President’s Message (Aug 2016/Sept 2016)

Stop Signs: Recently residents have observed drivers making rolling or California stops; or, as Director Charlotte Schoenmann corrected me, “Hollywood” stops at stop signs on the northern section of Tanoan Drive. Many of our new community residents are younger families with small children. Please be especially careful and cautious at all times and come to a complete stop when encountering all stop signs in Tanoan. You may also notice Community Patrol stationed in the vicinity of these stop signs.

Zia 2: Our last good rain storm in early June revealed some weaknesses in our reconstruction on the north side of Zia 2. This occurred only in the areas where the rock was replaced without the basketing of rocks or “riprap.” The riprap areas performed as anticipated, holding off any erosion. The BOD authorized another $1600 for Leeco to fill in approximately 50 to 70 feet of washed-out areas with riprap and larger cobble stones. Engaging Leeco has been very cost effective, as an engineering study alone for this project would have cost approximately $30K+.

Golf Course Water Issues: The BOD continues to monitor the ongoing issue of the Country Club’s reduction of watering on the golf course; Doug Wayne, Club GM, advised that desert style landscaping behind Zia #3 and Zia #4 will begin the week of July 17th. Poster sized renderings will be available in the Clubhouse Lobby for viewing.

HOA Stickers: The replacement of Tanoan vehicle stickers is well into its second year; however, there are still a few residents who have not gotten new stickers for their vehicles. Therefore, the BOD approved a resolution for a $25 fine for residents without up-to-date stickers. Please stop by the Community Relations office if a new sticker is needed.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at our BOD meetings.

Best Regards,
Paul Dembnicki, President
