NEW BUSINESS:

Chairman Chenault moved to schedule a Town Hall Meeting for January, 2005, said meeting to follow Board- established procedures and to have at least the following items on the agenda:

Topic 1: A discussion of the possibility of creating what is called a “Resale Assessment” that would impose a fee on each future sale of a house. The extra income could be used as a contingency fund or to accumulate funds for future improvement projects.

Topic 2: An initial look at proposed changes to our governing documents (CC&R and By-Laws). A small committee of Association members has been studying the documents to identify areas that maybe appropriate for change. This would only be a first look – any actual changes would require a 2/3 vote of Association members at a later date.

Topic 3: A presentation by Nextel Communications to lease a small piece of Association property for installation of a Nextel cell phone facility. This would include replacing the current flagpole with one similar in height, shape, and color, but approximately twice as large in diameter. Nextel would pay the Association a monthly fee. This agreement would have a potentially long life, being renewed at Nextel’s option periodically.

Topic 4: An interim report from the Ad Hoc Reserve Study Committee, which has been actively looking at an update to our Reserve Study.

Topic 5: A presentation by CCMC on the services they provide to Bellasera, including a discussion of the Community Manager’s role in the community.

Topic 6: A review of the major accomplishments of the Association during the last year.

General Discussion Period.

Discussion of other topics brought up by members in attendance.

The motion was voted on incrementally by topic. The motion carried with Treasurer Agranoff voting No on Topic 3.

At the request of Treasurer Agranoff a discussion was held regarding the procedures for selecting and appointing committee members. Chairman Chenault noted that there are no written procedures, but that since the Association had enough members on the Board (after Declarant phased out) the procedure has been to take applications and try to place people on committees to match their interests and to achieve good community representation on the committees. Since there rarely have been excess applicants, there has not usually been a problem. Chairman Chenault agreed with Treasurer Agranoff that in the future wider consultation among Board members as to committee membership would be appropriate.

Chairman Chenault moved to appoint Brian Ong to serve on the Modifications Committee. The motion carried.

NEXT/UPCOMING MEETING DATE(S):

The next regular scheduled Board meeting will be held December 14, 2004.

Director Ricciardi moved to go into Executive Session. The motion carried.

The Board went into Executive Session at 8:45 P.M.

The total reserve income was ahead year-to-date by $7,500.00. The Reserve Account is at exactly $288,818.17.

Director Tack summarized the mid-year financial by stating:

(a) We will likely end the year with a net excess of revenue over budgeted expenses by approximately $4,000.00
(b) We will need to increase the 2002/3 budget by approximately 439,000 due to the loss of revenue from Del Webb, a potential increase in road repair reserve of $7,000.00, an increase in the repairs and maintenance budget of $22,000.00 and reflecting a potential reduction in the utility budget of $16,000.00.
(c) These projections will be evaluated as input to the forthcoming budget process for 2002/3.

Ms. Bridgforth provided the Board with bids for the work to be done on the signs. One was for approximately $1,400.00 and one for approximately $1,900.00

Director Lamb moved to change the previous approach on this issue, now that the Board knows the approximate cost, and to change the clubhouse monument sign with the addition of the arrow and clubhouse written on the sign.

Director Lamb moved to refer the drafting of the letter, with regard to dog waste, to the Communications Committee. The motion carried.

Pool Lighting -- the pool lights are working, but rats have damaged some of the lighting cable. Ms. Bridgforth reported that the repairs on the cable would be approximately $6,000.00. After the repair work is done, the Board can look at their options with safeguarding the cables to make sure that this does not occur again.

Budget and Finance Committee to see what source the funds will come from. The motion carried.

Security -- Ms. Bridgforth, Mr. Chenault and the Account Manager of Pinkerton have met to discuss and revise the Post Orders.

The charge would be $25.00 per occurrence and a Pinkerton vehicle will be parked in the clubhouse parking lot.

Director Lamb moved to approve an arrangement with Pinkerton, to provide the Association with a 24-hour response service, with regard to solicitors in the neighborhood. The cost will be $25.00 per occurrence. The motion carried.

After debate, the motion did not carry.

Director Lamb then stated that he would be willing to consider the concept of an Enhancement Fee, if additional language were provided to the Board, as to what an Enhancement Fee is and what the money can be spent for.

Director Lamb moved to refer the issue back to the committee for a more complete definition, including potential recommended word changes to the CC&R's or other appropriate documents. The motion carried.

At the front gate, it was noted that the top of one of the posts is torn off. The committee stated that they are going to try to monitor the issue and the amount of money that is spent on lighting.

The committee is going to be working with the landscaping company regarding the irrigation system. They would like to follow through on the irrigation system that was received from the landscapers before the spring.

The committee reported that all the mailboxes in the community have been fixed, re-plastered and painted.

A new garbage container has been purchased for the tennis court area.

The committee will be looking at the streets to see if they need to be resealed, since it is in the Reserve Study to do so every 4 years.

It was suggested to write a letter to the City of Scottsdale asking them to enforce the speed limit. Chairman Chenault stated that he and Ms. Bridgforth were preparing a letter to the city regarding enforcing the speed limit on Lone Mountain Rd. It was suggested to see if the city would install a three-way stop somewhere along the road to slow down the drivers.

Chairman Chenault reported that he met with a representative from a representative from the city in reference to their 75-foot right of way. The city is eventually going to widen the road, but they do not mind if any landscaping is done in that area until such time.

Speeding -- It was noted that there are residents and contractors that drive through the community at high speeds. It was suggested to ask the Security Guards to remind the contractors that come into the community of the speed limit.
