Road maintenance includes filling of pot holes (volunteers), several loads of road gravel per year spread mostly where needed. Primarily the Wallace Lake Acres road is maintained from the red gate back to the first intersection (Woodland Ave). Lakeview Drive now has a full time house at the end and will be maintained as needed.
The road is usually graded every 2 to 4 years as needed. Totally depends on its condition. Brush cutting along the roads is done by lot owner volunteers…usually in September each year.
Snow removal from driveways is the responsibility of the cottage owner.
We currently have 5 full time residents at site and luckily two have snow plow trucks and volunteer their efforts to clear to the red gate at the government road.
The full time residents who don’t have a snow plow usually hire John Fancy (out on the Fitch Lake Rd) to do the snow removal for the driveways.
Road maintenance back to Wallace Lake is handled by the Wallace Lake owners association.

Perk Tests have been performed on all lots.If a land owner goes with our suggestion to the location of the septic, its not necessary to re-dig a soil test pit.As long as we keep within 20 to 30 feet of the old test pit.
If a land owner wants an entirely different layout….and the proposed system would be much more than that distance away from the soil test pit, then yes, technically we have to do another at the time we obtain a septic permit just to confirm soils have not changed in that distance.
Proposed septics are Sloping Sand Filters.These will handle from 1 to 10 bedrooms.That should be sufficient.
It’s not necessary for a new owner to build as we have indicated around the test pit….also, we do not know if someone wants to build a 1 bedroom home or 10 bedroom home with 3 bedroom guest house and loft apartment above a garage.Also, people may wish to build in a different location…so that can change things. Our plan simple confirms that a septic system and well can fit on a lot.
Prices can be affected by gravity feed system vs pump system.A pump system alone can add $4000 to the cost.
We see typical costs in this area for a standard gravity feed system around $14k.
