In another thread i posted today regarding the June Board meeting i talked about my comments. My first was about the reverse mortgage problem and HUD,. The second was about Sun City West's Long Range Plan compared to ours. One of the long range planning committee members was there and stopped to talk to me about my comments. It started off rocky, but by the end of the conversation i think we were better understanding one another. I emailed her a link with the Sun City West 90 plus page 5 year plan. Best of all, emily suggested i should post it for all here to see. Duh, why didn't i think of that? For comparative purposes, i will post the links for Sun City West and the link for the Sun City long range planning budget.

And that was my point, you can't run a community effectively by simply throwing stuff against the wall you want done.

I won't belabor it, look for yourself and see which makes more sense: Sun City West 5 Year Plan. Sun City long range plan budget.
