This is an informal survey not intended to be taken as a “vote" but rather as a guide for our Board to gauge what residents might want to see happen in the near future.

Redundant Well Progress
Our well is getting a must needed safety and security face lift starting in the fall of 2020! The project will take some time to fully complete, with the majority of the work being done in 2021 and early 2022. Next steps will include pump house upgrades and repairs, updating the water level management alert system and providing backup systems in the event of a power failure. For more information please visit the WSD page on this website.
CCR Update Latest
Among the many projects we are plugging through is the modernization of the Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CCRs) documents. They were first established as the area was developed in 1978 and have since been amended as more homes were added and new issues arose. What has resulted is a package of documents that are hard to read and even harder to decipher! Some of you might not have even received complete CCRs when you purchased your house.
Now that the area is established, we want to take this opportunity to clean up the documents, make sure owners have a complete copy and get them properly recorded with Flathead County. To accomplish this task we need our help. Your input is crucial so that these legal documents reflect the way that we want to live in the Meadow Hills HOA. In preparation for this update, we wanted to make sure that each of you was informed as to what to expect and what is expected from each household as we get things organized.
Step 1: Check out the existing CCRs on the Meadow Hills HOA/Water Sewer District (WSD) website.
Step 2: In early 2021, look for a letter from the HOA that includes the proposed changes to simplify and clarify the CCRs. It is our hope that the changes will be straightforward and will simply clarify what is already in the document with minimal changes.
(We are currently HERE!) Step 3: After you have had a chance to look at the proposed changes we will ask you to visit an electronic survey to do an informal vote about if you would vote to pass the changes or if you would vote no and why. From there the board will go back to the drawing board with the feedback and we’ll repeat step 2 until we feel like we’ll have enough support to pass the changes. Our board by-laws state that ⅔ of our neighborhood must be in support of changes for them to happen.
Step 4: We will collect signatures to adopt the updated CCRs and get this process closed up!

Dern/W. Springcreek Roundabout
The Montana Department of Transportation determined that the intersection of West Springcreek, Dern Road and Highway 2 West is too dangerous and a roundabout will replace this intersection. For those who were having trouble understanding what the new roundabout will look like, here are displays of a rendering with how W. Springcreek will change:
As you can see this will also change W. Springcreek and access from our neighborhood to the new roundabout. Additionally, the new roadway will be just a bit wider than it is currently. Today, the existing roadway width on W. Springcreek is two, 12–foot travel lanes with no shoulders (24-foot total). The new surfacing width will be two, 12–foot lanes with 2-foot shoulders (28-foot total). The new surfacing width tapers down to match the existing width just south of Meadow Hills Rd. Our HOA is actively pursuing a pedestrian access path to the roundabout that would facilitate safer access to the Rails to Trails path that borders Highway 2 West.
For those wanting regular updates you can text the word DERNSPRING to the number 41411 to get weekly updates.
