The Hidden Meadows Beautification Committee is pleased to announce that longtime Hidden Meadows resident and landscape professional Bill Schnetz has agreed to join our efforts and will be providing design ideas and guidance throughout the process. Bill brings a number of years of experience to the table and has already been instrumental in developing a macro view for the project.
The most important priority for the moment is tree maintenance. The trees are a foundational element in the median landscape, and they’ve been somewhat neglected over the years. There is quite a bit of pruning and other tree work to be done to get them in shape, both aesthetically and from a health and fire safety standpoint.
In the meantime, we have also been having great conversations with the golf course, as well as the owners of the property at the corner of Mountain Meadow and Hidden Meadow roads. While the scope of the Foundation’s project only covers the medians, it is very exciting to be developing a collaborative relationship with other vested parties to ensure that all areas of Hidden Meadows look beautiful as we progress forward.
Speaking of which, a big thank you also goes out to Sylvester and his maintenance crew at Boulder Oaks Golf Course. His team has recently been busy addressing some clean up of the areas alongside the road and we really appreciate their efforts.
We will keep you posted as we move through the various steps of the Median Beautification Project. The project will be done in phases as funds are available. Keep in mind, the median project is dependent on donations to the Hidden Meadows Community Foundation. Donations are accepted at any time throughout the year. If you would like to help us achieve our mission, please feel free to donate by sending a check to 9856 Canyon Country Lane or at www.HiddenMeadowsNews.com and click on the “Donate” button.
