This Subdivision is an Under Developed Subdivision that was laid out several years ago. Electric is provided by Otero County Electric Co-Op and power is in the subdivision but not to each property yet. For some of these lots, Solar would be the best method for power. Solar has gotten very inexpensive and has become very reliable. With LED lighting, it now takes a much smaller unit to power a home. Water is provided by Timberon Water District but Water lines are not to every lot yet.  Sewage would be by septic: New Mexico does generally require at least 3/4 of an acre to issue a permit to install a standard septic system. If you are looking for a place to camp or park an RV, this would not affect you. This Subdivision is Zoned Residential. There are no time limits to build, and no requirement to make you build. Taxes are less than $10 per year per lot.

NOTE: Camping is allowed and RV's and Travel Trailers can be used as a temporary residence for up to 30 days each year if not connected to water lines or a septic system. If they are connected, you can stay for up to 180 days per year. Mobile Homes are allowed in Units 13, 15 and 17. Horses are allowed in Units 12, 13 and 17.
