August Greetings, Good Neighbors,

Today, Monday at 3 PM is the association August meeting.  These meetings are held the second Monday of each month at the Beaver Creek Adult Center.  The minutes from the last meeting are accepted and generally posted to www.BeaverCreekAZ.US the following day.  (The draft minutes and agenda are attached below.)  Most folks are not too excited about attending meetings which we very much understand.  But the Board members do like to get input from you and would be delighted to get comments, information, etc. from you at contact@BeaverCreekAZ.US.   

At the September 10 meeting, Yavapai County Sheriff Mascher will be out guest.  Topics that he will be asked about include vandalism, dumping and speeding.  He will take questions.  The October meeting is scheduled for Monday, 10/8, and the November meeting is scheduled for Monday, 11/12. 

Dumping has been a hot topic the past few weeks.  The association has been involved with the cleanup of the recycling area via working with Pastor Ken Miller since the Beaver Creek Baptist Church owns and donates use of the land for this service.  Thank you to the community volunteers who have been cleaning up that location.  It is the responsibility of BCCA to provide another sign at that location.  At our request Yavapai County has addressed the trash dumping problem at the Sycamore Park parking lot.  The dumpster has been removed and signs are in the process of being installed.  Dumping is an increasing problem in the Beaver Creek area which could use some solutions.

Since 2005 BCCA has interacted with Yavapai County and state transportation agencies.  We will have an updated report at the meeting this afternoon which we will share.  Currently YC Public Works has issued a press release concerning our area chip sealing for fiscal year 18/19.  The release and a map of the affected streets are below. 

The $4000 loan we made to the Beaver Creek Trails Coalition to help that organization execute their reimbursement grant to create the Wickiup Mesa Trails which include the Sunset Loop has been repaid.  Please give yourselves a pat on the back for helping to make 6.2 miles of trails in the forest adjacent to us a reality.

Those are some of the highlights of the past month.  The Outreach, Community Cleanup, and 50 th  Anniversary Committees are working on projects and could use some help.  Volunteers will be welcomed.  Some interest has been shown in gathering information about forming a special district to manage the golf course properties for community recreation and open space.  BCCA is checking to see if interest means willingness to commit to a lot of work. 
See you in the neighborhood,

BCCA Board: Janet Aniol, Sharon Olsen, Bob Burke, Danice Bruno, Ron Melcher, Mike Nelson, Phil Edwards

Monthly Board Meeting
July 9, 2018
BCCA President Janet Aniol called the July 9, 2018 meeting of the Beaver Creek Community Association to order at 3 p.m. Other board members present were Phil Edwards, Sharon Olsen, Bob Burke, and Ron Melcher.  Board members absent excused:  Mike Nelson and Danice Bruno.   Webmaster Chris Nicol also attended. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Phil Edwards.
President Aniol made several announcements and updates.  The minutes from the June meeting were read and approved, and notes from the July 6,2018 Study Session were reviewed by secretary Bob Burke, and accepted with a few revisions.  A copy of the Study Session notes is attached.
Financial Report:  Treasurer Danice Bruno has prepared an Excel spreadsheet of current financial status, and Janet will forward it to the Board members.  Janet stated that the bank balance as of 6/29 is $2995.00, to which we will add cash received for memberships and donations at the July 4th event, and about $220 in deposits.  Janet has talked with the BC Trails Coalition regarding their outstanding loan, and understands that they are awaiting reimbursement from the Forest Service in order to repay BCCA. Ron Melcher asked that monthly transaction information and bank balance be emailed to the Board. Bob Burke requested online access to the bank account statements. Janet will follow up with Danice Bruno, who has been unable to attend recent meetings due to a change in her working hours.
Old Business
Janet expressed thanks to all who worked on July 4th, Sharon Olsen, Bob Burke, Mike Nelson, and Chris Nicol.  A special big thank-you to Ron Melcher, who was indefatigable in replacing lights, making sure yellow safety tape was on utility stub posts, and who made and installed the new BCCA sign at the front of the park. Ron is also working with Jim and Ray on park issues, and has purchased six sprinkler heads to replace worn equipment. Board members agreed to spend about $20 each for the new sprinkler heads, and add six more.  A special thanks also to Mike Nelson, who has continued with his habanero pepper anti-gopher campaign.
Rollins Park was used by the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Auxiliary on June 16th for a fundraising event, and will be used by Grace Community Lutheran Church in September.
New Business
Bob Burke reported on the Outreach Committee work. We will participate in the August 2nd Back to School BBQ at Beaver Creek School.  Bob will call the school to arrange a table. Bob will order a large banner for use at this and future events. Ron moved and it was unanimously approved for Bob to spend up to $300 for the banner.                                                                                                                       
Bob reported that he has received a membership request from local resident and musician/vocalist/guitarist B. Marie Jarreau, whom he will contact regarding both membership and entertainment for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Janet noted that we need to get speakers for monthly meetings throughout the year, to encourage attendance and bring useful information to residents.  She suggested that we contact the Sheriff's office
to visit, and will check to see who might be available to speak at a meeting.  It was also suggested that we will invite Rebecca Borowski again for a ride around the community to view possible land use violations and ongoing problems.
Bob suggested that we sponsor a meet and greet for county candidates in this fall's elections.
Janet reported that there are some transportation improvements "in progress" but nothing new at this time, including the paving of Bice Road and  improvement of southbound I-17 exit at the McGuireville interchange.  Also, we need to review the (lack of) bowhunting regulations in our community and to contact  Arizona Game & Fish Department prior to fall seasonal hunting seasons. 
The meeting was adjourned at 4:30 pm. The next monthly meeting will be on Monday, August 13, 2018 at 3pm in the Beaver Creek Adult Center.
Beaver Creek Community Association seeks individuals interested in serving as BCCA Board members, assistants and community volunteers. If interested, please contact any BCCA Board member or attend one of our meetings.
