Wondering what a new construction project is? Heard a rumor about something happening in the City? We have created a new hot button on the Cedar Hills’ website that may answer those burning questions! The City Office receives numerous phone calls when construction starts on a new project or residents aren’t sure about what may be happening in the community. Although most new happenings have been planned and discussed for months or years, residents may not be aware until they see the dirt moving.

What’s going on at the Bayhill Drive roundabout by the golf course?
You may begin to notice that the grass at this roundabout is dying. We are preparing to remove the sod to make way for a brand-new drought tolerant design. Our Beautification Committee and Parks Staff will be working on this project for the next several months. To reduce costs, some of the labor will be done by volunteers. Please be patient throughout this process as the area will look a bit rough until it’s completion. We feel the change will be worth the effort in the water savings and improved look.

- UTOPIA Fiber Project – It is coming!
On December 7, 2021, the City Council agreed to contract with UTOPIA for the construction and maintenance of a fiber-to-the-home project. We are excited to begin working with UTOPIA on this project and look forward to having this service in our community. At this point, the financing has been finalized, and staff is meeting with the construction companies to begin work in our community. The construction process will occur primarily in public utility easements, otherwise known as a PUE. The PUE is typically the first ten feet of a property, beginning at the property line. The PUE allows public utility providers to install necessary infrastructure to deliver services to residents; this includes general municipal services as well as telecommunications, power, and fiber.
As part of the construction process, it is necessary to run conduit and fiber throughout the City. Crews will notify residents a few days before construction begins in their yard; contact information will be provided at that time for any questions or concerns. Should there be any issues during the construction process, it will be necessary to reach out to the contact information provided in the work notice. Additionally, crews will Blue Stake properties prior to any work being performed. We anticipate that once construction begins, crews will be in Cedar Hills for about a year before the project is completed. Please see the UTOPIA website for more detailed information on the construction process, cost of service, and other FAQs.
- Golf Short Course
The improvements to the Cedar Hills Golf Club are looking great! The 6-hole short course is growing in well and we will be exciting to open that for play next season. The hitting bays are ready for use and the practice green should be able to be used within the next few weeks. We are looking forward to having our customers enjoy these beautiful new facilities.
- Harvey Well Refurbishment Project
The City is set to begin a project to refurbish the Harvey Well at Heritage Park. The project will consist of drilling the existing well approximately three hundred feet deeper into the aquifer. Harvey Well was constructed in 1967 as an irrigation well and was later converted into a culinary well. As demand has increased, the well has struggled to keep up. When the well is consistently run, the static water level of the aquifer drops and reduces the effectiveness of the well to keep up with consumption. The City has been working with a team of engineers at Hansen, Allen, and Luce to develop a plan to remedy this issue. On June 14, the City Council awarded a bid for drilling to Water Well Services and the work is set to begin in the middle of August. It is anticipated that the project will run for 6-8 months; during this time, neighbors may experience noise, dust, and other inconveniences associated with construction.
