2021 Annual Meeting Questions
Questions/Comments from the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Members
Question 1: Why was a “No Hiking” sign installed just south of Ray Road along Mountain Parkway?
Answer: Per Jim Welch, signs have always been posted up and down that subject area, however are often knocked down or removed by hikers. The one you are referring to had been there but went missing, and another was re-installed. The Hillside Committee, years ago, decided what areas were o.k. for hiking, and what areas were designated no hiking trails/hills.
Question 2: A 35-year MPRHOA member asked who was responsible for maintaining the street medians throughout Mountain Park Ranch? Can MPR maintain them? Can the lost Saguaros be replaced?
Answer: The City of Phoenix is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of all street medians. Jim Welch said he will look into the maintenance of these; however, it is difficult for MPRHOA to do any plantings, etc., because of a lack of irrigation and other reasons, like liability being on City property and doing their maintenance. Scott Murray of ProQual Landscaping explained difficulties of getting Saguaros due to recent shortages in supplies, and many of the saguaros that died was due to the extreme heat in 2020 causing disease.
Question 3: What is our policy on street parking. It is a real problem on his street.
Answer: Jim Welch indicated there are few restrictions on parking in the street, however, we can send a letter to the area discouraging it.
Question 4: Can we use the bulletin board for signs at the pools instead of the signs were are using?
Answer: Jim Welch indicated that the bulletin board has limited visibility and signs are needed at entranceway locations that are more visible.
Question 5: Why is the financial statement from March of 2020? Can we move the meeting so it is closer to when these come out?
Answer: Attorney Chandler Travis, indicated that the documents dictate when the meeting is to take place, not to mention financial statement can be found on the website and at the HOA office, so you don’t have to wait until an annual meeting to review them.
