A straw vote (non-binding) was taken at the November 2004 Annual Meeting. The vote covered
three Road paving options:
Do nothing this year except fix potholes and add any money left at the end of the year to
our Road Fund. (received 7 votes)
Increase Dues by $300 to a total per year of $400 for 6 years and then repave our roads
at the end of that period while continuing to fix potholes during the interim. (received 3
Repave the roads this year with a Special Assessment of $1,800 per Lot. (received 17
The results were overwhelming, 74 percent were for doing something (either "start saving" or "do
it" now) and 63 percent wanted the work completed in 2005.
Because the sample was both small (27 Lots out of 130) and the results were overwhelming, your
Board is asking all Cat 9 members to respond to the following survey of the same set of options
(1. do nothing, 2. raise Dues for 6 years or, 3. do a Special Assessment) to give us some
directional guidance. We need a large survey response in order to make a responsible decision.
Another small sample would be useless.
This survey is only a non-binding straw vote.
1. Do nothing except fix potholes.
2. Increase yearly dues by $300 for six years and then repave our roads.
3. Repave roads in 2006 with a Special Assessment of $1,800 per Lot.
Members with e-mail should send their selection (1, 2 or 3) to email@example.com by March1, 2005 so
that we can collate the data for discussion at the March 7th Board Meeting.
Members without e-mail should either send their selection to CAT 9 HOA, P.O. Box 36225,
Tucson , Az., 85740, or call Kathleen Flaherty at 577-6283 by March 1, 2005.

Arrangements have been made with AAA Landscaping to reposition and cement the signpost at the corner of Circulo
Solaz and Solaz Tercero. This is not an inexpensive proposition, several contractors refused the job. The Board is aware
that there are other signs that may require resetting as time goes by. Treat them gently!
On another note, spring rains are sure to bring unwanted growth around your yards. Please keep an eye out for the
ubiquitous desert broom and pull the small plants up now, they are much easier to remove when their taproot is only a
foot long (but still a challenge.) Other unwanted plants can include the fiddlehead, initially a pleasant plant with small
white flowers clustered at the end of long curved stalks (but it turns into a sticker monster after the flowers dry,) and
tumbleweed. I have noticed a few of them growing by La Encantada and we certainly don't want our neighborhood
plagued by these behemoths.
As always, keep your eye out for trash along your street frontage. Thanks.
