A President’s Farewell Letter As I sit down to write this final President’s Letter (at least from me) for the Resource Guide, it is with more than a little bit of sadness. Not because I love writing these letters, but because I know it means my time on the Anthem Community Council Board is coming to an end. I have truly enjoyed my three years on the Board. When I originally decided to run for the Board it was because I wanted to become involved and wanted to see some changes made to the Board. Specifically, I wanted our Board to be more open and transparent, and to focus on not serving any individual interests, but to do what was in the best interest of Anthem as a whole. While you may not agree with everything the Board has done in the last three years (I’m pretty sure I do not), I hope you would agree that great progress has been made. Meetings are much more open, more public input is sought, and single issue special interests have been reduced. I do not take credit for these accomplishments. The process was guided by the expert staff of the Anthem Community Council. While not everyone in Anthem gets the pleasure of working with these great people, we are all very lucky to have them serving on behalf of our community. They are truly special people who want to do what is best for the community. To Jenna, Neal, Doug, and all the ACC staff, thanks for all you do. I also want to thank all of the Board members with whom I have served during the last three years. It has been an honor to work with you all. A special thank you to Jeff Pointer who ran for Country Club at the same time I did with very similar platforms. Thanks for keeping me consistent with our platform in our actions on the Board.

Preserving, Protecting, and Enhancing a Genuine Sense of Community The Anthem Community Council (ACC) serves as a unifying entity for the overall Anthem community. Our mission is to establish and maintain a governing structure that will preserve, protect, and enhance the plans, policies, infrastructure, and resources needed to support a genuine sense of community, ensure sound economic development, and promote quality of life for all Anthem residents.

Coleman Field Dedication Hits One Out of the Park! On Sunday, March 3, Anthem residents and the business community gathered at the ACC Community Park to honor the life and service of the late Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Deputy William “Bill” Coleman. The special dedication ceremony included the naming of ACC Community Park’s Little League Field #1 (LL1) as “Coleman Field.” As a result, a dedication plaque, scoreboard sign, and new flag pole were presented to commemorate his heroism and service as a first responder. Guests included Coleman family members, MCSO, North Valley Posse, Daisy Mountain Fire District, ACC and HOA Board members, first responder groups, veterans groups, service clubs, and local Little League players. In January, the ACC Board of Directors proclaimed March 2-10, 2013 to be “Anthem First Responders Appreciation Days,” providing opportunity for the community to recognize, honor, and support First Responders who serve or live in Anthem.

Investing in Anthem: Civic Building and Master Plan Update We are moving swiftly on the civic building development. The remodeled building, which will serve as a community gathering place once complete, is located at 3701 W. Anthem Way, and is currently home to the Anthem Community Council (ACC) and Homeowner Association (HOA) administrative offices Design (by Holly Street Studio) and construction estimates have been finalized, and are to be presented at the ACC Board of Directors April 4 meeting. Once the Board approves the design, Brignall Construction will develop a “guaranteed maximum price” (GMP), based on competitive bidding, for the various parts of the project. Once the GMP is approved by the Board, renovations begin. Construction will take four to six months after permits are issued by Maricopa County, just in time for a grand opening in early 2014. At this grand opening, the public will be invited to tour new meeting rooms, classrooms, administrative space, an arts and crafts room, lobby and welcome center, business conference area, café, and quiet fitness rooms. When construction begins in late spring/early summer, office hours for the public will be modified in order to expedite construction, which will, in turn, save money. We will continue to be open early morning and early evening hours, in addition to during the day, in order to best serve the public. Adjusted hours will be announced when changed. For up-to-date information on this project, as well as the master plan projects under consideration (Opportunity Way Park, Liberty Bell Park improvements, amphitheater/civic area upgrades, dog park, and Community Center expansion for multi-use courts): www.OnlineAtAnthem.com.

Unauthorized Gate Access Policy and Penalties In February, the ACCCA Board of Directors adopted a new Gate Entry and Exit Policy to ensure that individuals who violate gate entry access rules are identified, fined, and subject to claims for damages. Vehicles that attempt to enter side-by-side, parallel to another vehicle; enter through an exit gate or damage property in the attempt to enter will be identified and the owners subject to a $150 fine for the first violation and $500 for a subsequent violation. In addition, owners will be required to pay for any damage to equipment or landscaping incurred as a result of the attempted entry, and a transponder associated with the vehicle may be deactivated. For more information: www. onlineatanthem.com/country-club.

Vendor Transponders Traffic at the manned gates continues to be busy. In addition to using QuickPass®, you can help move traffic along by encouraging the vendors who come to your home on a regular basis to purchase a transponder. This will enable them to have access to the community through all four gates and help relieve some of the long waits at the manned entries during key periods of the day. The application fee is $25, renewable annually, and $25 for each transponder purchased. Applications are available at the community office, or you can print one from the Transponder/QuickPass® tab: www.OnlineAtAnthem.com/country-club.
