President's Message September/October 2016

We were really glad to have the Lego camp this year, at the newly remodeled community center. Quite a few Continental Ranch kids got to enjoy a fun and unique learning experience this summer. I hope we will see the camp back again next year with even more families participating.

It’s coming time again for the Annual Election and I hope we will see folks attending.  Since there are four open seats and four candidates running for those positions, the results are pretty much already decided but it is still very important for everyone to cast their votes. We need to have a certain number of votes received for the election to be valid so please take just a few moments to drop your ballots off at the office or mail them in. 

At the last meeting, the Board approved the annual budget which you will receive a copy of in your annual election packets this month. I was happy that we were still able to keep from raising dues.  This Board has been able to keep dues the same for eleven straight years. This is not an easy accomplishment, since the required contribution to our reserves (saving account) increases by quite a bit each and every year. Back in 2010 the annual amount required to be put into reserves was only $90k per year and has climbed each year to now being $187k in 2016.  Not only have we been able to keep from raising dues for over a decade, we are proud that Continental Ranch has some of if not the lowest dues in the entire Tucson area, while still offering nice amenities to its residents and making numerous improvements to the community during this time.

President's Message July/August 2016

It was really nice seeing over 20 CRCA residents taking advantage of the dog training classes that were offered at Windmill Park. Seeing that many home owners taking an interest in their pets was very satisfying. What was not at all acceptable was the 40+ pounds of dog poop that covered the baseball field before the classes started. Seeing how much dog poop there was I can only imagine what the little league baseball players had to put up with while practicing on the field. There seems to be a small group of people who must feel the rules do not apply to them- Windmill Park and the baseball field are not a dog park! Not only are there Pima County ordinances about unleashed dogs and not picking up the dogs poop- with substantial fines and possible jail time CRCA has in place a fine of $100 and a 30 day pool suspension for not having your dog on a leash and also a $100 fine and 30 day pool suspension for not picking up their poop. We will be strictly enforcing this as well as turning offenders over to Pima County. Be a good neighbor and obey the rules- they are there so everyone can enjoy our facilities. Windmill Park is NOT A DOG PARK!

Speaking of Windmill Park we will be fencing it off starting August 12th for two months to enable us to replace our irrigation system. We have experienced numerous leaks and issues with the current system which is over 25 years old and it is in serious need of replacement. We were going to replace it last spring but the contractor backed out at the last minute because we were going to have someone inspect the work daily to assure it was being done according to plan.

You will be noticing a new landscape maintenance contractor doing our community- it will be Complete Landscape- a local contractor in business since 1986. The performance of our last contractor in my opinion was not up to the standards we set as we experienced way too many dead and dying plants. Hopefully Complete will perform better for us.

Just a reminder that the lego camp starts July 11th for the kids. If you didn’t sign up contact the office before July 6th if you are interested.

Hopefully the monsoon will bring us some badly needed rain and cool us down a little.
