The mission of the Roadhaven Board of Directors is to ensure an environment where the Roadhaven Community can achieve an enhanced quality of life, in a fiscally responsible manner, by optimizing property values, and planning for the future.


On Thursday, April 11, 2024 our legal representative hosted an informative session about the proposed Homeowner Budget Initiative. This meeting was in response to the suggested changes to the CC&Rs that is currently being circulated by a homeowner to other homeowners via email and on Facebook. We want to ensure homeowners understand the impact of the suggested changes and have access to this information, not just what is being disseminated on Facebook and via email.

AGM RECAP (03/19/2024)

The Annual General Meeting of the Homeowners Association (HOA) convened at 7pm on Tuesday, March 19, with homeowners gathering in the Rec Hall. After the singing of the Canadian and US national anthems by Cal Carratt and Jim Hanson, accompanied by Joanne Endres, the meeting commenced with the Board President, Sherri Stewart, introducing the members of the Board and the Board Advisory Group, consisting of Carl Thoutt and Roger Haines, and welcoming all attendees. The Chairperson of the Nomination and Election Committee, Deb Tester, advised quorum as identified in Roadhaven governing documents, had been attained.

Steve Byfield and his management team outlined what had been happening in Roadhaven since the previous AGM. Five-year milestone pins were given to Roadhaven employees Patricia Mayorga, Tracey Jennings, Jamie Ray, and Deb Weinberg received her 10-year milestone pin. Congratulations to Main Office employee Susie Redmond on becoming Employee of the Year. It was announced that next season, while populating and improving the online directory, we would also provide a print directory for a nominal $5 fee, as well as a pdf directory in the Roadhaven portal. Next, a review of this season’s activities and a sneak peek at what residents might look forward to next season, were announced. 

Among the significant topics discussed by homeowners was the increase in the HOA assessment. Many people provide input into the annual budget process including our Management and Accounting teams, the Finance Committee, the Rec Council Committee and the Project Planning Group. The proposed budget is developed, reviewed, adjusted, and reviewed several times before being presented by the Finance Committee to the Board of Directors at a Finance Committee meeting. The Board Treasurer, Doug Bryson, reviewed the FY25 budget presentation and advised that due to growing inflation, escalating labor costs including the minimum wage increase, rising contractor charges and general costs of maintaining 40-year-old infrastructure, there would be an increase in the HOA assessment to $840/quarter. This decision was made after careful consideration of the financial implications, the impact it will have on all homeowners and the necessity to maintain the quality of services and amenities provided to homeowners.

Claudia Mescher spoke about the Roadhaven on-site restaurant and the board’s decision to offer the current restaurant team of Rande and Judy Purdy the option to operate the restaurant as contractors. We are currently awaiting their decision. Roadhaven would maintain the building and the equipment; however, the contractor would have full control over hours of operation, purchasing, staffing, menu, etc. If Roadhaven residents support the restaurant, this will continue to be a valued amenity many other HOAs do not have.

Deb Tester announced the voting results, and incumbent Board members Doug Bryson and Cindy Weingart were re-elected, highlighting the community’s confidence in their leadership and dedication. The third candidate, Michael Kramer, although not elected, was recognized, and thanked for putting his name forward.

Voting results of the proposed CC&R amendments were announced and those that were approved by the membership were:

Add to Article 3, Section 3.2.E – Occupancy Restrictions – To ensure safety for all residents, staff and guests, anyone who has been classified as a sex offender would not be permitted to reside, occupy or have use of the common areas.

Add to Article 3, Section 5.4 – Board of Directors Candidate Eligibility – Removal of write-in names from future ballots to ensure potential candidates are informed, educated, and properly vetted in the role they would be fulfilling.

Add to Article 2, Section 2.3.E – Seasonal Resort Hours – To document seasonal resort hours for Roadhaven facilities and clubs throughout the year.

One proposed CC&R amendment was not approved by the membership:

Removal of Article 2, Section 2.3.E Owners Easement of Enjoyment Limitations – Homeowners who rent out their properties would retain use of Roadhaven amenities. 

In summary, the Annual General Meeting provided a platform for homeowners to review the previous year and items affecting the community. With the re-election of experienced Board members and the continued involvement of homeowners, the community remains poised for continued growth and prosperity in the face of challenges. The decision to significantly increase the HOA assessment, albeit necessary due to economic factors, was a difficult communication to the homeowners and as one homeowner noted, ‘we will all get through this together.’

