ANTHEM ENVY? The neighbors to the north want an Anthem experience complete with Community Center membership.

Arroyo Norte Still Wants Access ACC Special Meeting


(The regular March meeting has been rescheduled.)

ACC Board of Directors Special Meeting Thursday, April 4, 6:30 p.m. Anthem Community Center Topics to be discussed: Arroyo Norte Facilities Use Agreement The agreement would allow Arroyo Norte residents access to the Community Park, Liberty Bell Park and the Anthem Community Center—virtually the same access as Anthem homeowners—for $40 per month per household, about two-thirds of what Anthem residents pay.

rroyo Norte, the new development just north of Anthem—not to be confused with Arroyo Grande, an Anthem outpost to the northwest—yearns for Anthem access. In fact, early advertisements for the community erroneously touted free access to Anthem’s wonderland of amenities. Back in May 2011, Starwood Land Ventures, the developer of the 300home community, requested access to Anthem to fulfill an

emergency egress requirement during construction. The access would have been gated and had the potential to become permanent. After consideration, though, the Community Council closed the door on the request, citing “not much in the way of advantages to Anthem,” according to then-Council member Ron Jerich. Today, Arroyo Norte has again requested access, but not to Anthem roads. This time, the neighbors to the north want the whole package: Access to the pool, the water park, the gym, the Adventure Playground… In short, Arroyo Norte wants what Anthem owners have: an all-access pass. And this time, Council is finding more in the way of advantages… about $140,000 more. The idea is to charge Norte owners a use-andconsumption fee of about $40 per month per household, less than what Anthem residents pay by about a third.

• Dental Care for Children to Seniors • Preventative Care & Cleaning • Tooth-Colored Fillings • Crowns, Bridges, Dentures • Gum Treatment • Cosmetic Dentistry • One-hour Teeth Whitening • Root Canal Therapy

The $40-cost was calculated by CFO Doug Greenstein using a method similar to the one used to calculate the fees paid by Bela Rosa Apartments and the Village (condos) residents. (See ACCESS on Page 16)

(From ACCESS on Page 15)

According to Anthem CEO Jenna Kollings, the difference between the $62.50 Anthem residents pay, and the proposed rate for Arroyo Norte is because Anthem would not handle the administrative aspects of the fee. “We are not asking Arroyo Norte to pay for administrative services that they do not receive and which will not change with the inclusion or exclusion of Arroyo Norte,” Kollings said. “Thus, the $40-calculation is derived specifically from the body of services which will have an impact from potentially increased use.” Annexation is not on the table.

Cash In, Value Down

The estimated $140,000 per year revenue would be collected by Arroyo

Showering in salt-softened water leaves you feeling slippery, slimy, and not quite clean. The residue often left behind, may dry out skin, or leave the scalp itchy & scaly. With the drying effects of sodium, it may also cause damage to hair, making it limp & brittle. Our no maintenance & salt-free water system goes into 3 stages of filtration + 1 stage of conditioning. It takes out the harmful minerals & leaves in great tasting water in every faucet, which is also moisturizing for your hair & skin.

Norte’s HOA, and so would not constitute as a burden to the ACC. “It addresses the inevitable use of Anthem Community Council’s… facilities,” said Kollings, “particularly Community Park and Liberty Bell Park which are going to be used by those residents whether or not we have this agreement.” The ability to buy a new home closer to Anthem’s main amenities than many homes within Anthem, and pay less for access to those amenities than Anthem homeowners, would likely lure buyers away from Anthem; a community largely valued on its amenities. At the meeting, it was noted that many Arroyo Norte homeowners were previously Anthem residents. io

ALL ACCESS “Anthem Community Council is considering granting Arroyo Norte property owners access to Anthem’s amenities for a fee that would generate an estimated $140,000 annually. Is this worth the additional traffic through its facilities?”

Renée Reeves

Cheryl Gosnell

“I would support it. It would generate more revenue and not impact the parks because they are not that crowded anyway.”

“I think it’s a good move. When I go to the Community Center it never seems too crowded. As far as the parks go, people not from Anthem use them anyway, so if they [Arroyo Norte] want to pay the fee that is fine.”

“I do think it’s a good idea. I come to the park all the time and there are people not from here… anyway, so we may as well use the funds to maintain and support the facilities. It can help local businesses also because more people might come into Anthem.”

Retired, Anthem

“I think Arroyo Norte is close enough that they will use the facilities whether they pay or not. I think we should take advantage of the funds to maintain the facilities.”

Weather Bug provides access to weather data from the Anthem School weather station on for lightning and severe weather while becoming a resource for live weather and HD images and videos. Area residents and part-timers were able to watch last summer’s severe storm roll across Anthem from the live camera feed while getting immediate measures of wind speed, rainfall and barometric pressure. Miller, Principal Deb Roets and others at Anthem School monitor the weather station daily, and report any problems with the nine weather instruments and/or video camera. It is a perfect example of how a local classroom can become an extension of information and knowledge for every home and business in the community—a partnership that enhances our students’ education and the community at large. “The technology is extremely valuable for the kids to see and interact with on a daily basis,” said Cindy Miller. “It also makes them feel special to have this amazing technology in our classroom.” And, it is just another reason why Anthem is such a unique and wonderful community in which to live. io 20 |
