MORRISVILLE PARKWAY GRADE SEPARATION
Posted on Feb 7th, 2014 Comments (0)
Projected Construction Start Date: April 2014 (although some utility work has already begun near our Preston entrance at Crabtree Crossing and Morrisville Parkway)

This $16 million project by the NCDOT is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The project will eliminate an at-grade railroad crossing by building a bridge for the railroad over Morrisville Parkway.

Construction is scheduled to begin by April, with completion by 2017. The project will require a 6-9 month closure of Morrisville Parkway between Crabtree Crossing Parkway and Bristol Creek Drive, but that closure will not occur for approximately 2 years. The project also includes construction of a left-turn and right-turn lane on Morrisville-Carpenter Road at Town Hall Drive, expected to occur this summer. 

For more information, please visit the Town of Morrisville Transportation website
 
Avoid Roofing Scams!
Posted on Feb 3rd, 2014 Comments (0)
Perhaps you have noticed roofing signs posted in the front yards of homes throughout the neighborhood. There seem to be plenty and there has been a lot of re-roofing activity in Preston and Cary since the hail storm of July 2012.  Avoid potential fraud, being taken advantage of, or possible insurance claims abuse by bewaring the following scam tactics.  Additionally, you may not realize, but frivolous insurance claims can lead to higher state-wide premium hikes.  In addition to the scams below, you may want to read the following article from the News & Observer regarding the most recent rate increase request from insurance companies in North Carolina: Insurers seek 25 percent increase in NC homeowners insurance rates.

2013 Annual Membership Meeting
Posted on Nov 21st, 2013 Comments (0)
The 2013 Annual Meeting of the Preston Community Association membership was held at Prestonwood Country Club Tuesday evening, 19 November.  Thanks to all that attended.  We had an unusually large crowd – a very good thing – which demonstrates the interest that many of you have in our wonderful neighborhood.  Thanks to Prestonwood for the great setting and terrific food – and for finding seating for the overflow crowd.
 
Your Board would also like to thank Jennifer Burch, our property manager with PPM, Inc., and her staff, for a very well-run event.  We had five ballot items to consider and they did a great job distributing ballots, collecting proxies and tabulating results during the course of the meeting.
 
First, Your Board of Directors would like to congratulate and welcome Ron Woodard to the Board, as well as congratulate winning incumbents Steve Delmar and Vince Thai.  The Board thanks Steve Stone for stepping in to fill a Board vacancy earlier this year and for his hard work and service to the neighborhood.  He is the departing member of the Board of Directors.

Loose Leaf Collection
Posted on Nov 11th, 2013 Comments (0)
Cary residents are encouraged to lasso your loose leaves in preparation for the Town of Cary’s annual Loose Leaf Collection. Starting Tuesday, November 12 and lasting through January 26, Town crews will visit each street in Cary once a month according to this year’s collection map and schedule (most of Preston appears to be in Area 1). To ensure collection, loose leaves should be curbside by 7 a.m. on the first collection day of your area. For the safety of all, leaves should not be in the roadway or blocking sidewalks, fire hydrants, and mailboxes.

Holiday Season Safety
Posted on Nov 7th, 2013 Comments (0)
The Town of Cary Police has published two notices with useful reminders about crime prevention for the upcoming holiday season. 
 
Cpl. John Moon had this to say, "With the coming of the holidays, we would like your residents to be vigilant in their neighborhoods and take preventative steps to reduce their likelihood of being a victim of these types of property crimes. Property crimes tend to rise slightly during the holidays so getting the message out is important to us."
 
 
While Cary is generally a safe and pleasant place to live, please take a moment and read over these fliers to ensure you are doing the most you can to avoid becoming a victim.
 
We hope everyone has a safe, happy holiday season!
 
Sincerely,
PPM, Inc.
 
 
 
PCA Board Response to Special Meeting Petition Procedure

Early last week, the PCA Board received a request from organizers of the Stop the Park movement, or most lately known as the Vote the Spending movement, for a special procedure to be used to handle the submission of a Special Meeting petition.  After discussion with our legal counsel, a reply was issued later in the week.  The reply can be found in our Message Board here.

Preston Ponds Park: From Appalling to Appealing!
Posted on Sep 11th, 2013 Comments (7)
 
Hold onto your hats!

The picture below is what the “Preston Ponds Park” looked like before the idea of an open green space that all Preston residents could enjoy was even a consideration.  The overgrown banks, unruly shrubbery and dead or dying trees were uninviting, unattractive and in no way enhancing the value of the neighborhood.  In all honesty, the area simply looked forgotten, abandoned.

Plan Now to Reseed Your Lawn!
Posted on Jul 31st, 2013 Comments (0)
This article is reposted with permission by Mr. Hal Goodtree, Publisher, CaryCitizen.com  Click here to be redirected to the original article.
 
In years past, prime reseeding time in the Triangle has been late August or early September. But this year, temperatures have been cooler. If the summer weather pattern continues, reseeding time may be as early as mid-August.  

So start your planning now (especially if you have to kill off weeds). That’s why, during our vacation week, we’re re-running this story from August 2011 called Rescue the Fescue.

Lawn Grasses

Fescue is a type of grass that likes cooler weather – it looks best during spring and fall. The time to fix fescue lawns that have been damaged by summer’s heat is coming up.
