  • Annual Membership Drive: Mary Cary spoke about our annual membership drive and discount card. She asked for input on businesses to approach for the discount card, including representation of businesses in the Waldo Homes boundaries (79th to 85th). Chelly’s, Garza’s Goodies, KC Bier Company, Tropical Snow, and others were mentioned. She suggested an initial targeted email to past members before a mass mailing. The board decided to create a postcard highlighting membership and the upcoming events for 2015. The board agreed to hold dues at $25 per year for now until we can gain greater visibility.

November 8 General Meeting Agenda: Provide more information about the merger and brainstorm on the benefits of membership. Kurtis suggested providing updates on Phase I of the Waldo Tower renovations and the plans for Phase II, which include year-round lighting for the Tower. Kurtis will invite a special speaker. Mary will send a meeting reminder along with a survey regarding our organization’s new name based on the merger with Waldo Homes Association approved by the board earlier in the year. We will ask attendees to opine on possibilities for a new name for the combined Tower Homes Association and Waldo Homes Association:

  • Waldo Tower Neighbors
  • Waldo Tower Neighbors Association
  • Waldo Tower Homes
  • Waldo Tower Homes Association


  • Holiday Decoration Contest: It was suggested that the organization host a Holiday decoration contest. Kurtis has 5 – $10 gift certificates to The Well for a prize. Any neighbor can nominate, but the decorated house must be a member to win. Entries must be in by December 8. Winners will be voted on by the board at the December board meeting.


  • Holmes Rd. Traffic Safety: Kurtis Marinez shared security footage from his home showing a severe auto accident at 75th and Holmes caused by fast speeds and reckless driving.
