Press Release
        




Winter Watering Guidelines in effect November 1 - March 31

The following is a message from the City of Plano:

Beginning November 1, Plano residents and businesses are asked to only water a maximum of ONCE per week

2017-2018 Recommended Winter Water Guidelines
  • 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 weekly watering recommendations. 
  • If water 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.
  • Planting cool season grasses, such as rye or fescue, is discouraged. These grasses require extra water during the winter months. 
  • Excessive water runoff and watering during rain, ice or snow is prohibited. 
  • 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.
Newly installed landscapes may be granted a 30-day water variance upon approval. Variances are not required for filling pools. Request a Variance

CRIME WATCH & NEXTDOOR

    The Association has an active Crime Watch that sends alerts and information on an as needed basis. If you would like to receive these alerts, please email our crime watch coordinator to be added. 

    The board has also endorsed www.nextdoor.com as a platform for all residents of Harrington Homeplace to connect, network and share notes online.  Nextdoor.com offers a private platform which combines social networking tools with additional privacy, by limiting membership to those who live inside the Harrington Homeplace neighborhood. If you haven't already visited it, check out the Harrington Homeplace Nextdoor.com private network.

    Nextdoor.com has been endorsed by the City of Plano and Plano Police has partnered with the social network to help facilitate a virtual neighborhood watch program and help foster neighbor-to-neighbor communications.  

    Many of our residents have already signed up to nextdoor.com and are actively using it to receive crime watch alerts, community information and share information with neighbors. You are invited to join.  Please let any of our board members know and we will send you an invitation.

Hail Storm Damage Repair, Roof Replacement and Other ACC Guidelines
    Damage from the Wednesday, March 23, 2016 hail storm to the homes in our neighborhood was widespread. 

    If you haven't already done so, please complete all necessary repairs soon. Many insurance companies have a 1 year time limit to file a claim. WIth that deadline now passed, the association will be contacting the few homeowners who have not completed repairs privately seeing a timeline for completion.

    Please remember that all homes in Harrington Homeplace HOA are subject to the HOA's Covenants Conditions Restrictions and other governing documents and that most exterior modifications including roof replacement require the approval of the HOA's Architectural Control Committee. 

    To help make the process easier on everyone, the ACC has made much information available on its website.

    Please read the letter (available here) and follow the links to the referenced information.


 
Changes to the Exterior of Home or Property
Most changes to the exterior of our homes, including landscaping changes, require the prior approval of the Association's Architectural Control Committee (ACC).

If you are planning to make a change to the exterior of your home (new addition, roof, fence, paint, landscape, trees, etc.), you are required to submit an Architectural Control Committee (ACC) Change Request in order to obtain approval PRIOR to the changes.  

Other Association documents and forms can be found here.
  
For questions, email ACC@harringtonhomeplace.org
 


SPRINKLERS or other Landscaping Infrastructure Issues
Please contact Landscaping Committee if you notice any problems with the irrigation system, like broken sprinkler heads, stuck valves, etc.,  or landscape lighting in the common areas. Please provide as much detail like specific location, description of problem, date, time, etc. to facilitate troubleshooting.
