MANAGER'S MESSAGE
Sign Policy

On June 1, a new Sign Policy went in to effect. There have been infractions from realtors hosting open houses that may be unaware of the policy. If you have your home on the market, please notify your realtor of the Sign Policy.

Also, if you are having a yard/garage sale or hosting an event at your home that requires directional signage, please review the policy.

Grounds Service staff will be removing signage that violates the policy.
GOOD NEIGHBORS
Barking dogs

Be considerate
Having a pet is a personal choice, but when barking becomes a nuisance it can involve a lot of other people. Be a considerate pet owner and everyone will be happy, including your pet!

The neighbor's dog is barking all the time. Can something be done about the constant noise?
The first step should always be to contact your neighbor and let them know their dog is barking. If that does not work:

Report it to the Gilbert PD
Yes, barking dogs are addressed by the Gilbert Police Department and the Code Compliance Department on a complaint basis, the Municipal Code section about barking dogs reads as follows:
"It is unlawful to keep or harbor any dog which by frequent, habitual or continued barking, yelping or howling shall cause an annoyance or inconvenience to a neighbor or to people passing to and from upon the public streets or sidewalks. No summons and complaint shall be issued nor shall there a conviction for violation of this subsection unless there are at least two complaining witnesses from separate households who shall have signed such complaint and shall have testified at trial".  See Municipal Code Section 6.2

File a Complaint Form with the Association
The Association can begin the violation process on your behalf when you complete and submit the PRCA Complaint Form. Please note that per Arizona law (A.R.S. 33-1242 and A.R.S. 33-1803) any complaint lodged with the Association will NOT remain anonymous. Should the party accused of the violation request the name of the person who complained, the Association is required to it to them.
