Buyers were told that CC&R’s would protect their property values and assure their purchase would be a good investment. The CC&R’s adopted by Del Webb were modified boiler plate restrictions written for condominiums built in the “60’s without land. Landscaping standards then were “minimum maintenance”. Thus most of the 4,762 homes were landscaped with rocks, green painted perma rock, or any other horrible substance that could be glued or painted in front and back of the Core homes that could substitute a nice cool green lawn. In those days they traded beauty for no maintenance. Who was around to challenge the reality of the CC&R’s or that ugly landscaping was better than unwanted maintenance as long as buyers bought into the Core. These were the ideas of 46 years ago which are still accepted as Gospel in the Core today.
SCCA continue to enforce CC&R’s. It concerned itself less with titleholders’ rights and more with absolute control of titleholders. It was so impressed with itself it posted signs all over Sun City saying “We enforce CC&R’s here.” Now, SCCA Board which is more interested in personal power than the highest and best interest of the residents of Sun City Core, wants to persist in keeping Sun City an illegal 55+ community, continue harassing people with obsolete CC&R’s, prevent the area from being upgraded and updated by permitting families to move into Sun city.
