What an insult! I received in the mail a glossy, full-color invitation from Pulte Homes to change our CC&R’s. Not once in the entire circular did Pulte fully acknowledge that there is a choice to be made. Not once did Pulte even attempt to rebut any of the substantial arguments and objections which have been raised, such as loss of open space, increased burdens on traffic, schools and other infrastructure, or expectations of the neighboring homeowners that their houses would border a golf course, just like when they bought them.
Morgan Nelson of Ahwatukee has earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. Nelson was among approximately 2,700 undergraduate and graduate students who received degrees during Georgia Tech’s 247th commencement exercises.
I received the form to sign if I approve of Pulte’s plan for building on the land that had been reserved for a golf course and that now sits vacant.

I actually signed the form, but I’m not mailing it until I receive an answer “in writing” to a very important question.

To members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, temples are the most sacred spaces on earth, where we seek to feel close to God, to make promises to follow His Son, Jesus Christ, and where we learn about life’s purpose and our part in God’s plan. What a privilege it has been for us during these past few weeks to welcome our friends and neighbors to the temple. I have been touched by the response of so many in our community who have come — sometimes repeatedly — to see and understand why temples are so important to our faith.