Add to Article 3, Section 3.2.E Occupancy Restrictions

Added section to read: Occupancy Restrictions: Any person required to register as a sex offender pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes 13-3821 or pursuant to any other equivalent state statue, and who has been classified as level 1, 2, or 3 offender, or such other similarity equivalent risk classification as determined by any other state (“Registrant”), shall not be permitted to purchase or permanently or temporarily reside or occupy in any Lot with the Association for any length or period of time or use the Common Areas. This shall apply to all sales or transfers of Lots in the Association occurring on or after the effective date of this Amendment and shall also apply to any person who becomes a registered sex offender after becoming a Lot owner.

Upon learning of a Registrant occupying a Lot in the Association in violation of this Section, the Association will use its best efforts to provide the Owner of the Lot with a written notice sent by first class U.S. Mail to the Owner’s last known address, or the last known address on record with the county assessor’s office, that the Owner must cause the removal of the Registrant from the Owner’s Lot within sixty (60) days of the date of the notice. If the Registrant fails to vacate the Lot within sixty (60) days of receiving the Association’s notice, then the Association shall be entitled to a mandatory injunction in a court of proper jurisdiction requiring the Owner to cause the immediate removal of the Registrant from the Lot.

If the Registrant is also the Owner of the Lot, the Owner shall vacate the Lot in the Association within sixty (60) days of receiving notice to do so from the Association. If the Registrant fails to vacate the Lot within sixty (60) days of receiving the Association’s notice, then the Association shall be entitled to a mandatory injunction in a court of proper jurisdiction requiring the Registrant to immediately vacate the Lot.

Any action, requirement, or restriction set forth within this Section may be enforced, taken, or pursued by either the Association or any individual Owner. If the Association or any individual Owner pursues any form of legal action to enforce any provision of this Section, regardless of whether such action is in the form of sending a violation letter seeking voluntary compliance, or seeking injunctive relief, eviction or any other form of relief to gain compliance with this provision, the Association or individual Owner shall be entitled to reimbursement of all expenses, including, but not limited to, all attorneys’ fees and costs, from the Owner in violation of this restriction. If such action is taken by the Association, all expenses of the Association shall also be secured by the lien for assessments as set forth herein.

The Association reserves the right to adopt rules and procedures for monitoring Registrants and enforcing the provisions of this restriction. Property ownership and sex and violent offender registration information are constantly changing and may not be updated promptly or accurately by those governmental entities required to maintain such information data. Because the Association is not responsible for maintaining this data, the Association is not responsible for any errors or inaccuracies in property ownership or registry information. Nothing in this Section shall create an affirmative duty on the Association to monitor or inform residents of the presence of a Registrant or other type of offender in the Association, nor does it establish any affirmative duty on the Association to pursue injunctive relief, eviction or removal of a Registrant from the Association or enforce any other provision of this Section. Therefore, the Association shall not be liable to any Owner, Resident, occupant, guest or other invitee as the result of the Association’s failure, or alleged failure, whether negligent, intentional or otherwise, to monitor for the presence of Registrants or other types of offenders in the Association, to notify any Owner, Resident, occupant, guest or other invitee of the presence, residency or occupancy of a Registrant or other type of offender in the Association or to pursue injunctive relief, eviction or removal of a Registrant or other type of offender from the Association or enforce any other provision of this Section. Residents concerned about the presence of Registrants in the Association are charged with the duty and responsibility to regularly monitor on their own all mandatory online registries for such information.

Add to Article 3, Section 5.4 - Board of Directors Candidate Eligibility

Added section to read: Homeowners who have owned property in Roadhaven Resort for a minimum of one-year, maintain a positive current standings with the Association, with no defaults or outstanding violations, and are not a party to pending litigation or other administrative claims against the association may volunteer to apply for an applicable position on the Board of Directors through the annual elections process. Eligible candidates must follow the process and procedures defined by the Nominations and Elections Committee with the authorization to allow the committee to conduct an interview, run a background check, and provide the job description and duties of the board members. Once the eligible candidate is deemed approved to run for election, they will be included as a candidate for the members of the association to vote upon. The Board of Directors shall have the sole discretion to accept or reject the approval of candidates by the Nominations and Elections Committee. Candidates who receive the highest number of votes will be elected. Write-in candidates are expressly prohibited and write-in names on a ballot will be deemed as a voided ballot and the vote will not be counted, as all potential or running candidates must comply with the requirements of this Section.

