From the President

Sun City Age Overlay

It has been brought to the attention of the SCHOA Board there is an increasing concern regarding individuals currently living in Sun City who violate the CC&Rs, specifically relating to Housing for Older Persons; Age Restriction.  This violation can have serious consequences to Sun City residents as a whole.  It is the responsibility of the Sun City Home Owners Association to protect the value of the CC&Rs as well as enforcing them in order to maintain property values and to keep real estate taxes affordable.

 The Age-Overly CC&R is as follows:

  • The Property is intended to constitute housing intended and operated for occupancy by at least one person fifty-five (55) years of age or older per unit under the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988, U.S.C. § 3600, et seq., and the Arizona Fair Housing Act, A.R.S. § 44-1491, et seq., (collectively, the “Fair Housing Acts”).
  • Except as provided below, at least one occupant of each residential unit must be 55 years of age or older, and no person under nineteen (19) years of age shall occupy or reside in a residential unit for more than ninety (90 days in any twelve (12) month period.
    1. The Association may grant variances from the above restrictions, unless the granting of a variance would result in less than eighty percent (80%) of the residential units being occupied by one person fifty-five (55) years of age or older or would otherwise jeopardize the Property’s status as housing for older persons under the Fair Housing Acts. Any request for a variance submitted to the Association pursuant to the subsection shall set forth the names and ages of all proposed residents of the residential unit the reason for the request and such other information as the Association may reasonably require.
    2. The Board shall adopt, publish and enforce such policies and procedures and rules and regulations as are deemed necessary by the Board in order to demonstrate an intent to provide housing for occupancy by at least one person fifty-five (55) years of age or older per unit and to maintain the status of the Property as housing for older persons under the Fair Housing Acts. Such policies and procedures shall provide for verification of the age of the residents by reliable surveys and affidavits, and each resident, if requested to do so by the Association, shall furnish the Association with the names and ages of all occupants of the residential unit and such affidavits and other documents as the Association may request to verify the ages of such occupants.

Due to continuing reports and concerns, Sun City citizens are asked to report any under-age individuals who may be living in Sun City in violation of the guidelines. This CC&R is the most important for SCHOA to manage and to enforce. Residents are asked to lend their assistance. The Sun City Home Owners Association is committed to enforcing the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. Sun City has 27,500 residences………….all residents are asked to share any information when there may be an infraction of the CC&Rs. SCHOA’s staff is committed to working diligently; however, it is small and your assistance is appreciated. When citizens make a report to SCHOA, it is important to provide your name and contact information; however, this is CONFIDENTIAL and would never be disclosed.

TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE

At the January SCHOA Transportation Committee Meeting officials from MCDOT presented their plans for safety improvements at the intersections of 99th & Cameo and 99th & Union Hills. These intersections presented unique challenges due to the open drainage canal down the middle of 99th Avenue. These improvements should occur in the 2015-16 time frame.

Sgt. White of MCSO advised that their department in cooperation with the Sun City Posse are going to put on a golf cart safety drive which will involve the installation of seat belts. One of the leading causes of injury in golf cart mishaps is the failure to have or use seat belts.

A group of residents from Hutton Drive were present to voice their concerns regarding vehicles speeding down their street. They requested MCDOT install a stop sign on Hutton somewhere between Del Webb & Boswell. They feel this would slow down traffic. MCDOT stated they will take this request under advisement.

The next Transportation Committee will be meeting Wednesday, February 25 at 10:00 a. m. This meeting is open to the Community.

Upcoming Events

  • The Wisconsin club was formed this past year for the purpose of organizing Wisconsin Residents and friends in the Sun City area. Our purpose is social.  Our main event is the Wisconsin Day Picnic on Thursday March 5th, 2015. This event is held at the Sun Bowl in Sun City, from 10:00AM until 3:00PM. We plan to hold the Event each year.

    Wisconsin people have organized the picnic since the mid 70’s but had run its course and was not held for a few years.

    Organizers thought the event should be brought back. A nucleus of people was formed to kick start the event again.  We found none of the equipment was around that was used for the past events and no money was avalable for the operational expense needed to host such a large endeavor. 1200 to 1500 people usually attend the Picnic.

    The small group contributed the necessary funds to purchase new equipment, volunteers also found some of the past items used to serve that many people.  The Sun City Rec Center workers were also very helpful and that is what triggered the group of volunteers to form a club and become the Wisconsin Event Club of Sun City.

    The officers for the club are President Gari Spagnoletti, Vice President Judi Spagnoletti, Secretary Daryl Lund, Treasure Sue Swiatowy and James Mrdutt at large member.

    Many volunteers also make up the group and along with many sponsors. Everyone looks forward to the Wisconsin Day Picnic.  See you there!
