The quarterly dues for the homeowners that are not subject to special pricing, were $331.00 per quarter, increasing by 25% to $441.00 per quarter in 2023. No one I know whether working or retired has had an income increase by 25%. I am sure there are always necessary items to attend to in order to maintain the community but the parking lot at Anthem Center does not seem to need repaving. I drove that lot – seems fine to me, other than the worn out “STOP” painted at the end of each row. Those should be replaced with permanent metal signs as we have on place when leaving the lot onto the main ingress/egress road. Those would not need to be replaced nearly as often as the repainting needs to take place. If only the streets within Henderson were in half as good condition as the Anthem Parking lot. Whether traveling on Eastern or Carnegie or even within SCA – the roads are not great and awful in places. Why does Anthem Parking lot need to surpass the city streets in their condition? This is an expense that it would seem could be delayed for a couple of years. The Boards’s attitude of “spend now before the prices increase” on certain projects reminds me of the comedian who said his wife always tells him how much money she saved buying items on sale – but it would save even more money if she did not shop at all !!!
