A quick and violent storm shook Lake Montezuma and Rimrock Sunday 8/23/2015, leaving uprooted trees, branches, and downed power lines behind it.  Our emergency preparedness was tested, with winners and losers.  See this writeup about emergency notifications in the Beaver Creek eNews.  Nice job and a huge thank you to everybody who worked late and early to get the lights back on while we stayed safe.

LMPOA Board Meeting October 5, 2015

No Comments

The regular monthly meeting of the LMPOA Board was held Monday, October 5, 2015 at 5:00 at the Beaver Creek Adult Center.   Due to vacations and other reasons, only three Board Members were present, so a quorum was not met.

However, a nice crowd of well-informed and vocal residents were on hand to talk about pending issues and hear a succinct presentation from Supervisor Tom Thurman and County Director of Development Services Steve Mauk regarding the Pros and Cons of incorporating for a small community.  Lots of intelligent questions and answers later, revealed the crowd not in favor of pushing forward toward incorporation. The Board will hear more comments at the next meeting, and consider setting up a task force for further study if community members want to pursue the issue. Last meeting, a gentleman came to the meeting with a research packet and recommended this as a pretty good way to enable the community to get some muscle behind applications for grants or other funding, as well as to enforce local zoning or other ordinances, elect and pay a Mayor, and open up the ability to assess taxes toward possible viability for the Golf Course and Ranch House.

Our proximity to national monuments Montezuma Well and Montezuma Castle was noted at our last meeting as a factor that might allow us to keep the size of an incorporated area or special tax district quite small; however, Thurman pointed out that normally the County will approve only when 50 percent of the residents plus 1 are in favor of forming such an entity. The trick would be to make the boundaries small: surrounding area to the Golf Course, for example. Unfortunately, that would also exclude most businesses which could provide tax revenue.

Mauk recommended consulting the Arizona League of Cities and Towns as THE resource for information on incorporating and special districts. Both Mauk and Thurman emphasized that the budget for forming a small town corporation can be sizable!  County services such as police, building inspections, and road maintenance become no longer available from the County without special requests and costs to the incorporated community.

The controversial proposed National Monument in Sedona was also discussed. Both the topic of forming a task force on incorporation and issuing a letter of support or non-support for the Sedona National Monument were tabled for next meeting, and will have much more discussion. The Sedona decision is completely up to Barack Obama, but our letter of support and others from the Sedona area will surely sway that outcome.

Thank you to resident “Mr. Park” Bill Merkley, who attended and was pressed into duty to help with bids for much-needed work on the trees in Rollins Park.

A letter of support for use permits for the new Montezuma Family Dental has been sent and a letter of support for a parking and supplies location for a U-Haul was considered but will be voted on by the Board with quorum at the next meeting.

Plans for the Halloween Spooktacular were discussed, and individuals encouraged to SIGN UP EARLY for being part of the trunk-or-treat treat provider group.  Sign up by contacting Janet Aniol or Grace Lahr TODAY so that all treat providers can be properly vetted prior to October 31st.  Showing up late with goodies is not an option  for obvious safety reasons concerning our kids!

A special meeting was tentatively scheduled for October 19th at 5:00 PM to make the necessary approvals with quorum, and then the next regular meeting will be the first Monday in November with YCSO guest Anthony Palermo who will provide neighborhood block watch information.  Stay tuned here for the official minutes, but if you want to hear some really interesting stuff and speak your mind about community issues, you gotta come out to the meeting!

Beaver Creek 4th of July

1 Comment
A great time was had by all at the  July 4th Beaver Creek Parade. The parade left the Sycamore Park area in Lake Montezuma at 9:00 AM and traveled south on Montezuma Avenue past the Village Square. Grand Marshals Pastor Ken and Leeza Miller presided over a fun family ceebration of Independence Day. Parade entrants (walkers, animals, vehicles, floats) put on a great show. The festivities and pancake breakfast was in Rollins Park at the Lake Montezuma Village Square. The BC Kiwanis Duck Race on Wet Beaver Creek featured a flotilla of feisty rubber ducks who paddled madly for the finish line. Congratulations to Carol Keeton, Kiwanis Event Coordinator, and all who helped make this a great event.
