TEPOA Home

I have been a resident of TEPOA for 25+ years,  and know the residents well.
TEPOA is a 55+ community of 1665 units located West of Tucson.
The excellent facilities include:
  • 18 hole Executive Golf Course
  • 2 Swimming Pools and shallow wading pool
  • Sauna and Spa
  • Water volleyball
  • Swing set
  • Tennis and Pickle Ball Courts
  • Radio Station
  • Library
  • Exercise Room
  • 8 Shuffle Boards
  • 3 Pool (Billards) Tables
  • Card Room
  • Craft Areas for Pottery, Wood, Rock Art
  • Meeting rooms
  • 14 Acres for expansion (in progress)
The TEPOA Website and monthly newspaper keep residents informed of events.  A weekly e-mail provides the latest updates and pictures of activities.
TEPOA owns 14 acres of undeveloped desert North of the housing area.  A study to develop the 14 acres of land to add senior living and recreational areas is in progress.  This is in the planning stage and several ideas have been offered. (See details on the 14 acres section of this website.)
The facilities are only a part of what makes TEPOA great.  The real asset is the PEOPLE that volunteer their time to make the community so special.  We are like a big large family that works and plays together in our retirement years.  Yes, we sometimes disagree about what is the best plan to make TEPOA a better place.
The  $130 / month fee is very reasonable and includes the use of all facilities, weekly garbage removal, and maintenance for 13+ miles of streets that have no potholes.  TEPOA is not a place but a community of active, involved and friendly adults.
Some describe TEPOA as the best kept secret retirement community in Tucson.

14 Acres

TEPOA owns 14.2 acres of desert land located at the northwest part of TEPOA.  The area is west of golf course back 9, south of foothills, north of Rafter Circle and east of Tucson Estates Parkway.
The 14 acres is un-developed desert.  There have been MANY failed attempts to develop the area.  Pima County has indicated there will be a tax increase if the area is not improved.


This Mixed Use Proposal divides the 14.2 acres into 17 areas which can be developed independently over time, after the infrastructure is established.
The essential aspects of this proposal are:
  • No TEPOA land is sold.
  • The numbers in this document are preliminary and subject to change.
The term “senior living” is used to represent assisted living (medical) and/or independent living (no medical).
This proposal combines commercial and recreational venues. The objective is to make enough money to fund other projects that improve the quality of life for TEPOA residents.
The map and table (ON BACK) show the layout and estimated cost of the individual areas.
If there is a waiting list to be admitted to senior living, existing TEPOA owners and
renters will be added to list ahead of any non-TEPOA resident.
Advantages of Adding Senior Living
The senior living will produce a positive cash flow of $20,000+ per month to TEPOA,. This income can be used to fund additional recreational projects and slow the increase of maintenance fees.
Just a short golf cart ride, allows residents of TEPOA and Senior living to meet. Friendships will not be lost.
The preferential admittance of TEPOA residents makes living in TEPOA a plus and provides options so residents do not need to leave TEPOA..
Financial Summary
The numbers in this document are preliminary and subject to change.
Several financing alternatives were considered before selecting the option to lease (long term) 5 acres to a third party to build and operate the senior living. This option requires less investment of TEPOA funds and should result in a positive cash flow of $22,800 per month
Each of the units will be assessed a maintenance fee and the land will leased for $10,000.
Assuming 100 units this will provide (100 x128)+10000 = $22,800 per
month.  The lease fee is not final and will be negotiated with the 3rd party.
The infrastructure will be at expense of the 3rd party developer. The costs of developing the other mixed use options would be borne by TEPOA, and can be spread out over time so as to not strain existing financial resources.
Removable barriers (similar to those East of MPB) will restrict the road access  to golf carts to prevent unwanted traffic,
The numbers on map correspond to cells of the following table

       Web Design Skills

I retired in 2005, after a career with IBM as a computer programmer and system designer (27 years) and an independent consultant and speaker on OS/400 Security (15 years) .

In 2016,  the passing of a high school classmate caused me to start a charity to give a college scholarship to a graduate from my high school.  I created my first web page www.MVHS-Adams.com  to encourage giving by others classmates.   I enjoyed web page design, so  I joined TAPROOT+ and have completed over 20 website design projects (pro-bona).   My IBM experience in user interface design  are valuable when  I design websites.  I would like to assist you in new website design and the update of existing websites.

As I reviewed non-profit websites, there were similar problems that made the website less effective.   A presentation ‘Common Website Mistakes by Non-profits’  documents the common mistakes   You can download this document from the  DOCUMENTS tab on this website.

This web site is accessible for the vision impaired.
See ‘How to Make a Website Accessible for the Vision Impaired” on the  DOCUMENTS tab.

While creating over 20 websites,  I  learned to use the web page editors WordPress, Kix, SiteBuilder and Squarespace.

  • The WordPress editor is the most popular with 28% of all websites.  I learned (school of hard knocks) the vast number of options available in WordPress. WordPress allows simultaneous updates to DIFFERENT pages on the same website.  This makes WordPress ideal for a website with multiple programmers making updates.
  • The KIX and SiteBuilder editors are easier to use but have fewer software options.  All web pages are replaced at the same time so this editor is best used by a single web programmer.   If multiple programmers make updates care must be taken to avoid simultaneous updates.
  • Squarespace has a good editor but my experience the fees charged are higher.
    The Squarespace is only hosted by one company and no competition allows higher fees.
    For the cost-conscious, I do not recommend Squarespace.
  • HTML and CPANEL should be used only by experts as these editors require very exact coding (not a what you see is what you get type of editor).   I know enough HTML to make minor changes but I do not want to become an expert.

The MY WORK  tab on this website has examples  of my websites including links to the websites.

All-In-One Price for Service with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Wayne’s Web Design is your all-in-one solution.

I  specialize in non-profit organizations, start-ups, small businesses, and campaigns that have unique needs.  The large web design firms don’t care who you are or your budget. They will charge you the same hourly rate as everyone else, and still probably won’t offer you the services and one-on-one attention that Wayne’s Web Design provides.

There are some costs that can’t avoided, like domain registration/renewal and web hosting.   I will keep cost down but not sacrifice quality.  Before I even begin to work on your website, I will work with you to come up with a price that works for your budget.

There are cheap web design rates advertised but beware of hidden fees.   From registering your new domain name, to completing your website and setting up your email, I will be there at your side, from beginning to success!

I offer a one price for all services.

Questions & Answers

Why are my rates so low?

  •  I am retired with an adequate pension and social security.
  • I do not need to make/save  money for retirement as my children are financially independent.
  • My expenses are low.  Wayne’s Web Design world-wide international headquarters and development facility location  is bedroom #2.   The number of  employees  is 1.
  • My largest expense is computer hardware and software and web access.

Why not do work for free?

I want earned income to fund my 401K Roth IRA.   I believe in supporting education and give a significant amount to my colleges and charities I support financially.
I want to give to charities of my choice and not the US government.

I do many hours of pro-bono work for non-profits.    I have teamed with TAPROOT+ (https://www.taprootplus.org/) to find charities that request assistance.    TAPROOT+ projects are limited to initial design and does not include extended maintenance.

I  have 700+  hours and 18+ completed projects.   I enjoy the work and will continue to volunteer.  However.  I  discovered that managers of charities  are more  responsive when they pay for assistance.   I worked for days getting a site ready and at last minute the manager did not follow-up and publish the site.  The result,  all my work was wasted.  Because of busy schedules,  missed scheduled phone calls with non-profits  seems to be the norm for non-profit managers.

I  service my paying clients first,  many former TAPROOT+ clients have selected
Wayne’s Web Design for long term website maintenance.
