Winter Social (Napoli's Italian Restaurant)

Whiffletree Winter Social was held at Napoli’s Italian Restaurant and was attended by 102 Whiffletree neighbors.  In addition to the great food, everyone had a great time meeting neighbors.  Thanks to Karen Slott, Social Chairperson, as well as the management and team at Napoli’s for a fantastic evening.


Survey Results From Our Neighborhood

Plano Neighborhood Services distributed a survey to several neighborhoods in Plano to assess current views about living in these neighborhoods. Whiffletree was one of the neighborhoods that participated in the survey. We want to thank the 111 Whiffletree residents that responded to the survey. Your inputs are valued.

CLICK HERE to see the survey results. The survey highlighted that there are many special people in Whiffletree that care about their neighbors and their community. The survey also highlighted that we can do more to engage with our neighbors. The Whiffletree HOA leadership is reviewing the survey results and will develop an action plan to improve upon our communication and engagement. Again, thanks for taking the time to respond to the survey and for your inputs.


Legacy Screening Wall Replacement Update - Projected to Start in April

The project to replace the screening wall along Legacy Drive is getting close.  It is now scheduled to start in April although weather could delay its start.

During the construction, we can expect the following to occur:

  • One lane of westbound Legacy will be closed during the day.
  • The sidewalk along Legacy will be closed.
  • The sidewalk and alley will be completely renovated.
  • The alleys along Legacy will be impacted for 3-4 weeks by wall reconstruction and alley repaving. This will limit access to the alley for the residents facing Legacy and will require trash pickup in front as well as limit access to garages via the alley.  The construction company plans to advise effected residents either with direct communication or by leaving a flyer on the door informing them when/how the alley will be impacted.

When the wall is completed, the contractor will remediate the entrances, including electrical and sprinkler service. The City of Plano Project Manager instructed Whiffletree HOA (WHOA) to obtain bid to replace the plantings at the Harvey and Marchman entrances for review and reimbursement by the City of Plano.

WHOA board has been following this project for several years and is pleased that it is finally getting close. We will continue to monitor this project closely to ensure that the impacted residents and the entrances are handled as committed.

Winner of Best Neighborhood Award - Platinum Level

Whiffletree is a 2016 “Plano BEST Neighborhoods,” Platinum Award recipient! We were formally recognized by the Mayor and the Plano City Council at their meeting on December 12, 2016. Platinum is the highest recognition level,  and only four Plano neighborhoods received it.  Of the four, we are the only one with a non-mandatory (voluntary) Home Owners Association.

This is a very proud moment for Whiffletree V, VI, VII and we want you to share in the excitement!  For more information about the “BEST” program and the award presentation visit www.plano.gov/2893/BEST-Neighborhoods-Designation.

July 4 Parade and Picnic

Whiffletree celebrated 4th of July with its annual parade and picnic. As in previous years, we were honored by Plano Fire and Police personnel who led the parade around the neighborhood. Following the parade, we recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang the National Anthem in recognition of the momentous events 243 years ago leading to the formation of the USA.

The picnic was held at the pavilion at Prairie Meadow Park where the Hamburger Man served a fantastic lunch to 163 neighbors and a number of Plano Police Officers.

Special thanks to Karen Slott, Whiffletree HOA Social Committee Chairperson, for all her work organizing the event with support from our great HOA board members, Tom Slott for his outstanding photography work, the Hamburger Man for a great lunch, Plano Fire and Police for leading the parade, and of course, all the Whiffletree neighbors who participated in this annual event.
