How Sun City West Is Governed
Sun City West is an unincorporated area. This means that there is no city government, mayor or staff to address the needs of the community. PORA is the quasi-governmental entity that acts as a vehicle for communicating those community needs and works to address and resolve them. That is, PORA works with Maricopa County, its agencies, the Board of Supervisors and state and federal legislators to enact and implement related policies. PORA has a strong relationship with the Sun City Home Owners Association (SCHOA) on mutual community concerns and helps provide a solid single voice to issues or concerns. PORA is growing the relationship with the local area school districts to help communicate information.
PORA stands poised to support the community of Sun City West and works with area agencies on critical issues and needs. In advocating as a voice of impact with government at all levels, PORA’s advocacy is strongly reflected in its role of intervenor with utility rate proceedings, road safety, transportation and water issues.
