Letter on Procedures for Assuring Paint Standards Application

Vince San Angelo asked that the following letter be posted on the website:

November 12, 2020

Dear Residents:

A residence in the HOA was recently sold.  However, upon inspection of the property the board noted that the trim was not in compliance with the HOA specified paint colors.  The Title Company insisted that the owner follow HOA rules.  It was repainted and the sale became final.

However, the owner/seller made a suggestion to the board that was reasonable and constructive.  He did not know his home was painted with the wrong color when he placed his home for sale.  He thought that the board should let the residents know beforehand if their homes are incorrectly painted so that they can make corrections before entering the selling process; and, if they are contemplating having their homes repainted as general maintenance.

Accordingly, the board checked each home in the HOA and identified those with incorrect paint on their trim.  Each owner will be notified by a personal letter from the board.

We also noted that while many homes had their trim painted with the correct color, there were quite a few that badly needed repainting due to weathering, etc.  Please check your homes to see if repainting is due.  Ensure your painter uses the correct paint colors.

To reiterate the HOA policy—Prior to the sale of homes that have their trim incorrectly painted owners will be required to repaint in compliance with the HOA paint colors.  This will be noted on the Title Company information form that is sent to the HOA for completion and could affect the sales process.

The Sunrise Canyon HOA Paint Color Standards can be found on the HOA website.

Thank you,

The Sunrise Canyon Board of Directors

2020 Virtual Annual Meeting/New Budget

Covid-19 pandemic concerns led to the Board not convening an in-person 2020 Annual Meeting. Instead, the Board has issued a document that covers the topics that would have been addressed had the Annual Meeting taken place. This Virtual Annual Meeting document is now available on the Sunrise Canyon HOA Matters page of the Sunrise Canyon website. Also available on that page is a copy of the 2020 Budget Update – Proposed 2021 Budget. Vince San Angelo would have discussed that budget at the traditional Annual Meeting. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact members of the Board: President Allan Wright, Treasurer Vince San Angelo, or Secretary Shelby Rigg. Their email addresses and phone numbers can be found in the HOA Directory.

Information Regarding 2020 Sunrise Canyon HOA Annual Meeting

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors has decided to use electronic procedures to conduct the HOA Annual Meeting. Here is the Board’s letter to the members of the Homeowners Association.

October 1, 2020

Dear Sunrise Canyon Homeowner Association Neighbors:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we will not be having our annual Homeowners Association meeting in November. Instead, we will conduct the meeting in electronic format. We will provide an update from the architectural review committee, the landscaping committee, the pool committee and any old business.  We will also provide the Treasurers Report, the minutes from the last meeting and responses to any questions we receive. This will be sent to you via email at the end of October and posted on the Sunrise Canyon HOA Matters page of our website. After receiving this report, you will be given two weeks to ask any questions and to vote. Once we receive the questions and the votes, we will respond to the questions and notify you of our new Board Member.

In the meantime, if you are interested in serving on the Board (there is one seat up for election for a three-year term), please send your notice of interest to Shelby at shelby.rigg@cox.net by October 15th.

Also, if you have any questions that you would like the Board to address in our annual report, please also send those to Shelby by the 15th.

We are sorry we will not be able to meet in person but think we can accomplish the goal of the annual meeting in this manner.

Hope you all are safe and well.

Allan Wright, President

Vince San Angelo, Treasurer

Shelby Rigg, Secretary

Correcting Mail Delivery Problem

If you find that another resident’s mail is consistently being placed into your mailbox (which might happen when delivery personnel change), the U.S. Postal Service recommends you do the following:

(1) Circle the address and mark it “Incorrectly Delivered”; and

(2) Place that piece of mail into the outgoing mail box.

By doing so, you will inform the Post Office of the need to correct the mistake. Simply placing the misdelivered mail inside the gate of the residence to which it should have been delivered could also cause mail to accumulate at that residence. This would signal that the residence is not occupied, and create the possibility of a security problem.

 

Charlene Pease has Passed Away

Hello All,

This is to let you know that yesterday morning (Thursday, August 6, 2020), Charlene Pease passed away, 6 days short of her 100th birthday.

I think many of you know she was one of the first owners of a Sunrise Canyon townhome.

Her daughter, Bobby, seems to be doing pretty well. She told me a week ago that she thought her mom would go soon. Charlene really wanted to reach her 100th birthday before leaving this earth.  I think she did very well.

Sincerely,

Champa Carr

Javelina Alert

At about 9:30 PM on the evening of Saturday, May 30th, a large pack of about 15 Javelina (with piglets)  was seen in the pool area.  The pack went through the common space next to Nancy Cox’s house, crossed Via Vigna, and into the common space next to Allan Wright’s house.  Residents must be careful, especially if walking a dog in the evening.  Javelina packs, with young ones, can be dangerous if they sense any threats such a dog (even on a leash) or people.

Temporary Suspension of Recycle Pick-Ups

Sunrise Canyon’s disposal and recycle service provider, Right Away Disposal (RAD), was directed by the State of Arizona to suspend recycling pick-ups due to COVID-19.  This was because its recycling process involves manual separation of the items and puts workers at risk.  Accordingly, RAD has to put everything into the landfill. The expectation is that recycle pick-ups will resume in (early) June. So if you can set aside your recycling material until that time, you will still be able to have them recycled, as opposed to having them end up in the landfill.

Sunrise Canyon Spring Clean-Up Bulk Collection Service: Additionally, the annual Sunrise Canyon spring clean-up bulk collection will take place on Monday, June 15, 2020.  Click here to see a flyer describing the service, and providing guidance on how to take advantage of it on June 15th.

Sunrise Canyon Pool Area Reopened in Limited Way

As of today, May 7, 2020, the pool area, including the pool and tennis courts (but NOT the spa), is again open for use by residents/homeowners. Guests are not allowed in the pool area. Social distancing is required, so make sure you maintain at least a 6-foot separation from others using the common area. Additional guidance, if any, will be posted here.

Dangerous Critters Out and About

There was a Saturday article on the Arizona Daily Star website regarding how rattlesnakes are enjoying Tucson’s weather these days. (Click here to read story.) The dangerous critter angle hit a little closer to our Sunrise Canyon homes today. John Patterson found a Gila Monster in his yard. While Gila Monsters don’t move very fast, they are extremely dangerous. John did the right thing. He called Rural Metro to come and take the critter away. You should do the same thing if you see one.
