From the General Manager – October 2016

It’s been a great summer!

Please check out all the great issues of the View you might have missed during the summer on our website,

I’d like to give a big thank you to Gus Ramirez, our Communications Manager, for his diligent work on all these issues of the View, he is seldom seen because we keep him chained to his desk, but without him I would be lost, especially his great work on our routine e-blasts and internal marketing materials.

Yard of the Quarter

I am pleased to announce a new Yard of the Quarter Contest, where your front yard could win you a $100 gift certificate to Shadows Restaurant!

In an effort to recognize homeowners who keep their yards looking beautiful, which enhances our community, our Landscape and Design Review Committee’s will be nominating front yards that catch their eye. There will be six yards nominated each quarter, and they will be pictured in the View and on the Association website.

The schedule is as follows:

  • January – nominees pictured
  • March – winner pictured
  • April – nominees pictured
  • June – winner pictured
  • July – nominees pictured
  • September – winner pictured
  • October – nominees pictured
  • December – winner pictured

The first place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Shadows; Second place will receive a $50 gift certificate to Shadows and third place will receive a $25 gift certificate to Shadows.

Our first nominees will not be pictured until the November edition of the View.

There is no limit to the number of times a yard can be nominated, but a yard can only win once per year. Once our Committees have selected the six beautiful yards each quarter you will have an opportunity to vote for your favorite each quarter through our website, To be eligible to be nominated, the owner must agree to have a picture of their yard shown in the View and on the Association website.

Good luck to all the first nominees, and thank you for helping to keep Sun City Shadow Hills beautiful!
