About two months back, you wrote an article about lack of pools in Surprise. In that article you stated for a community of 1,000 homes the additional cost would be $10 per month.
Where and how did you arrive at $10 per month?
In 2012, when on the HOA board of our community with 960 homes, we ran a cost study to determine the feasibility of adding a community pool.
Ongoing costs included liability insurance, reserve fee requirements, utility (water and electricity) and maintenance.
Our monthly costs were much more than $10 per month, to the point no one in the community wanted a community pool.
Furthermore, monthly costs would have been even higher if we higher a lifeguard.
And on top of that ongoing monthly cost was the costs to build/finance construction of a community pool.
I mention this because your article was laughed at by many of us that remembered the substantial cost increase to our HOA fees if we were to have a community pool.
This pool article has caused many of us to question the validity of articles written by you.
