New Trash and Recycling Carts Coming!
Posted on Jul 23rd, 2014
IT'S TIME FOR NEW CARTS!
On August 1, 2014, as a result of a new franchise agreement, Progressive Waste Solutions will begin providing trash and recycling services for Frisco. One of the benefits of this transition will be brand new trash and recycling carts for every home in our city.
On June 2, CWD will begin removing carts from Frisco, one neighborhood at a time, and Progressive Waste Solutions will replace them with new carts simultaneously.  Our Environmental Services team has a plan to make this transition as smooth as possible:
1. Find out when cart replacements will happen in YOUR neighborhood.  Check out the city map here. 
2. Play it safe!  Put all carts out on every service day in June and July.
3. If you plan to be out of town on the day your cart replacement is scheduled, please contact us in advance at 972-292-5900 or at EnvironmentalServices@FriscoTexas.gov.  You can also ask a friend or neighbor you trust to roll your carts out for service that day, and roll them back up your driveway at the end of the day.
4. Please note that we can only replace carts that are out at the edge of your property.  We can not walk up driveways (private property) to retrieve carts.
 
NOTE: The City of Frisco is arranging for additional recycling service to meet the needs of residents who have experienced delays in recent weeks due to the changeover in providers. Please read for more details. If you have missed pickups, call 972-292-5900 or email EnvironmentalServices@FriscoTexas.gov.

Better Safe Than Sorry
Posted on Jul 10th, 2014
Summer is a fun time for all, and with the hot days in Texas, many people enjoy spending a relaxing day at the community pool.
 
Please remember to keep a safe environment for all.  If you have children in the pool, please be vigilant in watching them.  How many times have we heard, "But I only turned my head for a minute. . ."?  Children of all ages need monitoring whether they're young and splashing in the shallow water, or older children swimming underwater.
 
Also, please keep glass products out of the pool area, and always remember to clean up after your group leaves the pool or pavilion.
 
Have a safe and happy summer!

Frisco Watering News
Posted on Jun 13th, 2014

At the urging of the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD), the Frisco City Council voted to limit outdoor watering using sprinkler systems to once every two weeks beginning June 29, 2014.  Watering is not permitted between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.  The assigned watering day is based on location within the residential trash collection day zone and applies to both residential and non-residential customers. Please find attached the modified Stage 3  Watering Schedule Map and a summary of key items for water conservation in Frisco.
 
Area lakes are experiencing historic lows. The drought continues to persist, resulting in below average rainfall, and the hottest part of the season is just beginning.  Lavon Lake is more than four feet lower than it was this same time last year.
 
The best thing you can do is simply ‘turn off’ the sprinkler system.  It is important during the upcoming summer months to help protect our existing water resources and avoid Stage 4.
Under the modified Stage 3 restrictions, residents may water turf grass, landscaping, trees, and foundations using a hand-held hose, drip/bubbler system, and soaker hose for up to two hours daily, except between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Registered and properly functioning smart irrigation systems must comply with the once every two week restrictions.
 
Stage 3 violations result in immediate disconnection of the sprinkler system and a red sign is placed in the yard, noting the violation.  A $25 administrative fee will be applied to the first-time violator’s next water bill.  The fee for a first violation may be waived if residents complete a free sprinkler system check-up with a City of Frisco licensed irrigator.  Additional violations result in higher fees.  Violators will need to call Frisco Public Works, 972-292-5800, to have their outdoor watering system ‘turned back on’.
 
For more information about modified Stage 3 restrictions, visit the Water Resources Website and subscribe to Frisco’s weekly WaterWise Newsletter.  This is the easiest way to remain up-to-date on water restrictions and lawn watering advice based on Frisco’s weather station data.  A Water Resources staff member from the City of Frisco is also available to speak at any HOA meeting.  A brief presentation with a water supply update and information on current restrictions will keep you and your homeowners informed. 
 
We appreciate all of your efforts and continued support as we work to reduce water waste in Frisco.  I will be following up with additional program and outreach material that you can use in your community to further promote and educate your residents, employees and contractors.
 
Thank you again, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Use of motorized vehicles on grassy areas
Posted on Jan 3rd, 2014

Happy New Year Greetings to all!
 
Our office has received reports that people are using motorized vehicles on the grass.  Please be aware that no motorized vehicles of any kind (Razor Motorcycles, golf carts, and go carts, etc.) are allowed on the grass in the community park or any grassy area in the community. 
 
