Scouts and Flags
Did you know that we have a wonderful group of Scouts, Troop 336 that put out flags throughout the PID every flag holiday? There are 8 holidays where these flags our placed in the PID. The troop will go out the day before the flag holiday and put stakes in the ground in preparation for the flag placement. Then very early the next morning you may see them putting the flags in the ground. Most of the kids placing the flags are with adults. However, some of them, if they are 16 or older will take their own car and place the flags on their own. The next flag holiday will be July 4th. If you see these great kids out and about placing or removing the flags, give them a high five or a word of encouragement. They are doing a wonderful thing to help bring our community together! Remember we are all in this together and we all could use some good vibes!!
Events Fireworks Extravaganza Postponed
The PID 6 fireworks celebration is postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Parks and Rec Department is opening its parks and reservations in Phases. They are currently in Phase 1, where events can only have less than 10 people. Phase 2 begins on June 29th (this is two days after our scheduled Fireworks Celebration). Phase 2 states that events can only have less than 50 people. Due to this information and the uncertainty of the times right now, the PID 6 Board voted at the May 28th board meeting to postpone the Fireworks Celebration. Currently, they are re-scheduling for a Labor Day Celebration. The new tentative date will be Saturday, September 5th. The board will re-evaluate the COVID-19 situation in August to determine if it can be held at that time.
Thank you for understanding. Stay safe. Stay well. We are all in this together.
Map West Nile Virus Alert
Fort Worth Code Compliance was informed by Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) there has been a confirmed West Nile Virus (WNV) positive mosquito sample collected in your area near 7800 Rushmore Ct, 76137.
Itís extremely important that our community continue to work together to reduce the mosquito population by removing mosquito habitats from their property and remind their neighbors to do the same.
The most effective means of protection, even more than spraying, is to stay focused on the reduction of the mosquito population:
Continued vigilance when it comes to preventing the spread of mosquito viruses in our community is essential.
Thank you so much for all your continued efforts.

Please read the letter from Katie Ward, President – Texas Region, concerning the coronavirus COVID-19. FirstService Residential is the company that manages PID 6 property.
Message About Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Hello PID 6 Residents,
We recognize that recent news about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is concerning for many people. We are closely monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and other credible sources of information.
With the suggestion to social distance ourselves coming from these organizations, the PID 6 Advisory Board has made the decision to cancel the March Advisory Board meeting that was scheduled for Thursday, March 26. They felt it was best to follow the countryís guidelines and do their part in not spreading the virus.
CDCWHOWe encourage you to avoid rumor and speculation. We recommend that you rely on information from credible sources, like the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov and the WHO website at http://www.who.int.
Please feel free to reach out to me via email or phone if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for being a great community! Be well! Wash Your Hands! Wash Your Hands! Wash Your Hands!

We already have two installed – one at the entrance to Arcadia 1 park on Arcadia Trail and one on Park Trails Drive. If you’d like to view them in person these are two great examples of what they will look like.
MapHere is a link to a map showing the locations or possible locations of these antennas. Itís interactive so you can zoom in to see more closely where they are proposing the install them.

Details Median Trees on Basswood
It has been brought to my attention that there is some talk about the X's on the trees on Basswood. It was not my intention for those trees to be marked prior to me getting information out to the PID residents. The City Forestry Department got ahead of me on that one. I apologize for that. Here's the plan for those medians and why the trees are being removed.
The discussion of these median trees began about a year ago. The City Forestry Department and our PID Arborist determined that the current Pear trees have lived their life expectancy. The City Forestry Department doesn't allow Bradford Pears to be installed along the roadways anymore since they are fragile trees. So, having that information, the PID Landscape company came up with a plan and the PID Board approved it. There was a different plan prior to the one that was approved. Members of PGNA were present at some of these meetings and asked if the PID Board would reconsider and plant larger trees. The PID Board did that and a new plan was developed. The plan was presented to the City Forestry and was approved on June 26, 2019. The idea was to wait until after the holiday season since we do install lights in the trees at those locations. When we bid the new Holiday Decor, we considered that the trees are lit so we will still have lights in the trees in those locations next year. The layout and trees will just be different.
Our new plan will include two 65-gallon Lacey Oak trees, three 65-gallon Chinquapin Oak trees and behind the monuments will be three 45-gallon Arapaho Crape Myrtle trees. New Zoysia Sod will be installed as well.
We have asked the City Forestry Department if they could hold off on removing the pears at the Starwood median, unless they deem them unsafe. The City will be re-designing the turn lanes there and we don't want to plant new material while the area is under construction. We don't want to risk losing our new plant material.
Again, I apologize for the info getting out on Facebook before I could let everyone know. That was certainly not my intention. We strive to make sure we communicate important information as soon as possible.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Guidelines Suspicious Activity Awareness
It can be difficult to determine when to report something suspicious. People most familiar with a given environment are in the best position to determine whether or not something is out of the ordinary. Use common sense and read the guidelines.
