When White Mountain Vacation Village was conceived, a clubhouse was envisioned. Since the Association did not have funds or credit history to construct a clubhouse the developer borrowed money to build it. The money had to be repaid by the Association. In order to accomplish repayment in a fair and equitable manner, a lease between the developer and the Association was created.
The lease payment generates enough money to repay the loan. The lease began on August 1st 2005 and is for twenty years. At the end of the lease term, the Association has the option to purchase the clubhouse as long as certain conditions have been met. One of those conditions is that the tenant (Association) has paid the Minimum Guaranteed Rental and all other monetary obligations owed to landlord under the lease.
Arizona law requires that consideration be given when real property is sold. To satisfy this requirement, the Association must pay the landlord one dollar ($1.00) at the end of the lease.
The full lease may be reviewed on the Village People website. It can be found on the Documents, Forms and Downloads page.

The Advisory Committee is at it again. They proposed a new air conditioning unit for installation in the kitchen in 2017. The Board postponed approval until further study could be conducted to determine exactly what would be needed. Mountain Comfort Heating & Cooling will begin installation on Monday morning.
The Advisory Committee proposal to purchase a clamping tool for homeowner use is now being implemented. A clamping tool was purchased and installed in a locked case.
All of the shut-off valves in the Village are connected from the water supply line in the street to individual shut-off valves via a flexible water line. These valves have a life and could fail when you least expect it.
If you need to turn off the water to repair your shut-off valve you will need to have a clamping tool to close off the line. Most plumbers can repair the valve but do not have a clamping tool.
The tool is located near the club house. It is available for use by contacting any Advisory Committee member or HOAMCO for the key to unlock the case. The sign out sheet is inside the case.
This is a valuable maintenance tool. Please return it when your repair is completed so that others may take advantage of it.

The Transition Committee welcomes Roy Chamberlin. Roy and wife, Leslie, have owned property at the Village for several years and spend nine months here and the other three in the Mesa area.
Roy was an educator for thirty-seven years teaching middle school math and counseling high schoolers. He served in many leadership positions as math department chair, counseling department chair, district math coordinator, Career Ladder Executive Board and as the head negotiator for the district which included the finance committee for over 15 years.
Roy believes in giving back to his community and has volunteered in the Jaycees organization, coached volleyball for middle school through varsity levels for thirty seasons, middle school basketball (boy’s and girl’s) and sponsored student council, Lion’s Quest and Link Crew. He also enjoys pickleball, golf, Bunco and billiards. We look forward to utilizing his skills in the tasks we will perform in representing the community in our transition process.
In order to accommodate the last event at the clubhouse, the maintenance will now begin on September 24. Mail will still be delivered and the dumpsters will be available. However, the roll-off dumpsters will be removed at some point. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we try to coordinate with the weather and the material supplier.
