Kings Ridge HOA to Partner With Plano Police to Shine Light on
Community Safety During National Night Out on Oct. 6

Neighborhood Has Hosted City’s Largest
HOA Event on NNO the Past Five Years

The Kings Ridge Homeowners Association,, will partner with the Plano Police Department and be joined by civic leaders to showcase safety and community at its annual National Night Out parade and neighborhood event on Tuesday, October 6.

Plano’s westernmost HOA in Denton County has commemorated National Night Out for 13 years. Its residents are seeking to host the city’s largest homeowner-sponsored NNO event for the sixth straight year with a goal of more than 325 attendees. The HOA’s annual NNO parade begins at 6:20 p.m. followed by VIP speakers and a community event on one of its greenbelts.

This year, Kings Ridge will be joined by Plano Police chief Greg Rushin and Plano Fire Department officials, Plano city councilmen Ron Kelley and Tom Harrison, Lewisville ISD Superintendent Dr. Kevin Rogers, LISD board of trustee president Trisha Sheffield and the Hebron High School drum line. Officials will deliver brief comments between 6:45 and 7 p.m.

CRIME FIGHTING IN ACTION – This month, a report of a suspicious man canvassing several HOAs including Kings Ridge was swiftly communicated by the HOA to multiple neighborhoods in Plano and The Colony using social media tools. Plano Police were provided photos and video of the suspicious person and his car. Within one week, the individual was arrested for burglary.

“Kings Ridge residents work in partnership with law enforcement agencies to help make the community a safe and enjoyable place to live, play and work. National Night Out helps to reinforce the importance of being an active participant in thwarting crime by knowing your neighbors and your surroundings,” said HOA board president Paul Nolte. “As our neighborhood has matured, so too has our ability to help prevent crime from happening by working together as a team.”

The Kings Ridge commemoration of National Night Out features a kids, adults and K-9 parade followed by a community gathering with food and drinks in a common area greenbelt park situated in the middle of the neighborhood’s three phases comprised of almost 600 homes.

Oct. 6 Evening Agenda:
* 6:20 p.m. – Parade begins at 6913 Crystal Falls (the parade route travels north on Kings Manor) led by a fire engine from Plano Fire station 13.

* 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. — Neighborhood gathering with food and drinks, music and children’s bounce houses across from 6917 Traceland Dr. with remarks by city and education leaders between 6:45 and 7 p.m. (The nearest intersection is Spring Creek Parkway and Kings Manor located one-half mile south of highway 121.)

Following the parade, prizes will be awarded for the best decorated bike, best decorated wagon, best decorated stroller, funniest entry, most creative entry, most elaborate entry and best costumed pet.
The National Association of Town Watch (NATW),, hosts the annual event nationally and uses National Night Out as a way to bring neighbors and crime fighters together. Celebrating its 32nd year, National Night Out involves more than 38 million people and more than 16,000 communities in the U.S., U.S. territories, Canada and military bases according to the NATW. In recent years, the City of Plano has been nationally recognized by the NATW and other organizations for its National Night Out program and overall safety for cities with more than 250,000 people.

I want to introduce myself as your new Association Manager, Anna Carrette. I'm excited to be managing such a beautiful and amazing community as Kings Ridge.

I have been managing homeowner associations for several years and also worked for Marriott Hotels for 10 years at the management level. My background has helped me in further understanding the importance of delivering upon high levels of service and financial results. On a personal note, I have been married for 19 years and have two daughters, ages 7 and 15.

I look forward to working closely with the Kings Ridge HOA board of directors and committee leaders in identifying the needs of the community, and to set goals that achieve neighborhood needs for years to come.

Residents who spot issues of concern in the neighborhood can contact me for assistance or to pose questions, including questions or requests involving landscaping and irrigation. I can be reached at, or by phone at my direct line of 214-451-5429.

Our coalition, made up of hundreds of concerned stakeholders involving several HOAs,
is gratified and humbled after earning VICTORY April 27 at the Plano municipal center. Thank you for your help.

After heated debate, the Plano City Council DENIED the applicant's special use permit request for a proposed mid-rise residential development sandwiched between a sea of commercial development at the northeast corner of ... View more Spring Creek Parkway and Headquarters, just west of the future Toyota HQ.

Since the Planning & Zoning Commission already denied the request involving Plano Zoning Case 2014-47, a supermajority vote from council was needed, meaning three votes in opposition to kill the project. We're particularly appreciative to council members
Lissa Smith, Ben Harris and Pat Miner for opposing the project.

The coalition theme -- Inappropriate Land Use -- was shown on a sea of signs in council chambers Monday night. How refreshing to see about 75 signs held high in opposition AFTER 10:30 p.m. since Zoning Case 2014-47 was the last of 12 items on the council agenda.

We respect the service of all council members. We support affordable housing, but only when the proposed development is an appropriate use of land. This project was not.

Let's use this one campaign as an opportunity to stay involved, informed and engaged knowing engaged citizens helps make great cities. There will be many other challenges to confront as we work together to make Plano, plus Denton and Collin counties, a great place to live, learn, work and play. Early voting began April 27 at Parr Library leading up to Saturday, May 9 election day. Please exercise your right to vote this election season!

Dear Kings Ridge Homeowners,

As we continue to maintain our beautifully landscaped community, we will be performing a pre-emergent process this Wednesday and Thursday, January 14th and 15th. This is a weed control treatment that will be sprayed in the common areas only.

With this treatment, you may see a faint green dye that is simply colored with food coloring for the Brickman Landscaping techs to help them track their work.

Please be sure to keep your pets off the grassy areas until the pre-emergent spray has dried, which is typically 4 hours. This is a non-toxic substance, and you will see the dye dissipate with the next rain.
