TimberMill Drive and Sydney Way Open
June 2, 2008
The Timbermill Shores development reached another milestone. Managing member, Rob Shaw, has announced the opening of both
Timbermill Drive and Sydney Way to the public once the dedication paperwork to the City becomes official.
This infrastructure project has overcome some initial hurdles and delays. Nonetheless, the developers added Sydney
Way (which was not part of the original scope of work) and other amenities during the process thereby completing a
majority of Phase One's infrastructure needs. "It has been a long haul and an arduous undertaking and it was more
complicated than our initial assumptions," Shaw said. Nevertheless, the stats reveal an impressive inventory of what
went into building this mixed-use community, contiguous to downtown Klamath Falls.
The infrastructure includes two bio swales that will handle a large portion of downtown Klamath Falls storm water runoff,
guaranteeing that all future discharge into Lake Ewauna will be filtered. All the sidewalks have over 9,000 lineal feet
of geothermal piping assuring that they will be clear and "slip free" all winter long. There are 2,650 feet of paved
road with curb, gutter, shared driveways and over 4000 lineal feet of sidewalks that will assist visitors and shoppers
along the future shops, restaurants and businesses. Additional geothermal heated sidewalks will connect the new roadway
to the lake and the eventual lake front trail. All dedicated to the public.
Included in this development, of course, are separate common utility services to each individual lot including fiber and
geothermal capabilities for additional sidewalks within each lot. In addition, connections for heating buildings will be
at the owner's discretion as well. TimberMill will encourage each lot owner to implement green building practices. In
addition to utilizing geothermal capabilities and cleansing storm water, TimberMill Shores has recycled the asphalt and
concrete from the old mill and therefore has created inherent green building credits to each land owner within the
development. For further information please see www.timbermillshores.com .
Phase I alone consists of 16 lots of which 12 have been sold prior to completion of any infrastructure needs. Regardless
of economic conditions, TimberMill expects to see buildings coming out of the ground toward the latter part of the next 12
months. Phase I is set and planning on Phase II has begun.
