Plano: Limited Access During Arbor Hills Nature Preserve Improvements

September 30, 2020

Limited Access During Arbor Hills Nature Preserve Improvements

A series of erosion control projects and construction of a new restroom building are underway at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. During construction, parking will be limited and pedestrian traffic will be closed off on pedestrian bridges.

Over time, runoff from rainfall causes erosion to the creek banks adjacent to pedestrian bridges. The erosion control measures are designed to shore up those banks. The project began earlier this month and is expected to be completed in early 2021. Nature preserve visitors should view the detour map before planning their trip to the nature preserve, located at 6701 W. Parker Road.
Construction of a new restroom to replace the existing one near the Arbor Hills entrance will begin the week of Oct. 5 and is expected to be completed in Spring 2021. Nearby parking will be limited. The turn-around/drop-off point will be closed off with no through traffic. The new restroom will be located near the existing one. The existing restroom, playground and pavilion will all remain open during construction. After the new restroom is complete and open to the public, the existing building will be converted to a family restroom with additional maintenance uses.
With an increase in construction vehicles and workers on site, we’re urging park patrons to stay alert and follow all construction signage during their visits.

Arbor Hills will remain open during these projects. However, it will continue to be closed for maintenance on Wednesdays until roughly 2 p.m.

Just Approved: Cheap money to access from home equity

Published


Mortgage adviser: Liz Bayer, ProMortgage.

Property type: Single-family home in Berkeley.

Appraised value: $1.215 million.

Loan amount: $449,000.

Loan type: 30-year fixed.

Rate: 2.625%.

APR: 2.841%.

Backstory: I have a number of clients taking advantage of historically low rates and historically high home equity to get a cash out refinance. Past clients of mine had decided that they plan to live out their days in their home but wanted to tap into their equity to make home improvements to provide features that will benefit them as they age.


What was great is that even though they had a good rate from a previous transaction, it made all the sense in the world for them to refinance rather their mortgage taking out more than $100,000 with a new rate — which was lower than the one they had, even though this was a cashout refinance.



Although they did have a lot of equity in their home, conventional lending did not allow for an appraisal waiver as guidelines do not allow for a waiver if the transaction is cash out. In spite of this, we were able to get their loan done in 23 days. This is a perfect time to tap into home equity for long term needs.
