The main road will be realigned and widened to provide safer and more convenient access to homes and services. Extensive utility upgrades include new domestic water service, converting individual propane service to domestic gas, and converting septic systems to community sewer service, new reclaimed water lines, and a new sewer lift station. The project also includes undergrounding power and communications services. Electrical service panels at each residence will be replaced, new energy efficient appliances will be installed, and new driveways will be provided at each residence.
