In an effort to combat the misinformation campaign by the Save the Lakes group, we will be running regular op-eds to set the record straight on our proposed solution for the former Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course. This first op-ed will address open space.

Pulte’s proposed development will include at least 38 percent open space, which is more than double the amount the city of Phoenix requires for projects of this type. This open space includes a minimum landscaped buffer of 75 feet around the perimeter (107 feet average perimeter buffer) to respect the residents who border the Lakes course.

The open space provided in the community will be professionally maintained, which is a quality alternative to the current deserted, unmaintained property.

We are committed to doing everything economically and architecturally feasible to satisfy the neighbors who live by the former golf course by providing open space that would be maintained in a manner above the standard that has declined since 1999 when American Golf purchased the property.

We encourage you to learn more about our proposed solution by visiting
