The amendment that Wilson Gee and Pulte must have to develop The Lakes is a substantial change to the deed restriction that protects the Ahwatukee CC&Rs and The Lakes golf courses.

The proposed amendment needs to be put into writing and circulated to all ABM (Ahwatukee Board of Management) homeowners for their review and (informed) consent.

Otherwise, homeowners have no way to know what they are consenting to. The Pulte consent form gives Gee and Pulte carte blanche, complete freedom/full discretionary power to rewrite the deed restriction as they see fit with three conditions: 2.5 houses/acre, 38 percent open space, and 75-foot setback, minimum.

How will that be worded, what else might be reworded, how will the CC&Rs remain protected, and what can be done if homeowners object to the amendment as written? There’s no final approval process.

Neighbors: Don’t sign Pulte’s consent form until you see a copy of the revised CC&Rs. Know exactly what you are consenting to BEFORE you sign.
