MARCH 2015

Dear Tenants,                                                 


On your March 1, 2015 Rent Statement, you will see additional charges listed for “Elect REST Chg” or Renewable Energy Standard and Tariff Surcharge.  As you are aware, Tucson Electric has many different rates that are listed individually on the Tucson Electric Statement of Charges, which are displayed on the bulletin board at the Large Clubhouse and listed individually on your Rent Statement.  While we were researching these different rates, we found the Renewable Energy Standard and Tariff Surcharge “REST” was first introduced on our Master Meter Invoice on June 1, 2008.  The REST charge is based on the total monthly electric KWH you use or a maximum monthly charge of $3.83 per month in “2014”.  Your March 1, 2015 Rent Statement lists the REST charges that were effective for the meter read periods of 12/31/13 through 7/30/14.  These REST charges should have been listed on your March 1, 2014 through September 1, 2014 Rent Statements.  REST was listed for the first time on your October 1, 2014 Rent Statement for the meter read period of 7/30/14 to 8/28/14.  If you have any questions concerning REST, please feel free to contact me from the Park Office.


Ron Johnson from Space #144, will be presenting a new Neighborhood Watch Program at the Large Clubhouse Auditorium on Thursday, March 5th, at 4:00 p.m.  The Neighborhood Watch Program will be set up by Desert Pueblo tenants and open to all Desert Pueblo tenants.  Ron hopes to see all of you at the Large Clubhouse Auditorium.


We currently have a part time Security position available.  If you’re interested, please contact our Chief of Security, Judy Johnson, Tuesday through Friday, 6 AM to 3 PM, at the guard house.


The small pool will open on March 15th.  The Large and Small Pool hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., March 15th to November 1st. 


I want to thank all the tenants who are maintaining their yards, free of weeds and clutter.  It has come to my attention that some tenant’s yards are accumulating clutter and items are being left outside.  This month, yards will be closely inspected for clutter and notices will be given.  The Park's Rules and Regulations state “7.  LOT USAGE:...Patio furniture and barbecue equipment on the deck and one storage shed on the carport side are the only items permitted outside of mobile home.”


PLEASE do not overfill the dumpster when throwing away your plant trimmings.  Saguaro Environmental will not empty the dumpster if it is overflowing.  This is because the debris will fall out of the dumpster when Saguaro is lifting it up to dump into their truck.  If the dumpster is overflowing, please wait until it has been emptied before you dump your plant trimmings. 


The staff is having problems with vehicles parking in the streets and on empty lots.  Please be advised, the Park’s Rules and Regulations state “8. VEHICLES:…No parking in the streets.  No vehicle of any kind (golf cart, car, van, pickup, motor home, etc.) can be parked in the yards on the rocks.  All vehicles must be parked in the driveways.  Management will provide a limited area for parking travel trailers, campers, trucks and excess cars etc., with a separate charge made for such parking.”  The streets are not wide enough for two cars to pass if a car is parked on both sides of the street.  Please advise the Park Office if you are parking in the street due to a delivery, loading or unloading, or if a vendor is working on your mobile home.  Please don't park your own vehicle or allow your guests or care givers to park in the street, in your rocks, on an empty lot, in your neighbor’s driveway who has left on vacation or in the driveway of a home that’s for sale.  Please have your guests, caregivers and/or vendors park in your driveway.  If there isn’t room in your driveway, have them park their vehicles in the parking lot at the large or small clubhouse.  You can then give them a ride to your mobile home.


Please be advised that semi-tractor/trailers, large trucks and trailers of any type, and mobile home movers will not be allowed on the premises without pre-approved Certificates of Insurance and specific Endorsements on file.  Before scheduling a large truck and trailer to make a delivery or pick up at your mobile home, please come to the Park Office and request a copy of our Insurance Requirements.


Desert Pueblo’s speed limit is still 15 MPH throughout the Park.  Please remind your family, guests, and/or vendors that our speed limit is always 15 MPH.
