Lendon of Huntsville at Jones Valley Master Plan

The master plan

Here is the master plan for the development of Lendon of Huntsville an Jones Valley.  It looks like they plan to add a new walking path on the back side of the ponds.  You could always walk there in the grass and many do.  That side of the pond was where you could often find dogs fetching their floating dog toys that their owners would toss into the pond.  There were at times lawn mower paths but really they never let that area get very high.  

Lendon of Huntsville at Jones Valley is supported by a development team comprised of four companies.  John Blue Realty4 Site IncSmith Gee Studio, and Land Innovations.  The exact roles of each company are yet a little blurred to me although it is clear that John Blue of John Blue Reality is one of the founders of this project.  The other founder is Peter Lowe of Lowe investments.  With these two powerhouses together there is well over a lifetime of experience motivating this community.

Lendon at Jones Valley Silt Fence installed

Lendon at Jones Valley

They have installed the silt fence all around the property and bordering Jones Farm Park.  It's a double row of it that seems a lot like it could be a walking path, here's a few pictures.

I assume they will be stopping work now until after Christmas.  Keep checking back for updates on the Lendon of Huntsville at Jones Valley.

The trucks have arrived at Lendon of Huntsville at Jones Valley

Here at the Lendon at Jones Valley, the trucks have all been lined up and they have marked out some of the work they will be doing.  Here are a bunch of pictures before the development of Lendon at Jones Valley began.

The Valley Bend Shopping Center is the home to stores such as Target, Dick's Sporting Goods, Barnes & Noble, and many other.  There are tons of stores and restaurants to fit all needs.

Here's some pictures of the creek/drainage ditch which will become the canal promenade.  There are many different homes in this little waterway.  We see some cool turtles, frogs, fish, and even a furry creature that we believe is a Nutria.

We await the initial "Ground Breaking" here at Lendon at Jones Valley.

Lendon of Huntsville at Jones Valley Construction begins soon!

Jones Farm Park will be getting a little smaller very soon.  All of the land around it will be turned into 250 homes of varying sizes and styles, boutique shopping, outdoor cafes, a large clubhouse that doubles as a bed and breakfast for out-of-town guests, and narrow streets to encourage walking.  I will take some pictures to document the progress.  I will start off by showing you what they are heading toward.  This will be called Lendon of Huntsville at Jones Valley, which of course we shorten to Lendon at Jones Valley.

Lendon at Jones Valley development looks like it will be pretty cool altho I will certainly miss the walks through the fields and the wildlife that we could see there regularly.  Here are a few pictures I found of the area prior to any work being done.
