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 Mid-February

Whiffletree HOA (WHOA) board members attended the project review meeting with City of Plano engineers and the screening wall contractor, Ratliff Hardscapes.  We learned the following from this meeting:

  • Construction of the 4 screening wall projects will commence in August 2019 and is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months with each of the 4 projects taking 3-4 months from start to finish.
  • Legacy screening wall is third in line, which means construction will likely not start until 2020.
  • 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.  This would require trash pickup in front and 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, plantings, electrical and sprinkler service.

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

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.
