To encourage courteous interactions at all facilities, the Recreation Centers of Sun City West is launching a “Be Kind” campaign in October.
Starting the second week of the month, members and guests will see banners at facilities reminding everyone to simply “Be Kind.” For those who want to share the message, free pin-on buttons will be available at the check-in counters at recreation centers, golf courses, the R.H. Johnson Library, and sports pavilion.
“The campaign comes at the start of our busy season in an attempt to head off the increasing number of negative encounters that have been reported at our facilities,” a Recreation Centers of Sun City West press release states. “Residents and guests are reminded that aggressive language or behavior directed at staff (especially front-line employees) or other members and guests is prohibited by Policy L01.”
The policy in part states that all parties involved in any physical altercation or any other inappropriate or unsafe conduct on association property may lose their privileges to use certain facilities and/or suffer other penalties. Such behavior includes but is not limited to sexual harassment or abuse, disruptive actions or gestures, or unsafe or threatening action, use of inappropriate language, interfering with the enjoyment and reasonable use of facilities by others, and more.
Members who have an issue or concern with an association policy, the staff’s enforcement of that policy, or another non-emergency issue, may address those concerns with the facility manager or fill out a member comment form, which are available at all facilities and online.
