Corporation meeting was adjourned at
Ciasca thanked Janice Wight and Alex Chrys for their gracious hospitality and
use of their home for the meeting and potluck.
also thanked Tom Gilgum and Carol Johnson for supplying insect repellent to the
guards every summer.
Garrity stated that Rene is doing a really good job of keeping the roads graded
and watering at night. Jack also thanked Al Ciasca, Jack Hall and Phil Canale
for helping him oversee the road maintenance during the summer months.
Hall stated that the electric is status quo. She explained that meters will
have to be purchased as the demand requires and, as of now, we are using meters
that we purchased in a group of 85. After the purchased meters are placed
on the lots of paid utility fee members, new meters will need to be purchased
after negotiating the new demand fee. The reason that meters are not put
on empty lots is that they deteriorate and are vulnerable to damage, etc. Once
a meter is on your property you are responsible for its maintenance.
Ciasca said that, just like the pedestals, street signs and electric boxes are
vulnerable to damage from cars. Several signs have been knocked down and
electric boxes damaged. He also reminded people that when building new or
remodeling to keep in mind that the use of high voltage appliances is not
acceptable. The more demand equals more money spent for all.
stated the guards are doing an excellent job, of, not only the guard services
but with maintenance throughout the property.
pick up on Monday and Fridays and Wednesdays, as needed, is working out very

Sexson said that a room addition is nearly completed at the Holders. A set
of plans has been approved at Mz 21 Lot 22 for a new build, plans on Mz 21
lot 11 are in the preliminary stages. New garages at Mz 12 lot 39 and Mz 34 Lot
7 are near completion. A new build at Mz 43 Lot 11 is almost done
and a second floor addition at Mz 9 Lot 11 is complete.
Johnson asked who is responsible for daily cleanup around construction sites and
if contractors are allowed to park their work vehicles overnight in the
subdivision. Al answered that, no, construction vehicles are
not allowed to park overnight and that the homeowner is responsible to keep his
contractors in line about keeping their job sites clean. This is something he is
stressing that the architectural committee convey to these homeowners and
construction people. Also, the HOA requires a $1000 deposit from the
homeowner at the start of construction. This is an incentive to keep the area
clean and to comply with the rules of construction in order to get their refund.
Hall explained that the issue is basically status quo. Last winter, after
several visits with the Mayors office and the Puerto Penasco legal department,
it was decreed that, yes, the road in an out of Estero Morua is public and
we have the right to enter and park there. However, this has not been
implemented. It is planned to have another visit with the mayors office this
winter and ask that this be enforced.
Hall reported that we are very close to acquiring the final paperwork.
PENCA has paid for the appraisal, the subdivision, the no mortgage
certification and the taxes. Originally it was understood that we would be
paying taxes on half the Manzana but instead we were required to pay taxes
on the entire Manzana with a 40% discount. This amounted to $8394 for the back
taxes. All that is left to pay is the Notario and the transfer tax fees
and we will receive a clear title on the property. The title will be under PENCA
MEXICAN CORPORATION. Also, part of the negotiation is that Liz Perry will
receive electrical power to her home in Playa Encanto. Marilyn explained that
once the property is the HOA’s we will ask Gary Padgett to draw up
another master plan to present to the members at the next meeting. Your
ideas and input will be greatly appreciated. This will be a facility for all
members to enjoy.
asked about the Perry – Popovich lawsuit Marilyn explained that it
is as it has always been, that if you have NOT been notified and are
NOT on the list your property is not involved.
old sticker program has been resurrected. Each paid member will receive two
stickers which will allow them in and out privileges without being stopped and
questioned. If there are multiple owners in one unit each couple will receive
stickers as well. Visitors and renters will still have to stop at the guard
shack and answer questions as to where they're going, whom they are visiting,
and, if renters, they will be asked to supply information about who they are
renting from and how they went about renting the property. Most complaints from
members have been about uncontrolled renters. This will be effective in
determining which rental properties (and who owns them) that are non-compliant.
and recreational vehicle stickers will be given out to paid members only. The
stickers are numbered and documented. To bring in an ATV or any recreational
vehicle, it will be required that you have one of the stickers. This is backed
up by article 18 in the CC’s and R’s.
head guard, Tony, explained that Zofemat asked Playa Encanto to join a
group of volunteers that clean the beaches in Puerto Penasco and Tony replied
that we keep our own beach clean here. Between the homeowners and the guards the
beaches are kept clean.
announced that we have nine turtle nests on the beach at this time. He
thought that one might be overdue but one is ready to hatch. The biologist from
