Our Development Plan
Executive Summary Year One Development Plan
Unlike other lakefront developments, we're not cramming extra lots into this amazing property. only 7-9 lakefront homes are planned for this development. Privacy and security matter to us, and we're incorporating it into neighborhood design using fencing, cameras and natural buffers that don't interfere with your view or water access, but provide you with security. Please see Columbia County R4 Zoning Requirements. R4 minimum lot size, natural buffers and incorporated greenspace exceeding R4 standards, with 10 of the original 23 acres remaining as horticultural, recreational, and wildlife viewing areas. Future subdivision of remaining 2-7 lots is expected to occur in 2027, with minimum lot size of R4 or larger.
Paving and Easements
Abundance Point is responsible per county requirement to pave the easement known as Kamper Klub Road after the first three lots are sold, to AASHTO County Schedule A standards in order to do any development that would accommodate housing or group recreation. Per agreement with fellow easement holders, Abundance Point will pave the road and dedicate the road to the County. Over the years since 1972, the existing shared easement known as Kamper Klub Rd has been shrinking, resulting in our need to construct a new easement across approximately 50 yards of USACE Property. This is necessary in order to conduct any sort of group recreation, since people need access to the property by vehicle. Subsequent subdivision of 2-7 remaining lots is not expected to occur until 2027.
Docks and Swimming Beach
Docks are community maintained, semi private. Enjoy your own private space without the maintenance costs. Swimming beach will be refurbished in strict accordance with USACE Shoreline management plan in coordination with USACE Forester. Reserve the swimming beach for private events.
The Event Space
Our private, community clubhouse will provide a welcome space for residents’ gatherings, family reunions, and picnics. This is not a public clubhouse. After sale of the first 3 lots, road paving, trail construction, tree planting and barn are complete, construction will begin on this exciting space for group recreation, private gatherings, and educational events. The private clubhouse will comply with all health department standards for commercial kitchen construction and will require Serve Safe Certification for any group meals or catered events. This building will meet and exceed all local fire codes for occupancy number voted on at future date by members. Adding solar to our public spaces is important to us, as well as adequate battery backup to provide consistent power during outages.
The Agricultural/Horticultural Space
Adding local, sustainable, healthy food into our communities is important, but not easy. Most of the “fresh” produce we eat here in Georgia comes from over 1500 miles away…and it tastes like it! We all saw during 2020 how fragile our food distribution systems are…and things could get worse with supply chains, fuel and environmental crises. Our members will have access to fresh, local food through our member’s associated small farm, as well as an inviting botanical space. The natural slope of our property is vulnerable to erosion through significant rain events. Using the slope for terraced horticultural space prevents runoff, manages water retention in the soil, and builds healthy microbes that can actually build topsoil over time. Creating these pesticide, herbicide and fungicide-free food systems also reduces underbrush, stores water in the soil, and prevents fire destruction. Adding a diversity of edible plants throughout our neighborhood provides for pollinators and birds as well, while our natural buffer system keeps wildlife farther away. Our farmer and HOA work together to provide yard management design and maintenance to ensure these systems endure as our properties appreciate. Adding these inviting, functional spaces during the first phase of property development relieves the small farmer of infrastructure costs and adds value to our events and final sales. We can keep properties clear of underbrush and fire hazards, reduce erosion, build topsoil, and increase property value - while continuing a proud Georgia tradition of food independence.
