Land clearing begins on Vickery Park

Dirt work has begun on the Vickery Park development in Copper Canyon.

Developers recently began clearing the land on Vickery Park, a 225-lot subdivision by Toll Brothers on the south side of FM 407.

“We’re just plowing forward,” said Rob Paul, division president at Toll Brothers.

Paul said that though the development will be built in two phases, the dirt work will first be done for the whole site.

“You want all your dirt to balance,” Paul said.

It’ll be about a year until construction begins on homes at Vickery Park, and then about another year before the first residents move in, Paul said.

Toll Brothers had presented several different proposals for Vickery Park last year before the Town Council agreed to the compromise of 225 lots. The town wanted less density in the subdivision, but the town had recognized that rising road construction costs would force the town to either approve the project or raise property taxes in 10-20 years, according to then mayor Sue Tejml.

    That would be “former” mayor Sue Tejml. When she forced this thing through, she was voted out. Nobody in Copper Canyon wants this, and most are not concerned about possibly having to pay slightly higher taxes to preserve our way of life. Our newly elected mayor came in and reduced our towns costs to the tune of several million over 5 years. Her fiduciary mismanagement has cost us dearly already. Now we’re faced with having to deal with greedy developers.
