The wooded preserve is enjoyed through a network of trails of varying width. Some are large enough to accommodate a service vehicle for fence maintenance, while others are more intimate for foot or bike traffic. The maintenance of the trail systems will be handled along with the rest of the common areas. Trails are relatively low maintenance and they provide another opportunity for learning, recreation, and exercise. And maybe even some healing.
How many acres?
If you measure, it’s not really a hundred-acre wood like Christopher Robin had. But it’s close! Our plan calls for setting aside more than 20 acres of natural wooded wilderness. This area is the result of more than a hundred years of mother nature’s effort, and it is magnificent. In late spring, there’s a carpet of green and leaves hang on trees like curtains, creating an intimate, natural setting in which you can quite literally get lost! And these 20 acres, when combined with the surrounding treed land, all contribute to a rare suburban wilderness.
Preserved for Community Enjoyment
This natural area is not a part of the area being rezoned. However, like the rest of the common areas and amenities, this natural preserve will be owned and controlled by the property owners association, thereby insuring that the future use will be to the satisfaction of the community. Preserving these spaces for the enjoyment of others will pay dividends, even if not by the standard measure.
