Pinetop Community Association

Our "Good Neighbor Community" since 1971, located in beautiful Pinetop, Arizona. The Pinetop Community Association (PCA), where we live good neighbor to good neighbor, in a unique alpine environment. We're here to provide you with information about your Association that we hope will be useful to you — our members.


Our Community

The Pinetop Community Association (PCA) has over 600 properties in five different units (platted subdivisions defined in the 1960's and developed in subsequent years). PCA was formed in 1971 as non-profit corporation registered with the Arizona Corporation Commission. PCA is NOT a planned community and therefore is exempt from Arizona laws regulating a "Planned Community" and the community governing body. More then 90% of properties have been developed, some owners have multiple adjacent lots which create a buffer space around the home. We are proudly a Firewise Community.

PCA’s 50th Anniversary Timeline

We are proud to be sharing PCA’s 50th Anniversary with you in “2021”! The lots in our area started selling in 1967 and it was unincorporated until 1974, and at that time there were 604 platted parcels. Thank you to all of our year- round residents who keep the pulse going and everything safe in our little neck of the woods. It is truly appreciated by all of us who increase the population substantially during peak summer months and shake up our peaceful corner of the world.

Quiet Hour

For years, but more recently especially, our “tranquil place of pine trees, peace and solitude” has been impacted by noise from additional traffic (more owners living on the mountain full or part-time), ATV’s passing through on their way to the National/Apache Forest (via our Fire Escape route), loose dogs, construction noise of new houses and many more visitors than in the past. Because of these reasons and more, the 2020-2021 Board of Directors approved and voted in a new “Quiet Hour Rule” effective January 21, 2021.

July 2022 Newsletter - VIEW



I would like to discuss our annual dues. We send out a notice at the end of the year and they are due on January 1st of each year. Dues are currently $40.00 per lot owner and are late if not received in the Frank Smith Association Office by April 1st of each year. Dues and Assessments that remain unpaid ninety (90) days after due dates shall be subject to a late fee of $40.00. Upon imposition of a late fee for unpaid Dues and Assessment, the Association will provide the delinquent owner with written notice of the total amount due and provide an additional thirty (30) days to bring the account current. If Dues and Assessments remain unpaid after the second notice, a lien will be recorded against the Lot and the Association may file an action in small claims court to obtain a judgment against the owner.

All attorneys’ fees and cost incurred by the Association in recording the lien and/or filing an action in small claims court will be added to the owner’s account ledger.

As of July we still have 76 homeowners that have not paid their dues for 2022. This is our source of income to pay expenses of PCA. Some of our expenses for PCA are as follows: Management Company, Legal Fees, software for the following: accounting, keeping track of dues paid and unpaid and recording permits requested and tracking violations. Additional expenses include our annual Website expense, phone answering system, postage and printing of our newsletter, supporting our Firewise Event and Community Patrol and expense of required annual meeting. All Board Members are volunteers and work very hard for PCA.

We would really appreciate each homeowner paying their dues before April 1st and it would save each homeowner a late fee of $40. Please bring your 2022 dues current and let’s do better in 2023.
