Our neighborhood’s perimeter fence is being constructed! A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Monday, December 10 with local sponsors and dignitaries. Over 21 businesses contributed a total of $600,000 to help fund the fence. Exterior lot owners are contributing $500 each as well. Thank you to each sponsor, as well as RebuildNorth Bay and Supervisor James Gore for their incredible support of our neighborhood on this project! Construction is slated for completion by March 2019.
A perimeter fence is building designed and constructed along the exterior border of Mark West and Larkield Estates – along Mark West Springs Road and Old Redwood Highway. NorthBay Rebuild Foundation is coordinating the volunteer project, with funds being donated by the private sector. The total project cost is almost $500,000 with labor donated by Habitat for Humanity. The project has been delayed due to a funding shortfall. During this time, the team has also been closing out the details on the scope of the project, finalizing a list of materials required for the job, and working with suppliers to reserve material. As of right now, the material supply is identified and the suppliers are ready to deliver to support the project.
Jennifer with Rebuild North Bay Foundation has done an incredible job looking into and identifying additional funding sources. The current funding situation looks like this:
The proposal from NorthBay Rebuild is for each homeowner along the perimeter to contribute $500 towards the fence project. We will also be asking the rest of the owners in both neighborhoods to donate the same if they can. These fences are not just for each individual homeowner, but help define the neighborhood for all residents.
Donations can be made at the Habitat donation website. Please include the following information in the memo field.

The funding shortfall has been closed by 1/2 since a month ago and the team can see a path forward to complete the funding. At this point the team is confident enough to kick off the first phase of the project, which is shown below in an overhead view. The team will be getting material scheduled for delivery and will start Phase 1 no later than the end of November. Construction will take up to 6 weeks, depending on weather. Phase 2 will kick off immediately after phase one, with weather being the biggest factor on timeline.
Also, the team has decided to go with 3′ of lattice with 7′ solid for a 10′ tall fence. The lattice will be open weave, as per new guideance from PRMD. Once built, owners can address the open weave as they see fit.
