Street parking negatively affects the curb appeal of a neighborhood, can be dangerous, and prevents street sweepers from effectively cleaning the roadway; therefore, street parking is prohibited in Estrella, as is parking in gravel adjacent to driveways, on sidewalks or on landscaped common areas. Street Parking Waivers are available for authorized passenger vehicles of residents or visiting guests and may be granted for a period of three consecutive nights, but no more than 24 times per year. Please contact the Community Services Office at 623-386-1112 for more information or to request a parking waiver.
Parking of recreational vehicles and trailers is prohibited in Estrella, except in fully enclosed garages. If you or your guests need to park an RV or trailer on the street or driveway, you must obtain a Parking Waiver, which may be granted for a period of 48 hours, twice a month.
To request a Parking Waiver, you may contact our Compliance Team at the Community Services Office on weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m at 623-386-1112.

Trash and recycling pick-up is every Friday unless it is a holiday, in which case collection is the following day. Bins may be placed at the street after 5:00 p.m. the night before pick-up and must be stowed, out of sight, the day trash and recycling are picked up. Bulk trash collection varies by neighborhood. Please visit the City of Goodyear Sanitation Services Website for more information.
All trash shall be stored in covered containers. Trash/recycling containers must be stored in the garage, or in rear or side yards behind the wall enclosing the side yard where they are screened from view from the street or adjacent properties. Trash and recycling containers may not be stored in the front yard of any home and should be removed from the trash pick-up area on the same day that trash pick-up service is provided.
Bulk Trash must be left in the street next to the curb in front of your property. All items should be placed away from electrical boxes, cable boxes, mail boxes, poles, water meters and existing landscape.

Any debris that may remain after pickup is the resident’s responsibility to remove within 48 hours of pickup.
A healthy, mature and well-maintained landscape with a variety of plant species will add great value to your home. Therefore, all landscaping must be maintained in a neat and attractive condition. Specific quantity requirements for front yard trees and other plants have been established to create a consistent and desirable streetscape image within single-family neighborhoods. Additionally, the visible side yards of all corner lots must be supplemented with shrubs and accent plants to establish landscape height variation in these areas. Minimum maintenance requirements include: watering, mowing, edging, pruning, removal and replacement of dead or dying plants, removal of weeds, tree sprouts, noxious grasses, plant debris, and removal of trash. Gravel depth must be maintained in order to ensure full coverage of all unpaved (dirt) landscape areas and irrigation lines.

In February, the Community Services Office converted its property management system to an enterprise called VMS. As quarterly billing statements begin to arrive in mailboxes, you may notice some differences to your statement. The most notable change is your account number- you will see that it has changed. Please begin to use this account number with your payment.
Also, the vocabulary for the assessments is different. Please note that the "quarterly assessment" that was on your previous statements is now referred to as the "master assessment." If you live in a gated neighborhood, your "neighborhood assessment" is your "gated community assessment."
To make an online payment through Union Bank, or to set up recurring payments, please click on the links below.
If your assessment payments are set up through your private banking institution, you will need to change your account number and the PO Box number in the mailing address. The new mailing address for all Association payments is: PO Box 533182, Atlanta, GA 30353-3182
For information on all payment options, please visit http://ccmcnet.com/homeowners/payment-options/
If you have questions about the process for paying your assessments, please contact the Community Services Office Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 623-386-1112.
If there is ever an increase in what you owe, the Community Services Office automatically makes the changes for you. When you pay online or through your bank, you will have to manually make the changes. If you would like to sign up for Direct Debit, please contact our Receptionist, Jessie Salas, at 623-386-1112 or firstname.lastname@example.org

North and South Lakes are stocked at least once a year with a variety of fish to help control midge flies, aquatic weeds and algae, as well as sport fish for residents who enjoy fishing in the lakes. (Remember – it’s catch and release and barb-less hooks are required)
Over the past few years the lakes have been stocked with:
Blue GillWhite Amur (Israeli Carp)Sun FishGold FishFat Head MinnowsRed EarKoi
Golden Algae is a microscopic algae that can be devastating to the health of lakes and fish. Unfortunately, it can be carried by birds, other animals, or simply on the wind and is very difficult to prevent. The recent addition of reclaimed water to the lakes creates a nutrient rich environment for this and other types of algae growth. At the beginning of an outbreak, small amounts of dead fish will be seen.In order to manage algae outbreaks and other lake health issues, the HOA contracts with lake management specialists who regularly monitor the lake water for problems. Depending on the problem, the lakes are treated with fish- and wildlife-safe products.
The only area that can be reserved for private events is the large Ramada/Pavilion at South Lake Park. All other areas of South Lake Park and all other parks can be used by residents and their guests on a first-come basis.
While reservations for private events are not being taken at this time, you may contact Program and Private Event Coordinator Tara Gaffney at email@example.com for additional information.
The Estrella and Villages Community Associations provide for maintenance and painting of walls and view fences within neighborhoods. Maintenance is scheduled over a six-year rotation that was established by the Board of Directors.

Some of the walls in Estrella are currently under litigation.
