The developer apologizes for the recent fiber outages and understands the importance of the fiber service.

In the last 90 days, the Southern Pointe Community has experienced 6 fiber related outages for a total of ~16.5 hours due to construction activities. While that is a 99.2 percentage of uptime, such interruptions are not what is desired for the community.

The developer was made aware that the temporary fiber trunk line recently and should have been notified earlier but was not because of a communication error, which is now remedied. After being made aware, the fiber truck line was marked and unfortunately, this weekend a lone construction crew cut the fiber line in the market area. CEO, each time, has taken the initiative to act promptly to repair. This was not a CEO issue but a construction issue. The general contractor has been notified. As each phase gets complete in the neighborhood, more resiliency will be achieved in the fiber network. In the meantime, we are quickly working to implement several processes and taken steps to minimize construction issues now.

Once again, our sincere apologies.

We have received many of your emails regarding the main entrance to the community and we have forwarded those to the developer.  Below is an update from the developer.

We completely understand that everyone is anxious to use the entrance and the new road to the community. We are aware that there are others using the road other than just the residents. We have contractors that must use the road to complete the entrance project as well as we have contractors that are working on the new home sections in the community. We have contacted our builders and requested that all contractors that are working in the Section 100 phase do not use the main entrance for access. We have also requested that for those that the main entrance is their only avenue for access to where they are working, reduce their speeds for the safety of the workers. We cannot completely barricade the road off as it must be used in some instances. We are requesting that if you see streets that have barricades or partial barricades that you do not use those roads for the time being. The development team will also look into alternate ways to help alleviate the situation but as you all know, there is no way to keep people 100% from using the road. With that being said, we will deal with the situation as best as we can. As many of you pointed out, we gave a tentative date of opening within three weeks after our last update. There were some unforeseen delays with the city and our contractor but we are optimistic to have the road officially opened by the end of September should we not encounter further delays.

Regarding the section 100 park, the sidewalks are complete and we are waiting for delivery of the park benches. Order confirmation for the playground equipment is pending as manufacturers are experiencing delays in production from labor shortages due to Covid. As mentioned previously, we will send an update on the equipment once we have a confirmation from the manufacturer and shipping timelines. Please know all updates and dates we give you are tentative. We do work hard to meet those dates. We certainly believe the completion dates are attainable when we give them to you, however there are many moving pieces and many new challenges within construction that can cause delays like we have encountered.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation as we work through this transition period

The main entrance off Highway 6 is not open for use. For the safety of the workers in the area and those attempting to travel on the unfinished road, it should not be used until it is officially opened.  We will notify the community when the road is open for use.  Thank you for respecting this request.

Southern Pointe Community;

We have received the following update from the Southern Pointe development team. If you have other questions, feel free to reach out to us and we will get back with you.

Entrance

We are thrilled with how the Community Entrance on highway 6 is coming together. We expect it to be completed in the next six weeks and the road open within the next three weeks.

Concrete Trail System

The new concrete trail system around the big detention pond in Section 100 is in and this area is being mowed and maintained. The irrigation contract has been awarded and we are waiting on the irrigator to give us a schedule for installation. Once irrigation is in, we will move forward with planting trees and bushes.

Park

Park equipment and the design of the park is in progress and when we have the park equipment finalized, we will post pictures on hoa website so residents will have an idea of what is planned. We hope to have the park equipment in by mid-November but this is very tentative date.  The last two parks we put in for other communities had over four-month delays on equipment and installation due to a backlog in production and from Covid related material and labor shortages. We will do our very best to get these installed in a timely manner, but delays have become very common in the construction industry.

New Sections Opening

Section 200 was just completed, and the lots are all currently under contract. Builders have already begun to close these lots and houses will be started soon.  Section 200 will also be the new home to “Model Home Row”. Builders will construct their new model homes and when those are complete, the existing model homes on Eldora will be closed and sold to homeowners.

Section 101 in nearing completion and provided we do not have extensive rain, these lots should be complete in three weeks.  All section 101 lots are also under contract so builders will start homes as soon as the development is complete.

Please keep in mind that there have been many delays due to the extensive amount of rain that we received for nearly two months. We are hopeful that with some dry weather, progress will speed up and timelines will be met. Our contractors are very behind due to the rain as well as labor shortages that are very common right now in many industries. We appreciate your patience and are grateful that you have chosen Southern Pointe as your home.
