Do Not Feed The Wildlife!

Please do not feed the wildlife that pass through the community, do not place food items in the wash or any other areas outdoors. Feeding wildlife will eventually cause harm to wildlife and the individuals who feed them. The Arizona Department of Wildlife warns that javelina and other various animals in the community can inflict serious, or even fatal wounds on pets and humans if approached.

(Ordinance-08-22, 2008.)” The fine carries a minimum mandatory of $25 up to a maximum of $1,500 per incident.
