Just a reminder – The Board of Directors mentioned in the Community Manager’s recent newsletter that they are looking for new Budget Committee members to work on the 2009 Sabino Mountain Budget. This work would only entail committee meetings in October through mid-November of this year. This is your opportunity to assist in formulating the new budget which sounds challenging since the the legal fees have gone up ; the community owes past taxes due to an oversight of the previous management company, only to mention a few items that may lead to an increase in the HOA fees that were highlighted in the community newsletter. Community participation insures the best run community! Call Mitch Fox at 760-3202 or Deby Wild, the community manager at 760-7798 to begin participation.
The President of the Sabino Mountain Board of Directors has told me that quard rails will be installed going down the hill on Quail Canyon. There is a bad corner at Sabino Mountain Rd and Quail Canyon; then going down the hill there is a steep drop with no guard rails. This is good news for Sabino Mountain; it limits the liability of the Home Owners Association, and more importantly insures no one will end up in the steep ravine which would mean loss of life or very serious injury.
Bob Raynor’s luscious 6,747 square foot home on almost 1 acre in The Retreat and list priced at $2,495,000, went under contract in mid-August. The Retreat is a small enclave of upscale homes located in the second gated area of Sabino Mountain. Bob built all the luxurious homes in this very small, but exclusive area with tremendous high Catalina mountain views. Bob is the builder – owner of Outpost Development Homes – and has built many semi-custom and custom homes in Sabino Mountain and elsewhere in Tucson. His gorgeous Mediterranean villa style home had been recently under contract and it fell through, but it was not long before another lucky buyer scooped it up.
