New Development at Metric/Howard

While driving north of Scofield Farms, you may have noticed a sign for a new development at the northeast corner of Metric Boulevard and Howard Lane. According to the signage, this is the future site of the Scofield Farms Meadows gated community to be built by Idea Homes. This community will include 49 homes ranging in size from 1828 to 2400 square feet and priced at $240,000 and up. We will share more information as it becomes available – for the moment, you can look here to view the official website.

Pool House Roof To Be Repaired – Monday, May 13

As a result of recent storm damage, the roof at the pool house is scheduled to be repaired on Monday, May 13.   The pool will be closed during the repairs. The work is scheduled to be completed that same afternoon, but residents should be aware that the pool may not open at 5 pm (as usual for Mondays) if the work is not yet complete.  There is also a possibility that the work could continue into Tuesday.  Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to enjoying all the many improvements at the pool area (with more to come) this summer!