Adding of Article 2, Section 2.3.E – Seasonal Resort Hours

Added section to read: Roadhaven Resort offers fewer amenities May 1-Sept 30th, as the resort was established as a seasonal resort. This upholds the fiduciary responsibility expected to keep costs reasonable for all association members.

Roadhaven Resort is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors. Board members serve for a three-year term, for a maximum of two terms.

The results of voting are normally announced at the Annual General Meeting of the Association held yearly in March.

Sherri Stewart


My husband Roger, and I call Calgary, Alberta home. We have two great sons, Scot and Jess, and a fabulous daughter-in-law, Jessica, and two amazing grandkids Jack and Margot.

We rented in Roadhaven in 2012 & 2013, buying our home on Seminole in late 2013. I love technology and Roger calls me the “techie gadget queen.” I have my Local Authority Administration Certificate from the University of Alberta and spent my pre-retirement years working for TELUS Communications Inc in voice, data, and internet.

This is my second term on your Roadhaven Board of Directors. I was Secretary for the first couple of years and am now your Board President. Roadhaven was built around volunteerism and serving on the HOA Board is one way I can contribute to this amazing community. I cannot think of a better way to spend retirement than in Roadhaven. This community and the residents have so much to offer. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve on your Board.

Jerry McAssey


I am originally from Toronto Ontario’, Canada. My wife Carol and I live in Claresholm Alberta during the summer months and Roadhaven in the winter months. We have owned and lived in Roadhaven for 6 years now.

My strengths that I bring to the board of directors include document control, writing procedures, training systems creations, design, and engineering as well as Power Plant Inspections.

When my time is not dedicated to the Board of Directors, I like to go out into the desert and shoot off model rockets as my favorite hobby.

Cindy Weingart


My husband, Bud, and I began escaping Eagan, MN winters 5 years ago after we bought my parents park model in Roadhaven Resort. For 36 years I was in the Workers Compensation business as a supervisor overseeing claim investigations, litigation, management of clients, and mediations. I dealt with a wide range of large clients, examiners, injured employees, and attorneys. 

Now you can often find me in the art room oil painting if I am not golfing, walking, or at the pool. In MN I love to garden and see our 1-year-old granddaughter. We very much enjoy the Roadhaven lifestyle of great neighbors and fun activities.

Doug Bryson


I was born and raised in a small town in central Alberta, Canada and presently my wife Carol and I live in Sherwood Park, Alberta. We have been married 51 years, have 4 children, 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandsons. We retired in 2006 and started our Arizona lifestyle that year, moving to Roadhaven in 2013.

Since coming to Roadhaven I have served as a volunteer in hospitality and architecture for 4 years and was appointed to the Board of Directors in 2020, elected in 2021 and currently serve on the Board as Treasurer. I presently serve as Board liaison to the Finance Committee, Rec Council, and the Restaurant Advisory Board. In my spare time I enjoy reading. Roadhaven has become a special place for us, and we hope to enjoy several more winters here.

Claudia Mescher


My summer home is Hibbing, MN where Scott and I have lived for 46 years. We fell in love with Roadhaven in 2017 when we bought and started living each winter. 

I bring to the Board a sense of humor, a love of learning and desire to make Roadhaven a great place to enjoy retirement today and in the future. My educational experience and professional volunteerism have prepared me well for this challenge.

Woody Wood


I live in New York State on the PA boarder during the summer months and have lived in Roadhaven for the winter months for four years.

A strength of mine is communication and building trust within conversations with people. My favorite hobby is playing golf as I have been playing for 45 years now and love it.

Jayne Tiffany (1)


I have been a winter resident of Roadhaven Resort for 5 years, and in the summer I live in Iowa. In my professional career I retired from Green County, Iowa as a US Census Bureau worker.

In addition, I owned my own business and worked for meals on wheels. I am looking to use my public service skills and dedication to the Board of Directors by looking for ways to solve problems as a team, helping others, and advancing my passions through volunteerism.
