LMPOA March Update

Dear Members
Our March meeting was cut short due to a medical emergency, so the board only got as far as accepting the February minutes which are posted on the website.

During February we mailed two official letters of recommendation for the ongoing trails and grant efforts of the Beaver Creek Trails Coalition which we co-founded and support.  Those are posted on the website.

Currently we have arranged for a clean up collection of items on Friday, 3/18 of items for the dump.  If you have items and do not have a vehicle suitable to transport them in or cannot lift them, please call 301-2749, ASAP.  We have room to pick up some more stuff.  Two Yavapai County Probationer work vehicles and our own Rollins Park maintainer are doing the job.
The Camp Verde Refuse Transfer Station continues to be open for FREE dumping Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through April 2 from 8 AM to 4 PM.  Please don’t miss out.
Also a one time benefit is being provided for unincorporated area residents by Yavapai County and Sedona Recycles.  A FREE ELECTRONIC RECYCLING is scheduled this Saturday at Red Rock High School in Sedona from 8 AM to Noon only.  We will have a pick up truck or two sitting on the lot near Beaver Creek Self Storage from about 7:30 AM to 10 ish or until filled.  Otherwise it’s a nice Saturday drive.
Hope to see you doing some recycling,
Your LMPOA Board

Another day in the Park

The Saturday scene at Rawlins Park included a view of the Camp Verde and Montezuma Rimrock Fire Department crews lending a hand — and a very long ladder — to put up a new solar light atop the flagpole.  The new fixture will provide just enough light to spotlight our flag, without distracting from the wonderful night sky display of stars.  Lots of gasps, and  “OOH”s and “AAH”s were heard from the gathered spectators, including dog-walkers, their dogs, and pedestrians. The crowd all politely gathered around to put a little more urgency into the delicate operation.  The ladder was lowered just close enough for firefighters to reach the top and carefully install the new fixture, without coming close enough to bounce off the flagpole in the chilly, windy weather.

 

A big thank-you to the Fire Departments and also to Board Member Ron Melcher, who purchased and tested the new light fixture over the last few weeks, and then persuaded the firemen to lend their support.  

 

The light was working beautifully last night, upon our inspection after dark.  See the picture below.  That’s the moon in the upper right corner, and the solar light visible through the trees, along with the current park lighting a bit lower.

Website Changes

LMPOAsmallLogo

We’ve updated the look of this website a bit to make it easier to find the documentation of LMPOA Board business, from Minutes and Agendas to Financial Statements and Letters.  The Letters category will include correspondence to and from the Board on zoning recommendations, statements of support for various organizations and projects, and other official business of the Board.  These are found in various other categories on the website, the Beaver Creek eNews, posted on the Kiosks, and posted elsewhere around the neighborhood.  We’ll try to keep them all here in one place so that you can find them easily.

You’ll see the link on the Top Menu — Board Minutes, Financials, and Letters, or click here to go to the new category.
