President's Message
 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.

                                         George Robinson

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 info@cat9.org 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.

This information pertains to new construction, remodeling, and any new additions to your property.

All property owners in Catalina Foothills Estates are bound by certain rules and conditions set forth in the covenants. All
owners should have a copy of these covenants in their possession. These covenants specify that all architectural work
must meet the applicable provisions of the covenants before the work commences. This includes all building projects,
such as patio walls, and roofs, additions, satellite dishes, etc., as well as the initial construction. This also includes any
exterior painting.

To assure compliance with the intent of the covenants, the plans or specifications must be approved by the Association
Board of Directors.

For information or guidance regarding the submission process please contact any board member.

For a Neighborhood Watch program to be successful, it must remain active. This means that all of us should
be aware of our environment, report emergency situations such as break-in, theft, vandalism,or other
security issue.

Through the Neighborhood Area Leader, individual Block Leaders will be contacted and they in turn will
notify residents in their assigned sections of the subdivision either by e-mail or phone.

Neighborhood Watch contact information can be found in this newsletter on the “Cat 9 Contact Information”

  Please keep your name, address, phone number and e-mail address
  current with the association so that you will receive all new

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.
