Stagecoach holds annual meeting

— New development tops the agenda for the Stagecoach Property Owners Association’s annual meeting Saturday.

Because so much new development is happening in the area, this year’s meeting will focus on the dissemination of information rather than traditional housekeeping matters, Stagecoach Property Owners Association President Bea Westwater said.

The Stagecoach Architectural Control Committee approved 23 new building plans for the community between July 2003 and April 2004. The committee approved 72 building plans cumulatively during the preceding four years

Developers from Bushy Creek Ranch, Sun Cove Development, The Neighborhood at Young’s Peak and Meadowgreen are scheduled to make presentations regarding the progress of their developments.

Additional speakers will address critical infrastructure issues such as roads, parks, a planned firehouse, the Morrison Creek Water and Sanitation District, Internet service, mail delivery and fire-mitigation measures.

The information to be presented is important for the property owners who might only visit Stagecoach once a year, Westwater said.

As Stagecoach has started to grow, property association board members have said the Stagecoach covenants, which were adopted 30 years ago, need to be updated. Any changes must be approved by 75 percent of Stagecoach property owners, Westwater said.

An informal straw-poll vote will be taken Saturday to discern the property owners’ level of interest in changing covenants. If enough people seem interested, the board will proceed with the time-consuming process of researching and adopting new covenants, Westwater said.

Property owners will elect three new members for the nine-member board of directors. The three-year terms for Treasurer Ken Burgess, as well as David George and Michael Schick, expire this year.

Burgess is running for re-election. Other candidates are Tony Borean, Chris O’Konski and Gerald “Jerry” Anderson. Additional nominations will be taken Saturday, and all candidates will have two minutes to address the property owners before the vote.

Property owners also will be voting on whether or not to make a contribution toward $382,750 in ice rink improvements in Oak Creek.

Oak Creek is converting its open-air ice rink into the Four Seasons Skate Park with a steel roof to extend the winter ice skating season and modular skateboard equipment that can be installed during the rest of the year to transform the ice rink into a year-round skate park.

The Stagecoach Property Owners Association starts its annual meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday at Soroco High School in Oak Creek. A barbecue lunch revives the traditional association picnic at 12:15, with additional committee reports and election results to follow.
