The challenge for everyone moving to Sun City is; they know nothing about our history, we succeeded when we shouldn’t have. Over the years, a handful of folks became “historians” of sorts and have tried to preserve the how and the why it overcame all odds. That’s why my recent series on Del Webb’s Sun City...The Nation That Changed The Country was so much fun to write (and hopefully read). It was a Reader’s Digest version of Del’s life and the company that built this awesome place we live; Sun City Arizona. While it is easy to watch events unfold, the simple reality is it wasn’t an accident. Building Sun City was an exercise in patience and diligence. Steps and missteps were a constant, but the eye was always on building a sustainable community where those living here took ownership. Alas, we have moved far afield and that is where this thread will explore how that happened and what we need to to get back on track. Should be interesting.
