|To: Members of Fast Horse Ranch HOA|
|Subject: Introduction of new Board Members|
Each new board member thanks the membership for their support and allowing us to represent you and your interests in maintaining Fast Horse Ranch (FHR) as one of the premier manufactured home developments in the Tucson area.
George Elliott, President
Each member of the FHR HOA and each of the 114 lots within FHR are governed by a set of recorded documents, By-Laws and Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs).
In addition to the powers and duties of the Board, enumerated in article 9 of the By-Laws, the Board has been entrusted by the membership to ensure compliance with provisions of the CC&Rs, particularly Article III, Section 2 (a) Architectural Control.
The Board will accomplish its responsibilities in accordance with Article III, Section 2 (v) by conducting monthly drive by inspections and by responding to written requests/complaints of members.
If the Board determines a member is not in compliance with a provision of the CC&Rs or the Architectural Control Guidelines, the Board will send the member a letter referencing the specific provision of the CC&Rs or ACC Guidelines and afford the member an opportunity to make appropriate corrections or, with 15 days, submit a letter to the Board outlining specific plans to correct the non-compliance. If, by the next scheduled inspection, the member has not corrected or submitted a plan for correcting the non-compliance, the Board will send a second letter. This letter will again identify the provision and the non-compliance and inform the member that the third and all subsequent notices until corrected will include a $100 fine.
In the event a member is in debt to the HOA in the amount of $500 or more (including delinquent dues, fines, penalties and interest) collection action will be initiated in accordance with Article VII of the CC&RS.
The Board recently completed an initial drive through inspection and there were several common discrepancies noted.
The Board will start conducting formal monthly tours through the development starting in mid April.
Plans requiring ACC approval, problems, complaints or suggestions can be mailed to the board at

In accordance with Article III, Section 2 (a) no improvements of any type, that alters the exterior appearance of any property can be commenced without submitting a plan and receiving written approval from the ACC. The ACC will meet monthly to review all plans and send letters of approval to the homeowner. If notification and approval is required sooner, send a letter or e-mail with the plan to the HOA address above and request an immediate response to meet your deadline.
If there is sufficient interest the board will set up an e-mail list to communicate items of interest or concern to members. If you are interested in receiving periodic e-mails from the Board, please mail or use the web address and e-mail the President with your current e-mail address.
The Board will also post items of interest on the web page bulletin board.

The Boards desire is to protect every member’s investment and interest in FHR. Member’s participation, cooperation and input are essential in meeting that goal.

On Tuesday May 5th, the Board will meet at the Fire Station (not annual HOA Meeting) to finalize old business including: the updated By-Laws; procedures concerning notification and collection of delinquent dues and updating CC&Rs. The CC&R committee and member recommended changes to the current CC&Rs will be discussed. A final draft of the CC&Rs will be prepared and mailed to all FHRHOA members for approval. A return stamped envelope and a ballet will be included to allow each member to vote in accordance with Article XIII, Section 2 of the current CC&Rs. It requires the affirmative vote of 75% of the members voting to accept the recommended changes to the CC&Rs. Votes must be received prior to the established deadline to be counted.
