New SunBird
Post Office Manager

Jan Griffin has been named the new SunBird Post Office Manager as Lynette Martens has recently retired. 

Jan has been a long time SunBird resident and has worked in the SunBird Post Office for 17 years providing excellent customer service.  Congratulations Jan!



SunBird had 8 home sales in June totaling 60 for the first six months of this year.

10 homes are currently in escrow with very few on the market "for sale".

Some Realtors still report waiting lists of prospective buyers for SunBird. 

SunBird is a great place to live!



The ACC Committee has been working diligently on a few new guidelines.  Please note there will be an automatic fine for repeat offenders of homeowners who do not keep their yards free from weeds.  Thank you for your cooperation in keeping SunBird Golf Resort a special place to live.

I Weeds and Unsightly Landscaping

Sunbird home owners are solely responsible to keep their property(ies) free of all dead/dying weeds, plants, trees, bushes and other items including trash/debris determined to be unattractive or a nuisance. Fronts, sides and back yards should always be free of weeds, dead and dying plants, trees or bushes.

Property owners receiving 2 notices of nonconformance within a 12 month period will become a recurrent, noncomplying offender, resulting in an immediate $50.00 fine.

Landscaping including trees, bushes and flowers must not appear neglected or trespass neighboring properties, by either growing over party and private walls or obstructing public traveling throughout the community.


II Surveillance Equipment & Cameras

Installation approval of cameras and surveillance equipment will only be given upon consideration of its effect on neighbor’s right to privacy.  Whenever possible the cameras/surveillance equipment shall be placed in the least intrusive or visible location.  The camera/surveillance equipment must be mounted in a fixed position that views only the homeowner’s property and the camera’s view may not at any time be changed to view neighboring properties or common areas.  Installation will not be permitted if the ACC Committee determines it will cause intrusion on neighboring resident’s privacy.  Applications are to include a drawing displaying the location of the camera, specify the size, shape, angle or view; and include a photograph of the equipment prepared by the manufacturer.

An ACC member may periodically make an unannounced inspection of the camera angles to determine if it intrudes on neighboring resident’s privacy.  If the resident is out of compliance, there will be an automatic fine imposed.


Friday Night Fish Fry

The Friday night Fish Fry has become overwhelmingly popular, having attendance beyond expectations of 330 plus patrons weekly. 

The Horizon Room can seat 165 at a time and the balcony approximately another 40.  The weekly attendance has been exceeding our capacity causing a wait for seating at times. 

The kitchen only has two deep fryers and cannot accommodate any additional equipment due to limited space.  The Fish Fry starts at 3:00 p.m. serving all who arrive before 6:00 p.m. 

A couple of changes have been made to help improve service time.  Larger portions of fish are served since it's "all you can eat", reducing the number of patrons asking for second servings.  Delivering the billing ticket closer to the time of food service will also decrease the time for check out. 

Monsoon 2017

Monsoon storms have reached SunBird.  The storms are hitting SunBird later in the evenings bringing strong winds, dust, lightning and thunder followed by little rain.  So far, we have had some trees blow over and dust and debris left all over.  Fortunately, no serious damage reported in SunBird.

Residents who have left for for the summer months should have someone check on there home especially after monsoon storms to check for any damage or repairs necessary.

Golf Course Lakes

This year, many lakes in Arizona and water systems have been affected by "Golden Algae".  Arizona Game and Fish Department has requested fishing tournaments be suspended in many of the Salt River Lakes due to this problem.  Golden Algae is deadly to aquatic species and fish will avoid it whenever possible.  This algae found its way into the lakes of the SunBird Golf Course. 

Early this summer, many of the fish in these lakes did not survive.  The SunBird Golf Club has hired a professional lake water management company who has been testing and treating these lakes to address this matter.  The lakes will be restocked with 566 fish for both algae control and sport fishing (166-White Amur, 200-Redear Sunfish and 200-Blue Gill). 

The SunBird Golf Club is welcoming any contributions to assist with the expense of $775 to replenish the lake around the clubhouse with 430 of these fish.  The remaining 136 fish will be restocked in other lakes around the golf course.  If you would like to make a donation, please mail or drop off a check at the pro shop with "fish" written on the memo.  For more information, please contact the Pro Shop at (480) 883-0820.
