About the Neighborhood
Preston Meadow was developed between 1982 and 1990 and offers a variety of plans built by local custom builders. The houses vary in size from smaller single story designs beginning around 1800 sq. ft. up to larger two story plans around 4500 sq. ft. Lots are generously sized with multiple cul-de-sacs, creek side and city park views with scenic mature landscaping. Residents enjoy the benefits of a stable and well maintained neighborhood along with a friendly atmosphere of caring neighbors.
HOA membership is mandatory, but the annual dues are modest compared to other surrounding subdivisions ($162.45 for Preston Meadow 1 and $232.65 for Preston Meadow 2). Almost all Association expenses support the maintenance of the Master Plan Landscape Plan: the entrance at Preston Meadow and Parker, the frontage along Parker, the medians on Preston Meadow, the west sidewalk along Preston Meadow, and two lots (Association owned) on Avonshire Ln. and Tuxford Court.
The Association has a Board of up to seven officers, elected each year at the annual meeting in June. The officers are all volunteers and their activities focus on Master Plan maintenance, social outreach and community wide events, upholding neighborhood standards through compliance, stewardship of association funds, occasional legal issues and working with the City of Plano on topics of interest to our homeowners.
The Association does require advance approval of changes to the appearance of our homes. Items like putting up a new fence, painting a house, etc. should be approved in advance of the work being done. Please see the online Architectural Approval folder for approval forms. The Association encourages homeowners to read the Covenants, By-Laws and Control Bulletins, also available on this website under the Governing Documents folder, for guidelines on fences, mailboxes, solar panels, etc.
Board meetings are open to all homeowners and are usually held the first Thursday of each month at 7 PM. The location will be posted each month on the website. Announcements are sent to residents via email in advance of every meeting. Please attend the meetings. The Board is spending your dues money. We need and welcome homeowner input.
