Upcoming PCA Board Meetings
Posted on Nov 13th, 2015 Comments (0)
Dear PCA members,
There had been a notice of a Board of Directors Regular meeting set for November 19th, 2015. However, that was a clerical error. The Board does not have a Regular meeting the same month as the Association's Annual Membership meeting. The next Regular meeting of the PCA Board of Directors will be Thursday, December 17th, 2015 at Searstone from 5:30-8pm.
The Association will be looking for a new location for its Board meetings for 2016 due to an increase in cost for using searstone's facilities. The new location starting in January will be announced as soon as it's secured.

PCA Annual Membership Meeting November 10th - did your notice arrive?
Posted on Oct 29th, 2015 Comments (0)
The PCA Annual membership meeting is Tuesday, November 10th 2015 at Searstone. Check-in is to start at 5:30pm with the meeting to start at 6pm.
Notices were sent out but we received word from one member that they did not yet receive theirs. We want to make sure everyone has notice, so if yours has not yet arrived:
1) Check your e-mail. Preston community offers legal notices via e-mail to members who registered and chose that option on the website. If we had a bounce-back on your e-mail, you were sent a paper copy of the notice. We'll follow up and ask you to please update your e-mail address. In the meantime, please check your spam folders and contact for another try to perhaps a different e-mail address.
2) Did you change addresses? We may have your old information on file. Contact to double check and have an e-mail address ready for her to send you your notice.
3) Can we blame the Snail Mail? We sent notices last week and some have arrived but yours apparently might not yet have made it. Some notices were sent from Apex while others were sent from our office in Pinehurst. We do our best to get them out in a timely manner, but its out of our control once they're picked up. Contact and we'll send one to you via e-mail.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
Sprucing up Your Landscaping? You'll Want to read This
Posted on Oct 29th, 2015 Comments (0)
Autumn is lovely, especially with the changing of the leaves in Preston Community.
What is not so lovely is when they fall - especially if you do not know what your Town's guidelines are for leaf collection.
PCA follows the local ordinances regarding leaves, so please be sure to read the attached links to your community (Cary / Morrisville). This is especially important, as while Town of Cary has a curbside loose leaf collection (which does not start until November 9th, 2015); Morrisville does not have such a program yet in place. 
Also, while this might also be a good time to spruce up the yard and perhaps remove a few trees, there is a reason Preston Community Association asks you to submit an ARC application for tree removal - your local ordinance might require you obtain a permit to remove trees from your property. The Town fines could be hefty for that, so why not check ahead of time and save the hassle of a letter from your local Town compliance officer?
If you have any questions, please contact your HOA manager at
Google Fiber in Preston Community Association
Posted on Oct 16th, 2015 Comments (0)
Its likely you've seen Google Fiber being installed along some of the city rights-of-way in Preston Community over the last 2 months. Most likely what you've seen as been as a result of Google Fiber having agreements with local municipalities.
Within other areas of Preston Community Association, the Association had to enter into an agreement for Google Fiber to be installed. Homeowners can log in and view this agreement in the homeowner section of this website.
If you have questions about Google Fiber, their company welcomes hearing from you and has provided the following contact information:
Construction phone line: 877-454-6959
Customer support line: 866-777-7550
Email or chat:
A definitive timeline for installation from Google has not yet been provided to PCA, but once one has been received, we'll post to this site for your information.
Playground Grand Opening a Fun and Successful Event!
Posted on Sep 29th, 2015 Comments (0)
Rain on Saturday caused the Grand Opening of the PCA playground to be postponed until the following afternoon.
Light rain even stuck around for a majority of Sunday, but that didn't dampen the spirits of the many residents who came to see the improvements made over the summer to the community's playground on Creek Park drive.
It certainly helped that the weather broke clear for most of the 2 hours of celebration Sunday afternoon. While break in the rain lifted spirits, Mother Nature also had some assistance in the good will department  -  no matter what their age, attendees got to channel their inner child and enjoy the ice cream truck with its variety of goodies.
Many parents who attended were excited about the park and the kids were happy to play not only on the new play structure which features multiple slides, but also to swing on the new swing set. All one needed to do was see the expressions on the kids faces to know the neighborhood has been enhanced in a very positive way.
While the official opening is now a part of the past; the opportunity for fun will last for years into the future.

Home Break-in / Burgulary In Preston Ponds
Posted on Sep 23rd, 2015 Comments (0)
Dear Preston Community Association residents:

Last night, 9.22.15, there was a burglary at approx. 9PM in Preston Ponds .

The homeowner was returning home with his children, made a left into his driveway, opened the garage door and saw a person in his garage with red sneakers who ran into house and presumably out the back door. No one at home prior to homeowner arrival.

Homeowner noticed a Silver Acura TL at the nearby stop sign. The Silver Acura TL turned right on Creek Park made a U turn came back and presumably picked up the one who broke into the home. The police dog lost the scent near Bridle Creek and Creek Park. Nearby neighbors called 911 and Police responded within minutes. The burglars had been in the house and went through drawers in the master bedroom. Police took finger prints.

Apparently the burglars gained entrance by breaking into the garage via a side door which was kicked in which triggered the home security alarm. That is all that is known now. 
Please see the enclosed sample photos of an Acura TL , as we do not know the year or have the license plate:

 Considering the distraction caused by the number of contractors in the area as well as many other reasons that cars drive through Preston, please make a note to secure your home as best you can. Also remember that the Police from Cary and Morrisville offer free security evaluations of your home (by appointment).

Crime Prevention Assessments: The Police Department offers crime prevention assessments to Town of Cary residents and businesses at no cost.  These assessments provide crime prevention tips and recommendations on how to remedy possible security vulnerabilities.  If interested, contact Town of Cary's Community Services Officer at (919) 469-4324 and a Crime Prevention Specialist will visit your home or business to conduct this assessment.

Morrisville residents can request a home safety evaluation from Town of Morrisville police by filling out the form at the Town of Morrisville link below :
Preston Community Association also has a Neighborhood Watch program. This is an excellent opportunity for neighbors to look out for one another. For more information please contact your PCA Vice President, Vince Thai, at:
