Developer of Tall Oaks village still mum about fixing problems

The developer of the Village of Tall Oaks still has not said how he will correct problems at the town house development off Route 144.

Town Council President R. Delaine Hobbs said the council has not received word from Frall Developers about its plans to finish landscaping and tot lots, install fences and correct other problems at the 121-home development.

Last month, the council was told that James M. Frey, president of Frall Developers Inc. of Mount Airy, was seeking cost estimates on the work. Mr. Hobbs said the council should know "exactly what's taking place by next month or will take other action."

The development's homeowners' association wants the developer to place fencing around sediment-control ponds, erect other fences, eliminate problems with an underground spring so that a sidewalk does not continually flood, and complete landscaping and tot lots.

The association has estimated the cost of the work at $50,000.

The group has been trying to get the developer to address the problems for years. Earlier this year, the council ordered the developer to complete the work or face legal action.
