Crowell: SCHOA should clamp down on CC&Rs


We moved to Sun City to get away from noisy cars, children running in the streets and noisy backyards.

When children visit their grandparents here, that’s the kind of noise we usually enjoy. But to have to put up with a yard full of noisy children every day and a backyard filled with big plastic toys is just too much.

Our CC&Rs state that the Sun City Home Owners Association is responsible to be sure that property values are maintained, that the community does not decline in its appeal to current homeowners as well as future retirees. We have complained so many times about the ‘new renters on our street who continue to have a yard full of children at all hours. They feed birds, build back yard fires, pile up wood next to the house, drive noisy cars up and down our street, and carry on some kind of activity in their garage all night long.

How many more times do we need to complain?

When I told the property manager I’d almost run over one of the small children in the street at dusk, she snapped back saying, “It would have been your fault you know, you were probably speeding.”

Please, SCHOA, give us some help here. You’re being too easy on the rule breakers and allowing our property values to fall — and more so, to cause us to try to defend you when new, unwitting neighbors move into our beautiful community.

We trusted you to enforce the CC&Rs. Please do so.
