In keeping with the theme of creating a “kinder-gentler” HOA the Board of Directors have proposed revisions to the Asbel Estates Community Standards. Homeowners have 90 days (until Feb 1st) to review and submit comments for possible incorporation into the revised standards.
The full text of the proposed revisions can be viewed within the Documents section of the website (click the Documents link on the menu bar at the top of the page).
Attention homeowners, this past spring your board of directors came to an agreement with M/I Homes on the purchase of 4.84 acres of property adjacent to our playground area. The property was zoned to fit approximately 40 town-home units at a value of $480,000.00. The board negotiated a final asking price of $80,000.00 for the HOA. This purchase allowed us to prevent further development of our area and increased our common property for future recreational use. We the board received an overwhelming response from our homeowners who felt it was necessary to prevent this property from being over developed.
Thank you from your board of directors.
Developers plan to build a new subdivision on land formerly owned by Lester Dairy Farm, off U.S. 41 in Land O’ Lakes. The vacant land is the last significant undeveloped parcel along a corridor filled with new residential communities including Asbel Creek and Lakeshore Ranch.
To the north, Florida Citrus Investors owns more than 300 acres slated for townhouses. Across the highway the “new town” of Connerton is under development on about 8,000 acres of a former cattle ranch.
On June 24, Pasco County’s Development Review Committee gave unanimous approval to the residential community proposed by NVR Inc., the owner and developer of the dairy farm property. The Pasco County Commission must still give its approval.
Plans are to build nearly 490 single-family homes on about 300 acres, located on the west side of U.S. 41 and about a mile south of State Road 52.
Developers will be responsible for building the first two lanes of the Bulloch Road extension, which would bisect the site and connect with the portion of Bulloch within Asbel Creek.
They also would build a portion of a proposed east/west “vision” road, with access off U.S. 41. The roadwork within the subdivision is part of Pasco County’s long-range transportation efforts to increase neighborhood connectivity, and relieve traffic volume on heavily traveled highways such as U.S. 41.
Today the PASCO Public Works – Traffic Operations Division (TOD) changed the speed limit in the Commons from 20MPH to 25 MPH. Reason: According to TOD the 2012 Asbel Speed study that changed Asbel Creek from 30MPH to 25MPH also showed that the 85% speed in the Commons was 31.1 to 32.2MPH. County Commissioners approved 25MPH for both areas. Asbel Street and the Meadows were not included in the 2012 study.
Pasco County Utilities will be upgrading the neighborhood’s sewer pump station soon. Click here for additional details regarding the upgrade.
