High Meadow Preserve – Construction Update
December 5, 2022

High Meadow Development Co. is pleased to provide details regarding progress of construction in High Meadow Preserve.  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 High Meadow Preserve.

Road and Drainage Construction

  • Asphalt is complete.
  • Roadside ditches and road signs have been delayed due to weather and labor/material shortage.
  • Roadside ditches are substantially complete. There will be a general touch up of the entire community after the riprap is installed in the drainage easements.
  • Residents are now allowed to sod their ditches up to the road as is their responsibility as stated in the deed restrictions.

Detention Ponds

  • Excavation of the Live Oak pond will be substantially complete by the end of January. An ETA on Holly Creek Bend pond will be provided when it can be determined. Pond creation is subject to change based on weather, availability of labor, etc.

    • Gas has been completed and pressurized.
    • Please contact EPCOR to schedule yard line and meter installation.
  • Power
    • Power is complete and San Bernard Electrical Cooperative is the power provider. Please contact them to schedule power services.
  • Communications
    • AT&T is the provider for phone and internet.
    • Wire is being installed. It’s been pulled, and AT&T is connecting to the pedestals. The main line, however, is not yet connected. AT&T is estimating 1 month until service is available.

Amenities

  • Pet Waystations
    • The developer will install pet waystations along the walking trail when that is complete. The POA will be responsible for maintaining said stations after installation including but not limited to removing waste and replenishing bags.
  • Mail Kiosk
    • The mail kiosk site is under construction. We are currently scheduled to pour concrete in the next two weeks.

NOTES

  • 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.
  • Please keep in mind, all schedule related items are estimated and are subject to change due to a variety of issues, including but not limited to, weather, supply chain issues, labor shortages, material shortages, etc.
