NTMWD EXTENDS WATER RESTRICTIONS
Posted on Mar 2, 2015 Comments (0)
In response to the ongoing drought and historically low lake levels, the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) Board of Directors recently voted to extend the NTMWD Water Conservation and Drought Contingency and Water Emergency Response Plan Stage 3 seasonal watering restrictions through April 30. This means that residential and business customers will be limited to landscape watering with sprinklers or irrigation systems to once every two weeks, when needed. StarCreek's only two watering days in March are March 11 and 25. Our dates in April are April 8 and 22. No watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
 
Future actions on watering restrictions will depend on water levels in the District’s supply reservoirs.
“Our primary water supplies are below normal due to less than average rainfall and the persistent drought,” said Tom Kula, Executive Director of NTMWD. “Before we can lift water restrictions, our reservoirs need several months of average rainfall -- enough to significantly raise lake levels.” For now, the NTMWD Board of Directors will reconsider the continuation of Stage 3 watering restrictions on a monthly basis at least through May.
 
MARCH GARDENING TO-DO LIST
Posted on Feb 25, 2015 Comments (0)
Average Date of Last Freeze in Dallas County: March 4 - 12
 
Planting
Plant ornamental trees and shrubs while the weather is still cool.
Divide and replant fall flowering plants such as asters and mums.
Complete transplanting of established woody plants before bud break.
Plant cool season flowers such as alyssum, daisies, dianthus, and geraniums (mid to late March).
Plant spinach, radishes, lettuce, through mid April. Also plant snap beans, cucumbers, sweet corn, lima beans, mustard, tomatoes, and squash late March when soil temperatures are warm enough for each variety.
Begin to plant warm season flowers as temperatures increase towards the end of the month and as they become available in nurseries.
 
Pruning
Prune back overgrown ground cover such as English ivy and Asian jasmine to maintain the height you prefer. Do so before new growth begins.
Cut back ornamental grasses before new growth appears.
Remove winter-damage from shrubs and other ornamentals.
Do not prune spring flowering shrubs and vines, until after blooming such as forsythia, quince, azaleas, spirea, etc.
Allow foliage on spring bulbs such as daffodils to die back and dry before removing, to create food for next year’s plants.
Based on a soil test fertilize established shade trees, ornamental trees, and shrubs as spring growth begins.
Check new growth on ornamental plants weekly for aphids and scale insects and treat if necessary.
Fertilize fescue lawns in early March as per soil test results.
Continue to feed pansies and other cool season annuals to extend their bloom season.
Continue to protect tender plants from late freezes.
Happy Gardening!

WHO 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. Using this online form, you can 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.

STARCREEK TEAM CLEAN-UP
Saturday, April 4, 2015, 9 a.m. at pavilion
StarCreek Team Green is a City of Allen Adopt-A-Waterway program. We have adopted the portion of Cottonwood Creek which runs from Highway 121 to Stacy Road, with a small tributary extending to Watters Road. This area is very safe. We clean the creek, ponds, walking trails, and common areas located in the neighborhood of StarCreek. The areas are very well maintained by our HOA; however, the HOA does not pick up the litter; that is up to volunteers.

The City of Allen provides all supplies for the clean-ups, including gloves, trash bags, and grabbers. All we need now is you. Many students have schedules which may conflict with these days/times, but if you need community service hours and can't participate on Saturday mornings, contact Darlene DeDominicis for a day/time that works with your busy schedule of school, work, and sports. If you have never participated in a Team Green clean-up, you must complete a Release of Liability form. To volunteer contact Darlene. See Resident Directory.
