Several comments. A number of people have commented on the removal of center median plants extending from Atchley and then south past Merrimack Valley on Anthem Parkway. The removal of the center median plants were done by an order from the City of Henderson to improve line of sight for those trying to turn off or on Anthem Parkway from Red Valley and Merrimack Valley. For the few areas that SCA was notified about, the work was quickly done. It has taken Anthem Community Council far longer to do the work and while they have removed a great deal of plant material, it is unclear what they intend to put in its place. Anything in the center median cannot be more than a maximum of 24 inches in height.
The second comment pertains to the continuation of the Clarkson Law Group as the SCA general counsel. While Clarkson did appear as #3 in the Board Book the number does not imply any ranking. The listing of the law firms that were interviewed were done randomly. The three groups interviewed were seen as being equal with some different strengths and weaknesses. The Board interviewed each firm twice and took almost three months of gathering information and discussing the pros and cons of each.
Several other points.
Legal opinions, advice and other work are not accepted without any discussion. There is a great deal of discussion and often we will ask that what has been provided be changed. Further the board is meeting monthly in person with the general counsel to better communicate.
Speaking only for myself, I make decisions based upon what I believe will create value for the Association and to minimize legal liability for the Association. I love living in this community and want to focus on where we need to be going today and in the future. I value talking and listening to all points of view from residents. Sometimes I will agree and sometimes not but I will always listen to what people have to say.
