| HAPPY WINTER TO ALL. Stay warm, it's going to get cold up here. |
Thursday, March 5, 2015
Road Thoughts: Our Community has just come through some extreme weather during the past two weeks. The roads have been serviced and remain in good shape.
Following the winter weather there will be soft areas of mud and potholes that will develop. Be patient! The ground will need to dry; as it dries gravel will rise to the surface correcting many of the issues you will observe.
The spring budget will include building the Primary and Secondary roads with additional gravel. This will be accomplished according to plan as the weather improves and the condition of the road is best for the work to be performed.
Please feel free to contact the members of the RC with any concerns you may observe on the roads. These will be placed on the watch list and addressed according the road plan.
YOU CAN HELP BY DRIVING SLOWLY ON THE ROAD AND, WHEN EQUIPPED, USE ALL WHEEL DRIVE.

FEB. 20, 2015 MAIL DELIVERY ALERT
Weather has made scraping roads necessary. Large equipment cannot avoid pushing snow that blocks access to mail boxes. Mail carriers may not be able to reach some boxes to deliver mail. It is the owners responsibility to have cleared around personal mail boxes to provide access to the carriers in all seasons, whether snow, rocks or weeds are the obstruction. Otherwise, at this time, be patient for the snow to melt. Anytime that you need mail assistance, you may let the post office know that you wish mail to be left at the POA office, 218 Doe Run, especially packages that don't fit into your mail box. Please, your support for this effort to deliver mail more promptly will be appreciated. Thank You!
Established in 1995, Buck Mountain is a private, gated, residential community located in western Wilkes County, North Carolina. Just 7 highway miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, our homes are blessed with outstanding mountain views and/or beautiful cozy valleys.
Everything from comfortable cozy cabins to larger mountain homes can be found within the community. Encompassing approximately 2,800 acres with over 600 individual tracts, Buck Mountain's rural atmosphere encourages a slower lifestyle. Our community has it all - the conveniences of modern suburbia and the peace and quiet of country living.
Parks and Recreation
Hiking trails abound on Buck Mountain. There is a beautiful waterfall with walking trails leading to the top and calm pools for resting weary feet on a hot day. ATV trails run throughout the community. Only property owners may use ATVs in Buck Mountain. There is a pond for fishing (catch and release), a Pavilion for community or private get togethers, and a Memorial Garden to simply sit and enjoy the mountain atmosphere. Beautiful views are around every bend.
