Reseeding Your Lawn: 2014 Piedmont Edition
Posted on Sep 17th, 2014 Comments (0)

The post Reseeding Your Lawn: 2014 Piedmont Edition appeared first on CaryCitizen.

Cary, NC — Across the Carolina Piedmont, it’s been a cool summer, with temps never cracking 100° F this year. Lawns across town look better than ever. Does that mean you can skip reseeding this fall? Of course not.

Reseeding Your Lawn: 2014 Piedmont Edition

A September hot spell will give way to cooler weather. Now’s the time to reseed your lawn. It’s already prime-time to reseed – don’t let it wait until the end of the month.

1. Cut the Lawn Short & Bag It – Give your lawn a close haircut. Bag the grass clippings.

2. Rake It Off – After you’ve cut the grass (and bagged it), give a surface rake to the entire lawn. Try to get as much thatch – tangled mats of dead grass – off as you can. The idea is to expose the soil so the new seeds can make contact with the dirt.

PCA News / Week of 15 September 2014
Posted on Sep 15th, 2014
Aviation Parkway Temporarily Reduced to One Lane

Aviation Parkway will be temporarily reduced to one lane of travel near the NC54 intersection starting September 15 with an expected completion date of September 20. Contractors will be on site widening Aviation Parkway to a 4-lane, median-divided road from Cotten Drive to the entrance of Cedar Fork District Park.  Please plan accordingly for increased traffic delays and slowdowns on Aviation Parkway.
 
Property Manager Change
 
After multiple discussions between our Board and Professional Property Management of Raleigh, Inc. (PPM) about clarifications to their contract and our desire for an expansion of the services covered, PPM elected to not renew our contract. The primary reason cited for the change is that PPM believes, and the PCA Board agrees, a majority of a property manager’s time is required to manage our large neighborhood association.  Due to PPM’s commitments to its other customers, serviced by our same property manager, PPM was not in a position to make portfolio adjustments at this time.
 
Your PCA Board is currently soliciting bids for replacement community management services and expects to name a new management company in time for our Annual Meeting in November.  Meanwhile, PPM will be available to service our needs. While this will be a period of change for our neighborhood, your PCA Board believes a new manager, together with a new contract structure and focus, will deliver professional and highest quality services to each of you and to our neighborhood.
 
Break-In Reported
 
In our recently completed neighborhood survey, most of you responded you would appreciate being informed of unlawful activity.  Well, last week a home in the Creek Park area was broken into, with the burglar(s) entering the home from the golf course side through a window off the deck.  This occurred around 9:00pm while the owners were absent, but AFTER a couple earlier that evening had been through the neighborhood going door to door.  Please be alert.

7 Day Closure Dates for Morrisville Parkway Grade Separation
Posted on Jul 1st, 2014 Comments (0)
From Town of Morrisville Website:
 
NCDOT Announces 7 Day Closure Dates for Morrisville Parkway Grade Separation
 
NCDOT has announced that Morrisville Parkway will be closed to traffic between Crabtree Crossing Parkway and Bristol Creek Drive for 7 days in mid-July. This closure is part of the Morrisville Parkway Grade Separation project, and is required to allow NCDOT and railroad contractors to construct a new temporary railroad crossing in order to keep Morrisville Parkway open for much of the construction period. Another closure, lasting approximately 6 months, will occur in 2016.
 
The 7 day closure is expected to begin around July 21st, with the road re-opening after July 28th – electronic message signs will be in place to notify the public of the road closure at least 14 days prior to the road closure. These dates may change due to weather and other construction delays, so the Town will be posting updates here, via the Notify Me email lists (http://www.townofmorrisville.org/list.aspx) and social media. During the road closure NCDOT will have a detour route posted, using NC 54, Cary Parkway, High House Road and Davis Drive.
