Q & A With David Twiggs National Trends Impacting HSV Future Development

M

More than 65 million Americans live in community associations. That's 24 percent or almost 1 in every 4 homes. Yet over the past five years, the priority of living in a golf course community association like Hot Springs Village has become lower according to research by Urban Land Institute, said David Twiggs, HSV Chief Operating Officer (COO). As a community development planner for the past 20 years, Twiggs has extensive knowledge of the evolution of the community association. On staff as COO since the summer of 2013, Twiggs has spent the past nine months applying his knowledge and experience in Hot Springs Village. In the Winter 2013 edition of the Advocate, Twiggs focused on the plan for keeping Hot Springs Village a relevant community for the current market. In this edition, Twiggs talks a little Property Owners’ Association Advocate Hot Springs Village Property Owners’ Association 895 DeSoto Blvd. Hot Springs Village, AR 71909 Telephone: (501) 922-5556 Email address: administration@hsvpoa.org Website: www.hsvpoa.org Managing Editor: Linda Mayhood Editor: Lisa Watson

more about what is happening in similar communities nationally and why it's important for Hot Springs Village to stay relevant in coming years. Let’s talk more about how HSV was developed and what has happened in the market to date. When planned communities like Hot Springs Village were developed, all that was needed to create value was an emphasis on golf and country club living. In the 1970s to early 2000s, banks were willing to finance these types of communities. It didn’t really matter where the communities were built. As long as the community had gates, nice homes and an emphasis on golf, then the lots could be sold. For Hot Springs Village specifically, the model Cooper created was a lotselling model, not a build-out model. With multiple golf courses stretched out over such a large area, Hot Springs Village offered diverse "buy-in" pricing which made some areas more prone to development. This means we had a wide variety of home prices but little building concentration in areas without amenities. Over time, some development migrated to other areas of values such as lakes and views. However, the amenities Hot Springs Village offered were

never diverse enough to level these development patterns across the entire 26,000 acres. In fact, efforts to maximize frontage sold on golf courses, lakes and views served to undervalue nearby properties by cutting off access to those amenities. In other words, there has been a lack of ultralocal value for building in Hot Springs Village. What I mean when I’m talking about ultralocal is this – what is it that makes the area around your home special? What is it that makes it special for you to live where you live? This could be proximity to a lake or golf course or other amenity. However, in many areas, there is no specific attraction. So, what has happened in the market in recent years and how does this affect Hot Springs Village? When many of the gated communities were built across the U.S., there was no emphasis given on quality of place. You could have a gated community located next to a freeway and people would live there. For a while, just the presence of gates and golf was enough to guarantee lots would be sold. Unfortunately, that’s not the case anymore. There’s been a shift among

Q & A With David Twiggs

TWIGGS continued from page 2 consumers to a lifestyle that’s more focused on doing, serving and learning. Conspicuous consumption is no longer seen as a value by today’s consumer or by banks interested in financing these types of communities. One area where Hot Springs Village does have an advantage over other communities is quality of place. We live in the middle of a national forest. If that’s not quality of place, I don’t know what is. In addition, today’s consumers are much more interested in moving to a place that’s authentic and offers opportunities for connection. So, what we want to do is maximize what we already have here in Hot Springs Village while increasing opportunities for authentic living and connection with others. So, what does this look like in 2014? To begin with, we want to develop amenities that require lower capital investment, offering natural (i.e. authentic) places for folks to gather. Here are some examples. We kicked off the Rock Porch Sessions back in

