PORA Works For YOU!

PORA, Property Owners and Residents Association, is the primary liaison between SCW unincorporated community, Maricopa County, the City of Surprise (and other municipalities), the State of Arizona, and our federal government. PORA’s membership of approximately 8,000,  reaches the residents of Sun City West, Corte Bella and Sun City Grand.   Membership is essential in sustaining our present self-government status and for the continuation of PORA’s beneficial programs.  Members have access to vendor referral services upon request and members also receive complimentary Notary services.  A one year membership to PORA for an individual is $15 per single, $25 per household. New residents of 6 months or less get a FREE one year membership.  New residents of 30 days or less get a FREE gift upon sign up.    Non-residents living anywhere outside of Sun City West, Corte Bella and Sun City Grand may join PORA, for the same fees, as an Associate Member.  Associate Members are attributed the same benefits as full members, but are not allowed to vote in any governing board elections or decisions.  All can enroll in membership at the PORA office or by calling 623-584-4288.
