Beware: Plant Thieves in Fairfield Neighborhood

Claire Connolly, Chairman of the Sunrise Canyon Landscape Committee, feels it important that all Sunrise Canyon residents are aware of the following:

There is a ring of people that are hitting neighborhoods in the Fairfield and surrounding areas and digging up cactus and stealing them.  They have already stolen thousands of dollars worth of cacti from other neighborhoods. 

If you see any suspicious activity, please call 911 and notify them. 

DO NOT confront these individuals yourself. The police consider them armed and dangerous. 

Thank you,

Sunrise Canyon Landscape Committee

New Sunrise Canyon Architecture Design Reference Document

​May 17, 2023

Dear Sunrise Canyon Homeowner,

The ​Sunrise Canyon HOA ​Architectur​al Committee determined that the Sunrise Canyon community needed more comprehensive and detailed standards for homeowners to refer to for S​unrise Canyon architecture guidelines and regulations. Therefore, we created a new Architecture Design Reference to replace the earlier Rules and Regulations on ​our website. Hopefully this document will help clarify any questions you may have regarding standards throughout our Sunrise Canyon community. The ​goals of the ​Architectur​al Committees and ​the HOA are to retain consistency throughout the S​unrise Canyon neighborhood, preserve the quality of our houses, and enhance property values, ​thus maintaining an outstanding community where our homes are a sound investment. These guidelines are consistent​ with​ the standards originally established by the Fairfield developer.

You will find this new document, titled ​”​Sunrise Canyon ​Architecture Design Reference​”​​”​ on the ​Architecture and Architectural Committee page of the ​Sunrise Canyon website, along with a separate document ​titled “Sunrise Canyon Approved Exterior Paint Color​s”. Please read this prior to the HOA​ meeting this Sunday, ​May 21st, at 4​ ​p​.​m.

Respectfully submitted,​​

The SC Architecture Committee
​     ​Gail Seale, Chair
