Every Fall homeowners elect three members to the Foothills Clusters HOA Board of Directors. Board members are elected for three year terms. The three members whose terms are expiring are Brian Bickel, Doug Hughes and Austin Westnitzer. We thank them for their serving on our board and their contributions for the past three years.
For 2021, we have five candidates running for the three open seats. In alphabetical order they are:
Each candidate has submitted a brief one page statement for your consideration. You can click on the names above to read each candidate’s statement.
We encourage all homeowners to participate in the governance of our association. Ballots are being mailed to each homeowner’s registered address. Ballots should be signed and received back no later than Friday, November 5, 2021.
Recently there was an incident of an unleased dog attacking a service dog and its owner in the Common Area. The victim dog needed stitches and the dog’s owner suffered injury as well. This is not the first incident involving an unleashed dog attacking another dog in this area even though the owner was present.
This is a reminder that Pima County has strict ordinances concerning dogs. Pima County Ordinance 6.04.030 states dogs are always to be on a leash when outside of the owner’s private property. Your dog MUST be on a leash at all times while your dog is on public and private streets. This includes FCHOA private roads and the desert Common Area governed by the Master Association and its member HOAs.
Leash law violations (and bites) can be reported to Pima Animal Control Center at 724-5900, ext. #4. A dispatcher is available 7 days a week until 9 p.m. After 9 p.m. bites and violations should be reported to the sheriff’s department. It is helpful to have the date, time and location of the violation, a description of the dog, and name and/or address for the owner if possible. Pictures of the off-leash dog are very helpful but violations should be reported with or without all of this information.
As a result of the recent incident, the Board of the Foothills Homeowners Master Association voted to post leash law signs at the entrance to each of the member HOAs and near the informal entrances to the Campbell Wash.

Early this summer, the Board of Directors authorized the Treasurer to engage an independent firm to study the financial status of the HOA and its responsibility to maintain and protect its assets, including the repair and maintenance of its roads.
Association Reserves of Chandler, Arizona was selected to perform the study. The study was completed on June 12, 2018. A copy of the study can be seen by clicking on the following:
Upon receiving the study it was first independently reviewed by the board members. At the July Board of Directors meeting the board directed both the Landscape and Roads Committee and the Finance Committee to review the study and to offer their recommendations. Both committees approved the recommendations of the study. Now, the Board of Directors will formally review the recommendations of the study and propose appropriate actions.
The first discussion of the reserve study and its recommendations will take place at the September 10, 2018 Board of Directors meeting. The meeting will take place at the Catalina Foothills High School, House #1 Seminar Room at 6:30 PM.
An essential part of this discussion will be finance options for the recommended road repairs. These options will be presented by the Treasurer. An open discussion for all homeowners will follow.
All homeowners are encouraged to attend the meeting.
More information will be posted on this site as it becomes available. Announcements will be posted on Nextdoor and sent to members of the Association’s email list.
