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.
BULLETIN -- MANY HAPPENINGS AT THE WATER DISTRICT
. Billing Coordinator Position Open -- Act Quickly if You’re Interested
. Online Billing Capabilities Being Added
The position of Timberland Acres Water District Billing Coordinator is now open and the Board is accepting bids immediately. This offer is for an independent contractor, not a salaried person. The position will be advertised in the White Mountain Independent for the next two weeks, ending November 11. The bids will be reviewed by the Board and a final decision will be made at a Special Board Meeting November 15.
A very detailed description of the position is on this website. It is important that this be accessed by anyone interested. You can find a printable copy by clicking BILLING COORDINATOR INFORMATION.
Please submit your bid so that it is received prior to November 15, 2014, to: Timberland Acres, P. O. Box 1531, Show Low, AZ, 85902.
Next, due to a growing interest by many customers in online billing capabilities, a series of features will be implemented soon, in several steps. Do note that if you have no interest in getting into cyberspace with your water bills, the current process will not be impaired in any way by these additions. Here are some of the features being planned:
1. Bills can be received via your email. Many are doing this now.
2. Payments can be made through the Timberland Acres website; your own financial information will have been provided confidentially to NexCheck, the payment module of our billing software, EasyBill32.
3. You can choose to pay by check, debit, or E-check. All of your personal credit and banking information will be protected by NexCheck, and will not be entered on the Timberland Acres website or shared with Timberland Acres in any way.
4. NEXCHECK will accept the payment, record it, and transfer the credit and tracking information to the TADWID bank account.
As mentioned above, this will be implemented in steps. The target for completion of the setup is the January billing. Stay tuned for more information on this and for what you’ll need to do to sign up.
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.
It’s probably a good idea to have a printed copy available at your residence.
