SCHOA getting ready for fall Sun City events

The Sun City Home Owners Association Board of Directors conducted its last meeting June 26 before taking a two-month break. But that does not mean the agency will be idle during the summer.

SCHOA officials are busy preparing a busy schedule of special events for the fall and winter. In addition, the agency remains open through the summer and continues with its main task of enforcing the community’s covenants, conditions and restrictions, according to Carole Studdard, SCHOA executive director.

SCHOA hosted town hall meeting.

“We have a busy year shaping up already,” she said.

While the board and other committees will not meet during the summer, SCHOA’s CC&R Review Committee will continue to meet 10:30 a.m, the fourth Friday in July and August to continue its work to review the CC&Rs and prepare recommendations for the board to either amend the document or leave it as it is.

“The existing CC&Rs will be enforced while the review is ongoing,” said Jim Hunter, SCHOA board president and CC&R committee chairman.

SCHOA special events will ramp back up beginning in October. Three events are scheduled so far, with more in the planning stages for 2018-19, according to Ms. Studdard.

A town hall meeting is scheduled 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10 at Fairway Recreation Center, 10600 W. Peoria Ave. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is slated as the guest speaker.

That will be followed by SCHOA’s new owner orientation 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15 at Palmbrook Country Club, 9350 W. Greenway Road.

The agency’s annual meeting is scheduled 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15 at Fairway Recreation Center, 10600 W. Peoria Ave. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery is the expected featured speaker.

SCHOA will also conduct an election for new board members in November.

Candidate applications for the SCHOA board remain available. There are three expiring seats, now held by Pam Schwartz, Jim Powell and Steve Puck.

Candidate applications must be turned in to the SCHOA office, 10401 W. Coggins Drive, by Monday, Oct. 1.

To qualify for the SCHOA board, candidates must be a SCHOA member, be available to serve a three-year term, be committed to the SCHOA code of conduct, be available to attend board and committee meetings and events, be available to attend board candidate orientations, be responsible to conduct your own campaign and promotional materials and provide resume, which is to include length of Sun City residency, employment experience, community service experience and reasons why they want to serve on the board.
