Thank you for touring Inspiration
We at Huffines Communities realize purchasing a new home is a significant investment and we believe buyers should be informed when making this important decision. Below is some additional information to help you when deciding to purchase your home in Inspiration.
EXTRA TERRITORIAL JURISDICTION (ETJ)
Inspiration is located in Collin County, but also within the ETJ of three separate cities and towns; The Town of St Paul, City of Wylie and City of Lucas. No City taxes are collected for property located within an ETJ. Public safety for Police Services, road maintenance and parks are provided by either the CCWCID or Collin County for this community. Public safety for Fire and EMS are provided by the City of Wylie per a seperate agreement with the HOA.
COLLIN COUNTY WATER CONTROL AND IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT (CCWCID)
Inspiration is in Collin County Water Control and Improvement District No. 3 (CCWCID), which is a special governmental entity created by the State of Texas. The main functions are to provide water, sewage, drainage, streets and other services within its boundaries. The CCWCID provides miles of off-site water and sewer utilities and other major infrastructure needed for the community. Due to the costs of creating a high quality community, Inspiration would not be possible without the CCWCID.
WATER AND SEWER SERVICES (WYLIE NE SUD)
Wylie North East Special Utility District (Wylie NE SUD) is the retail service provider for sewer and water within Inspiration and some of the surrounding areas. Wylie NE SUD was created to provide retail water to customers in Collin County. Wylie NE SUD continues to service customers in communities like Seis Lagos, the Town of St. Paul and now Inspiration. Wylie NE SUD water is supplied by North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) as a wholesale provider. NTMWD supplies water to most of the towns and cities within Collin County, including the Cities of Wylie and Lucas.
SCHOOLS (WYLIE ISD)
Inspiration is located within the highly acclaimed Wylie Independent School District (Wylie ISD) boundaries. The new on-site elementary school, George W. Bush Elementary, is scheduled to open in Fall 2016 for the school year.
INSPIRATION RESIDENTIAL ASSOCIATION, INC (HOA)
Homeowner Association dues are $980.00 a year and are assessed semi-annually ($490 ea) on January 1 and July 1. The dues pay for landscape, maintenance, repairs in common areas, amenities and social activities. You can visit the HOA website here.
The annual property tax bill from CCWCID replaces a City tax. The CCWCID (District) tax is necessary to pay for construction and general maintenance of facilities and streets, operation expenses and bond debt. District rates will vary over time as the District’s operating and debt service costs are shared by more homeowners. The current District rate at Inspiration is $1.00 per $100 of the assessed property value (for comparison, the 2016 City of Wylie tax rate is $0.848900). Because this District is located within three separate ETJs, it is unlikely in the future to be annexed into a Town or City. The 2016 combined tax rate for Inspiration residents is $2.929617 per $100 of assessed property value.
