Hunter: Most people bought in Sun City for lifestyle

It’s simple, if you allow children you also allow school taxes. Most of us are on limited income and if we had another added tax it would make it impossible for many to continue to reside here.

I am compassionate to those who need a family member to care for them. I myself have no children or grandchildren. I have an elderly brother who is in California, not nearby. If you need someone to care for you to assist you with your activities of daily living, hire them. “Home Matters” is an excellent company I highly recommend. They do what you need done. It’s not a cookie cutter and it depends on what you need how much care you get.

A 10-year-old, I am sorry, is not capable of assisting an elderly parent, grandparent and supporting their weight without risking danger to their own being. This does not take a rocket scientist to figure out. We did our time with our children, nieces, nephews. Having them visit for a short period is one thing but we do not need them in our community, which would affect the entire community.

This should not be an issue in limbo! It’s a given and it’s why we chose to live here. Do not make a stupid decision to allow children. Once they are 18 they are capable of assisting, they are capable of supporting a parent’s weight. Anyone younger does not have the strength to do it. I know, having been a CNA.

Make it a daily and Hefty fine for a homeowner who violates this! There are temporary restrictions allowed, which should be grand sufficiency. There may be 75 age restricted communities in Maricopa County, but Sun City was the example and first and it should remain first and only age restricted!
