Currier Way

John Currier

John Currier has been a resident of Seven Bar North since July 2000. He is also the longest serving volunteer for the HOA. John has held almost every role in the HOA since the developers turned the HOA over to the community during the winter of 2000. He served as a Board Member from 2005 through 2016, but his true passion is the landscaping. John established our Landscape and Maintenance Committee in 2001 and still serves as the team’s chair. He has also volunteered for the Compliance and Architectural Control teams.

In recognition of John’s dedication to the Seven Bar Community, the HOA is renaming our walking trails to ‘Currier Way’ and mounting signs signifying this where the trails cross La Sierrita and Seven Bar North. The timing seems appropriate since John and the Landscape Team (John and Dubra Karnes-Padilla) just finished managing the two-year project to refurbish all four sections of our trail system which look wonderful.

Westside Boulevard Update from Councilor Borrego

The City of Albuquerque and I, as your Councilor, broke ground on Westside Blvd.’s expansion on March 17, 2021.  Many of you requested information on Westside’ Blvd’s expansion effects on existing residential properties in the area.

Phase I—Construction, includes widening Westside Blvd. from two to four lanes between Golf Course Rd. and NM 528 and will also improve traffic flows at several major intersections. The project includes a multi-use trail on Westside Blvd.’s north side, a sidewalk on its south side and bike lanes in each direction (east and west).

Seven Bar North Spring Activity

Image


Bulbs and trees are blooming, weeds are popping up, and neighbors are out in their yards working on projects, all bringing a renewed spirit of life and hope. I love my daily (ok, most days) dog walks enabling me to see the hustle and bustle of our community, allowing me to gawk at beautiful changes made. It is apparent we take great pride in our homes. The neighborly waves from driveways remind me why I choose to live in 7 Bar North.

April 1st – no, not April Fools – but the beginning of verifying weed compliance throughout the community. Yes, it is that time of the year!

Not only do we see weeds popping up at our homes, but they are appearing throughout the common area landscaping, too. John Currier is working with Yellowstone to have our common areas weed free as we begin rolling out compliance procedures in our neighborhoods.

You may notice this is not HOA President, Scott Templeton, writing the Board Corner article this round. Do not worry, Scott is in excellent health. We’ve decided to share the responsibility of writing the newsletter article. I’m pleased that Scott and Stephen have entrusted me with this.

Nena Perkin, Joan Gillis, Candyce Jacobs, and Scott Templeton have made excellent progress in increasing our level of communication with HOA members. I hope everyone reads and views not only the newsletter, but also our community website, our Facebook group page, and our Next Door group. These are excellent resources for finding what is going on in our community. We are also using email to notify homeowners of issues of immediate importance, such as public meetings that directly affect our community. Please ensure Corder Management has your updated email address so you will receive these notices. We continue to send out postcards as needed but wouldn’t it be lovely to focus this spending on a new tree for the common area!

Landscape Maintenance

Image

A NEW Landscape Maintenance contract was put out for bid in February.  Previous contracts had the maintenance being done on a five-week rotation.  Five weeks proved to be too long between treatments.  Weeds were large and plentiful and shrubs grew out over the sidewalks.  The new contract calls for a three-week rotation during the growing season (March through October) and a five-week rotation during the non-growing season (November to February).  Based upon this summer’s results, three weeks provides ample time for the crew to address the weeds and shrubs and keep the HOA looking good.  With the weeds and shrubs not growing during the winter, the crew should be able to maintain the property on the five-week schedule with less cost to the HOA.
