Caliber Access on Preston Community Association Website
Posted on Jul 24th, 2015 Comments (0)
Letters were recently sent out via hand-mail (U.S. Post) to PCA members from your management company, CAS, Inc., describing a way to access homeowner account information.
 
That access is also tied in here on your Preston Community Association website. Members can register for web page access if they don't already have it by clicking the link at the top of the page. You'll be assigned a password via e-mail for access to the homeowner section of your PCA website.
 
Once you enter the homeowner section, you'll see the 'My Caliber' on the left side of the home page. That link takes you to the same address that was presented in the letter you received with your Caliber Password from CAS, Inc.
 
For increased security, you have the additional password that was hand-mailed to you which will allow you access to the Caliber homeowner account portal. Please keep both passwords handy for your PCA and Caliber access.
 
Should you have any difficulty accessing your PCA homeowner portion of the website, please contact your HOA manager, Pati Barrow, at pati@casnc.com.
For assistance logging in to your caliber website, please call CAS customer service at 877-420-9320.

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

Parking on the street in Preston Community Association
Posted on Jun 1st, 2015 Comments (0)
Dear Preston Community Association,
One of my duties as your Community Association Manager is to enforce the Rules and Regulations of your association (also known as the governing documents). One of the top complaints I receive from residents and that I encounter during my property inspections relates to on-street parking.
Preston Community Association has restrictions for on-street parking (which also apply to guests of residents of Preston Community Association ) which means during property inspections, if a car is parked in violation of the rules, homeowners will receive a notice.
 
Please see this enclosed summary of the PCA and local Municipal parking rules. Should you have any questions of concerns, you are welcome to contact the property manager at pati@casnc.com or attend a meeting of the Preston Community Association Board of Directors. The meeting schedule is on the PCA website.
Thank you.

Summer Crime Safety Tips from Town of Cary
Posted on May 13th, 2015 Comments (0)

I hope this email finds each of you doing well! With summer fast approaching and the end of the school year near, we generally see an increase in open garage burglaries and larceny from autos. Officers have already begun taking reports involving these types of offenses. These types of crimes are very preventable and we want to reach out to you in the interest of spreading the word. With your help we will continue to make Cary one of the best places to live, work and raise a family. 
 
Please distribute the following Crime Prevention tips to the Community Watch members you support in Cary.

Burglary Tips:

* Lock all doors and windows.
* Activate your alarm system, if applicable.
* Use a keyed deadbolt or a deadbolt with a removable thumb latch if you have a window within 48” of a deadbolt.
* Make sure valuables are not visible from the street.
* Work together with your neighbors to watch out for one another.
* Don’t leave your garage door up unattended.
Motor Vehicle Break-in Tips:
* To help prevent these types of crimes, please do not leave valuables or cash in your car.
* Never leave a firearm in an unattended vehicle.
* Park in well lighted areas.
* Always roll up the windows and lock the car, even when it is in front of your home.
* Hide items from view - If you have a trunk place these items there. If you have an SUV with an open back consider the glove box or other storage bin underneath the seats.
* Limit buying expensive items and leaving them in your car for long periods of time.
* Never leave GPS units/ mounts visible when vehicle is unattended.
* Remove after market stereo equipment from the dash.
* Take care not to leave personal identification in your vehicle.

Warmer weather brings about increased chances for encountering snakes
Posted on Apr 14th, 2015 Comments (0)
Dear Preston Community Association Members,
The PCA office received a note about snakes being spotted on the PCC golf course as well as on a few neighboring properties.

As we get into a season where we'll be outside more, your likelihood of encountering a snake increases. Here is some useful information on snakes from the NC Cooperative Extension Service at NC State University:
 
Most people are bitten when trying to kill or handle a snake. As a general rule, snakes are just as frightened of you as possibly you are of them. Often they move as quickly as possible in the other direction. Snakes cause no property damage, but seeing a snake or its shed (skin) may frighten some people.
 
Snakes are seen more often in the spring or fall as they search for food or move to and from a hibernation area. Snakes frequently are associated with small mammal habitat because rodents are a primary food source. For this reason snakes are considered beneficial to man.
There are two forms of control measures that can be taken (nonlethal and lethal). The difference is that while nonlethal measures can be taken at any time, lethal measures can only be taken when a snake is seen.
 
Nonlethal control measures are the most commonly practiced forms of control. Snakes can be discouraged from staying in an area by cutting off their food supply and cover. Mow closely around homes and outbuildings, and store firewood and lumber away from residences. Reduce mulch layers around shrubs to about 2 to 3 inches in depth to discourage small animals. Close cracks and crevices in buildings and around pipes and utility connections with 1/4-inch mesh hardware cloth, mortar or sheet metal. All doors and windows should have tightly fitting screens.
 
Small areas where children might play can be protected from most snakes with a snake-proof fence. The cost of the fence may make it impractical for an entire yard. The fence is made of 1/4 inch mesh wire screening built up 30 inches and buried 6 inches underground. It should slant outward at a 30 degree angle from bottom to top. The supporting stakes must be inside the fence and any gates must fit tightly. Tall vegetation just outside the fence should be removed.
Repellents such as sulfur or mothballs have proven ineffective at keeping snakes away from residences. However, snakes can be easily moved. Small snakes may be swept into a box or bag and removed. A large snake can usually be carried outside suspended over a long stick.
If a snake enters a residence, it may be difficult to find. Since snake are drawn to moist areas, they can be encouraged to move to one area by placing a wad of damp cloth covered with a dry one at different places along a wall. The pile must be large enough to allow the snake to crawl under it. Check the piles each day and remove the snakes found there.
 
The only lethal measure recommended is a long-handled shovel or hoe to kill the snake by severing the head from the body. DO NOT handle the head of a venomous snake alive or dead. A recently killed snake may bite by reflex action. Venomous snakes should only be killed if their presence endangers humans or pets. More than 80% of snakebites occur when a person is trying to kill or handle a snake. If the snake is encountered outdoors, the best defense is to back slowly away from it.
