TWICE-WEEKLY WATERING ALLOWED THIS SUMMER
Posted on Apr 13, 2015 Comments (0)
The City of Allen is observing the restrictions in its water conservation plan. During conservation, sprinklers are allowed up to 2 times per week, but only if needed, please.
 
StarCreek residents' primary watering day is every Wednesday. Our optional watering day allowed is every Saturday. Despite the new allowances, residents may not run sprinklers between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. or when it is raining.
 
Twice per week watering may not be necessary. StarCreek residents are advised to use sprinklers on Wednesdays (from midnight to 10 a.m. and/or 6 p.m.-midnight), adding a second day of watering on Saturday (same hours as Wednesday) only if needed. On other days, hand-held hose watering, use of drip systems or soaker hoses may be used when necessary, as long as no runoff is occurring. From April 1-October 31, no sprinkler use is allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sprinkler use is not permitted when it is raining, and water waste (such as excessive runoff, failing to repair a controllable leak) is considered a violation.
 
WHOM TO CONTACT FOR LIGHTS OUT
Posted on Jan 17, 2011 Comments (0)
If you find that a streetlight in StarCreek doesn't come on when it gets dark, contact the City of Allen at LightOut@cityofallen.org. Describe the problem and the location of the streetlight. Keep in mind that streetlights that stay on during the day should also be reported because of unnecessary energy consumption. In either case, the city will route the request to a contractor who replaces the bulbs or makes a repair. A response takes about one week after notification. You can also call the City of Allen, 214-509-4576.
 
If streetlight fixture is broken or the spotlights on neighborhood entry signs are out, contact StarCreek property manager Teresa Lamb at tlamb@cmamanagement.com.

HOUSE FIRE CAN HAPPEN TO YOU
Monday, July 20, 2015, 7-8 p.m. and Sunday, July 26, 2015, 3-4 p.m. at clubhouse
In light of the recent home fire on Boxwood Drive, StarCreek'S Village Representatives and Neighborhood Watch committee are partnering with the Allen Fire Departrment to host two meetings to educate StarCreek residents on home fire safety and prevention. We are delighted to have Chief Bill Hawley, Fire Chief of the Allen Fire Department, as our guest speaker for one of the meetings. A second meeting, targeted specifically to families, will provide a hands-on experience for our children on how to safely exit a home during a fire as well as other fire safety and prevention tips. We hope you will reserve the following date(s) on your calendar to attend one or both of the meetings. 
 
Monday, July 20, 7-8 p.m. (adults-only meeting)
Topics will include the recent fire on Boxwood Drive, family exit plans, fire safety and prevention, lightning and other causes of fire, and the connection between home alarm systems and 911. Fire Chief Bill Hawley will be our guest speaker. Also in attendance will be Allen's 911 educational coordinator and StarCreek resident Todd Sanderford, who will share his family's experience with the fire that destroyed their home. This discussion will be targeted to adults and may be too advanced for young children. 
 
Sunday, July 26, 3-4 p.m. (families meeting)
Topics will include family exit plans, general fire safety and prevention information for families. The discussion will be targeted to families and children of all ages. A fire truck and safety education trailer will be on site to provide a hands-on experience for children in how to exit a home during a fire and other safety practices. The full-size safety trailer, configured like a typical home, provides a unique, hands-on simulation for kids of all ages on what to do in case of a fire in the home.
 
Residents are welcome to attend one or both meetings. Light refreshments will be provided. For more information, contact your Village Representative. See Board/Village Reps page for contact information.
