Water Tank Update

Image result for dripping water imagesThe water tank is not leaking. The backflow device is leaking and the City of Show Low sent someone to shut it off. HOAMCO is working to locate someone to repair it. The level in the tank is currently at fourteen feet. This should be sufficient until someone can repair the backflow device.

Unit 2 Fire Pits

Image result for firepits cartoon imagesMany lots in Unit 2 were sold with fire pits. It is the responsibility of individual lot owners to verify fire conditions or burning guidelines. This information can be obtained by contacting Show Low Dispatch Center, Timber Mesa Fire and Medical, or Northeastern Arizona Public Information System.

Fire conditions and burning guidelines change daily. Checking on the day you wish to use your fire pit is the only way to know for certain that a fire is okay.

Your cooperation is paramount to the safety of the Village from an errant fire. Call 911 if you know of any residents who are violating fire restrictions or warnings.

Lot Sales – How You Can Help

Aluminum Wood Welcome Letter BlockThe developer is working diligently to get the remaining twenty-one lots sold. Some have been selected for park models as a way to enhance marketability. Other lots are being purchased by people who want to be very involved in selecting just what they want on the property.

As a reminder, Unit 3 Phase I was developed to have two adjacent lots share a carport (please refer to the blog of July 19, 2018). Perhaps you would like to purchase two of these lots and develop them. The park models could be used as rentals, sold as a money-making investment or a combination of both.

If you are interested, please contact Bridget Wood at the sales office. Her number is 928-367-1717 and she has the scoop on two lots and a shared carport.

That is one way to help. Additionally, please remember that current owners are the best ambassadors for the Village. A friendly hello and a willingness to answers questions when you’re out and about will go a long way toward making potential owners feel welcome.

Recently, a couple had three lots in escrow. They had an appointment to meet someone at the lots to discuss and plan how to place their unit. A neighbor came out of his home and instead of greeting them and introducing himself, he told them they would have to find somewhere else to park. They were not blocking anyone’s driveway. They were not going to be there for the day. This story does not have a happy ending. The buyers promptly moved their vehicle to the sales office and canceled the escrow. Think about that. There are currently twenty-one lots left to sell. Those three would have reduced that amount to eighteen with most of the summer left to sell additional lots.

It would be helpful to remember that you don’t need to police potential buyers. Assuming we all have the same goal of getting the developer out of the business of selling lots and owners in the business of running the Association, cooperation is critical. Your help is greatly appreciated by both current owners and the developer.

Two Lots and a Shared Carport

For years Jim had a vision to do something to bring people to the White Mountains to vacation.  He felt that this would benefit the economy without destroying the allure that brought him here.  In the 1970’s he acquired a large parcel of land south of Show Low.  His plan was to develop it as a family vacation destination.

Canine Canons

Image result for barking dog cartoon imagesPeople have dogs for many reasons; companionship, protection, exercise, stress reduction.  It goes without saying that a pet comes with lots of responsibilities and one person’s pleasure can be another person’s pain. The Village is a high-density community and one barking dog can start a chain reaction that quickly gets out of control. In addition, dogs wandering off-lease onto private property can be annoyance even to people who have pets themselves.
