- Finance Committee Recommended 2016 Budget
The Finance Committee met Monday and approved without modification the Pass 2 Budget. It is therefore submittedation to the Board as the recommended 2016 Budget for The Legends.
In addition, the Finance Committee reviewed and approved for presentation to the Board a proposal that would help the Board deal with covering the expense of a new asset acquired during the year when it wasn't anticipated and planned for during the budget process. Click here to view the Proposal on Funding Assets from Reserve Account. I would like to review this with the Board at Wednesday's meeting and ask for Board approval as an AR&R at their December meeting.

- CALC Summer Update 2015
It was an interesting and beautiful summer. We hope everyone had a safe trip home. We're looking forward to your return. The summer brought lots of rain – heavier than usual. That means lots of beautiful flowers for those of us who were here. But it also means a couple of strong storms and lots of weeds.
We lost a couple of trees and a few plants but not one single weed to the storms. We’ll have to replace some of those this fall. We’re beginning our fall trimming in a few weeks. Now is a good time of the year to trim trees, so we'll be thinning them to improve their health and the mountain views of the homeowners. We'll do some more severe trimming in January.
As for the weeds, Armando’s crew has done an excellent job of spraying and removing them so that the place has looked great. We only lost one elderly couple who got too close to them and were ensnared and disappeared. Their house will be on the market soon! (Ha!)
For those of you who are not yet back, please travel safely.
Bob Martin, CALC Chair
- Annual Meeting
The minutes from the 2014 Annual Meeting are now available.
- CALC Report - February 11, 2015
1. The cutting of Texas Rangers began Feb, 11 by Armando’s Crew utilizing drop box arranged by John Overbay.
2. Problems with West Bank Trimming: Due to a misunderstanding by Ted Tasso, Landscaper for Sunrise Point, several trees were trimmed more than we had expected or approved. This action will eventually correct itself. However in the meantime disapproval has been received by Legends HOA President, Art Quinn, and CALC Chair. In response to the complaints, several trees and shrubs will be added to the West Bank. This was not anticipated in 2015 budget but will be taken out of CALC operating budget. Adjustment will be requested in 2016
3. Trimming of trees and shrubs continues
4. The heavy rains in January/February brought a surprise visit of winter weeds. Armando applied additional spray of weeds and there is improvement. Additional cutting, if needed, will be completed in the next few weeks.
5. After discussion, CALC has decided, that no new plantings of Blue Agave would be allowed in Common Area. They are subject to infestation of snout nosed weevil which destroy the plant.
6. Armando has been asked to use his discretion to remove plants that have surpassed their normal/healthy lifecycle and appear dead, sick or deformed.
7. The CALC REQUEST FOR ACTION form has been updated and will be submitted to Jill for publication on Legends website after review by the Committee.
8. Committee reviewed suggested plants for addition to Tulum and Espinosa this spring. Art and Leah Sachtjen and Carol Bier will mark spots with stakes for planting March/April.

- Message from CALC.
Greetings from CALC. We are aware that there are lots of weeds following the summer monsoons. We are grateful for the rain in the desert. But as it causes a wonderful blossoming of color everywhere, it also brings out the accompanying weeds throughout the Legends and all of Green Valley. Our landscaper is very aware of the weeds and is focusing much energy on their removal. We will keep the community looking as beautiful as possible.
