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 year, several major projects have been in the works or completed.
Our roads are steadily being improved with quality chip sealing. The project just completed chip sealed Homestead, Old Forest, Cedar Crest, Ponderosa, and Old Settler. This accomplishment was a joint effort between Timberland Acres and Navajo County. Many, many thanks to the County for their participation. To view photos of this and other road projects click ROAD WORK PHOTOS.
Another in a series of projects to improve and modernize our water system is going on at this very moment. On several roads the aging and under sized 3” pipelines are being replaced with new 6” pipe. To see photos and to read about this project and other earlier water system work, click WATER SYSTEM WORK PHOTOS.
Four Seasons in the Mountains
Following the Board Meetings on July 26 the annual Timberland Acres Barbeque will be held at the fire substation. This promises to be a special event for all those attending. There is a printable flyer and RSVP notice for you -- just click on FUN FOR ALL to view it. We’ll see you at the feast!
At the April 26, 2014, TADWID Board Meeting, a set of new water usage rates was presented and approved. You can view and print the new contract and rates by clicking TADWID CONTRACT and RATES.
Note that the new rates are effective July 1, 2014, for water use after that date. There is an exception to this, however. The fee for a totally new service installation, currently $850, will rise to $3,000 as of November 1, 2014.
A new Timberland Acres Directory of property owners has been produced and is now available in digital format (PDF file) by contacting Nancy Bolce at 928-892-2499. A bound version ($3.00) will be available mid-July and copies will be sold and a sign-up presented at the July 26 Board Meetings.

The 2014 Road Work Complete
Roads in Timberland Acres needing attention were repaired by our Navajo County friends on Thursday, May 15, 2014. The roads involved are Juniper Ridge Road, Geronimo Lane, Old Oak Trail, Fawn Lane, and Deer Run Road. The work done included patching breaks in the chip seal and shoulder repairs.
Also, the Wildcat Trail South and North water line and road work begun this past fall were completed in late winter and both roads are open to through traffic -- and wider to boot.
Thanks to the County and to our Road Board for these valuable projects.
NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNERS!!
New Members Needed for TA Road Board
We’re sorry to say that the Timberland Acres Road Board is losing three of its very capable members. Brian Shields, Chairman, resigned as of July 10, 2014; Bob Ramsden, Vice-Chairman and Barbara Miller, Treasurer, will resign at the July 26, 2014, meeting. These folks have quietly made very significant contributions to our community over many years and we will always be grateful to them.
The major road project scheduled for 2014 has been completed (see article on this page), which means that this is a good time for others in the community to step forward and make a commitment to serve. If you’ve ever considered getting involved in the management and FUTURE of our roads, this is the perfect opportunity. All of us use these roads and appreciate the progress on them, so please do the right thing and participate alongside the others on the Board who are giving their time for all of us.
Please be aware that the Road Board requires five members, not merely three or four, in order to function smoothly and avoid the awkwardness that the Water Board struggles with by having only three. So, do the math -- several new people are needed.
For information on joining the Road Board, please contact one of the following:
Barbara Miller, 928-537-5213
Kristine Sleighter, 928-892-2396
Brian Shields will remain on the TADWID Board (Water District) as Secretary.
It’s probably a good idea to have a printed copy available at your residence.
