IT’S TIME TO TRIM THE TREES
It’s that time of the year again to have the palm trees trimmed around the complex. This year, GLS Landscaping can trim the trees for you.
- The only entrance gate for Sunrise Palms is the gate that is located on Frances.
- Fruit picking time is here! Please take the time to remove the fruit from your trees and pick it up off the ground. This will really help keep rodents away and keep you compliant with the Rules and Regulations.
- Most importantly, please pick up after your dogs and/or cats. If you see someone not picking up their pets waste, please notify the on-site office right away.
Below are the Dunn Edwards paint colors that can be used to paint your front doors. If you do not wish to paint your door, it will be painted the color that is currently used.
Here’s a progress photo of the current painting project in Sunrise Palms. If you would like to offer any feedback to the Board of Directors, please send it to Justine in the on-site office.

It is also recommended that homeowners check the automatic timers on their irrigation systems in their yards. They should be set for watering for not more than 3 minutes at a time and not more than 3 times per day. Watering over night helps with less evaporation. If you notice that your grass/desert scaping is too wet or water is seeping through your brick wall your watering too much.

Visit www.dwa.org/rebates and learn how to save water and money. Did you know that water efficient sprinklers can save up to 1,400 gallons per year? Weather-based irrigation controllers are another way to cut cost on your water bill. Fill out an application and see if you qualify a no-cost smart controller and free installation.
JUST SAY “NO” TO SHORT-TERM RENTALS
While many of us would like to rent out our units on an occasional basis (who doesn’t need a little extra cash?), please remember that under our HOA governing documents, you are permitted to rent out your unit(s) only for periods longer than 30 days. So, that’s “no” to Coachella or Stage Coach rentals, and “no” for the pool party weekends sponsored by various hotels around town during the summer months, etc. We want to keep Sunrise Palms quiet, clean and comfortable for all.
If you do advertise your unit for rent on websites or apps, or through a management company or agent, please make sure that it is clearly stated that you will not accept a rental of less than 30 days. “Errors” on websites or by rental agents or by tenants count against the homeowner when it comes to assessing fines, which are $1,000 for the first offense, $2,000 for a second offense, and $4,000 for subsequent offenses.
Few short-term rentals go undetected, so please remember the Board takes this requirement very seriously, and will continue to take action against homeowners for violations. Your neighbors will thank you for your cooperation.