November. This free music event features local artists performing in a laid back atmosphere. So far, they’ve been great, with members and guests flocking to listen to the music and connect with others. And we are currently building Grove Park, which is set to open up in the late Spring. We are working with a farmer’s market that was already meeting in the area, to provide a permanent area for the vendors to sell their produce (see related article on pg. 18), as well as provide a place for craft markets and other music and entertainment events. The first membership event for the Ouachita Rod & Gun Club is set for April 26 and coincides with the Kayak Fishing Tournament on Lake Cortez (see related article on pg. 6). We are also starting a Chef series in July that will feature local chefs cooking with regional ingredients. These items are really just the start of many new and unique amenities that are coming to the Ouachita region this year and in the future. So, how do these and other upcoming amenities impact the na-

tional market? We have a unique opportunity here in Hot Springs Village to create a new type of community. In the longer term, we will have to make more investments in "bricks and mortar" amenities like a village center, an art village and creating better accessibility to trails and lakes. Many of the newer communities that are being built today already have these type of amenities built into the structure while the older communities are not necessarily moving toward these ideas of authentic living and connection. We want to add to what we already have here in Village, keeping the amenities we have in place like our great golf courses and outstanding fitness center. And by doing this, we can create a unique, authentic place where people will want to live. You know, there’s a natural tendency to avoid change. However, the world has already changed around us. The new economic reality has changed it. The new generations coming of age have changed it. Communities that ignore these changes are being seen as relics by these new generations – and are becoming increasingly obsolete and irrelevant. We can keep the things we love about our Village but we must expand to meet these changes. Here me say this – it’s not about losing anything, but about creating additional lifestyles that will both enhance our lives and create a more meaningful place to live. This is a time of great opportunity - to create more to love in our Village for ourselves and others. I’m excited about the future of Hot Springs Village and thankful to be part of what’s happening here. Spring 2014 Hot Springs Village Advocate 3

When will it ever warm up again, whether you are here in Hot Springs Village or across the United States ... enough is enough of winter. Kudos to our POA Staff for keeping us safe and the Village running well during all the winter storms. The cold wet weather continues to challenge us financially. Closing out 2013, the weather conditions did put us behind on golf revenues, and the cooler summer impacted our water revenues, but the POA Staff did an excellent job controlling other expenses, so that we were only about $400,000 below budget projections. Rolling over into 2014's cold weather, your POA Board continues to keep an eye on our financial health. Especially as our golf courses sit idle and our POA employees are spending extra hours keeping our community safe for property owners to get around in the snow and ice. If this "polar vortex" effect continues each year, the work of the Future Financial Task Force is even more vital to the long-term financial health of our community. Led by POA Board Vice President, John Cooney, the task force is diligently working to iden-

have had gross receipts of $10-18 thousand that fund many youth projects in our Rotary Club. I had a 30 year career working for H. Ross Perot’s Electronic Data Systems. I started with them in San Francisco CA, and then moved to Plano TX in 1977. Most of those years were in management positions. The largest responsibility was building data centers and procurement of all computer hardware and mechanical equipment to run them. I wrote Request for Proposal bids to vendors for large quantities of computer equipment and ancillary equipment. This led into vendor management that in-

cluded purchasing agreements, vendor performance and other related processes. Benefits were cost saving efficiencies, volume pricing when applicable with delivery and installation processes that met all requirements. My background would lend itself to offering some guidelines to the POA in these areas. During the past year, I have attended most of the POA board meetings to familiarize myself with our issues. I am encouraged with the hiring of our new general manager who has some fresh ideas on how to grow our Village. Our amenities and facilities need to be kept in top class condition so our residents and visitors feel they are getting value for the dollars they spend. I am fiscally conservative, yet I am committed to the growth of our Village. I will support fiscally responsible proposals that benefit all resident and non-resident property owners. I respectfully ask for your vote in the coming election. 

My wife Sharon and I have lived in the Village for 16 years, moving here from Plano, Texas. Before moving here full time, we owned a townhouse for several years in the Village. I was born and raised in Seattle WA. I served four years in the U.S. Air Force with two years in Japan and two in Florida. We are members of Village United Methodist church. I served on the church Finance Committee for three years.

