IT'S A GOOD TIME TO SLOW DOWN
Posted on Apr 29, 2015 Comments (0)
The Allen Police Department is conducting additional speed and DWI enforcement throughout the City of Allen to increase the safety of our roads and highway. The additional enforcement efforts are provided through the Texas Department of Public Safety's "Selective Traffic Enforcement Program" grant. The grant allows extra officers to provide enforcement in high traffic areas.
 
YOUR VOTE COUNTS!
Posted on Apr 28, 2015 Comments (0)
Growth in the northwest Allen ISD (AISD) has far surpassed projections, impacting capacity at Lindsey, Cheatham, Boon, and other schools. Lindsey is confirmed to have six portable classrooms next year and has been overflowing to surrounding schools for months. Seven of the top-ten selling subdivisions are zoned to Cheatham and Lindsey, and growth is expected to continue to climb in 2015-2016. The AISD Board will soon consider whether to build an 18th elementary school and whether residents have a voice in zoning changes.
 
In previous school elections, StarCreek residents spoke loudly at the polls, increasing our voter turnout by over 600 percent. StarCreek had the largest voter turnout and percentage increase of any neighborhood in Allen! Our residents have a reputation for being educated on the issues, engaged in our community/schools, and active voters - a reputation that has strengthened our relationships with AISD staff and board members. Recently five StarCreek residents were selected to serve on AISD’s Project Kids Committee. 
 
The best way to continue to strengthen our relationship with AISD is to continue to engage in the political process by voting. Our size alone is powerful, as AISD candidates over the past two years won with only 955-1,920 votes. With over 800 homes/1,500+ adults, StarCreek can significantly impact an election.

RESTRICTIONS CHANGING SO WE CAN WATER MORE OFTEN
Posted on Apr 13, 2015 Comments (0)
 
 
 
North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) water supply reservoirs have reached sufficient levels to ease watering restrictions earlier than previously planned. Beginning May 1, Allen residents may water their lawns up to twice a week on designated watering days.
 
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.
 
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 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.
