Located in the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona, Timberland Acres is a community of 500 lots, most being at least an acre in size. The development occupies one square mile.
Residents come from various walks of life and age groups. Some are working people with families, plus there are plenty of very active retirees.
The area is located seven miles west of Show Low, south of state Highway 260. The highly scenic trip between Timberland Acres and the Phoenix area takes roughly three hours.

Road and Water Projects Completed in 2013 -- Photos
Over this past several years, some major projects have been completed in Timberland Acres.
Our roads are steadily being improved with quality chip sealing thanks to a joint effort between Timber-land Acres and Navajo County. Many, many thanks to the County for their participation. To view photos of this and other projects click ROAD WORK PHOTOS.
To improve and modernize our water system, several aging and under sized 3” pipelines are have been replaced with new 6” pipe. To see photos and to read about this and other earlier water system work, click WATER SYSTEM WORK PHOTOS.
Road Repairs Update - 7/25/15
On June 4 and 5, road repairs were begun on Bear Track Lane and on Navajo Trail. A 350 ton load of chip seal base material was applied to those two roads. However, completion has been delayed due to the discovery of a very outdated underground water connection at Navajo Trail and Bear Track Lane. Work is now underway to completely upgrade and replace that section of the water system.
Please avoid these roads as much as possible while this project is going on.
Deluge Hits TA -- Causes Road Damage
On Sunday, July 5, 2015, two inches of rain fell on Timberland Acres in about two hours. Many roads were damaged from the storm and overflowing ditches; especially hard hit were the unpaved roads. Our Road Board and our contractor, Cameron Crandell, are working diligently to repair the damage; it is expected that the restoration will take a few more weeks to complete.
So far, blocked culverts and ditches have been cleared of debris, and much of the rock and other debris that spilled onto the roads has been removed. Now, roads are being graded as necessary. Once this phase of the recovery is done fresh gravel will be distributed.
All residents are asked to be patient, and above all cautious, while this work is going on.
”nexBillPay”, THE ONLINE BILLING SYSTEM, UP AND RUNNING!
An online system for the management of your TADWID billing was implemented earlier this year and is up and running successfully. For those of you who haven’t investigated this system, it will allow you to pay your water bill online through the website using any of several options. Payments will be made through a secure and confidential software system known as “nexBillPay”. A more complete explanation can be found on the Bill Pay page on the website.
Use of this system is entirely optional. If you choose to remain with the billing system in place through November 20, 2014, you can certainly do that. For those of you who want to go “digital” with the water billing, this is for you!

BOARD HIGHLIGHTS -- PLEASE READ
Vandalism Occurs to Water Pipes - Several of the water pipes awaiting installation have recently been damaged and rendered unusable by vandals. The pipes have a rubber seal permanently molded inside. These seals have been slashed. The criminal activity has been reported to the authorities and an active investigation is underway. It is believed that this action was done by residents, or associates of residents, and we are asked to be diligent and by all means . . . .
“IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!”
Road Board Tax Levy - The $70,000 tax levy that was approved by TA residents registered in Navajo County in 2012 will need another voter approval in 2017. Without this levy, the tax revenue would be a mere $29,072, certainly not enough to maintain our roads satisfactorily for a year. The chip sealing that we have been able to do was made possible by the tax levy. To see/print a fact sheet and history of this levy, click on ROAD TAX LEVY INFO.
