Estrella Mountain Frequently Asked Questions

If I buy a custom lot, do I have to build right away?

The answer is no. No time constraints or limits. Matter of fact; you never have to build if you don’t want to.

What are the current HOA fees?

In 2023, they are currently $112 a month, paid quarterly. Gated neighborhoods pay slightly higher.

What is a CFD?

It’s an acronym for Community Facilities District. In Goodyear, each of these districts has ‘special assessment’ fees they pass on to the public. They are revenue bonds.

For Estrella Mountain Ranch, these fees are paid by homeowners. Initially, the buyers of new home construction are assessed these fees. They can be paid all at once or through an amortization schedule.

A resale buyer may incur (negotiable with current homeowner) the remaining unpaid fees as part of their purchase. For more information follow this link: Estrella Mountain Ranch CFD to the city of Goodyear website for further details.

Does Estrella Mountain contain CC&RS? Can I review them before purchase?

Yes. Estrella Mountain does have C,C, & R’s (Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions). C,C, & R’s are created to preserve the continuing excellence of life in our Estrella Mountain Community. To review the C,C, & R’s, contact The HOA (CCMC) at 623-386-1112.

Estrella Mountain Ranch History

The Estrella Mountain Ranch history is believed to have been started with the Hohokam Indian inhabitants. The Hohokam were located in the area from 470 A.D. to 1448 A.D., and depended on the streams and rivers in the area for their survival.

A crucial element needed for them living in a desert was water. The Estrella  Regional Park sits above these waterbeds where they could have eye witnessed the several interesting events that would have been lived out in the desert below.

The Hohokam culture was based almost exclusively on irrigated agriculture, according to the Historical Atlas of Arizona. The Hohokam, and the future cultures of the community, utilized the canal system, where it was once located within the borderlines of the Estrella Park.

In the early 1600’s the Pima and Maricopa Indians were establishing themselves in the Estrella community. They were living in the park and mountainous area.  Some of there encampments were along the Gila River river and its streams.

For over the next 200 years, several different Indian tribes migrated throughout the state to make there territory claims. However, the Pima and Maricopa tribes stayed in the Estrella Community area.

Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo for Estrella Mountain Ranch

In 1691, a person named Father Eusebio Francisco Kino explored the Santa Cruz River north to the Gila River and then followed the Gila River, west to California, and advanced through to the Estrella Mountain Park area. Father Kino would become the first European to view the Sierra Estrella area. Father Kino surveyed and charted the Indian campsites between the Estrela Mountain Park and what was subsequently the Mexican border between 1691 and 1704,  

During this time and up to 1776, Spain governed and impacted the area through the colonial government in Mexico City, what is currently the central portion of Arizona.

In 1822 the Spanish rule was ended by the Mexican Revolution, as the southwest desert interest in this territory from the United States was starting to develop. There were border disagreements between United States and Mexico.

In 1846, the war started with Mexico, and a new American occupancy in Arizona started. The United States military decided to acquire entry to the southwest to obtain future access to the West Coast. This aggression provided to the decline of the native Indian American occupancy.

In February 1848, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the war between Mexico and the United States. Mexico agreed to give up all claims to Texas and accept the Rio Grande as the border of that state. Mexico furthermore accepted to sell its New Mexico territories and Upper California areas to the United States for $15 million.

When the Gadsen Purchase was enacted in Arizona, the land north of the Gila River was declared United States territory. The Mexico/U.S. border was moved to its present day location. The Estrella Mountain Regional Park finally became a part of the United States for the first time.

Indian reservations started to become established in Arizona in the 1850’s. The Gila River Indian Reservation was the first one created, in 1859. Being the only reservation set up before the civil war, it was established between the Maricopa and Pima Indians and there ancestral lands, to the south and east of the Estrella Mountain Regional Park. 

Between 1860 and 1880, an Anglo presence took over the Gila River Valley as they were the first settlers of their kind to set up farms in the south central Arizona area.

During this time, there were only a few reservations for Indian tribes or nations. The first school was built close to the park in a town currently called Liberty by the late 1880’s.

By 1890, the city of Avondale was established after being previously called the town of Coldwater. Later, in 1916 the town of Goodyear came into existence.

Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department began obtaining land and developing the park system.  The County Parks and Recreation Department continued to look for additional land to develop parks, and residents of Avondale and Goodyear showed interest. In 1953 a community park was built in that part of the valley.

At the end of 1953, the residents of Goodyear and Avondale area met to inquire of the possibilities of creating a county park in the west valley. A number of residents were added to the County Parks commission, and the County Parks and Recreation staff created Estrella Mountain Park.

Estrella Mountain Park at the outset, consisted of 828 acres, 428 acres of purchased property and 400 acres of leased land, and in the first year, the upkeep budget was less than $10,000.

Estrella Mountain Park was considered a community park for the first few years. In 1958, Estrella Mountain Park was designated a “Regional Park” by the Maricopa County Parks association.

In 1962, the Sierra Estrella Golf Course opened with nine holes. Estrella Mountain Regional Park was growing in size, so a golf course was a logical decision. Development continued.

To be determined…

1984

In a separate limited agreement, the Federal preserved land of Estrella was sold to a private entity. This was due to an unlinked land disagreement between Navajo and Hopi in northern Arizona.

1985

The master-planned community of Estrella was created. The enterprising  Charles Keating, known more for the Lincoln Savings and Loan scandal, identified the intrinsic value of the Estrella area potential, and purchased it.

1986

Two freshwater lakes were constructed on 72 acres, bordered by hiking trails and a community park. A boat landing, a sandy beach area and the stocking of fish in the lakes were created.

1988

The Phoenix Symphony performed for the Grand Opening of the Estrella Community during a three day event to attract perspective buyers into the area. The Estrella Mountain Elementary School opened later that year.

2005

Newland Communities purchased Estrella and began changing the previous developers plans. Residents were not happy with the takeover, as Newland appeared to only be interested in their bottom line. See 2019 reference and decide for yourself.

2019

What is now 600+ acres of a development called Lucero, it was originally slated for an additional golf course. Across the street and to the south was a planned Resort. Both of these amenities were scratched to provide Newland an additional revenue stream.

Also across the street from Lucero, are custom homes in the areas called, “The Summit” and “The Trails.” You can only imagine what these established homeowners thought of the future golf course being replaced by over a thousand stick built homes in there direct view…

These two areas were originally planned to be gated, but Newland cancelled that plan too.

Another desire of the previous developer that Newland poo-pooed, was the burying of the current, unsightly power lines. Obviously, it didn’t fit into their budget, as constructing more homes appeared to be more important to them.

Can you tell I’m not fond of Newland…However, I still cherish Estrella despite the despicable decisions they made.

2021

Toll Brothers, Harvard Investments, and Värde Partners, in a joint venture acquired Estrella Mountain Ranch. The hope is, that this developer is more resident conscience than the previous developer.

2022

Estrella Mountain Ranch is still the best master-planned community in the state. It currently offers the finest amenities at the most reasonable monthly HOA fee. Other communities either have higher HOA fees or less amenities. As residents, we pray that trend continues. I pinch myself everyday, walking or riding my bike around both lakes. The beauty of the mountains and calmness of the lakes is unparalleled.

2023

More growth, higher prices. However, the quality of life in Estrella Mountain remains exceptional. It’s a pleasure to see the community and the facilities being updated. More people on the hiking trails than years past, which is wonderful. Would love to see a few family restaurants here in Estrella.
