While under the control of both developers from 2002-2014, the daily management, amenities, and all financial matters for Northridge at Piper Estates and neighboring associations Clearview at Piper Estates and Heritage at Piper Estates were co-mingled. Both developers were funding annual budget shortfalls for the associations with developer contributions. Neither developer saved any money in reserve for the associations.
Phase 1 Plat
is comprised of 38 homes and 7 common areas. These common areas include a retention pond located off Hutton Road with a fountain, a portion of the east and southeast side of the Northridge Drive retention pond, two entrance monuments, and green space.
The homes located in Phase 1 all have low-pressure sewer systems, aka “grinder pumps”. Effective January 2021, these homes will no longer be charged the additional monthly maintenance plan fee of $13.50+ on their BPU bills for the Unified Government’s maintenance plan. This fee was billed under “Water Pollution Abatement” with other fees which made up the line item. If you were one of the 5 homes that did not previously have the maintenance plan coverage, your home is now covered due to an ordinance amendment passed earlier this year. Grinder pumps do come with some usage rules and responsibilities. The Unified Government advised they would be assessing each external grinder pump and communicate with the homeowners regarding these changes. More information regarding grinder pumps may be found in the Members Only section.
Phase 2 Plat
is comprised of 131 homes and 13 common areas.

These homes will utilize our internal streets for access and the current dead ends of Merion Drive, Augusta Drive, and Northridge Drive will be turned into cul-de-sacs for the new homes.
