All Residents of North College Park are cordially invited to the annual neighborhood meeting on May 22nd at the Jess Harben School Cafeteria, starting at 6:30 PM.
NOTE: The items on the Agenda for the meeting include the Election of the 2018-2019 Board of Directors and an Overview of our Accomplishments, including exciting Upcoming Events planned.
If you are interested in joining our North College Park Board of Directors, please attend this meeting. Our Board of Directors lead with a common purpose: To better serve the North College Park neighbor in the areas of Safety First within our community and to encourage cohesiveness and friendship with our close neighbors.
Joining the NCP Board of Directors requires attendance at our monthly meetings (approximately one hour in length) and, most importantly, having both the time and interest to participate in neighborhood events (such as July 4th celebration, Spring Egg Hunt, etc.) and annual projects (Neighborhood Trash Bash, etc.).
Our guest speaker for the evening will be: Lindsay Turman, Community Services Administrator for the City of Richardson. This is an excellent opportunity to ask all those questions you’ve had!
Delicious Quizno’s sandwiches, cookies, and drinks will be provided, as well as some great door prizes.
Don’t forget to bring some non-expired canned goods to contribute to the Food Drive for Network of Community Ministries.
Trash Bash was a big success in spite of the cold temperatures. Thanks to everyone who helped out. We took an entire pickup truck full of electronics to recycle pickup point. The group collected lots of trash out of the Glenville Park and the surrounding area.
May 4, 5 and 6. Ads will go in local papers and signs will up up in the neighborhood. Set up your own sale and find new homes for all that stuff you no longer need!
Our annual meeting is set for Tuesday, May 22 6:30-8:00PM at Jess Harben Cafeteria. Items on the agenda!
- Elect Slate of Officers for Board

The next Crime Watch Patrol class will be held in the evening on Tuesday April 17th, 2018.
Please submit your application today!!
Read below for more information or take a look at our Crime Watch Patrol recruitment video.
Our Crime Watch Patrol program asks citizens to volunteer as little as an hour a month to drive your neighborhood, reporting anything suspicious that you may see. We supply City of Richardson Crime Watch Patrol signs for each group to use on their vehicles. The continued visible presence of an active group of citizens sends the message to would be criminals in the area that their presence will be reported immediately. This risk of apprehension can be an effective deterrent to crime.
Each applicant will need to complete the online application and pass a background check before attending a Crime Watch Patrol training class. If you have any questions, contact the Crime Prevention Unit at 972-744-4955.
We have a report of an attempted breakin at a residence on Spring Valley Road on Friday January 29th around 9:00PM. This is an unusual time and the police surmise that the individual responsible was surprised by the returning residents.
Keep your vehicles and gates locked and install motion sensing lights.
Please be alert and report any suspicious activity to the police. If it seems odd or out of the ordinary, call 911 and tell them what you saw or heard.
The block party was a great success. If you missed it, please plan to catch the next one!
