To: Timber Lakes Property Owners
We are pleased to announce that on Friday, April 12, 2013, the Board brought to a close the issues related to the closing of Blue Spruce from Cottonwood up to Green Briar. The Association has purchased lot 5 in plat 22. This allows us to meet the requirements set by Wasatch County to obtain a release from the “Stop Work” order the County placed on Blue Spruce on Sept 28, 2009. The County required us to obtain a release from the lot 5 owners and the only viable option those owners gave us was to purchase the lot.
The Association has hired Epic Engineering to head up the construction project on Blue Spruce, which includes the section between Cottonwood and Green Briar, including Cut Off Road (sometimes referred to as Short Cut Road).
The Board hopes to obtain the release from the County this month and then Epic can place the project out to bid. We estimate the bid process will take 4-6 weeks to complete. At the conclusion of the bidding, we will review and award the bid as soon as possible. If we do not run into any additional complications the project will be completed this summer.
To summarize the project, we will complete the dirt fill on some sections of the road, grading and compacting the finished surface. This section of Blue Spruce, for now, will be surfaced with gravel, as will Cut Off Road,.
The Board continues to work on issues related to lower Blue Spruce road (near the beaver ponds) as we are still debating who owns the rights to the road (see my previous posting).
I will keep you updated as we move forward with addressing the other road issues the Association still faces with the representative of the developer.
As always, the Board members are happy to discuss any concerns you may have. Your next opportunity to participate in the process is Wednesday, April 17, 2013 in Heber City. Our meeting schedules are posted on the website.
Thanks for your support during the four years we have struggled to find a solution to the closing of Blue Spruce.
For the TLPOA Board of Directors,
Gary M. Hume, President
