed in the Ramada. It was determined that a quorum was present. Director Morse, Director Meyer and President Ellingson were excused absentees.

I. Treasurer's Report: Joan Moreaux presented the financial report; copies are available to homeowners upon request to Joan.

II. Committee Reports:

A. Architectural Control: Jim Lindberg reported that significant water damage has occurred to the fascia and plywood roof deck in the seating area outside the tennis courts. Steps are being taken to hire a local handyman to repair the damage.

B. Capital Projects: No Report.

C. Common Area Maintenance: Dean Hess reported that a palm tree was lost recently. A complaint was received concerning the height of some Oleander bushes in the common area alleyway behind 1106-1118 Circulo del Sur.

D. GVC: Joe McCalpin reported that Pima County seems to be recognizing the problem with deteriorating county-owned streets.  (To read a report on the subject issued by the county, click here.)  Sierrita Mine reportedly has a 24/7 information line to respond to questions about mine operation. A full report on the activities of the Council will be published in the May issue of the Periodico.  (To read the full report, click here.)

E. Neighborhood Relations: No Report

F. Recreational Facilities: Tom Cooke reported that an automatic timer on the pool water supply, donated and installed by Craig Surprise, will help maintain the water level in the pool, potentially saving costly maintenance to the pool pump which has resulted in the past from a too-low water level in the pool.

G. Hospitality: Sam Bernard reported that there would be a July 4th party on the 4th of July.

H. Neighborhood Watch: No report.

I. Enhancement: Barb McCalpin reported that a roll-down screen, similar to others in the Ramada, will be installed along the north side of the kitchen area to reduce the wind in the area behind the counter. Enhancement requested board permission to install decorative tile on the arches at the pool entrances. Permission was granted by a voice vote of the Board.

J. Gardeners: Bill Berdine presented a written report to the Board on the activities of the Group. (To read the full report, click here.)

K. Public Arts Club: Kevin Welsh reported that the next Movie will be a 'dive-in' beach movie with attendant frivolity, hot dogs, and popcorn. He also reported on site selection for a pueblo village public art piece being planned for the EE trail entrance on Vereda Calma.

III. Old Business: None.

IV. New Business: EE resident and SAV member Gary Chelseth offered a reminder that, during our increasingly warm weather, leaving a pet in a closed car is both dangerous for the animal and puts the vehicle owner at risk of being ticketed.

The Meeting was adjourned at 1:35 PM.
