Message from the President
Cooler weather will be upon us shortly, with reports of snow and freezing weather hitting areas in Montana, Colorado, and other northern states and Canada. Photos will soon appear showing trees changing colors. Here in Sun Lakes, we are also starting to see some weather changes. Our hope is we will soon see some of our returning homeowners arriving safely.
For those of us who have stayed during the hot summer, we will be glad to see our community golf courses and greenbelts with their winter grass and the nip of cooler mornings. A special thanks to our management team and employees for the great job they do maintaining all of the grounds and amenities year-round.
Our Fitness Center reopened the last week of August. London Brewster, our new Fitness Center manager, is planning a fun schedule of classes and programs for our homeowners. Stop in and see what they have to offer!
The Cottonwood Bar and Grill remodel is “on schedule” to open mid-October. Don Hicks, Steve Nolan, Jim Miller, and Marshall Reichert have done an excellent job keeping everything on schedule and within budget. The Palo Verde restrooms are also being remodeled. The board and management expect our homeowners will be very pleased with the finished projects. Remember, you can see updated photos of both projects on the “Homeowners Only” page of the Cottonwood Palo Verde website.
As many of you are aware, our board-appointed committee meetings have been canceled until after Jan. 1, 2021. This is due to the continuing health concerns by the Arizona State Health Department and Governor Ducey. It is necessary that we limit the exposure to attendees and members of the committees. Our insurance company and legal team recommends our association follow the state’s guidelines to limit any possible liability. Our two planned board meetings each month will continue to be broadcast by live streaming. This can be accessed through the Cottonwood Palo Verde website.
My wife and I have lived in the Cottonwood area since 2000. Upon returning from any trip, it is with great enthusiasm that we drive down EJ Robson Boulevard and see the green grass and lakes. This has always felt to us as “welcome home.” My hope is that all of you feel the same way when you return to our wonderful community.
Linda Caton, Recreation Manager
