WANTED: Playgroup Coordinator

We want to thank, Jennifer Dartez, who has been our volunteer as the Watters Crossing Playgroup Coordinator since 2019. She will be missed. We are now in the process of looking for a volunteer to step in as Playgroup Coordinator.

The Watters Crossing Playgroup is open to parents with children 5 and under. The playgroup meets weekly on Friday mornings at 10:30 AM. Meetings are held at the City of Allen Watters Crossing Park, located on the corner of Bel Air Drive and Newport Drive. (This can be adjusted as needed by the new coordinator). The playgroup may visit other nearby Allen parks, attend local events such as story time at the library, or there may be scheduled special activities and/or field trips. The Easter Egg Hunt (Saturday, April 8, 2023) is managed by the Playgroup Coordinator. All news and updates regarding the playgroup are communicated in the private Facebook group.

If you are interested in helping your community, please email Jennifer at playgroup@watterscrossing.com and she can explain what is involved in the position. Please remember to cc secretary@watterscrossing.com

We Need Your Help at the Trail and Creek Cleanup

Our neighborhood bike paths and creeks need our help! Lots of trash has accumulated along our bike paths and creeks. Now is the time to clear it away and refresh our beautiful neighborhood paths.

Please join us for a Watters Crossing Litter Cleanup. Invite your friends at Montgomery Farm and Connemara Crossing.

Date: Sunday, February 5, 2023

Time: 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Where: Meet at the Watters Crossing Clubhouse, 990 Bel Air Drive

Suggested clothing: Durable long pants, long sleeved shirts, shoes or hiking boots, work gloves

What to bring: We will have trash bags, but feel free to bring your own. We will have one “picker” - which must be returned - for every five people.

To Prepare: Please read the safety video HERE

Beverages will be provided at the Clubhouse.

We need everyone! We need all individuals, families, Scout troops and community organizations to step up and help. If you use the bike paths – bikers, dog walkers, families – please pitch in.

In the meantime, you can make a difference by carrying a small trash bag on some of your outings. Choose a small area and fill your bag with litter.

Together we can make our neighborhood healthier and more beautiful for ourselves and the creatures who live in the woods along the paths.

Please email Deborah Walters waltersdebbie@mac.com with your name and address if you plan on attending, or you have questions.

Did You Know?

It is a Texas state law that a vehicle cannot be parked closer to a stop sign than 30 feet. The Board of Directors and the Architectural Control Committee frequently receive complaints concerning on-street parking within Watters Crossing. Complaints include the number of cars parked together, cars parked on both sides of the road, cars parked too close to stop signs, and more. These situations cause visibility issues and there is a great concern for the children here. Please be considerate of your neighbors.

We would ask all homeowners:

  • Avoid parking directly at an intersection, alley entrance, or stop signs.
  • Avoid parking directly opposite another car on your street as it creates both blind spots and difficulty for passing vehicles.
  • Do not park in front of your neighbor’s home (this is a frequent complaint)
  • Avoid, where possible, parking on Bel Air Drive; this street is heavily traveled by pedestrians (with kids and dogs) using the Hike and Bike trail. As a main feeder street, it passes a number of areas of congestion including the Clubhouse, the Clubhouse Pool, the tennis court, three parks, and two school crossings.
  • No car can be parked in the street and covered as if in storage.
  • RVs, boats, watercraft, and trailers, can never be parked in the streets in Watters Crossing except for immediate loading and unloading; never overnight. And…Did you Know?
    While the Covenants do not prohibit on-street parking, Section 4.4 does restrict garage usage to parking of motor vehicles. Garages must be maintained to allow for the parking of the number of vehicles inside for which they were designed. Garages cannot be used for:
  • Storage
  • Exercise Areas
  • Workshops

  • If the above, or other, usage prevents the garage from housing two (or three) vehicles, it is a violation of the Covenants. Violation notices of Section 4.4 of the Covenants will be sent as violations occur.
  • Use your garage as intended and required.
  • If needed, use your driveway for parking.
  • Lastly, park in the street while being mindful of your neighbors when parking there
Trees and the Contractors who “Trim”

We would alert homeowners to use caution when selecting anyone to trim your trees. There are many groups driving the neighborhood offering the service of “tree trimming”. Please ensure you research who you are using. Yes, you can get a lower price, but results can be a problem. Some flags to look for:

  • The contractor leaves all the limbs and debris from the trimming. The City of Allen requires that all contractors trimming trees remove from the property all trimming and debris.
  • The “trimming” results in stumps
    • Limbs should be trimmed to natural joints. When stumps are left, typically the stub will rot back to the tree. This is usually after it has sent out multiple suckers. The canopy of the tree is destroyed.
    • The overall limb structure is weakened, making the tree susceptible to ice and storm damage
