Twin Peaks Village, Neighborhood Groups
Our subdivision has an open common area with a gazebo, which is used for breakfasts, picnics and various meetings. We also have a ladies breakfast the first Tuesday of each month at different restaurants. Christmas is our annual party. We are fortunate to have a very congenial group of homeowners in our neighborhood of 25 homes.
TWIN PEAKS VILLAGE became an HOA upon completion of the homes. Our HOA is self managed by a board of five directors who meet quarterly. The covenants were amended to officially become a 55 and over designated community with limited rental provisions. The newsletter is published quarterly with an annual meeting in January of the following year to install new officers.
Our neighborhood site was farmland outside the Chicago Colony Town Site Plan. In the 1980’s a block of land from 16th street on the south and 17th street on the north, bounded by Francis Street on the west and Bowen street on the east was annexed into the city and developed as single family homes called TWIN PEAKS ESTATES.
In the center of this development was an acreage designated as a church site- bounded by 16th St on the south, 17th St. on the north, Francis St. on the west and Sherman Way on the east. In 1991 the zoning was changed to accommodate 25 single family homes identified as TWIN PEAKS VILLAGE. The intent was to have brick ranch style patio homes with low maintenance for seniors. The homes were constructed between 1992 and 1996. A masonry wall encircles the homes on Francis and 17th Streets. There are two entrances to the subdivision, Francis Way and Sherman Way.
