Preston Community Association Announcements 2/5/2016
Posted on Feb 5th, 2016 Comments (0)
Preston Community Association Announcements from your HOA manager and Board of Directors, 2/5/2016:
The Month of February is starting out feeling more like Spring than Winter, but the Association wanted to remind those who still have Christmas holiday decorations up that they have to be removed. Courtesy notices will be sent to addresses that have holiday decorations, so if you usually use your back door but perhaps decorated your front door for the holidays, you might want to make a quick check for anything still in view.
Neighborhood Watch: Your Preston Community Neighborhood Watch is in need of a coordinator who can keep communication flowing between the Association’s numerous neighborhoods and volunteers, as well as lead the charge in generating more volunteer interest throughout the PCA community. For more information, please contact your PCA Manager at

Morrisville Parkway Closure Starting February 8th
Posted on Jan 25th, 2016
According to the NCDOT, Morrisville Parkway will be closed between Crabtree Crossing and Bristol Creek for about six months beginning February 8th.
Details of the project are listed below:
First:   The contractor will construct the last section of the RR tracks on the west side of the bridge.  Because of this, the road from Crabtree Crossing Parkway to Bristol Creek will be closed. Businesses between Crabtree Crossing and Bristol Creek will have access via Bristol Creek .
Finally:  Morrisville Parkway will continue to be closed, but business will be accessed by traveling on Morrisville Parkway beyond Crabtree Crossing (this will be the only traffic allowed through the area). During this time, the remainder of the roadwork between the business driveways and Bristol Creek will be completed.
PCA will continue to keep you informed of any communication from the NCDOT.  If you have any questions or comments about this project, please contact Maira Ibarra of NCDOT. Her contact information is below.

Sprucing up Your Landscaping? You'll Want to read This
Posted on Oct 29th, 2015 Comments (0)
Autumn is lovely, especially with the changing of the leaves in Preston Community.
What is not so lovely is when they fall - especially if you do not know what your Town's guidelines are for leaf collection.
PCA follows the local ordinances regarding leaves, so please be sure to read the attached links to your community (Cary / Morrisville). This is especially important, as while Town of Cary has a curbside loose leaf collection (which does not start until November 9th, 2015); Morrisville does not have such a program yet in place. 
Also, while this might also be a good time to spruce up the yard and perhaps remove a few trees, there is a reason Preston Community Association asks you to submit an ARC application for tree removal - your local ordinance might require you obtain a permit to remove trees from your property. The Town fines could be hefty for that, so why not check ahead of time and save the hassle of a letter from your local Town compliance officer?
If you have any questions, please contact your HOA manager at
Google Fiber in Preston Community Association
Posted on Oct 16th, 2015 Comments (0)
Its likely you've seen Google Fiber being installed along some of the city rights-of-way in Preston Community over the last 2 months. Most likely what you've seen as been as a result of Google Fiber having agreements with local municipalities.
Within other areas of Preston Community Association, the Association had to enter into an agreement for Google Fiber to be installed. Homeowners can log in and view this agreement in the homeowner section of this website.
If you have questions about Google Fiber, their company welcomes hearing from you and has provided the following contact information:
Construction phone line: 877-454-6959
Customer support line: 866-777-7550
Email or chat:
A definitive timeline for installation from Google has not yet been provided to PCA, but once one has been received, we'll post to this site for your information.
Playground Grand Opening a Fun and Successful Event!
Posted on Sep 29th, 2015 Comments (0)
Rain on Saturday caused the Grand Opening of the PCA playground to be postponed until the following afternoon.
Light rain even stuck around for a majority of Sunday, but that didn't dampen the spirits of the many residents who came to see the improvements made over the summer to the community's playground on Creek Park drive.
It certainly helped that the weather broke clear for most of the 2 hours of celebration Sunday afternoon. While break in the rain lifted spirits, Mother Nature also had some assistance in the good will department  -  no matter what their age, attendees got to channel their inner child and enjoy the ice cream truck with its variety of goodies.
Many parents who attended were excited about the park and the kids were happy to play not only on the new play structure which features multiple slides, but also to swing on the new swing set. All one needed to do was see the expressions on the kids faces to know the neighborhood has been enhanced in a very positive way.
While the official opening is now a part of the past; the opportunity for fun will last for years into the future.

Home Break-in / Burgulary In Preston Ponds
Posted on Sep 23rd, 2015 Comments (0)
Dear Preston Community Association residents:

Last night, 9.22.15, there was a burglary at approx. 9PM in Preston Ponds .

The homeowner was returning home with his children, made a left into his driveway, opened the garage door and saw a person in his garage with red sneakers who ran into house and presumably out the back door. No one at home prior to homeowner arrival.

Homeowner noticed a Silver Acura TL at the nearby stop sign. The Silver Acura TL turned right on Creek Park made a U turn came back and presumably picked up the one who broke into the home. The police dog lost the scent near Bridle Creek and Creek Park. Nearby neighbors called 911 and Police responded within minutes. The burglars had been in the house and went through drawers in the master bedroom. Police took finger prints.

Apparently the burglars gained entrance by breaking into the garage via a side door which was kicked in which triggered the home security alarm. That is all that is known now. 
Please see the enclosed sample photos of an Acura TL , as we do not know the year or have the license plate:

 Considering the distraction caused by the number of contractors in the area as well as many other reasons that cars drive through Preston, please make a note to secure your home as best you can. Also remember that the Police from Cary and Morrisville offer free security evaluations of your home (by appointment).

Crime Prevention Assessments: The Police Department offers crime prevention assessments to Town of Cary residents and businesses at no cost.  These assessments provide crime prevention tips and recommendations on how to remedy possible security vulnerabilities.  If interested, contact Town of Cary's Community Services Officer at (919) 469-4324 and a Crime Prevention Specialist will visit your home or business to conduct this assessment.

Morrisville residents can request a home safety evaluation from Town of Morrisville police by filling out the form at the Town of Morrisville link below :
Preston Community Association also has a Neighborhood Watch program. This is an excellent opportunity for neighbors to look out for one another. For more information please contact your PCA Vice President, Vince Thai, at:
