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.

Anthem General Board Elections Information: Call for Candidacy Election season is upon us and that means seats on various Boards need to be filled. Boards of Directors within the Anthem community consist of: • Anthem Community Council (ACC) • Anthem Country Club Community Association (ACCCA) • Anthem Parkside Community Association (APCA) • Village at Anthem Condominium Council of Co-Owners • Anthem Golf & Country Club (ClubCorp) Board of Governors – open only to Country Club property owners Voting for all Anthem community Boards of Directors this year begins on February 25. “Call for Candidates” is scheduled to begin January 21. Homeowners interested in running for an open Board seat should contact their respective Homeowners Associations: Country Club, (Jody Cote, 623-742-4561, jcote@aamaz. com); Parkside, (Annette McCarthy, 623742-6004, amccarthy@aamaz.com); or the Village, (Jennifer Lundmark, 602-288-2687, jlundmark@aamaz.com). Below is a guide that outlines which seats each HOA will be seeking to fill in Spring 2013: • Residents living in Country Club can run for either the ACCCA Board (2 open seats), or the ACC Board (1 open seat). • Residents living in Parkside can run for either the APCA Board (4 open seats), or the ACC Board (1 open seat). • Residents living in the Village can run for the Village Board (5 open seats). The Village seat on the ACC Board is not open this year. More detailed information about each respective HOA election is outlined in the HOA section of this Resource Guide. Information about all the HOAs can be found at www.OnlineAtAnthem.com.

Anthem Civic Building Project Update Following an extensive evaluation process that involved proposals from 13 firms, interviews and reference checks, the ACC Board approved an agreement with Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) to provide construction management services for the Civic Building renovation project. RLB is a leader in the construction management industry and was awarded the job based on their qualifications, expertise and understanding of this important community project. In addition, a design-build RFQ was issued in November. Design-build interviews are being conducted this month, and the ACC will present a final recommendation to the Board at their January 23 Board meeting. The civic building is designed to be a community multi-purpose facility providing a welcome center; social, educational, and entertainment opportunities; as well as an MCSO sub-station; and additional office space for ACC and HOA staff.

Deputy Bill Coleman Field to be Designated At their November 2012 ACC Board of Directors meeting, the Board approved naming Anthem Community Park Little League Field #1 (LL1) as “Coleman Field”, in honor of the late MCSO Deputy William “Bill” Coleman, who was shot and killed on January 8, 2012, while responding to a burglary call in Anthem. A dedication ceremony is being planned for a date to be determined in March 2013, in conjunction with the Coleman family, and to allow time to order and install a special dedication plaque and scoreboard sign to commemorate this honor.

Join Anthem Neighborhood Watch

ANW Dog Parade February 9, 2013

A neighborhood watch is a special group of volunteers who work with local law enforcement agencies to help reduce crime and vandalism in a community. The Anthem Neighborhood Watch (ANW) works as an affiliate group, under the Anthem Community Council (ACC), and is charged with collaborating with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), the Phoenix Police Department, the North Valley Posse, and the Daisy Mountain Fire District, to help inform and educate Anthem residents on ways to prevent and reduce crime in the community.

Burglars dislike barking dogs. When a dog starts barking for unusual reasons, it can potentially help stop or prevent a burglary. On Saturday, Feb. 9, Anthem Neighborhood Watch (ANW) will celebrate all “watchdogs,” and their owners, at the ANW Dog Parade, at 11 a.m., in the ACC Community Park, 41703 N. Gavilan Peak Parkway. In conjunction with the Phoenix Animal Care Coalition (PACC911) Pet Adopt-AThon event, residents are encouraged to dress up and “parade” their dogs to compete in the best watch dog costume, best owner/dog lookalike, best trickster, and best criminal costume contests. Prizes will be awarded.

In order to keep crime down in the community, ANW encourages you to support local law enforcement by keeping an eye and ear out in your neighborhood. If you see or hear any suspicious activity in your neighborhood, report it to the appropriate phone number. • Emergency Police, Fire, Ambulance: 9-1-1 • Anthem West (west of I-17) Non-

emergency City of Phoenix Police:

602-262-6151, www.phoenix.gov/police/ policereport/index.html • Anthem East (east of I-17)

Non-emergency Maricopa County Sheriff Office: 602-876-1011, www.mcso.org

The more actively involved you are, the more collaborative your community becomes; and the more successful the ANW program can be at helping to reduce crime, vandalism, and graffiti in the Anthem community. To learn more about ANW volunteer opportunities: www.OnlineAtAnthem.com/anthemneighborhood-watch, or email AnthemWatch@ yahoo.com.

To register your family dog to participate in the parade contest, download the registration form at www.OnlineAtAnthem.com and submit to AnthemWatch@yahoo.com. Registration runs from Jan. 7 to Feb. 6, 2013. For more information about the Phoenix Animal Care Coalition: www.pacc911.org.

Crimes of Opportunity Every 15.4 seconds, a home is broken into in the U.S. Protect your home from criminal intrusion by: • keeping your garage closed when unattended. • keeping your vehicle doors locked and windows closed at all times. • never leaving valuables inside an unattended vehicle.
