Construction Update

High Meadow Estates – Section 11 – Construction Update
January 9, 2023

High Meadow Development Co. is pleased to provide you with details regarding the progress of construction in Section 11 of High Meadow Estates.  Despite considerable challenges, we have made significant progress driving construction to its eventual completion.  We will be working to provide monthly updates until the completion of Section 11.

Road and Drainage construction

  • Roadside ditches have been cut and shaped.
  • Road stabilization has been completed.
  • Road base has been completed.
  • Asphalt has been delayed due to labor shortage. High Meadow Development Co. hopes to provide an ETA as to when asphalt will be scheduled in February. Currently, we are expecting to asphalt sometime mid-year.
  • Street signs will be installed after asphalt is complete.

Detention Ponds

  • Detention pond excavation is currently underway. High Meadow Development Co. is working as quickly as possible to finish the ponds. The completion of detention ponds is profoundly affected by the weather.  Changes in the schedule are likely.


  • Water is complete and pressurized. Meters can be requested from Dobbins Water.
  • Gas is complete and pressurized. Meters can be requested from EPCOR.
  • Consolidated is the communications provider. Installation of conduit was delayed due to weather and is expected to be complete by the end of January. We are waiting to get an estimate on the delivery of the fiber wire which is back ordered.
  • Power
    • Entergy is the provider for power in Section 11.
    • The conduit for power was delayed due to weather and will be complete by the end of January. Entergy is working on providing an ETA as to when Section 11 will have transformers delivered and installed.  Power will not be energized until the transformers have been installed. Recent lead times for transformers have been 10 ½ months, putting the delivery date somewhere around mid-2023. High Meadow Development Co. will provide a more accurate delivery date once provided by Entergy.

Mail Kiosk

  • The mail kiosk will not be scheduled until after asphalt is complete.


  • The boundary fence on the property line against Shady Oaks is estimated to be complete in 3-4 months.


  • Temporary culverts – Until asphalt is installed, the developer allows temporary culverts to be installed in the roadside ditches, this will allow the roadside ditches to be cut to the proper elevation once the asphalt is completed on the road. It is always the landowner’s (or their representative) responsibility to install the permanent culverts once the roads are paved.
  • Permanent culverts – permanent culverts are required to be installed on any lot that is under construction, AFTER the asphalt has been installed. If you are building on a lot that already has asphalt, a temporary culvert is not permitted.

All dates provided are a subject to change due to a variety of factors, including but not limited to: weather, material and labor availability.
