Witt: Do house murals violate the rules?

Posted 3/25/21

I just read the article (“Resident hopes to share home murals,” Sun City West Independent, March 10, 2021) and would like clarification of C&R rules for Sun City West if displaying artwork on your house is permitted.

Witt: Do house murals violate the rules?

Posted

I just read the article (“Resident hopes to share home murals,” Sun City West Independent, March 10, 2021) and would like clarification of C&R rules for Sun City West if displaying artwork on your house is permitted.

We just moved to Sun City West and love it here. We like that there is structure in this community. We live in an additional HOA within Sun City West where we have to submit authorization to do anything on the outside of our home. Our HOA is very protective of upholding a standard of the appearance of our community.

I do not think our house, which we share with our neighbors, should be the place to display artwork. I am concerned that one person’s art is not another’s personal taste or preference. Allowing one to display their art can or would allow another to display their personal taste of art. This could turn into a problem in the future.

I think we have venues within our community to share all artwork appropriately. I also think a person’s status should not be in the equation in consideration. This article informed us of Ms. Martin’s many accomplishments in the community and although very commendable, I do not think it has anything to do with allowing Artwork on the side of a house.
