Stacy Road Update The project had several construction setbacks to slow things down this winter. The later winter brought considerable rain cutting into working days. CoServ gas lines have also been an issue on the section west of Angel Pkwy, as potential conflicts arose with underground drainage piping. TxDOT and CoServ have been working to make adjustments as needed to correct any potential conflicts and the project should be moving forward. In the meantime, the contractor, Ed Bell, has been working on left turning lanes and other intersection work waiting on this long section to be released for the pouring of the main lanes.
The Town of Fairview Police Department will participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) prescription drug take-back day on Saturday, April 28 at Fire Station #1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The focus of the event is on removing potentially dangerous substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets.
The DEA coordinates a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to establish a safe collection site for expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceuticals, controlled and non-controlled substances as well as over-the-counter medications.
Participants may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in the original container. The depositor should ensure the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage. Intra-venous solutions, injectables and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
This one-day effort will bring national focus to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. This program is anonymous and all efforts will be made to protect the anonymity of individuals disposing of medications. Fairview Fire Station #1 is located at 500 S. State Highway 5.

Mayor’s Note In the last issue of Fairview Town News, I discussed the process that the Council has developed to respond to our residents as we move forward with planning for the capital needs of the Town. The process included establishing a group of residents to assist
in the process. The committee, the Community Resource Group (CRG), has been activated with representatives from across the community. The CRG consists of the following members:
The CRG process was initiated in February. The CRG was asked to complete a preliminary survey about the last bond election. The CRG was then divided into two focus groups and meetings were held with the guidance of a facilitator to further discuss the results of the survey and the bond election process. The facilitator, an outside consultant hired by the Town, prepared a report on the meetings and it was presented to the Town Council at the March 6 Town Council meeting. A copy of the survey results and the report from the facilitator are available on the Town website at www. fairviewtexas.org. Future updates will also be added to the website as we continue to go through this process. I will also periodically be providing our residents with information in this publication on the process as we go through it. I and the Town Council want to thank the CRG members for their commitment to this process and to the Town. I look forward to providing the next update and please feel free to reach out to me directly, if you have questions.
I’ll see you around town! Darion

“Theatre has changed my life in so many ways it’s hard to pick just one thing. Theatre has taught me to be confident at school and everywhere else in life. I used to be so shy and now I can talk to anyone. It’s taught me to be brave. It was scary to be on stage at first, but now I feel like I can do anything. The greatest thing theatre has given me is the most amazing group of friends. They’re like family. I still have friends from my very first show and now I’m in my 30th show. My theatre family just keeps getting bigger. I feel like I am home when I’m at the theatre. My next show is Fiddler On The Roof and I play Chava. I love her! She is so passionate about what she wants in life and she doesn’t let what other people think change that about her. I like to think I’m like that too.”

Fairview was well represented at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo with two contestants placing in the top five in their respective age divisions in the Equine IQ competition. In January, the teenagers competed in the knowledge-based contest offered by The Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show in conjunction with Texas A&M University.
Sarah Muckelroy, a 7th grade student at Willow Springs Middle School, placed third in the Intermediate Division for students between the age of 11 and 13, winning a Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo vest and ribbon. This was Muckelroy’s first equine knowledge-based competition, and she competed against 28 other youth to secure the win.
The competition features generous scholarships for youth ages 14-18 competing in the upper age division. Caitlynn Teel, an 11th grade homeschool student, finished second out of 60 competitors in the Senior Division. With the win, Teel was awarded a $10,000 scholarship toward an undergraduate degree
at the university of her choice, a vest, and a ribbon.
Equine IQ is open to youth residing in Texas, so placing in the top five is a huge accomplishment. The contest features multiple components including a written exam, a test over identification stations, and hands-on scenarios with horses. Additionally, the top five Senior- level contestants randomly draw a speech topic on an issue facing
the equine industry and have ten minutes to prepare a speech that they deliver to judges and the audience in the final round of the competition.
The contest covers equine anatomy and physiology, health, management, equipment. Muckelroy and Teel, both members of Collin County 4-H, spend their Thursday evenings preparing for Equine IQ and other knowledge-based competitions.
Both of these teens are passionate about acquiring horse knowledge and devote time outside of 4-H practices to learn as much as they can about the animals they love. Muckelroy and Teel were proud to represent Collin County 4-H and Fairview, Texas!
Fairview Teens Win at Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo

The goal of the Public Art Committee is to foster an appreciation for artistic expression in the Town. The committee started off by commissioning the sculpture in front of Fire Station #2, the mural in the community room of the station and the sculpture in the fountain by Veteran’s Park at Town Hall. These led to the committee curating quarterly revolving art exhibits in the foyer of Town Hall.
Committee chair, Karen Karnuta says, “The committee felt they could make more of an impact on the art scene with a larger event.” Thus the Fairview Art Show was born.
The show features art, photography and sculptures from students as young as kindergarten up to adults. Karnuta
explained, “Because of the subjective nature of art, it can be produced and enjoyed on different levels by everyone. We want to celebrate the artistic passion in our community with this annual show.”
Committee member Beth McInerney shared her thoughts on the show, “The art show is a ‘live’ event that feeds my human soul as it touches on so many intrinsic values. It combines creativity, enthusiasm, passion, talent, opportunity and community. Viewers and participants have their senses engaged. I love that the show has the opportunity for people of all ages to submit their work.”
The artwork will be judged by local artist Cathy Cotter-Smith. Ms. Smith is currently an art professor at Collin College and holds degrees in art education and
painting/drawing. She is also a member of the Southwestern Watercolor Society.
Cash Awards (totaling up to $2,000) will be awarded to select winners, in both the adult art and photography divisions, including a $500 grand prize. In addition, all cash award winning pieces will be displayed in the Fairview Town Hall foyer for one year. Medals will be given to winners in all student divisions. The public is also invited to vote for the People’s Choice award. Voting will take place during the public viewing on Saturday, April 28. Prizes and medals will be awarded during a reception on Sunday, April 29.

As spring is here, often times, it brings severe weather conditions. Now is a good time to make sure everyone in your family is prepared for this weather. Preparations should include a safety plan for your family and emergency supplies, such as water, flashlights with fresh batteries, a working cell phone with back up batteries or a pre-charged power supply and a weather radio. More information on preparations can be found at knowhat2do.com. Click on “SEVERE WEATHER” to learn more about severe weather. You can also click on “Make a Plan” to create your own personal plan and learn how to build an emergency supply kit.
One of the key areas of preparation is to make sure you have the ability to receive alerts about approaching severe weather. There are a variety of processes and systems that can be used to notify you of severe weather.
Outdoor Warning Systems These systems consist of pole-
mounted speakers or sirens that are used to alert people who are outside of a building of a pending severe event. These systems are activated by the local public safety authorities based on specific criteria. The Fairview system is activated by the Allen Public Safety (APS) dispatchers, as Fairview does not have our own dispatchers or other personnel at our Town Hall on a 24-hour schedule. The Fairview and Allen systems are provided by the same manufacturer, so it is very easy for APS to activate our system as they are activating theirs.…
