Based on Councilman Vartan Gharpetian’s public comments made at the Glendale City Council meeting of September 10, 2019, Royal Canyon Property Owners Association Board of Directors has learned that he was deeply offended by the actions of few homeowners regarding his participation at the

RCPOA’s private, non-political summer social party. 

We apologize to Councilman Gharpetian and immensely regret this unanticipated and hurtful incident. 

Offending him was never the intent.  For anyone to allege that the actions were premeditated and racist in nature is absolutely inaccurate and unacceptable. 

As a result of his feedback, members of RCPOA Board of Directors are reviewing  policies, procedures, and protocols to make sure that this type of incident never occurs again.

We are a diversified group of volunteer individuals who respect everyone in our community. We hold our elected officials in high regard as they represent us and serve our community well.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, our goal continues to remain how to best serve the homeowners in our designated neighborhoods and to make sure that our neighbors get to know each other, feel safe, secure and welcomed.