Mary Neilson I am Mary Neilson. I have lived in Hot Springs Village almost 7 years and am actively involved in the Hot Springs Village community. I am currently serving on the Governmental Affairs Committee and I am seeking a position on the POA Board of Directors to serve my community. I believe in being involved and working for both the resident and the nonresident members. It is critical that people of different backgrounds and stages in life serve in leadership roles in order to strengthen our community and contribute to its growth and development. Hot Springs Village is a great place to live, a great place to retire, and a great place to enjoy every stage of life. I will promote the board’s role of establishing policies and supporting

I believe the best days of the Village lie ahead – but that’s up to us. I offer relevant leadership experience, critical thinking abilities, proven communication and people skills. That’s why I want to serve on the POA Board. Following my MDiv, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, I was Senior Pastor of two large parishes in Madison, Wisc. Following my MS and PhD, UW, I was Director of Research Centers at Washington State University and Boys Town, then Department Head at North Carolina State University, where I retired as William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor in 2000. At Boys Town, I had a lead role in creating the nation’s premiere center

the general manager and department heads in executing these policies and their management of day-to-day operations. I believe that the role of the board is to participate in the preparation and monitoring of the 5-year Strategic Plan to assure goals are being achieved and financial resources are available to support the efforts for its implementation. My goals are to make decisions that provide the best living environment for current members and make the Village a community that will attract new members well into the future. To accomplish this, the Village needs to be competitive with other communities across the country. This should be done by: 1) promoting fiscal responsibility, 2) pursuing attractive amenity offerings and 3) exploring creative land planning alternatives.

I am an Arkansas native. After living in Wisconsin, Washington, and California, my husband and I moved back home to Arkansas to raise our children. I am a member of the Village United Methodist Church, a founding member of the Jessieville School District Foundation and PEO. My husband Robert is the general manager of the Hot Springs Village Wal-Mart, and both of our children attend Jessieville schools. I am presently a sales manager for the Hot Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau and have coordinated the Hot Springs Sister City Program for the past five years. The Hot Springs Sister City Program was recently named the 2012 Best Overall Program by Sister Cities Internation-

for youth studies. At NC State, I restructured and refocused an old, large, deeply conflicted department that, by the end of my tenure as Head, raised its ranking more than comparison universities. Also, I was: • Board member and Secretary, Executive Committee, Lutheran Hospitals-Omaha. • Member, North Carolina Governor’s Trade Mission to Japan. • Member, National Institutes of Health Research Review Council-Washington. • Member, National Academies of Science Military Recruitment StudyWashington.

A letter to the non-resident members… Please read about my background in the POA article about candidates in this publication, but I’d like to specifically address this letter to the members that do not currently reside in Hot Springs Village. I understand you have unique concerns about owning a lot or home that you may not be able to watch over daily or visit frequently, and may want to sell but not give away. Our new CEO, David Twiggs, has innovative ideas for the future of the Village. I will support him as we explore ways to grow the Village by marketing and planning for future development. Maintaining our Village amenities and the security that led you to purchase a retirement or investment property is my priority. In addition, adding offerings to draw new residents will translate into increased property values and return on your investments. If you have any questions, please email me at maryeneilson@yahoo.com . I would appreciate your vote for HSV POA Board of Directors.

We have charged our General Manager with making the Village a more competitive relocation destination. Property values are a strong indicator of community desirability, which means that we all have a vested interest in his success. Together we move forward. • GM needs our support. Board members owe his emerging proposals our practical evaluations and constructive criticism. • The job of the Board is to grasp the big picture and set appropriate courses of action. Wherever possible, it must remove itself from POA daily operations, for which the GM and Ast GM have responsibility. • Concurrently, the Board must remain an accountable trustee of our finances, quality POA services, uncompromised public safety, and excellent amenities. • The Board must address delinquent assessments and backlogged maintenance. Both threaten our fiscal stability. • Provision must be made for property owner input and

members must be kept informed. • The Village Demographics project, which documents who we are and how we are changing, is emerging as a useful data-based planning tool. A complementary study of non-resident property owners should be done. • Going forward, we must monitor the needs of advanced-age Villagers, also the emerging interests of nonresident members who have yet to enjoy this special place we call home.

