On October 11, Allen Harris, developer of The Springs of Mill Lakes hosted Mayor Gary Fuller, Opelika City Council members and department heads at the new 55+ community’s Owl’s Roost Clubhouse for a mid-construction barbecue.
Harris provided an update on the development and also unveiled a plaque to be placed on the bridge within the property, honoring Opelika’s Mayor Gary Fuller and Council Members Patricia Jones, Eddie Smith, David Canon, Larry Gray and Dozier Smith T.
Allan Campfield, President of Homeworks of Alabama, Peyton Rogers, Operations Manager of Harris Doyle Homes and Betsy Sheppard, President of Gilbert & Sheppard Group also addressed the guests and thanked the City of Opelika for its ongoing support. In turn, Mayor Fuller thanked The Springs for bringing this very special 55+ active lifestyle community to Opelika.
The lunch gathering in the clubhouse amidst construction was fun and casual. Guests enjoyed local Chuck’s Bar-B-Que and the opportunity to see The Springs’ progress first-hand.
