Woodpile

Timber Lakes Owners: The woodpile is open for wood and tree branches/limbs only. At the end of the summer, we chip the woodpile for residents of Timber Lakes. The chips are spread in many areas of our community. It is critical that we do not spread weed seeds. All weeds, construction materials, and nonorganic material should be taken to the Wasatch County Landfill on Hwy 189 (1891 W 3000 South) in Heber City. Each property owner receives three free trips each year. Check your Wasatch County Solid Waste Invoice for the timing this year. You need to present your invoice in order to receive your free waster transfer. This year we will test separating probable firewood from rotten wood and limbs/branches. We hope this will keep the pile more manageable. Look for the signs, and be sure to fill in the forms for your wood clearing efforts with the forms provided on the entry signs. Jeff Meierhofer for the TLPOA Board

Woodpile to Close

We thank all owners who have worked to clear dead wood from your lots. We have collected a substantial amount of wood in the pile. Lance Excavating will be in Timber Lakes with their tub grinder on September 24, 2012, to chip the pile. Therefore, we are announcing we will close the woodpile for the year on Sunday, September 23, 2012. If you choose to remove wood from your lot after September 23, please take it out of the subdivision to dispose of it yourself. We do not allow any location to be used for wood collection during the fall and winter. Also, as a reminder, any time you spend, or pay someone to spend, on clearing wood and undergrowth from your lot to make it less combustible will assist us in obtaining a grant from state agencies with which we can address fire breaks and other fire safety issues that affect common areas and Timber Lakes as a whole. Please turn your hours spent in to Martha at the office. Contact her with any questions. Finally, thank you all for being careful and diligent regarding fire safety. Please continue to safeguard the mountain during this extremely dry summer. Fire danger in Timber Lakes continues to be very high and we appreciate the care everyone is taking to prevent fire. Thank you. Mike Durr Timber Lakes POA Common Areas, Fire and Government Relations

Trails

Hi Fellow Owners: We just wanted to let you know that there are several hiking/snowshoe/x-country ski trails in the common areas that are open this winter. The Moose Trail is located at the upper mountain (see map) and has a north and south trail.  There is good parking area and a kiosk with signs. The Jones Lake Trail is located mid-mountain, just off Lake Pines Drive (see map).  You may have noticed the piles of red rock and some road equipment parked in this lot.  This is also the location of the parking to access this common area. A trail starts at the parking lot and goes up through the trees to the south, and then over the dam and around Jones Lake. Please enjoy and use the trails. Remember to stay on the trails and respect private property.  The common area boundaries are marked with pink flags. If you are not in the common area, you are on private property that belongs to someone else! We will resume more trail work in spring.  In the meantime, use and enjoy the new trails in Timber Lakes. If you would like to volunteer to help build trails, let me know. Also, if you are a Facebook member, there is a Timber Lakes Residents page that you may want to join as a way to stay connected with some of the folks/happenings on the mountain. I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday and a very merry new year! Barb Meierhofer For the Common Area Committee
