New Update – November 16, 2021


Completed trails near Telge Road

NWHCMUD #5 kicked off the construction of over 5 miles of trails in 2020 as the first phase of implementing several planned trail projects. These trails include three pedestrian bridges as well as an undercrossing at Faulkey Gully to facilitate safe crossing of pedestrians under Spring Cypress Road. Once complete, this first phase will connect 10 area neighborhoods and create a much needed amenity for District residents. The District is also currently working on an extension of the Phase 1 trails along Faulkey Gully to connect both east and west from the newly installed Faulkey Gully Bridge. Wayfinding signage and trail nodes will be installed in the next few months.

In May 2021 the District will hold an election fo authorize $30,000,000 in park bonds to develop and construct more trails and amenities throughout the District.


Construction of the Phase 1 trails project is progressing. Two bridges have been installed, one across Faulkey Gully near Lakes of Northpointe and another one across a drainage channel in Fairwood. Sidewalk segments are being completed along Spring Cypress Road although there are a few gaps where the contractor is coordinating with private utility companies for adjustments. Over the next several weeks the contractor will continue with walks in Indian Trails and into Lakes of Northpointe. Signage and trail nodes are being coordinated.
