Annual EE Easter Parade

Who says we are too old to cruise our EE neighborhood streets honking and shouting? As long as it's a parade in the middle of a lovely Easter afternoon, it's perfectly ok...and we did and it was fun! We had a beautiful day, lots of parade participants, lots of driveway observers, and delicious Easter desserts afterward. Hope you were able to join in the fun!

Street Lamps

From Tom Cooke

Please keep in mind that our CCR’s require each homeowner to keep the street light in good working order, provided, however that bulbs for the street lights are provided by the HOA at no charge.

To provide uniform lighting only one type of bulb may be used. We ask that you do not replace the bulb yourself, but instead call the HOA at 520-399-0455 when you need a new bulb, and we will replace it for you. Replacement bulbs will be of the LED type and are rated to last for several years.

If your lamp post or light has problems other than those a new bulb will remedy, call Guy Carlson, our resident expert, at 657-500-9193 for repair work at a reasonable price.

A Reminder Regarding the Painting

Of Your Home

From Debbie Ries, EEHOA Architectural Control

In Esperanza Estates, it is the homeowner's responsibility to get written approval from the HOA Board prior to any repainting of the house exterior or walls. You an obtain the Pre-Paint Aproval Form a this link on the EE Website.

Esperanza Estates houses were originally painted in one of four Dunn Edwards paint colors. With Norfolk brown on exposed wood. 

Please keep in mind, there is a reason why a specific brand is recommended. It is consistency. Your home’s exterior is under a constant exposure to UV radiation mixed with dust storms, monsoon rain, and more. Your stucco home takes a beating throughout the year.

To stand up to this environment, you need the best-possible exterior paint. Dunn Edwards exterior paint is specially formulated for the Southwest desert sun, heat, wind, and rain. For a few extra bucks (comparied to Benjamin Moore) your exterior paint will last longer and look better.

If the color used is not deemed identical to the appropriate color, the HOA could require the homeowner to repaint.
