WPA Dues for 2018

Dues for the 2018 calendar year are $35.00.  The funds raised through collection of dues is put back into the association in the form of social activities and maintaining the appearance of the neighborhood.  We have been working with the City of Richardson Parks Department to start some new work on our median. We have been taking left-over funds and holding them for upgrades to the median through a cost sharing partnership with the city.  Please make sure you have paid the 2018 annual dues this year.  It’s less than the price of a cup of coffee or soft drink a week but it makes a big difference in the services we can provide.

Pay Dues

Of course you always have the alternative of paying by check delivered or mailed to Stacy Lawrence, our treasurer , 1 Shenandoah Place, Richardson TX 75080

WPA Labor Day Picnic 2017 – Sept 4th

We had a great time at the picnic.  There were about 45 attending from WPA.  Two of our council members attended, Scott Dunn and Steve Mitchell.  Scott gave a synopsis of what has been happening in Richardson this year.  Steve added some thoughts to his presentation.  All in all, it was quite a story.  If you didn’t know, Richardson has been named as the “4th best place to live in the country out of some 300 city’s less than 150,000 population.  You can read the whole article at COR.NET.

Scott did announce that the recent budget reviews indicated that there would be no changes in our property tax rates, but clarified there would be some tax increases as a result of property appraisal increases.  He encouraged all to challenge the property assessment if have a story to tell.   

For those that don’t remember, there was a line item in the last bond election to upgrade the Cottonwood Park playground.  The bond covers bringing the park up to a “federally compliant accessible” playground.  But the city has partnered with the Richardson East Rotary Club to raise an additional $250,000 to further enhance the playground to be fully “inclusive”.  Inclusive translates to a park that is accessible and provides realistic play opportunities to all who seek the play potential of the playground.  It addresses the needs of persons of all ages and all capabilities. Including you grand parents, who will be able to play with the grand kids on the equipment. You’ll be hearing more about this over the next few months.

Below, you’ll find a few pictures from the Labor Day Picnic.
