Epperson Builder Newsletter

We're excited to share this month's community updates from Metro Places.

Metro Places will be hosting a Realtor® Appreciation Event at the Epperson Lagoon On Thursday, December 3rd from 10am to 4pm. You are invited to join the top Realtors in Wesley Chapel as they learn about the unique Lagoon lifestyle at Epperson. If unable to attend, please drop off any collateral, displays or information that you would like displayed during the event to Vicki Perrington at the Lagoon front office prior to December 3rd.

It’s not easy to demonstrate to prospects that ALL the elements for a great life exist in one place! We are excited to share a new customer-friendly Epperson Master Community Plan. In the link below you will find the entire Epperson community from north to south including all current builder model centers, trails, amenities, and future development. Wait! There’s more. We will provide an overview of the plan in our next builder meeting and will be updating for redistribution as future development details are confirmed.

New resident park coming in 2021! Just north of Epperson Boulevard at Elam Road a new, outdoor resident area is planned. The park will be easily accessible through the community trail system and will include a 100’ x 100’ fitness field with a walking trail around the perimeter. This amenity is expected in late 2021 and also includes:

  • Playground for the young families who need a virtual classroom break
  • Picnic pavilion perfect for outdoor dining or taking a break in the shade
  • Large and small dog park with agility course and water fountain for all the furry kids
  • AND plenty of golf cart parking!

Earlier this month during our builder marketing meeting we discussed a temporary road closure on Elam Road and Epperson Blvd. This road closure began 11/25 in order to complete construction in the area. You can view the exact location of this closure on the Master Community Plan. Temporary signage has been installed to redirect prospects to model centers.

Residents have been very busy at the Lagoon these past few weeks! Neighbors decorated golf carts for a fun and socially distanced Trunk or Treat. An interactive nighttime bubble show lit up the night. And neighbors competed in a Bar Olympics event with cornhole, flip cup and more. We are also proud to announce that proceeds from the Casino Night will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. If you think that sounds fun, check out the lineup of entertainment, classes, celebrations and soirees planned for December! Share all the excitement with prospects by accessing the event calendar here.
