The Native Area Maintenance began on Monday, June 1st. We’ve divided the property into 3 sections, or phases, that are numbered in the order which we will proceed.







 








We have completed mowing in the following neighborhoods:
50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59
















We will proceed to:
47, 62, 46, 44, 42, 43, 40, 41

We are far enough ahead with Mowing Team that we will be starting the Line Trimming Team on Friday June 12th. They will follow the same path as the mowers, and we expect them to be close to caught up by the end of the day.

















Mowing the native areas is done to reduce the risk of wild fire spreading into the neighborhoods. Because of our limited time to complete the native area mowing, we cannot always wait until all the wildflowers have stopped blooming. For this reason we rotate where we start our mowing each year to insure the best chances for wild flower proliferation throughout the campus.

140806 Eblast L3 Mowing

I want to thank the community for their patience and understanding with this new endeavor. As we expected there were some challenges that accompanied bringing the Level 3 maintenance program in house, what we didn’t expect was the belated seeding of the wildflowers which prevented an earlier start date. I also want thank everyone for all the compliments and criticisms we have received so far. They have all been very helpful in creating an efficient and quality driven process.

The progress map is an aerial image of the Sun City campus taken from Google Earth, and colored in to show the extent of the boundaries of the property. The black or shadowed area is what has been completed. The boundaries of the phases were determined by using the most prevalent land marks in the community: Del Webb Boulevard, Sun City Boulevard, and the Berry Creek water way. Here is a more detailed breakdown of the Phase to Neighborhood relationship:

Phase 1 Neighborhoods: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 13 27 38   COMPLETED
Phase 2 Neighborhoods: 8 9 10 11 12 35 36 37
Phase 3 Neighborhoods: 14 15 16 22 23 24 25 26 28 30 31 32 33 34
Phase 4 Neighborhoods: 17 18 19 20 21 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 62
