At times I feel the Letters To The Editor must be written by residents who do nothing all day.
1. The Preservation fee is the only reason the Recreation Centers of Sun City can build new buildings and updated and repair existing facilities. Del Webb’s idea was to have a restricted 55 active community that is self supporting.
2. Residents wanting partial reimbursement back because areas have been shut down — that’s crazy. If the RSCS would have checked their names in the system their prior COVID usage could have been high or low. Our household usage is high, we’re involved in a lot of activities so really missed them, but we’re grateful the pools were open. Did you ask your favorite restaurant or bars to issues you a credit for missed meals and drinking?
3. I see low-income residents, who can have assistance with utilities, care maintenance, freeze the taxes are now going to have the opportunity to get their homes painted. We personally have known and talked to a couple since moving here in 2011 who have told us how to work the system. “It doesn’t matter how much money you have,” what matters is how much you draw, which allows you to qualify for lots of benefits.
4. With the way the state of the country is today, no one is looking out for each other; the future of our children and grandchildren is bleak. There may be no Medicare, Social Security. Companies today offer no retirement plans and if they do offer a 401K, many families raising children are on tight budgets.
5. Sun city has trains, cars racing up 99th Avenue, Bell Road and Grand Avenue. There is a noticeable increase in traffic through our streets from surrounding communities, I don’t see a solution to that.
Our family is extremely happy here, the recreation centers are awesome, we love Bell pool area, it’s like sitting in a resort area. Reading all the negative comments in this paper tells me the unhappy people have opinions outside of Sun City, their paradise is waiting for them.
