Building started about ten years ago, in a cleared area of the forest. There are just over one hundred houses built with the intention of maintaining as much of the forest as possible. Most roads, in the sub-division have conservation corners where natural habitat is encouraged by the careful management of natural plants and trees. There are over 1.7 miles of walking trails through the forest, maintained by community volunteers, through the Lake Powell Forest Home Owners’ Association and a small area of forest, outside of the environmental protected area that is maintained as a community park.
There are several groups that meet regularly such as the Book Club, Wine Tasting Evenings, Movie Club and Dine Around Club.
There is a residents only area in this website, for which a general residents’ user name and password are required for access:
Residents – Where important or just useful information can be found such as Board Minutes, other Board of Director information and Official Documents.
This website is run independently of the Home Owners’ Association.Read more »

From the HOA “In order to perform maintenance on the walking trails, piles of crushed stone will be placed at a couple of trailhead entrances along Queen Bishop Lane. These piles of stone will likely cover small portions of the sidewalks for a relatively short period of time until the stone is distributed to the trails. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
