Landscaping Volunteers Wanted on Monday Mornings (March 13th)

Clair Connolly and the other Landscape Committee members are again looking for volunteers to help with some landscaping projects this coming Monday morning, March 13th.  The group will be placing rock and raking, so please wear gloves.  The meeting will be at the entrance off of Rosmarino.  Because temperatures are rising, the starting time will be 7:00 a.m.  Scheduled hours are from 7 to 10, but if you would want to stay later, that would be great.  Water bottles and snacks will be provided.

HOA Board Meeting Scheduled for Saturday, March 18, 2023

All members of the Sunrise Canyon HOA are invited to an HOA Board meeting on Saturday, March 18, 2023. The meeting, scheduled for 4:00 p.m. at the pool deck, will focus largely on financial matters. An agenda for that meeting is available on the HOA Matters page of our website. As additional information is made available for the meeting (possibly including a revised agenda), that material will be made available on that HOA Matters page.

Bulk Pick-Up Day Scheduled – Friday, March 3, 2023

We have arranged a bulk pick-up day for all residents of the Sunrise Canyon community. For more information, please open the Waste Connections of Arizona (WCofAZ) Spring Bulk Service flyer by CLICKING HERE.

The flyer describes how and when to set out the material, and how much and what kind of material can be set out to be picked up. Please follow the guidance provided in the WCofAZ flyer.

While we have arranged for the service to be available to the Sunrise Canyon community on Friday, March 3rd, please note that in order for material in front of your residence to be picked up, you must call WCofAZ at 520-881-4227, no later than noon, Thursday, March 2nd, the day before the pick-up service is provided.  When you call, they will probably ask for the name on the WCofAZ service contract (Sunrise Canyon Foothills) and what items you will be placing in front or your townhome to be picked up. 

NOTE: This WCofAZ service is intended for debris and items that are no longer useful. If you have items that can be further used, there are other services that you could use to donate those items. One such service is HabiStore, which is the Habitat for Humanity’s retail outlet in Tucson.  Here is a link to the HabiStore website that describes how to donate items, including scheduling a pick-up.

Sunrise Canyon Pickleball

Pickleball is starting to gain real enthusiasm at Sunrise Canyon. Two pickleball courts have now been “lined-off” in the tennis/pickleball court area and there are 2 portable pickleball nets available. Gloria San Angelo has been actively promoting pickleball play and her efforts have been paying off.  Please give it a try, if you haven’t already.  For more information on pickleball, and your opportunities to join other residents in playing the game, go to the Sunrise Canyon Community Information page of our website, and click on Sunrise Canyon Pickleball Information.

Pool Maintenance and HOA Fees Payment Due

HOA President Allan Wright reports that, beginning July 1st, Gila Pool Service LLC will be doing our pool maintenance. This is not a big company, but its owner has 26 years of experience. He was very prompt to come out and inspect our pool. Allan liked his suggestions. Allan also reports that he has ordered 2 new chaise lounges.

Remember, your semi-annual HOA fees payment is due by July 1, 2022. The payment due amount is $750. A reminder of when the semi-annual payments are due, the amount of the payment, and the address to which the payments should be sent can always be found on the Sunrise Canyon HOA Matters page of our website.
