I suspect the polls were tampered with. Everyone in Sun City, I have talked to is against the Menifee incorporation. Look at the boundry lines and see the boundries are centered around the high density housing tracts for a reason Revenue. How come the boundry did not go past Briggs road and included heritage ranch? There is no money out there!
Seriously, what is the scoop on Sun City California, and how does it compare to Sun City Arizona? Prices seem reasonable, but some people say that pollution and crime are a factor. What about earthquakes?

I lived in Sun City since 1990 and there really wasn't and still isn't that much crime to begin with here. Most of my life I lived in the OC then when I moved to Sun City after I got married I saw a huge difference in pollution & crime. To this day it still seems a far better place then the OC.

What are the total HOA fees to live in the Core? Is there just one HOA or are there more - some neighborhoods have their own HOA and then a master HOA on top of that. I can't seem to get the scoop on what the total HOA fees are for Sun City, CA. Thank you.

I live in Rancho La Vita close to the Hospital and it is a HOA community. WE pay, I believe,$45.00. MY husband handles the payment so I'm not quite sure but I think that most HOA's around here are no higher then $50 a month but it's best to get more info on that.

That is a VERY reasonable HOA if that is the case, especially considering the clubhouse and such. My mother n law moved out here from Massachusetts last month and we're looking into an active 55+ community for her. She's in great health and wants to move to a place where she can meet people in her same stage in life, where she can do as much or as little as she'd like. But of course finances are a major constraint limiting the options, but it looks like in Sun City she can get a small 2bdrm house for under 100k. She's also considering some 55+ mobile home communities about 12 miles inland Oceanside, however they don't seem very active and residents appear to be more like 75+ so I'm very concerned she won't be as happy there.

You heard right! I reired and moved to Sun City, CA almost four years ago and it was the best decision I could have made. The neighbors are friendly, we get together often for dinners and cards. If you belong to the core association there is a minimal year fee, less than $20 per month, that includes the use of community facilities; two swimming pools, spa, workout room, plays, clubs, tour groups, activities to suit every interest. The neighborhoods are clean and homes are well-kept. I absolutely love it here.
Peggy, I have read some of your posts; I was wondering if you can tell me a little bit about the medical faculities in the area? We will be moving around the middle of November to Sun City, we are from New Mexico and MUST change our medicare subliment plan..they are all pretty much alike. What I need is a plan that has doctors that practice in the hospitals that are local, and when sending you off to get lab work, xrays, cardiac test, etc. that you go to facilities IN the local area...not to San Diego, or LA.

Like I said you seem to know quite a bit about the area, and your readers mostly have thoughtful responses..so here's hoping you or someone you know can offer suggestions that could help...thanks ahead of time.

I can't comment on liveability in Sun City. I have the misfortune to be stuck in the neighboring city of Hemet. Have nothing positive to say about Hemet whatsoever. City officials have run the quality of life into the ground. All I can suggest to those who seek to move to Sun City is to investigate the power structure closely and to insure that retirement community doesn't go down a hole like Hemet.

I am seeing fewer panhandlers in the area than a year ago. I for one, when approached by one of these beggars take out my cellphone and tell them if they do not leave I am calling the police. If people would stop giving them money they will leave. We have to have zero tolerance for them. There was a group of them hanging out in the landscaping near the Mexican Restaurant by Vons. Every time I saw them out there I would call the police. They are now gone. I haven't seen them for quite a while.

thinking of buying a house for my Mom on Pebble Beach near all the shopping. Can't seem to find the community pool. Any thoughts? So far only using the Internet and Google Earth. She has been to Sun City and loves it. Thanks

Rancho LA Vita HOA sucks! My husband has been trying to get approval to do some changes to our front yard but they keep giving him a hard time!! Aside from the OUTRAGES bill they keep sending us in regards to the grass not being "green enough", they turn us down when we purposed an idea to improve the yard! Ridiculous!! 8-I =;

I recently moved here from ventura CA. I'm 55 and my partner is 20 yr my junior. I don't know if that's the reason one of my new neighbors felt the need to call the sheriff on me last Saturday afternoon. I've since heard that this same neighbor has inflicted his boredom onto many of the neighbors living on camden way. But he usually just reports them to the HOA & a notice is sent. I'm the only one I know so far who had the cops called on them about my clothes line being attached to this neighbors fence post and an easement which is on my property. Hardly a police matter. My dryer went out right after moving in. I lugged wet clothes to the laundry mat but then decided to go solar since there's almost always sun shining during the day. I planned on putting up a nice clothes line but my plumbing backed up and then a pipe broke and on and on it went. I'm on a fixed income. I've had my solar dryer up for a month and no problems. My other neighbor on the other side of my place is wonderful. Him and his lovely wife moved into their house a month before I did mine. I guess this bad neighbor reported him for leaving his golf cart out on driveway one night. He was having his garage redone and he couldn't park anything in his garage. I mean really how petty does someone need to be? When I moved in I kept hearing a rooster a few houses away but I actually liked hearing that rooster. I guess this bad neighbor reported that too and gone is the rooster.
I moved here to be around great neighbors and to look after one another. I like that in a neighborhood. I don't like unfriendly neighbors. We all come from different places, we all have different stories of where we lived and what we did in our younger days. We all have differnt ideas maybe on some things but that just makes things more interesting. But how does one take getting the cops called on them. I guess the bad neighbor put a note on my clothes line prior to calling cops. I didn't see this note until I moved my clothes line after the very nice cop left. This officer had important things to he should have been doing. I should have had him arrest bad neighbor for trespassing. But I'm a nice person just wanting to blend in, make new friends hete and add something of myself to my community. I'm an artist, and excellent caregiver. I'm not unapproachable. I'm friendly and accommodating. Bad neighbor is a coward. I liked him even until he pulled that stunt with me. Anyone else been a victim of this bad neighbor? Or maybe you have your own bad neighbor on your street? How can I deal with this guy and have there be peace and tranquility in my space? Please let me know what you think.
