President’s Column: March 2019

Neighbors,

Very soon you will receive, either by mail, in person or on our website three new written consent forms. These will look very similar to the consent form you signed to support our settlement agreement and purchase the commercial units. You, the membership, have taken a giant step toward revitalizing Tapestry by approving this agreement. Your board now needs the necessary tools to make purchase of the commercial units a success. All three of the written consents relate directly to our ability to lease or sell these units. Please look for your forms or get them from Howard and vote yes so we can make the money spent on the agreement work in our best interest. (Click here to read a quick summary of what each consent involves.)

We will have a board meeting to further explain these three consents. The Board needs everyone who voted to settle the lawsuit and purchase the commercial units to support this next step by approving these consents. They are necessary tools for your Board to move the commercial properties forward.

In other news…
The board recently attended HOA board training to become more knowledgeable in an effort to better serve our community.

We are reaching out to our neighbors to establish relationships and possible business linkages. We have established a relationship with the Heard Museum and the Inter-Tribal Council of Arizona (ITCA) at the executive director level. Possibilities exist for us to work together in the areas of security, IT, parking, commercial space availability, and sharing of events and news via our respective newsletters. You are encouraged to attend events and to warmly greet our neighbors. Tapestry should lead by example to further develop our community.

It has come to our attention that the all-glass high rise building at 2020 N. Central, just south of us, and its major occupant, CBRE Facility Source, are asking for a variance for a commercial sign. The proposed sign would be on top of the building facing north toward Tapestry, be illuminated and 80 feet in length. There will be a public zoning hearing at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 14 at Phoenix City Hall, 200 W. Washington St., Assembly Room C. If you can attend to offer comments, it would be of great help to those concerned with the quality of life in our neighborhood.
