IN THE NEWS
"a group of residents argues Pulte hasn't delivered on promised amenities. They want to see a third recreation center built and 36 to 45 holes of golf, instead of the current 27 holes." (1)

Pulte has proposed changes to the initial plan presented to many residents by Pulte sales staff:
Two Troon-managed golf courses, reduced from 36 holes of golf to 27 holes of golf.
Pulte has not committed to building a third recreation center.
Pulte is planning to build 600 family homes west of the Public Safety building. This will increase traffic through our retirement community and impact the quiet enjoyment we have come to expect.
Future access to amenities.
When SCF is fully built out, the number of homes will be approximately twice the current level. Areas where access will be limited when build out is complete includes but is not limited to:
All areas of the craft center
Access to Golf
55+ communities in the Phoenix area have about 2,500 homes for each golf course. With no plan to add additional holes SCF will a ratio of 4,800 homes per course. (We currently have 27 holes, which is 1.5 courses.)
It is difficult now to get tee times. Imagine what it will be like as we add new residents.
Pulte's plan to put us in the middle.
When Pulte puts 600 new homes and a pool west of the Public Safety Building we will have significant cross-traffic.
Foothills residents in the new area will be crossing through our neighborhoods to reach the school. Residents in the original area will be in our neighborhoods to get to the pool and library.
The cross-traffic created by this decision by Pulte will disrupt our right to the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of our community.
