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!

Winter 2021 HOA News and Activity

Not sure about you, but I am glad we are leaving 2020 in the rear-view mirror. The pandemic will still be with us for a while in 2021, but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Moving forward into the New Year we are pleased to say that the final section of our walking trails (from Sierrita east to the arroyo) has been refurbished. This will complete our 2‑year effort to renovate all four sections of our walking trails. This has been a significant cost and effort for the HOA with the results being enjoyed by many in our community. The pandemic has prompted many residents to enjoy the trails and brisk fresh air for relaxation and exercise. Each afternoon, Wiley and I take a walk in the sunshine and smile at the many neighbors we see out and about. A huge thank you is due to John Currier who has led this effort for the HOA. Thanks John!

Our neighborhood annual meeting was a virtual event this year with our website hosting the 2020 Annual Update. If you haven’t had a chance to check this out, please take a peek. We voted on-line for the 2021 Budget and retention of Scott Templeton to the HOA Board. Unfortunately, we did not receive enough votes for the tally to be valid. The Board has approved both measures.

HOA 2021 Proposed Budget


The voting for the HOA 2021 Budget and Board are complete. Unfortunately we did not meet the minimum votes required for a quorum to validate the vote. Therefore the HOA will approve the budget for 2021 and the retention of Scott Templeton to the Board. The votes that were cast in both options were well over 75% in favor of the named results.

On the positive side we had over 250 Residents view out HOA 2020 Annual Update which is a nice result during our COVID restrictions. Please watch the HOA website in the future as we continue to communicate information through this medium and look for input from our Residents on neighborhood topics.

HOA News and Activity

The different rules from the City and State during the last 5-6 months have definitely affected life here on the Westside. One thing we have noted is that many more of our neighbors are taking advantage of the great Albuquerque weather and our walking trails within the neighborhood. It is nice to see more strollers, bikes, and walkers out and about and hear the laughter of children as they play. If you haven’t had a chance, please walk the newly refurbished trail between Seven Bar and Sierrita. It turned out quite nice and the word on the street as we go to print is that John Currier is asking for quotes for the section from Farola to Seven Bar.