Money Matters

FY 2013 Year End Financials Report Highs, Lows FOR HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, 2013 provided funds and resources to make some major improvements to infrastructure as well as improvements and renovations to amenities. Several projects were started and funded during 2013 and will be completed in 2014 including the Water Treatment Plant Expansion, updates and reconstruction of the West gate fountain and entrance area, and the DeSoto Golf Course renovation (see related story on pg. 20). Other 2013 projects include the Coronado Fitness Center HVAC system totaling $528,000 replacing the geothermal system, approximately 30 miles of roads paved in 2013 at a cost of $1.4 million, and rolling stock for all departments totaling $1,035,962. Hot Springs Village concluded FY 2013 with a deficit of $-388,687. Though this figure is negative, there are several positives to consider. Preliminary estimates from as late as July 2013 indicated the deficit to be more than $800,000. Because of better than expected assessment revenues, and less than expected expenses, that deficit was reduced dramatically. 2013 Revenues totaled almost $27 million. Though this is less than what was budgeted for 2013, assessment revenues were better than forecast. 2013 Operating Expenses totaled $24.5 million. 2013 Capital Expenses totaled $6.5 million, coming in under estimate by $1.7 million. $1.35 million of this

Work continues on the Water Treatment Plant Expansion.

amount stems from three projects that will be carried over and completed in 2014: • Water Treatment Plant Expansion project, $925,551; • West Gate Entrance Renovation project, $387,467; • DeSoto Golf Course Renovation, $35,000. Net transfers of funds from reserves to operating totaled $3.9 million mainly due to the use of reserve funds for the Water Plant Expansion Project. 

HSV Board Approves Policy for Budget Amendments THE HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE Board of Directors voted at the Jan. 15 regular meeting to approve a budget

amendment policy. This policy will provide a formal process for budget amendments to the POA's adopted annual budget. It also allows for tracking and reporting of adjustments reallocating or restating budgeted funds. The policy has two levels. The first level gives the HSV General Manager/Chief Operating Officer authority to approve inter- and intra- departmental changes that do not impact the budget's bottom line. The second level requires Board approval for overall budget changes increasing revenues and expenditures, adding additional capital expenditures that change the budget's bottom line. A copy of the amendment is available on the Governing Documents section of the Hot Springs Village website, www.hsvpoa.org.  Spring 2014 Hot Springs Village Advocate 13

THE HOT SPRINGS Village Board of Directors approved an ordinance on pet control at the Feb. 19 Regular Meeting. The ordinance was drafted after a resident was killed by a bullmastiff/pit bull mix in Hot Springs Village on Nov. 21, 2013. The ordinance will be presented to the Garland and Saline County Quorum Courts for review and enactment. At a town hall meeting on Jan. 23, Keith Keck, Hot Springs Village Board president, said the ordinance would encourage more responsible pet owners by “increased awareness of expectations for restraint and control of any dog,” allowing an understanding of “personal strengths and weaknesses in controlling and handling a dog,” and a better understanding of a dog's personality. Keck said the ordinance would allow consistent and strengthened regulations for HSV because it standardizes laws for Garland and Saline county and has a stronger mechanism to encourage less responsible pet owners. The ordinance was adapted from and includes language from ordinanc-

