Cherokee village Sid tax is screwed up, it based on your home value. Most people who own a regular home 35-45k roughly pay 170 a year. Others pay as much as 280 a year. For a lot it9;s 130 a year.
Ant roughly 4900 population they bring in about 1.3 million a year.that's not counting 120-130 per year for every empty lot you own. About another half million dollars. On average cherokee village brings in close to 3.8 million a year in Sid tax.
Here's the weird part. The only two roads that ar paved to a fine road is Iroquois Dr, cherokee rd, and the one road that gose to the golf course. All the street in that subdivision are as smooth as a babies but. The rest of our roads go to hell. The reckroom is maintained at a cost of about 35-45k a year. The roads and reckrooms and the golf course together, actually take a third from the annual Sid tax.
While we seriously need improvements to our roads and signage. One little section of the village is fairly well maintained and the rest of the money is going into someone's pocket. They don't even cut the ditches but twice a year. Theve only been by our place once this year and cut them. But the gf course road it ditches are cut, fed and tucked in at night.
Point is the Sid is crap its a state level loop whole that feeds the rich. Buy a place with out a Sid tax they are stealing from you.

Typically real estate agents receive priority exposure on trulia and zillow, etc. based on how customers rate them. So the top agents you see on ads are just automatically populated on all listings, whether it is a FSBO or not. Some FSBOs are willing to work with a buyers agent and pay them a commission. Some are not. The ads are there in case a buyer wants to hire an agent. ... more

We are fortunate to have two fine golf courses in Cherokee Village. Both courses are par 72, with tees for every level of play. Many consider our two courses among the best in North Central Arkansas. Each course has its own distinct personality. The South Course features rolling hills and spectacular views; the North Course meanders along the South Fork of the Spring River for several holes. I enjoy playing both equally well. Hope this answers your question. An avid golfer. ... more

Actually, the perc test (for percolation) is to determine how fast the ground will absorb water and how quickly it disperses it. This is vital to finding out if a septic system will work on the lot for the purpose of building your home. If the test results show the soil is ok to allow a septic system and therefore a home, based on the results, it will determine how many bedrooms the home can have, not the number of bathrooms. If, for example, it "percs" for a 3 bedroom home, it doesn't matter if you have 2 bathrooms or 5, it only says the maximum number of bedrooms in the home can be 3.

If the lot is a lakefront lot, there are some other factors to consider, however I don't know if you're talking about a lakefront lot or not.

Hope this helps. If I can be of any further assistance, please contact me anytime. Thank you.

Just a little history of Cherokee Village: It all started in 1954, a retirement/recreational village, the first of which became very popular under the name Cooper Communities. John and his wife Mildred Cooper, from the Memphis area, realized that Spring River and South Fork of Spring River Valleys were the Memphis "Play Ground" for the last, at that time 55 years. Baby Boomers were being born every second and whether the Coopers knew it at the time, the time has come today!
Okay, back to the cost to build in Cherokee Village. It starts at about $70/sq. ft. and certainly goes up to above $100. However, the best thing we have going here , besides our wonderful people, is the incredible surroundings, low crime rate, low low taxes, lots of ammenities, golf, fishing, and water sports only to name a few. "If you can find a better place to live, buy it!"
