Community Garage Sale
Saturday, May 23rd
7 am to 2 pm

The Kings Ridge HOA Social Committee will host a
Neighborhood Garage Sale on Saturday, May 23 from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. 

Each participating neighbor must obtain a permit from the City of Plano. Please use this link to access the information: http://egov.plano.gov/garagesales/.

On May 23, the permit must be visibly displayed at each participating property.

The HOA Social Committee contacted our assigned Plano Police crime prevention officer, Mark Dawson, to gather some safety tips. Office Dawson recommends the following for participants:

• At least 3 people should guard the items for sale at all times.
• One adult should be dedicated to guarding the cash box.
• One adult should be inside the home at all times.
• Under no circumstance should a stranger be allowed into your home during the garage sale.
• The most common request from visitors is to allow one of their children to use your bathroom. This should not be allowed

Neighbors who have already confirmed their plans to participate in the garage sale have contacted the Social Committee. If you wish to participate, please send an email to Social Chair Ayu Fitzgerald, ayufitzgerald@ebby.com, with your home address and mobile phone number. The final list will be delivered to all participants the day before the event.

Please print one copy and display it with your items to help guide the buyers to other participating properties.

For your reference:

• Signs announcing the event will be displayed at each HOA entrance.
• Details will be posted on our HOA website.
• The Social Committee will continue to announce the event on our Nextdoor account and it will post the event on the Frisco/Plano/The Colony Garage Sale Facebook Group.

For all other details, please send an email to ayufitzgerald@ebby.com.

Since there will be more people in our neighborhood May 23, please be aware of your surroundings during the neighborhood garage sale. Help make this a productive and safe event by staying watchful for your neighbors, yourselves and children riding their bikes, walking or playing in yards.

New Board of Directors Elected, Roles Discerned

During the Kings Ridge HOA annual meeting on April 21, residents elected three new members to the board of directors, joining two incumbent residents who begin their second year of a two-year term.

On April 29, during an open meeting call, the five board members discerned roles for the new board.

Paul Nolte will serve as president, and begins his second year term.
Bill Kula will serve as vice president, and begins his second year term.
Glenn Barlow will serve as secretary in his first year on the board.
Greg Urech will serve as treasurer in his first year on the board.
Ward Olgreen will serve as assistant treasurer and member at large, and was re-elected for a two-year term after serving a one-year term.

The current board, with representatives living in each of the HOA’s three phases, is grateful for the tremendous service provided by outgoing board president Brent Rice and treasurer Brian Kowalchyk, both of whom did not run for re-election. The new board will serve the needs of the entire neighborhood, and work closely with committee chairs and volunteers, property Management Company FirstService Residential and vendors.

The new board welcomes the interest of all neighbors to offer their gift of time and talent to help the neighborhood in a variety of ways.

The next regularly scheduled board of directors meeting will be on Tuesday, May 19 at Parr Library at 7 pm. Many neighbors have already expressed interest in serving on various committees. Others who want to serve on the landscaping, social, safety or communications committee, or have interest in serving as a neighborhood block captain to keep residents on a specific street informed, apprised and engaged in HOA matters, can express their interest to property manager Kristen Denby at Kristen.Denby@fsresidential.com.

VICTORY against INAPPROPRIATE LAND USE in Plano!

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.
