WELCOME TO OUR NEW PET CORNER
Posted on Oct 9, 2014 Comments (0)
WELCOME! Each month, you will find a brief bio and photo of a neighborhood pet here in Announcements. Many StarCreek families are animal lovers, as evidenced by the number of dog walkers on the trail each day. Additionally, many other kinds of pets live in our neighborhood. Each month, we will highlight one of our pets and introduce the pet and family to you. This month, you will meet my dog, Amber. Many of you have already met us on the walking trail. Amber is a four-year-old rescue, part Vizsla and part something else, who has lived with us in StarCreek for 15 months. She is a quiet and loving girl, liking nothing better than spending time with us, Paula Ashley and Donald Herrick. If you meet us on the trail, stop and say hello! We love to chat. 
Please send your pet or pet and family photos to Paula Ashley. See the Resident Directory for contact information.
 
STAGE THREE WATERING RESTRICTIONS CONTINUE
Posted on Aug 26, 2014 Comments (0)
Stage 3 of the Water Conservation and Drought Contingency and Emergency Water response plan for the City of Allen is still in effect. The City will strictly enforce water use restrictions. Citations are punishable by significant fines for each violation. Mandatory water use restrictions include:
  • Prohibit hosing of paved areas, buildings, or windows. (Pressure washing of impervious surfaces is allowed.)
  • Prohibit operation of all ornamental fountains or other amenity impoundments to the extent they use treated water.
  • Prohibit washing or rinsing of vehicles by hose unless using a shut-off nozzle.
  • Prohibit using water in such a manner as to allow runoff or other waste.
  • Limit landscape watering with sprinklers or irrigation systems between November 1 and March 31 to once every two weeks.  The NTMWD voted to allow weekly watering from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31. StarCreek's watering day is Wednesday.
  • Time of day restrictions prohibiting lawn irrigation watering from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning April 1 and ending Oct. 31 of each year.
More information on what is and is not allowed is available on the City of Allen website. Our careful water use will help with water conservation and prevent costly fines. Here is a watering schedule map for the city.

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, November 1, 2014, 9 a.m. at clubhouse
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. Currently, four cleanup events are scheduled for the 2014-2015 school year.

The City of Allen provides all of the supplies for the cleanups, 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 cleanup, you must complete a Release of Liability form. To volunteer contact Darlene DeDominicis. See Resident Directory for contact information.
