1. ASSESSMENTS: The deadline to make your HOA assessment payment is quickly approaching. All assessments must be received and processed by April 30th. Late fees will be applied May 1st. 

If you are 65 or older and have a car registered in Arizona that needs to have an emissions test before being registered in Arizona in either April or May of 2020, this info about getting a one-time waiver for the emissions test may help you.
You can get the form to fill out for the waiver online at AZDEQ.GOV/65waiver. Complete the waiver application and either return it electronically or mail it to ADEQ using the address provided on the website. The cost is $9.50 and is in lieu of the fee for emissions testing. The fee can be paid online or by mail. (Note it has to arrive promptly so online is recommended.)
You will be notified by email (typically it ends up in your SPAM folder) within a couple of days. If you are approved, the email will direct you to submit the waiver fee and then complete your application for renewal – including paying that fee also. Your new registration sticker that expires in either April or May of 2021 will arrive in the mail in a couple of days.

3. COMMUNICATOR & EMAIL BLASTS: Please do not reply to the Communicator or Email blasts. The webteam is made up of volunteers from the  Sunflower Community and will not be able to reply. If you have any questions or comments please contact the Village Center at 520.572.9780. Thank you.
