Tucson Estates, Incorporated

In 1980, Tucson Estates Incorporated (TE, Inc.) purchased the park including all the common areas and the golf course from Mobile Life. They collected dues and maintained all common areas and facilities as Mobile Life had done in the past. The new owners began construction of the RV Park where Western Way RV Park is located today. They also started development of 560 lots to be called The Foothills of Tucson Estates.

In December of 1984 the Tucson Estates, Inc. management issued a report listing the following improvements including: Youth Pool completely re-plastered and decked; remodeled kitchen and added storage in the Recreation area; increased the size of driving range tee box; and purchased new equipment for Bingo, Shuffleboard, card and variety club activities.

Around all this swirl of development, three individuals within the Homeowners Association became concerned how dues were being spent. In November, 1981 these individuals filed a complaint in Arizona Superior Court requesting accountability of the use of maintenance fee monies. A few years after the initial complaint a Summary Judgment required Tucson Estates Inc. to provide financial accountability and $24,000 to Tucson Estate homeowners.

With this new information an amended Complaint was filed asking for additional financial accounting; a ruling that the golf course was for Tucson Estates ONLY; and that homeowners should receive any monies that were above “a fair return on investment” for Tucson Estates, Inc.
