Patrol Report

Thomas Catri

Wow, the year 2019 is nearing the end, and 2020 is just days away. December is always an extremely busy month. With so many activities taking place, those activities are sources of fun and enjoyment, and potential for risk is always present. Always exercise caution and stay vigilant through the holidays.

The busy winter months at SunBird tend to cause an increase in some actions by homeowners and tenants that load up the telephone complaint hotline. Important reminders again that when rules are properly set and followed, they provide a stable environment and human co-existence in a community, resulting in peace and order.

Please remember not to feed any wildlife in SunBird. It is against state law to feed wild animals in Maricopa County. Some wild animals in Arizona not to feed are birds, skunks, coyotes and feral cats. Feeding wildlife is prohibited by Arizona State Law and is not permitted in our community.

The Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs) number 2.11, animals and pets… All pet owners are responsible for confining their pets to their lot to maintain control over the pet’s activities. Maricopa County Rabies and Animal Control states that dogs outside of the residents must be in a suitable enclosure or confined on a leash, no longer than six feet in length.

When parking a recreational vehicle (RVs), please be advised that residents or guests of residents may not live in an RV while parked in the SunBird community. Sleeping, cooking, or other types of activities that are not associated with the preparation of the RV, such as loading, unloading, or cleaning, are not permitted.

With our community experiencing another busy season, we could always use your help. Remember, as a homeowner or tenant, it is your responsibility to let your family and friends know that if they are parked on the street, that we have overnight parking restrictions. Overnight parking restrictions start at midnight and ending at 6:00 a.m. hours, seven days a week. If the Patrol finds a vehicle on the street during those hours without a guest pass or parking permit properly displayed, they may be issued an overnight parking violation citation for doing so.

The Patrol works hard to protect our community resources and property and to also make a vigorous effort to inform all homeowners, tenants, guests, and visitors of the applicable rules, regulations, and restrictions. Please call 480-797-8605 if you ever have a question or need assistance. Christmas wishes for safety and peace for all of you!
