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, County, and our Road Board for these valuable projects.

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.
”nexBillPay”, THE ONLINE BILLING SYSTEM, READY TO GO!
As has been discussed at Board Meetings and announced on this website, we have implemented an online system for the management of your TADWID billing. This system 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!
