Newest Neighborhood Update

Just updating what little information I have. The pool and clubhouse are still "on track" to open May 2014. (honestly though, the way things go around here, I wouldn't expect it to open until early June, but you never know) We he will have junior size olympic pool, with lanes I believe, that morphs into an almost 3 leaf clover type of shape. There will be zero entry area in one of the "clover leaf" entrances and even a loopy slide. The drawings are up at the model home. Technically, things could still change, but what they have are lamented and that's what they are going with right now. The club house will have full kitchen, entertainment area, game room, fitness room, and meeting room (from what we were told. Again, could change, but these are plans of right now). There will be play ground equipment up by the pool as well. There is talk of adding some kind of courts as well. But they were unsure if they would be basketball, volleyball, or something else. Up by the elementary school, they are beginning the clearing of the smaller lots, the 50 foot lots (originally slated for patio homes, but no one can tell me if that is what is definitely what's going in there or not). And across from the club house, by the new entrance is going to be the new model home "park". 2014 fees are to be $400 since we only have the clubhouse 1/2 a year. In 2015 our HOA dues will be $800 a year to be collected quarterly ($200 a quarter). Looking forward to the pool and clubhouse, as well as welcoming new neighbors! =D

Neighborhood News

This post is simply for those who live in my development.

This is the latest information I have on what is to be done over the course of the next year or so, as I have been told and understand it.

1.  Development on Phase 3 has started.  That is right behind me.  This is the next section to open in here.  Lots are already pre-selling.  Behind me are going to be 50 and 60 foot lots.  Drake Mill is to be extended as well and circle back here.  The Drake Mill part (from understanding) will have 70 foot lots with restrictions on which house models can be built upon them.

2.  Last I heard, this neighborhood is to have somewhere around 1200 homes in it by completion.  And that is not for years to come yet.  But something to think about for sure.  (this info came from an outside source)

3.  Our club is scheduled to be open toward the end of this year, "by Christmas".  There are no plans for a weight room at this time.  But there will be a kitchen and place to have parties.

4.  The pools (you heard that right..plural) are scheduled to open Next May (2014).  We are set to have a zero entry kiddie pool, a pool with a slide, and a jr. olympic size pool (3 pools).  One of the pools is suppose to have underwater seating around the edge, but I am unclear on which one.  Pictures of these should be made available at the model home for us to see in March.

5.  We are getting a playground!  Not sure of the equipment yet.  But I was told we would be getting one.  So for those of us the truck it up to the school to play, we won't need to anymore (unless you play disc golf).

Nothing has been decided on sports fields at this time.

This is the latest I have on our development!  Hope you all are enjoying your homes!
