Keep written records/notes. Write down the dates, times you see drug sales or anything suspicious. Write down descriptions of the people involved and their vehicles. Get binoculars out and look more closely if you can. Write down plate numbers. The more information you can feed to PPD, the better chance they'll have of being able to do something. You can get copies of the reports of any calls you make, I think. Talk to whoever is handling the neighborhood watch. It used to be Officer Deaton. Start a neighborhood watch group. It amazes me how forthcoming our police officers are when you meet with them and ask questions. IMO, It isn't just the PPD's job to protect us; it is our job, too.
Anyway, been there, done that. I still have my notes from about 4 years ago! Hah!
Yes! Why does that stretch have to be posted 55 mph? 45 is fine from Payson through Star Valley.
Mestas. Sal Mestas. Every time I see his name in this column it is spelled wrong. He's a great guy - his yard in CC makes me smile!
Offices? I assume you mean Officers...
I give up. I wrote two responses to you, Tom, and managed to lose them both before I could post them!
In a nutshell, if lot owners are upset because some Board officer is on his or her high horse, they should make sure he/she is not re-elected. Run themselves. Get involved and change the way things are managed if they are unhappy. Do what is right! Take a turn on the Board, take on some responsibility for your community.
I think you understand what I am saying. ; )
Pat, I do not know the lady to whom you refer nor when she built her home in CP, but to not read governing docs of your HOA is terribly unwise. The governing documents of an HOA can only be changed by whatever mechanism is in the governing documents. Owners can't change something by a majority vote and move on - unless that is what their HOA docs say. The documents have to be legally changed/notarized per the existing docs and recorded. Plants are all over decks in CP, so - as I said before - your friend is mistaken. Also, ARS requires documents are given to a prospective buyer. I believe the title company usually handles it. If the prospective buyer hasn't yet made an offer they can still ask for and review them. HOAs get a bad rap because lot buyers don't do the right thing & read prior to purchase.
I've headed up an HOA. I get tired of people bashing them. It can be a big pain when folks think they are special and don't have to follow what they signed up to follow.. As long as the Board follows (a) the law/AZ Revised Statutes and (b) CC&RS and (c) your town or city's codes, all is well. If people do not want to follow CC&Rs and Rules & Regs, etc., they should not purchase a home in an HOA community. It is really that simple. Before you purchase a home with an HOA, READ the governing documents you are given!!! They're recorded by the County and online.
The lady who said you cannot have deck planters at CP is 100% wrong. She can and I do.
If you are offended that you have to stop at the gate and give security your name and your friend's name, and you do not care for the neighborhood, then you are right to stay away.
These studies and plans have been going on for years. They pretty much have all said the same thing. TOP never seems to move forward with any of the advice - start with Main Street - they have been given over the years. I hope something actually happens, but won't hold my breath.
And if you think TOP staff will be overwhelmed, then add a couple of people! Stimulate the economy with a couple of decent jobs. Isn't that the idea?
Pat, I know women who dealt with it, didn't regret it, and went on with their lives.
Abortion is a legal medical procedure. That said, how anyone can think it is an idle, devil-may-care decision, whatever the reason, is beyond me.
But like I said, it is legal - and none of anyone's business except the parent(s) and the doctor.
