With the proposed lawsuit against Somersett Development Company et. al. regarding SOA rockery wall defects, questions have been raised as to why rockery walls within Sierra Canyon (SC) were not included in the rockery wall assessment report performed by American Geotechnical and the subsequent lawsuit. At the Litigation Information Meeting, the SOA Attorney clearly stated that maintenance of common area rockery walls within SC were the responsibility of the SC HOA and not the SOA (this also applied to other Sub-associations as well).
However, it has been questioned as to whether or not some of the Sierra Canyon walls may actually fall under SOA responsibility based on the 4/11/2017 Maintenance Easement Agreement (MEA) between SC and the SOA. The MEA establishes an easement along the Del Webb and Somersett Parkways within SC for which the SOA has maintenance responsibility.
