Water

Lakewoods Village has two fresh water supplies; a deep well, which is the primary water source, and a back up system which includes an underground cistern that collects water flowing from the many springs on the property. The water has tested uncommonly pure. The water system includes two water storage tanks, with a combined capacity of 75,000+ gallons, capable of providing water to all existing homes and fire hydrants. A diesel-powered back-up generator stands ready to power the water pump in event of an extended electrical power outage. Contact the Lakewoods Water District for additional information.

We are within the Keno Rural Fire Protection District boundaries, and we have our own Lakewoods Fire Station, Keno Fire Department Station 4, at the intersection of Dead Indian Memorial Road Clover Creek Road. Our first group of Lakewood Village residents has recently completed their Firefighter 1 training. They are now full volunteer members of the Keno Fire Department and are ready to serve our community! Other Lakewoods Village property owners have also begun firefighter training. But we need more members! All Lakewoods Village residents are encouraged to join to receive emergency medical and/or fire fighting training.

Homeowner's Association Dues

The Lakewood's Homeowner's Association dues are currently $12.50 per month, payable annually. While we have kept common areas to a minimum and strive to keep expenses under control, these dues are subject to change in order to maintain the common area improvements and provide necessary services to homeowners. There is also a Snow Removal Assessment to help assist in the cost of snow removal. Contact Lakewoods Owners Association for current Assessment and Dues amount.

Emergency Power

While our electrical power lines are underground, they connect to overhead lines near Lake of the Woods. If we lose power during storm, self-starting, propane gas-fired back-up generators can provide immediate power for lighting and heating needs for your home. Our builder can give you more information.

Lakewoods Village children can attend Keno Elementary in Keno, Henley Middle school or Henley High School, both of which are in Klamath Falls.

Klamath County and Jackson County Road Departments keep Dead Indian Memorial Road and Highway 140 clear of snow. Clover Creek Road is also open year round. The Lakewoods Owners Association contracts with a private company to plow the interior roads of Lakewoods. A Snow Removal Assessment has been established to assist in paying for this removal. Snow on individual driveways and properties should be removed (or arranged to be removed) by the property owner.

Weather

Lakewoods Village living offers four season of beautiful variety! Summer high temperatures are 15 to 20 degrees cooler than those in the Rogue Valley with cool evening breezes. Winters are relatively mild with daytime highs in the 40's and lows seldom dipping below 20 degrees. Average snowfall is 3 to 6 feet; perfect for winter sports!

Wildlife

As can be expected due to our wilderness location, wildlife abounds. Thousands of chipmunks and birds of all kinds scurry around. Raccoons and deer often wander through Lakewoods Village. Present in the area but seldom seen are elk, badger and the occasional cougar and bear.

Mail Service

There are mailbox clusters situated at several locations throughout Lakewoods Village for U.S. Mail delivery. Property owners should contact the Lakewoods Owners Association to receive their mailbox key.

What about the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R's)?

To preserve and enhance property values and our pristine mountain environment; we have adopted a set of CC&R's under the Oregon Planned Community Act. View a copy of the CC&R's here.

PLEASE NOTE: THE FOLLOWING ARE DISCUSSIONS OF CERTAIN CC&R ITEMS THAT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO PROSPECTIVE HOMEOWNERS AND ARE PRESENTED HERE FOR GENERAL INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY; THEY DO NOT SUPERSEDE THE ACTUAL CC&R'S THAT HAVE BEEN RECORDED IN KLAMATH COUNTY.

Architectural Review Board: "The Architectural Review Board must first approve all drawings and specifications in writing before any construction is commenced."

Exterior Siding: "All exterior siding shall be log construction or wood of the type and quality to accept a transparent stain, and to be finished with a semi-transparent, or transparent stain. All stains must be of natural colors that blend in with the surrounding forest area."These items are to be approved by the Architectural Review Board."

Roofs: "The main roof structure shall be at a minimum pitch of 8 by 12. All roofing shall be a weathering steel roofing material only."This roofing material is ideal for the snows that we receive at this altitude. It takes two to three years for the steel to rust to a beautiful cinnamon color and it will result in a pleasant and uniform look throughout Lakewoods Village.

Building Heights: "Besides daylight basements, no building shall exceed 2-1/2 stories or 40 feet in height, whichever is less."Exceptions may be permitted for lots adjacent to the National Forest boundaries at the sole discretion of the Architectural Review Board.

Landscaping: Landscaping features and plant materials are to be consistent with the natural setting, and must first be approved by the Architectural Review Board. A list of permitted plant material is available to all homeowners.

Pets, Livestock, Horses: "No animals, livestock or poultry of any kind shall be raised or bred or kept on any Lot except that dogs, cats or other household pets may be kept, but they must be restrained and not allowed to run at large in the subdivision. Horses are not allowed to be kept on any lot other than a maintained equestrian facility." There has been some interest in creating an equestrian facility on or near the Utility Building lot, and the Owners Association, at their sole discretion, may establish such a facility in the future.
