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.

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 : PROPERTY OWNERS!!
Rusty Britt Appointed Road Board Chair
Two Additional New Members Appointed
We’re sorry to say that the Timberland Acres Road Board has lost three of its very capable members. Brian Shields, Chairman, resigned as of July 10, 2014; Bob Ramsden, Vice-Chairman and Barbara Miller, Treasurer, resigned 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.
At the July 26 meeting, Rusty Britt stepped forward to take over the position of the Acting-Chairman. Rusty and his wife, Doreen, have been owners and part-time residents of TA since the mid-1990’s and now have become full-time residents. Rusty’s background fits in beautifully with our needs. He is a 30-year veteran of the city government of Peoria, AZ, and specialized in road system projects, the functioning and maintenance of the system, and project and personnel management. Welcome Rusty and Doreen, we’re very glad to have you here!
Two other positions were filled at the Special Meeting held August 2, 2014. Rick Bowers was appointed as Vice-Chairman. Rick will be working closely with Rusty, both getting familiar with the workings of the Road District, and identifying its current and future needs. Sandra Kanz-Metz, a long-time resident of Timberland Acres, was appointed Culvert/Driveway Consultant and Grantor of Permits.
At the same time, Kristine Sleighter moved from the Culvert Consultant position into the key role of Acting-Treasurer.
Welcome to the new Board -- they deserve have our support and gratitude for their contributions to Timberland Acres.
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.
