AZ Senate Bill 1722 was signed into law by the governor on April 9, 2021, and went into effect on Sept. 29, 2021. According to the bill, there were amendments made to the posting and removal of political signs in a planned community. The Rules Compliance Committee has looked at these changes and will incorporate them into the Rules Compliance Booklet and ACC Guidelines after acceptance by the HOA Board. The changes that affect our community relate to signs for candidates in primary and general elections. If a candidate does not advance to the general election, his/her sign(s) must be taken down no later than 15 days after the date of the primary election (the bill used to say three days). If the candidate moves on to the general election, her/his sign(s) may remain up until 15 days after the date of the general election (the bill used to say three days).
There has also been a change in the number and size of yard signs, banners, flags, and window displays. These displays may not exceed an aggregate total dimension of 16 square feet, whether they are yard signs, window signs, banners, flags, or a mix of signs.
These additions and changes were brought to the HOA Board of Directors meeting on Oct. 25, 2021, at 10 a.m., in the ballroom, for approval and then were placed into the Rules Compliance Booklet and the ACC Guidelines. These documents are available in the HOA office or online at www.sunbirdhoa.com.
