IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL HOA AND AUXILIARY MEMBERS-
July 27, 2020
Dear BAC Members,
Covid 19 has continued to result in State recommendations to limit meeting attendance, social distancing, and etc., again affecting BAC’s ability to hold the annual membership meeting. Members of the Board have voted to cancel the membership meeting that was rescheduled for September 5 during Labor Day weekend. We apologize if the cancellation causes any inconvenience, but are sincere in not wanting to be the cause of further contagion. One Board member wrote, “I will miss seeing everyone.”
Jim, Denise and I echo that statement.

Until further notice, pond construction and use is prohibited. Water seepage and evaporation can result in unnecessarily excessive water usage.
NO FUEL, NO FIRE, NO KIDDING
We on the Board want to strongly emphasize with all of you how dry the conditions are in this area and the need for you to do all you can to consider fire safety, to take fire precautions and to prevent fires on your properties. Our local Heber-Overgaard Fire Department on the corner of Hwy. 260 and Lumber Valley has a wealth of information and knowledge available in pamphlet and handout form and in counsel that can be received from the firefighters. Property surveys by firefighters can be arranged at the fire station. By taking about five minutes of reading informative pamphlets and just a few hours of work to clear combustible material and haul it off, all of our homes and properties can have the potential for fire damage reduced by a considerable degree.
We ask that as many of you as possible visit the front office personnel in the fire department to get more information. As you are driving by, take the time to stop. We recommend that each of you obtain the “Homeowners’ “Inside and Out” Wildfire Checklist” that is available at the fire department. We have also placed this most valuable checklist on our website, OurBAC.com. Please print it out and take the time to complete the survey on your property. The research and work that you do to protect your own home and property will also help to protect your neighbor’s and can spur others on in the community to work to protect theirs.
Make yourselves aware of the local fire restrictions by visiting the home page of the Navajo County website, by observing the fire danger sign located adjacent to Hwy. 260 by the Black Mesa U.S. Forest Service office and by observing the sign in front of the fire department.
It is our responsibility as Architectural Committee members to ensure CC&R guidelines are followed in new building or additions (buildings, structure, wall or fence that is constructed, altered, or relocated on any property) after initial building. Approval is required in writing by the architectural committee.
Building is done following Navajo County guidelines and we are tasked to ensure buildings or additions are aesthetically pleasing, blend in nicely and will not detract from the beauty that is BAC. Please communicate with us and let us help you. You can find committee member phone info below by clicking on Your Board Members. New Home Construction and Architectural Change Request forms are available for you to download by clicking on the Forms and Meeting Minutes link above. You can print them, fill them out, sign them and then scan and e-mail them to us at Contactbac@yahoo.com, or contact us personally. We will contact you with questions, may be required to meet with you, and then we will approve the projects and sign the forms. Approval must be obtained before beginning your projects. Let’s work together to keep property values optimized and above all, keep BAC one of the most beautiful areas in Arizona.
The Buckskin Artist Community continually strives to make our neighborhood the best on the mountain. We value your community spirit, pride of ownership and our combined serenity in this wonderful location.
