Fence UPDATES

Fence Update

THOSE OF US THAT WALK THE SUGAR MILL PATHWAYS ALONG OUR BAYOUS AND DRAINAGE DITCHES, HAVE SEEN CONTINUOUS PROGRESS ON BOTH THE UPGRADES AND REPLACEMENT OF THE MAJORITY OF OUR WOOD FENCES.  

First, the HOA Board and fence committee thanks all our residents that cooperated so well with the fence construction team in so many ways such as trimming, large shrub/tree removal, open back yards (short time as possible!) and helpful, constructive feedback when the inevitable issues came up.

As a reminder of progress, The final construction will be along the Burney Road section and when done will complete the first phase.  Our plans are to move immediately to the 7th street pool area which will then complete all non-entrance wood fencing. As was explained in the yellow flyer of several months ago (available on the HOA web site), the next phases will be replacement of most of the concrete fencing with a new style of entrance fence.  Much more on this in our next newsletter.

To recap the important considerations of this large project, the final design along with the selection of the best contractor was a deliberate process that has resulted in what we hope will be a decades lifetime of a beautiful and appropriate fence.  Also a design that can be repaired easily and with low cost when necessary.  As such, the "bones" of the fence have a number of upgrades such as 4x6 posts, 3 foot deep double bag concrete post holes, extending warranty post savers, weed eater guards, 2x12 rot boards, and cedar top trims.  

Thanks again for all the cooperation and especially the great feedback from our homeowners - very much appreciated.


Sugar Mill Friends
The construction of the wood fence behind the Family Church for Stage 1 is finished, except for staining.  Go by and take a look.

The next phase of the build is the walkway between 927 and 923 Green Belt. It should be completed this evening 7/6. This walkway should look a bit different than our existing walkways. Please go by and take a look and let us know what you think.
