New Residents

Welcome to Quail Creek!

Moving into a new home and community can be an exciting time, especially a premier, active adult community like Quail Creek! Full of fun amenities, clubs, activities and a myriad of “must dos”, it can be a bit overwhelming initially. This page is designed to help you ease into your new lifestyle at Quail Creek.

If you're a new homeowner, your first stop is to register with the Concierge Desk at the Madera Clubhouse. Call 520-393-5822 to make an appointment. You will need to bring your completed closing papers from the title company with you to complete the process. 

The Property Owners' Association staff is at your service!

New Homeowner Orientations are held approximately quarterly and are for new homeowners who have closed on their homes since the last orientation. Homeowner orientations are posted in What's Happening at Quail Creek, our daily (M-F) email newsletter. 

At the orientation, each of the POA's managers and directors will introduce themselves and talk about their areas of responsibility. 

When you schedule an appointment and meet with the friendly staff at the Concierge Desk in the Madera Clubhouse, you will receive a Welcome Packet which contains information and forms such as:

You will receive a copy of the latest Source Book which contains the names and addresses of residents who wish to be listed. In order to be listed in the next Source Book, you need to fill out and submit the form located in the first few pages of the book or complete the online Source Book form. The deadline for submission of information and/or corrections is July 1 of each year.

In addition, you will receive your Homeowner's Wristband or Keyfob. These items have an embedded microchip that is used to check in at the Anza Athletic Club and Pro Shop. Optionally, if activated, they can also be used to charge items at the Grill, Madera Clubhouse and Pro Shop.

The Concierge Desk will be your information center and contact for any POA personnel. They also act as a Box Office for tickets sales for events in Quail Creek. The number for the Concierge Desk is 520-393-5822.

Finding Your Way Around Quail Creek

Quail Creek is fortunate to have a variety of facilities, meeting rooms and sports venues available, but it can be a challenge to find your way around.

Navigate the streets and buildings of Quail Creek with the help of maps and floor plans of many of the commonly used areas. The Maps and Floor Plans section of the website (found under QC Info on the navigation bar) can help. 

Gate Access

Both the Main Gate and South (Back) are accessible with an electronic window tag.

To register for a window tag, complete a Window Tag Registration Form. Call the Gate House at 393-2941 for an appointment for window tag installation. Complete one form for each vehicle. Bring the completed form, Homeowner ID card and your vehicle registration to the Gate House at your appointment time.

The window tag is a Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) sticker which automatically lifts the gate, as your vehicle approaches, allowing you entry. If you choose not to use a RFID window tag or the tag does not work in your particular vehicle, you may present your Robson issued Homeowner's card at the Main Gate for access. Window tags for two vehicles are installed at no charge. Additional vehicles may be tagged for $25 each.

Architectural and Landscape Committee (ALC)

Initial landscaping for new homeowners must be completed within 90 days of the close of escrow. The ALC is responsible for the guidelines that define criteria for maintaining our homes and landscaping. These criteria support the value of our Quail Creek investment by ensuring we remain surrounded by homes reflecting acceptable aesthetic standards. The ALC Requirements and Guidelines along with ALC FAQs and plants for Landscaping in Arizona are available on the website page ALC Requirements & Permits.  The ALC meets Thursday mornings at 9:00 AM in the Gold Room of the Madera Clubhouse to review ALC Permit Applications and issue an ALC permit on project approval with an anticipated completion date.

The State of Arizona requires that a licensed contractor be used for project that will exceed the sum of $1,000. The Quail Creek Architectural and Landscaping Committee strongly recommends that homeowners use only licensed contractors. Contact the Arizona State Registrar of Contractors (520-628-6345) to verify the status of a contractor’s license and to hear about any complaints against him/her.

Things You Need to Do

As a new homeowner, there are some things to do as you get settled into your new home:

Driver's License - Apply for an Arizona Driver's License, license plates and voter registration at the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division. Arizona issues an "extended" driver license that expires at age 65. Renewed licenses are valid for five years. Drivers 60 years old and older will receive a five-year license. The Motor Vehicle Division does not have a formal notification process to notify you that your license is expiring.

License Plate - State law requires that "ARIZONA" (or "AZ" in the case of a small-size plate) at the top of Arizona license plates not be covered or otherwise obscured. Any license plate frame, holder or cover that prevents the license plate from being clearly legible, is in violation of the law.

Name Tag - If you wish to order a name tag, order forms are available from the Concierge Desk in the Madera Clubhouse. Order directly from the company.

Postal Service - Set up local postal service and pick up your mailbox keys from the USPS, 50 E Continental Rd, Green Valley, AZ 85614.

Satellite Dish - If you plan to install a Satellite Dish, you need to notify the ALC, per ALC Reqs & Permits. Forms are also available at the Concierge Desk in the Madera Clubhouse.

Utilities - Contact local utility companies for services. See Arizona A-Z.

Visit the Green Valley/Sahuarita Chamber of Commerce for information about the local area. Chamber offices are located at 275 W. Continental Road, Suite 123. Call for information 520-625-7575.
