I'm glad to see someone who has a 6ft privacy fence there, thought i had read somewhere that fences in CV can't exceed 4ft. So that was a huge concern of mine since one of my dogs can scale a 4ft fence with ease.

If I move sooner than later I'll have to find work there and I'm not seeing too much available around CV to be honest. I'm in manufacturing, but I'm getting too old for it so I would hope to find something more along the lines of an office position, any suggestions would be welcome as to where to look or if it's even worth looking in the CV area.
The fence issue is or was the same in Bella Vista (both cooper developments) but now you see both chain link and wood fences throughout the city.

I wake up everyday being thankful I found my " paradise" after years of researching and scouting many areas in the south.

Houses are very reasonable and with the wooded areas one can own a house on a small lot and still have privacy.

I am not concerned at all about having my house broken into.

This place isn't for everyone, though.

The reason everything is so reasonable , is jobs are very hard to come by.
Opportunities are mainly in the health care field ( home health care companies)

Walmart, 8 miles from me, has a Super Center and that would probably be as good a job as any.

Everyone is different.
To me, the weather/climate for me is perfect
Deer galore.......good thing for some/bad for others.......I love seeing them in my backyard daily.

Big bonus.............NO MOSQUITOES !
No mosquitoes? Now that's a plus! I pretty much figured the job outlook was pretty dismal. Though if I had to I could easily transition to home care aid which i see a lot of listings for. Speaking of bugs though, how bad are the ticks and chiggers, I've heard they can be pretty awful down that way.

ticks and chiggers can be bad if you go walking in the woods during the hot weather. Stay out of their home and you will be fine. Or take a bath in bug spray before you go out.


Most people in Cherokee Village are retired and not looking for a job. But there are some around if you want to work.

Your fence can be up to 5 feet tall.

Interesting, as I browse the listings I have run across a few with fenced in yards, most of which look to be 4 foot fences. I have seen a couple though that have definitely had taller fences that look to be 6 feet which would be my preference. I don't think my one dog can jump a 5 footer, but he definitely can't get over a 6 footer. I'll definitely have to do more research on that.

4ft was allowed.

About a year ago it got changed to 5 ft ( I believe)

I doubt 6 ft is allowed.

Any one have any opinions to share about utility costs in the village. Looks like most everyone heats with propane? I've seen a few listings for all electric homes which I would presume would be worth avoiding. But, I'm also wondering, are there homes that only heat with fireplaces? In other words, no furnaces? I know when I look at a listing it raises some questions when the listing only mentions "fireplace" (wood or gas log), is that to suggest some of these homes don't have furnaces? I know the winters generally aren't as severe as northern Illinois, but still, I know it can and does get cold down there.

Fireplaces are for romantic evenings. If it doesn't say woodstove, it probably has a furnace, or electric heat.

I know woodstove heating isn't that uncommon outside cities, but I haven't seen much of it in residential (in town) areas.

In the long run, propane will almost always save money over electric, but in the short run, the extra cost of installation persuades many people to go electric.
