Car Break-Ins on Rise: Remember to Secure Your Doors
Posted on Aug 25th, 2015 Comments (0)

Dear Preston Community Association Residents,
The following News release is for your safety. Recent car break-ins have been reported. While those referenced were mostly along Kildare farms Road and Walnut Street, you can never be too careful.
Please be mindful of your car, garage, and home access doors and remember to lock them.
 *Cary PD Reminds Drivers to Lock Doors Following Recent String of Car
 CARY, NC – *With a rash of vehicle break-ins over the last few weeks,
 the Town of Cary Police Department is reminding all citizens to lock
 vehicle, shed and garage doors before turning in for the night.* The
 most recent spree was on August 18 when Cary Police took reports of 14
 breaking and enterings into cars, two motor vehicle larcenies and one vehicle burglary.
 In all instances, only unlocked vehicles or unlocked sheds were targeted.
 Items taken include credit cards, cash and miscellaneous small
 electronics; in one instance, an unlocked vehicle with keys inside was
 stolen. No injuries were reported.
 “Nearly all of last week’s break-ins occurred in residential areas
 along Walnut Street and Kildaire Farm Road, but it’s a good reminder
 to all no matter where you live to be sure to secure car doors, shed
 doors, garages and any other exterior doors just like you lock your
 home’s front door before going to bed,” said Lt. Brian Smith of Cary’s
 Criminal Investigations Division.
 Often, motor vehicle larcenies are crimes of opportunity and can be
 prevented by following some simple tips:
 • Avoid leaving valuables in plain view, including loose change and cash.
 • Always roll up the windows and lock the car.
 • Remember to take quick action in notifying police to help increase
 the chances of apprehending the suspect and preventing future incidents.
 These crimes are part of an active investigation and anyone with
 information is encouraged to contact the Town of Cary Police
 Department at
 (919) 469-4012 or file a report anonymously with Cary Crime Stoppers
 (919) 460-4636. Crime Stoppers pays up to $2,500 for the arrest or
 indictment of those responsible for committing certain types of
 crimes. All calls will be kept CONFIDENTIAL at the caller's request.
 For more crime prevention tips, see the Police Department section of or call (919) 469-4324. For real-time crime
 updates, follow the Town of Cary’s Safety feed on Twitter @TOC_Safety.

Preston Playground Open!
Posted on Aug 12th, 2015 Comments (0)
Those of you who drive past or live along Creek Park Drive near the playground have seen a lot of activity over the last month. The playground, installed by Atlantic Coast Playgrounds, is complete! The  play area features an ADA-compliant playset and new swings. It will also have a side entrance installed in the next week.
PCA hopes you will love the updates made to your community playground!
Homeowners can self-submit architectural applications
Posted on Aug 11th, 2015 Comments (0)
Preston Community Association homeowners can now submit their project applications directly to PCA via this link. The HOA has returned to Hoaarc for project application management, but with a twist; homeowners can now directly load their application with all supporting documents to the site.
The application will still be reviewed by the HOA manager for completeness before sending it to the ARC committee for review.
The ARC committee meets electronically, so there is no specific deadline for submitting your application ; however, there is a 30-day evaluation period per PCA guidelines, so please plan accordingly when evaluating your timeline and working with your vendors, etc.
If you have questions, please contact your PCA manager, Pati Barrow, at

Van spotted in Cary following children
Posted on Jun 25th, 2015 Comments (0)
Please see the message below regarding a white utility van (license plate DAT-6791). Cary Police has advised several things regarding this van:
1) One of the men affiliated with the van was arrested today for unrelated outstanding warrants.
2) The other man was not arrested and had no warrants, but is a registered sex offender in Florida.  Cary Police are following up further at this time.
3) Both men were advised not to return to the Regency community area (5 neighborhoods in Cary, near Penny Road/ Ederlee Road). 
4) If you see the van or either man, please notify Cary Police by calling 911 immediately.
5) If you have ANY first-hand information about these men speaking to children or any direct contact with the men, you need to immediately and personally notify Cary Police.
 This week, notify any officer at 911 or the Cary non-emergency police line at 919-469-4012 or Randall Rhyne at 919-469-4017.
 After Captain Tingen returns next week, you can resume calling him at 919-469-4088.  To be clear, if you or any member of your household, especially a child, spoke to these men or had the van follow them, Cary Police wants you to notify them immediately of what happened, even if it seems minor or inconsequential to you.
We ask that you take no action other than warning people and calling police. Do not attempt to take the law into your own hands. Please share this with nearby neighbors.  If you wish to obtain additional information, please call Cary Police. The information included in this e-mail is the only information the HOA has at this time.
If PCA homeowners plan to rent out a room in their home in Preston Community Association.....
Posted on Jun 24th, 2015 Comments (0)

Dear Preston Community Association residents,

It has come to the attention of the Association that there are homes within the association actively advertising and renting rooms for temporary stays.
The Association's Covenants do not allow for this use of a home. The covenants state, 'Each lot shall be used exclusively for single-family, non-transient residential purposes.'

In addition, if a resident is using their Preston Community Association property as a rental property, please be advised that if the tenants use the property in the manner listed above, the homeowner  will also be held responsible as the homeowner for this use.
Prestone Community Association Plans for Updated Playground
Posted on Jun 23rd, 2015 Comments (0)

Dear Preston Community Association Neighbors,
I hope everyone is having a great summer.  It has been very hot and muggy.  I hope you all are able to stay cool and in the shade.
The Preston Community Association Board of Directors has been working all year scoping the repair/update work at our playground by Creek Park.  The major update is the replacement of the 25 year- old play set and the swing.  This swing is no longer safe and has been decommissioned.  We have selected a vendor (Atlantic Coast Playgrounds) to perform the work.  The rendering of the new equipment is below. The plan/ schedule is:
July 13th - Playground Closed & Demolition Begins
July 20th - Estimated Parts Delivered
July 27th - Playground work /installation begins
Please plan to join us for a SUMMER ICE CREAM BASH celebrating the opening tentatively planned for August 1st, Saturday.   Exact time will be posted as we get closer to the project completion.  Please bring the kids and some refreshments should you like to share with our neighbors.  Our backup date is the 8th should mother nature bless us with more rain.   See you all soon!

Should you have any question, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Vincent Thai
Vice President,
Preston Community Association Board of Directors
