The Solar Access Rights Law, Passed by the Arizona Legislature in 1979, prevents HOAs from banning rooftop solar systems. Ground-based solar systems are not permitted. State law still allows HOAs the ability to influence where solar devices may be installed; as long as the placement of such devices does not significantly increase the cost of installation or significantly decrease the device’s efficiency.
Homeowners are still required to submit a Property Improvement Request (PIR) Form BEFORE any work is performed. Design Review and Approval is required for any solar installation to your home. Consult the Design Review Page for more details.
The short answer is “No”. While Arizona state law ARS § 9-500.39, prohibits cities and towns from placing limits on short-term vacation housing rentals; at present, there is no statute in Arizona that prohibits private regulation by CC&Rs of vacation rentals.
Section 9.02 Renting, of our CC&Rs requires a minimum rental period of thirty (30) days. Additionally, a copy of the rental agreement must be provided to the Association. Renters and guests are subject to the rules and restrictions of the Association. .
Association dues are used for providing professional management of the Association, landscaping services for the common areas, and capital funding for the expense of maintaining our private streets.
For 2024, each homeowner will be assessed $82.50/Quarter; that’s an annual cost of $330 dollars per Lot. The $18 dollar annual increase over the 2023 dues is to meet inflation related cost increases, and an increase in funding our capital reserves.

Canada Hills Community Association (CHCA)
Eagles Bluff HOA is also known as “Village 14” in the multi-village Cañada Hills Planned Community. In addition to our local association dues, which only fund our operations; the Cañada Hills Community Association (formerly known as the “Master” Association), assesses each homeowner lot to fund their activities. The CHCA dues for 2023 are $118/year
Members of the Board of Directors, officers and committee chairs, volunteer their time. How about lending us a hand? We can always use the help and new ideas.
The short answer is ‘No’. Both Eagles Bluff and The Canada Hills Commumity Association (CHCA) rules do not permit basketball standards (hoops) to be mounted over garages that face the street. While the CHCA guidelines allow portable standards to be used in front and backyards, Eagles Bluff Bluff HOA does not permit any fixed or portable basketball standards to be used or stored in public view, anywhere, any time. Resolution #2005-02 Basketball Standards and Basketball Hoops – Prohibitions.
Not necessarily. Before April 2003, ALL modifications to the exterior of your home required a two-step approval.
- A review by your Eagles Bluff Design Review Committee (DRC);
- A review by the Cañada Hills Design Review Committee (DRC)
After April 2003, certain modifications that clearly meet Cañada Hills Association Design Review Committee Guidelines AND Eagles Bluff’s CC&R’s and rules do not require prior approval. To simplify the approval process, Eagles Bluff HOA follows the CHCA DRC’s guidelines, with only a few exceptions.
This can be confusing, so our recommendation is to check with any Board member well before proceeding with any modification to the exterior of your property.
Remember, if your design modification requires a review and approval by the Cañada Hills Design Review Committee (DRC), it must first be reviewed by your local Eagles Bluff DRC. Refer to the following link: Design Review Process, for more information
Whenever in doubt, contact a Board member or our HOA Manager for details.
What gives? The Board or some Committee has the right to tell me what I can’t do with my house and my yard?
Three documents actually, that you signed at closing, acknowledging your obligations to the CC&R’s, By-Laws and Rules of the Association;
- The Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs), a document defining the Association and basic rules and standards for the Association’s Board and members. Membership is automatic and mandatory when you purchase a house in this community;
- The Association By-Laws and Rules, which further define how the Association must be run; and
- The Planned Unit Development (PUD) Rider.
The short answer is “No”. Our Association’s CC&Rs severely restrict parking on the streets and driveways within the community. That said, the Board of Directors, at its discretion, has allowed limited parking within the community. Refer to the following resolution #2017-01 Parking Policy and Regulations for full details.
State Law ARS 33-1809 permits emergency responder vehicles such as an ambulance or EMT truck, and public utilities, to park on private property and public/City-owned streets; they are absolved from a homeowners’ association parking restrictions.
The emergency responder must register their vehicle with the HOA Manager to qualify for this parking regulation exemption.
This gate and the passageway leading to it between Lots 6 and 7, reside on private property. According to the Rural Metro Deputy Fire Marshall, property owners are permitted to lock the gate as well as deny public access to their private property.
Garbage collection days are on Tuesdays and Fridays, excluding holidays. The recycling pickup is only on Friday. When a holiday falls on collection day, pickup is moved to Wednesday and Saturday of that week.
The Association has signed a community-wide, exclusive service agreement, with Waste Management. This agreement is to limit the frequency heavy truck traffic on our streets. All owners and occupants are required to use Waste Management for collection services.
Garbage collection service is not part of your association dues. This permits each homeowner to customize the level of collection service and cost that is most appropriate for them. Each homeowner or resident is responsible for obtaining an account with Waste Management. Refer to the 08-September 2017 letter to Homeowners and Occupants on this topic as well as the Association’s Trash Collection Policy.
You are requested and required to follow these procedures on collection day:
- Place your container(s) at curb side no sooner than the evening before collection.
- Keep your container accessible. Parked vehicles and other obstacles may prevent Waste Management from servicing the container.
- Promptly remove your container(s) from curb side after collection, no later than the morning (7AM) following collection day.
- Store the container(s) either in your garage, side or back yard, behind the gate.
It is the Board’s discretion that these three locations are considered as being “removed from view”.
