This response is basically for Steve Anderson and the rest of the SCA board of directors:
I confirmed with the city of Henderson that they mandated the removal of plants/trees that were “blocking “line of sight.” What I don’t know is if the city actually sent someone to Anthem to check the “line of sight” from the center medians themselves.
The ground cover plants were NOT in excess of the 24 inches high, as “decreed” and the trees were not sufficiently mature as to block line of sight at all.. The ground cover plants were not dead or dying, as are the dandelion like plants that were planted at the corner of Wild Iris and Anthem Parkway… and YES, I have complained about those to every board since Jim Long held the president position. If you don’t believe me when I say the look of that area, and on down Anthem Parkway to Bicentennial is a total mess, take a drive and check it out Tumbleweeds and all.
I have to ask why, considering the amount of money SCA pays to Anthem Council and our own landscapers we seem to have little or NO oversight to the work they do. If this community were run more like a business perhaps a committee would be assigned that task.
I would also like to point out that a community like ours, especially in the price range our homes are reselling at, the upkeep of our common grounds would be more in the the forefront. I find it hard to take landscape compliance of our homes seriously when the same is not applied to the landscape companies taking our $$$$ in large amounts.
With regards to the Adam Clarkson comments, I only know of one other HOA attorney who seems to feel his hire as also a path to “board control”….. Maybe the idea of legal advice and manipulation have become somehow welded together. Personally, were I still on the board my vote would have gone to Michael Schulman.
