Pueblo Del Sol Property Owners Association
Welcome to the Pueblo Del Sol Property Owners Association web site. We are a community of 346 properties located in the foothills of the Huachuca Mountains just south of the City of Sierra Vista, Arizona. Since the PDS POA is no longer a covenant-protected association, the owners may now voluntarily contribute to support the financial obligations for retaining ownership and maintenance of the 77 acres of common areas. These remain the property of the PDSPOA Corporation, an active Arizona non-profit corporation. This Corporation is managed by elected Board Directors and Officers who are all volunteers and uncompensated owners in our community. These common areas are critical to maintaining the quality and property values of our community and consequentially our individual properties, as well as the Community aesthetics and quality of life aspects. For several years, about half of the owners have recognized the importance of these common areas to the community as a whole and not just to those properties near to the common areas. They have contributed voluntarily to support the Associaion and we have been able to meet our financial obligations, barely. Given that only about half of the Owners have been willing to contribute at the start of each fiscal year (July 1st), we have had to suggest an annual contribution of $60.00 but we welcome and appreciate any amount lesser or greater. Our budget is focused on grounds maintenance (about $7,000), Liability and Property Insurance ($3,000), Taxes ($150), and minor admin costs ($500) for a total of about $11,000 per year. We ask for much greater support by Owners in our community. It will benefit all of us.
Thank you, Ted Pahle, President, PDSPOA

NOTICE: ALL RESIDENTS ARE INVITED TO REVIEW THE MONTHLY TREASURER REPORTS. THESE GIVE A DETAILED LISTING OF INCOME AND EXPENSES DURING THE FISCAL YEAR (JULY 1, 2021 TO JUNE 30, 2022. IT WILL CLEARLY DOCUMENT HOW YOUR VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS ARE USED TO MEET THE BASIC OPERATING COSTS OF THE PDS POA. WE OPERATE ON A BARE BONES BUDGET TO COVER THE COMMON AREA MAINTENANCE, ITS INSURANCE, AND TAXES. VERY MINOR ADMIN EXPENSES ARE ALSO COVERED. WE URGE ALL RESIDENTS CONSIDER MAKING A VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION TO ENSURE WE HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDS EACH FY. ANY AMOUNT IS WELCOME. AT THE PRESENT TIME WE HAVE RECEIVED FUNDS FROM ABOUT 40% OF THE OWNERS, WHICH IS LESS THAN LAST YEAR. WE ARE SHORT OF A COUPLE OF THOUSAND DOLLARS TO MEET THIS FY COSTS. MAINTAINING THESE COMMON AREAS IS OF VALUE TO EACH AND EVERY OWNER AS THEY ADD SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF OUR COMMUNITY. JUST IMAGINE IF WE HAD TO GIVE UP THESE 77 ACRES TO THE COUNTY OR TO A CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION AND THUS LOSE CONTROL OF WHAT THESE ACRES ARE USED FOR.
NOTICE; The PDS POA Shed on Yaqui at the Fry Fire District Station is no longer in existance. It was sold as the Board of DIrectors agreed unanimously to divest ourselves of the structure (and its costs) as it was no longer needed to administer the PDS POA. Many property lot files were collected by Owners but many are still available if you wish to have them. Just call Ted Pahle at 520 227 4116 to arrange a pickup.
NOTICE: The FRY Fire District, the Department of the Interior, USDA Forest Service, the National Fire Protection Association, and University of Arizona, have provided valuable information about protecting your home from wildfires. We urge you to make your home “defensible” by the fire crews so it is not a dangerous tinder box that threatens lives and your and other’s properties. Please click here to see this information. Also check the national website of FireWise USA that specifically addresses preparations for homes subject to wildfires. (Click here)