es in Garland and Saline counties as well as Hot Springs Village rules. Specific language on the following items are outlined in the ordinance. Vicious Dogs: The ordinance outlines specific and detailed requirements for pet owners of court-determined “vicious dogs,” of any breed including secure confinement requirements, muzzle/leash specifications of at least three feet and 300 lb. tensile strength, the potential for court directed liability insurance requirements, a spay/neuter requirement, immediate notification of escape and a penalty for non-compliance of a minimum of $500 and maximum of $1,000 and possible jail time. High Risk Breeds: The ordinance defines high risk breeds as “gripper” breeds, commonly identified as the pit bull breed, and specifies secure confinement requirements, leash specifications of six feet and 300 lbs. tensile strength. At-large dog owners are subject to court of jurisdiction action and a penalty for non-compliance with a minimum fine of $500 and a maximum fine of $1,000 and possible jail

time. Restraint/Control: The ordinance incorporates a Village rule already in effect requiring dogs to be under restraint/control on common property, and this ordinance expands the lease requirement to all common property with a court determined penalty for unrestrained/uncontrolled dogs sited multiple times. Dogs would be allowed to be unrestrained for the following reasons: shows or competitions, on the private property of the owner or property of others with their consent, for law enforcement purposes or to help a disabled person, or under owner control at the Desoto Dog Park or other common property as approved by the Board. Pet Registration: The ordinance requires mandatory registration with the Property Owners Association for dogs living in the Village for more than 30 days and includes breed identification and proof of rabies vaccination.

Notable In Hot Springs Village "Sport for a Lifetime" Offers Physical, Mental, Social Benefits

T

Tennis has historically been called the “sport for a lifetime.” Those who espouse the game offer a host of physical, mental and even social benefits for those who play the sport regularly. Health experts claim playing tennis just three hours a week may cut risk of death in half, according to Healthy Magazine. Tennis players often exhibit more vigor, optimism and self-esteem and less depression, anger and confusion, according to experts, who also say that the alertness and tactical thinking required to play the game may actually generate new connections between the nerves in the brain, continuing cerebral development throughout life. For these reasons and more, this traditional sport is growing “by leaps and bounds,” said Bob Wagstaff, Coronado Tennis Center pro and manager. It’s never too late to take up the sport, continued Wagstaff, noting the Coronado Tennis Center’s participants range in age from 6 to 86. “Though many people play tennis for most of their lives, some players here at the Coronado Tennis Center didn’t start playing until after they retired and they continued to play the sport for the next 20 years,” he said. Ten of the Center’s 13 courts are clay, which is made of volcanic rock

and is easier on the body. The unique surface offers less chance of injuring an ankle or knee while playing. In addition to physical and mental health, the game also offers social health benefits. Playing tennis with others is a great way to meet new friends, said Wagstaff, noting the sport brings people together, whether celebrating a win or dealing with defeat. “Tennis communities become like families,” he said. In Hot Springs Village, the Coronado Tennis Center offers a variety of programs and events that fit the needs

and wants of players of all ages and abilities, says Wagstaff. “We have people from age 7 to 70 training to improve their games,” he said, noting the differing ability levels of players helps the staff to more easily pair up those with similar abilities. And the cost to play at such a great facility is minimal, thanks to the Hot Springs Village Tennis Association’s (HSVTA) administration of most events. The HSVTA, an association of over 400 members, offers league play at all levels including mixed leagues, women’s and men’s doubles, USTA Team Tennis, and junior training. The tennis center also offers other organized play on a weekly basis, USTA-sanctioned tournaments and court reservations. Village tennis players may choose from a variety of programs ranging from league play to fun social events. The Tennis Center is currently undergoing some upgrades. Six of the Center’s 10 clay courts are currently being rebuilt with a new sub-surface watering system. This update will help alleviate reoccurring leaks in the current pressurized system. The contractor, Australian Courtworks, is also changing the slope of the courts to drain toward the north to deter erosion of the facility’s sidewalks. Conduit will also be installed for adding lighting in the future. The Center’s hard courts will also be resurfaced during the renovations. Please note: Refunds for annual passes will not be given because of the renovations. The Coronado Tennis Center will remain open and clay courts 7-10 and hard courts 11-13 will be available for play at most times.  Spring 2014 Hot Springs Village Advocate 19
