Where is the project?
The project is on the east side of Madras, south of Ashwood Road and east of City View. It is adjacent to the Madras Aquatic Center and south of the Jefferson County Middle School, Juniper Hills Park, and the the Central Oregon Community College (COCC) Madras campus.
How was the project design/concept created?
Long-time Madras resident Doug Macy, of Walker Macy Land Planners in Portland, has created the Yarrow master plan which incorporates a variety of housing sizes and types, pedestrian friendly streets and walkways, open spaces and a park. Yarrow also held public meetings in Madras encouraging local opinions and suggestions during the design process.
What are the sizes of the homesites?
Single-family homesites vary in size from approximately 6,000 square feet to three-quarters of an acre.
Is there a Homeowners’ Association?
Yes. There is master homeowners’ association.
Are there design and building guidelines for the homes in the community?
Yes. The quality of design and construction is enforced through Covenants, Conditions and
Restrictions (CC&Rs). Architectural design standards are enforced through an Architectural Review Committee.
What are the amenities of this project?
The project’s location is an amenity itself. The project lies directly south of the Juniper Hills Park, one of the largest parks in Central Oregon with 60 acres of land. The north entry to the project passes by the new Madras Aquatic Center and Jefferson Middle School. The Yarrow property commands stunning views of the Cascade Mountain range and overlooks the City of Madras. Views such as these are coveted and certainly stand out as a key amenity of the project.
Within Yarrow, there are many open spaces, trails, a neighborhood park and future plans for a neighborhood center featuring retail and businesses. The sidewalks and pathways throughout the community provide ample opportunities for connectivity and recreation.