We appreciate your cooperation!
 
Thank you.

West Frisco Homeowners Coalition UPDATE - October 2013
Posted on Oct 14th, 2013
2487 and still counting! 

That’s how many letters we generated and mailed to the Texas Public Utility Commission showing our opposition to the proposed electric transmission line route down Stonebrook Parkway and Main Street by Brazos Utilities. Each of your letters have been opened and put into an electronic filing cabinet for the PUC to review. (To look at all of the letters that were sent in, go to http://interchange.puc.texas.gov/WebApp/Interchange/application/dbapps/filings/pgSearch.asp. Type in our File Number 41808, and hit search. All of the letters are there!!) Your letters more than doubled the old record of letters sent in opposition to a PUC filing!

As a result of all of these letters, Brazos has delayed their filing with the PUC and has indicated that they are considering other routes before filing in the future. We need to remain diligent as in these procedures, anything and everything can change in a moment.

If you have not yet sent a letter to the PUC, there is still time to do so. Since this project number has been closed, your letters should now be sent to:

Chairman Donna Nelson
Public Utility Commission of Texas
c/o Representative Pat Fallon 
P.O Box 2910, E1.312 
Austin, TX 78768-2910

Pat Fallon’s office will hold all of these letters until Brazos has refiled their projected route. Since we don’t know the exact route that they are proposing, your letters need to be more generic to encompass any option that they may be considering. For continued updates, please join our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/411524435619228/.

What’s Next?  Representatives from the Coalition will be attending the next CoServ board meeting on Thursday, October 17th at their headquarters located at 7701 S. Stemmons in Corinth to represent YOU - the 35,000 voices represented by the more than 25 HOAs involved with the West Frisco Homeowners Coalition. They will address the CoServ board with your concerns for our home investments, family's health, children's well-being, and overall negative impact on our city and the services it provides. We are energized and unwavering in our actions and will continue to be actively involved and vocal about our concerns throughout the process. We will continue to keep you posted.
The Coalition wants to thank you for your continued support. We still have a long road and will call on you with future requests for your support. We would also like to publically thank our State Representative Pat Fallon for his continued support and action, and to Senator Jane Nelson, our City Council, and Mayor Maso for their help.

Sincerely,

Kendall Meade
Chairman
West Frisco Homeowners Coalition

City of Frisco - Brazos Update
Posted on Sep 3rd, 2013
Please take a moment to read this important communication from the City of Frisco:
 
To Residents,
 
I have been contacted by scores of concerned residents seeking direction on what steps they can take to assist the City in this issue.  Many of the HOA’s affected by the Brazos routes have joined together and are actively awaiting direction.  I believe it is important to relay some information to all residents who wish to become involved.  At this point, I would recommend residents and HOA’s contact Congressman Burgess, Senator Nelson, and Representative Fallon and voice their concerns with the two proposed routes as well as encourage the southern route option, as well as west and northwest options. 
 
Please read the attached update.
 
Thank you,
 

Ben Brezina

Mail Scam - Checks Reported Stolen from Mailboxes
Posted on Jun 10th, 2013
A homeowner reported that some outgoing mail had been taken from a resident's mailbox on May 24th.  A check in one of the envelopes was apparently "washed" and then cashed at Walmart in The Colony a few days later.  Frisco PD says they are seeing a lot of this; the officer who responded to the owner's call said the officer picked up (and then personally re-delivered) hundreds of discarded letters in Griffin Parc a few months ago, where anything "promising" was already gone, leaving only that mail unlikely to be of interest to anyone with identity theft etc. in mind. 
 
If you see any suspicious behavior, please contact the Frisco Police Department at 972-292-6010 immediately!

Keep your children well
Posted on Feb 8th, 2013
Parents, teach your children well.  The weather is warming up and children are riding their bikes to school or for fun.  Drivers, please be mindful of bike riders by slowing down and coming to a full stop at the entry/exit ways of all alleys and stop signs in the community.  Also, bike riders should be extra careful, keeping in mind that many motorists are not always paying attention to vehicles other than cars in the neighborhood. 
 
BIKE RIDERS ARE EXPECTED TO FOLLOW ALL THE RULES OF TRAFFIC!  Riders must come to a full stop at all posted stop signs, and entering streets from alleyways should be done with great caution by stopping first, looking both ways, then proceeding into the street.
 
Ride for fun, but ride with caution.
