Does anyone know of any 55+ communities in Arizona where you can have 5' or higher fences for dogs?

But I can answer you. I live in a 55+ so I don't have to be bothered with your little angelic special snowflakes. Even some 55+ have entirely too lax bylaws allowing the residents to babysit their family members all week long, filling up the pool etc.

WHY would you claim people should go to a Senior Citizen's org when they have the COMMON VALUES and FRIENDSHIPS right in their own community. That's ridiculous. My HOA has so many activities and events I can't even keep track of them.

The point of an HOA is to share neighborhood common VALUES.

Do you think they sit around drooling all day long staring out the window in groups? PROTIP: They don't. And I haven't even mentioned boating, golf and tennis.

One constant thing I notice is the hostility towards HOAs especially 55+. Especially by people who WANT TO LIVE THERE but without any bylaws.

My downstairs 85 year old neighbor took care of his unwell wife for YEARS, walks to the pool every single morning for aerobics without fail and operates as the on site person for some snowbirds.

The fact you think that 55+ is interchangeable with ASSISTED LIVING just tells me you aren't familiar with either one. And insulting.

I own a dog walking/pet sitting business and GUARANTEE YOU I'm way way way way more physically active than you could possibly be. IE Having 24 dog walking jobs in one day, and several thousand jobs per year.
I applaud and encourage likeminded people to see out 55+ communities, rather than try and break federal law by discriminating against families in non-55+ communities.

Some homeowners in our community have fences, only chain link, though, and that's for the pets. From what I can tell, they don't allow privacy fences.

I've often wondered if it is possible to get around the "no fence" rule by putting in hedges.

Two community centers, two pools, shuffleboard, tennis, hot tubs, billiards room, library, community activities. Basic cable & trash/garbage pickup are included in the $88 a month HOA fee. Fences are supposed to be approved by the developer, but I doubt there would be a problem. I own 2 houses in Pine Run, one of which has a fenced yard.
I'm telling ya, I haven't been over there yet, but Pine Run seems to have THE best bang for the buck that you'll ever see in a 55+ community.

This post was from 2015.

It was reanimated by Windwalker asking about 55+ communities with fences in Arizona.

I would suggest posting directly in the Arizona forum, if you have not already.
