Sun City residents who filed a lawsuit against Recreation Centers of Sun City to force some operational changes gained a partial victory.
Arizona Superior Court Judge Roger E. Brodman ruled Sept. 4 that Recreation Centers of Sun City is subject to the Arizona Planned Communities Act, ARS 33-1801. However, the judge ruled that plaintiffs did not satisfy all requirements of a class action lawsuit, and that portion of the suit can be revisited, according to court documents.
More than 20 Sun City residents, including Anne Randall Stewart, who coordinates movement called Sun City Formula Registry, filed the lawsuit, claiming RCSC officials should be subject to the Planned Communities Act and charges fees unfairly and unequally. RCSC is a nonprofit corporation charged with maintaining recreational facilities and offering recreational and social activities for residents in the age-restricted active retirement community on unincorporated land in Maricopa County. There are about 27,000 households with a population of about 40,000 people in the community.
