2017-2018 PCNHA Membership Drive

It’s that time of year!  Our Membership Drive for Pitman Creek North is kicking off and we hope you will join our voluntary HOA and receive one of our beautiful new ‘blue jay’ member signs for your yard.

Your dues of $50 cover the operating cost of keeping our 491-home subdivision looking great.  This includes electricity at the entrance, water and sprinkler/drip systems, landscape crews and new plants for the 8 area gardens that decorate our area.  Plus, we do seasonal decorations, and a couple of parties every year for all residents.  You get a lot for that contribution, and we thank you!

If you’d like to mail in your PCNHA dues, please print a copy of the membership form, fill in the information and mail it to the HOA.

Spring/Summer 2017 Watering Guidelines

April 1 – October 31, 2017

Beginning April 1, Plano residents and businesses are asked to only water a maximum of twice per week.

Only water when needed. You may not need to water if rain is in the forecast. Subscribe to WaterMyYard.org for weekly watering recommendations.

It is best not to water with sprinklers between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. as these are the hottest hours of the day.

Foundations and landscaping, including grass, shrubs and trees, may be watered for up to 2 hours any day by a hand-held hose or soaker hose. Low-flow drip irrigation systems may operate as needed.

A variance may be requested to water new landscapes for up to 30 days. Instructions are available at plano.gov/variances. Variances are not required for filling pools.

*As HOA watering involves watering of their common areas and in many cases the City of Plano right of way (which has no address), it was decided that all HOA watering and addresses ending in zero would follow an EVEN address watering schedule.

NOTICE:  Pitman Creek North neighborhood’s trash and recycling collection days will be changing effective January 2017:
  • Trash and yard trimmings will now be collected on Mondays (no longer on Thursdays)
  • Recycling will be collected on Mondays during the Purple Week on the map

Winter 2016-17 – Winter Watering Guidelines

November 1, 2016 – March 31, 2017 Beginning November 1, Plano residents and businesses are asked to only water a maximum of once per week. View the Winter Watering Guidelines. If watering is needed, set your sprinklers to run when the temperature is warmer, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., to avoid icing of streets and sidewalks. Turn off automatic sprinklers now that cooler weather has arrived. Most grasses go dormant until spring, which reduces your lawn’s need for water. Subscribe to WaterMyYard.org for customized weekly watering recommendations. Planting cool season grasses, such as rye or fescue, is discouraged. These … Continue reading
