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!)
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.
If you would like to reserve the Ramada at South Lake please contact Lynette at the Community Service office firstname.lastname@example.org. A deposit is required.
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.
Common area walls include the exterior wall facing any common area in Estrella (roadways, lakes, etc.) Homeowners maintain 50 percent of the shared cost of a common area wall and 100 percent of neighbor-to-neighbor walls.
Some of the walls in Estrella are currently under litigation.
If your wall is in need of repair that poses a safety hazard, please contact the Facilities Maintenance Department.

If you would like to correspond with a member of the Estrella management team regarding a community topic, please feel free to send an email to us directly.
To register for events, visit LifeInEstrella.com then click on the calendar listing of the event you would like to attend. Then, click on the link to create an event registration account. You will be redirected to a separate website, where you will be asked to create a new password and user ID to register/pay online. Once created, you will not have to repeat this step again. Your event account is separate from your website account, and the usernames/passwords are not transferrable.
As an alternative, registrations may also be completed at both Starpointe and Presidio front desks.
There are multiple ways to find out about Lifestyle's upcoming events. The Lifestyle page on the LifeInEstrella website has upcoming event information as well as flyer attachments. Weekly email newsletters, the monthly Life In Estrella magazine and the official Life In Estrella Facebook page are three great ways to also find out information. The Starpointe and Presidio Residents Clubs also carry information at their entry desks, on TV monitors (Starpointe only) and on flyers in the magazine racks.
It depends. Each event's marketing indicates if guests are welcome. If so, there is an automatic guest fee (usually $5) above the cost of a resident ticket. There may also be a resident/household limit on the amount of guests a resident can bring.
Since Lifestyle hosts approximately 80 events a year, each event needs to wait it's turn to be marketed. Typically you'll see event details approximately 30-45 days in advance. However, we often have the dates of our bigger events planned further out.To inquire about upcoming signature events, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Not usually. The PreSchooners Club is available for children potty trained through age 9. Hours and rates can be found at PreSchooners Club. However, Lifestyle does not arrange for special childcare in relation to Estrella events.
Estrella Lifestyle plans and offers residents a wide range of incredible events, simple small scale events to the complex and extravagant! If Lifestyle paid for every expense of each event, a very limited number of activities would be offered to residents each year. By sharing the cost of events and charging a nominal fee to residents, or by working with sponsors and partners to share costs, Lifestyle has the ability to host a multitude (over 80) events a year for residents to enjoy.
Event costs, space constraints, vendor guarantees and purchases make it necessary to obtain an accurate count in advance of most Estrella events. Pre registration allows Lifestyle to plan and execute the most successful and cost effective events possible... for you to enjoy.
We love our Lifestyle event volunteers! Just let us know your interests and availability, and we'll contact you when we need help. Events that typically need extra volunteers include Estrella Signature events, Winterfest, Spring Fling, and Halloween Screamfest. Volunteers ages 16 and up are welcome to volunteer.If you're REALLY looking to get involved, the Estrella Social Committee is another option. Residents are welcome to attend a meeting to get a sense of how the committee functions and what its' purpose is. If you'd like to join, fill out an application for Board consideration. Members are typically added once a year. Our Social Committee volunteers usually have a flexible schedule since they assist at a majority of Lifestyle events.
Absolutely! We always welcome your suggestions and feedback. The easiest way to reach us is by email, Helene Benigno at firstname.lastname@example.org and Erin Stewart at email@example.com .
Please keep in mind that there are many considerations that go into selecting the types of events that we do and not every idea is feasible. Also, the Estrella event calendar is scheduled far in advance. Typically, the Lifestyle team begins planning the next year the summer prior. The best time to give us event suggestions is between June and August when planning begins for the next year.
SPONSORSHIPSPlease get in touch with us! There are typically five event sponsorship opportunities a year that will fit your business goals:Spring: Spring FlingSummer: 3rd of JulyFall: Annual Meeting and Halloween ScreamfestWinter: WinterfestPlease send a note to Erin Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org for event sponsorship information. Please keep in mind that only one sponsor in each type/category of business is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please don't wait to indicate your interest.
