Considering making a move to Cherokee Village in the near future. Can anyone tell me if it's only good as a retirement area, or are there any decent local jobs there? I don't see many listings for employment as of the moment. I may be retiring within the next few years, but I'm in Illinois and I'm really fed up with most everything related to Illinois, especially the frigid winters and the high property taxes. I'd really like to move sooner than later. I've been browsing the realestate listings for CV, Fairfield Bay, Heber Springs, and Greers Ferry areas. All places that I have been to or at least passed thru in past years. I like all above mentioned places from what I could see of them. I need to find a dog friendly area though as I have 3 lab mixes, and one has a bit of pitbull in her. I don't want them subject to any adverse conditions or breed specific legislation as they are all very loving and sweet dogs. They are a priority in my life and I want to keep them all safe. So any pro and con information would be greatly appreciated. Information on pet friendly, jobs, safety, etc would be great. Thanks in advance.

I'm not a wealthy person, so cost factors keep bringing me back to CV and the reasonable home prices and apparently low property taxes there. What are the downsides to living there if any? Or should I focus my attention on other areas? My dogs require a fenced in yard, are there ordinances on fences there that I need to know about up front?

I have never been to CV, so I can only offer general information/opinion. It's my understanding that CV is a "planned" community, and they tend to have more rules regarding the number of animals permitted on a property, ect.
I found a link to animal control, by searching for CV. You might want to contact them directly about your dog concerns. Hope this little bit is helpful to you.

City of Cherokee Village, Arkansas

My answer would be similar to the first one. The restrictions can be a bit hard for some to take. WE haven't been there but we do live in BV which was planned by the same company as CV and HS village. We have no problems with the restrictions. There will be POA monthly assessment but if like Bella Vista they are not bad at all. HSV are much higher. The company that planned all 3 communities have several others throughout the south. I say several, about 6 or so I think. BTW the restrictions on fences, if like here are pretty relaxed but there still will be some. Good luck with you possible future move. This is a great state to live in.

Thanks for the info. I do have some reservations about additional rules and restrictions when it comes to homeowner associations...call me a rebel I guess, just not really keen on being told what I can and cannot do when I own my own property. But, of course I'd need to investigate all such rules well ahead of any decision to move. We stayed in CV a number of years ago while vacationing. I did like it back then, and the prices seem to be a bit more reasonable than other similar areas.

Just from what I have heard, I think you may find it has changed a little or maybe a lot in the past several years. Yes, it is less expensive than other Copper developments. That is for certain.

If your dogs are nice and quiet and you keep then in your yard there should be no problem.

I would suggest visiting the area before moving here. There is the days inn and spring River lodge, also camping at the Hardy Camper park. Contact one of the canoeing or float places for a tour of the river. Get a fishing license go fishing. There is plenty of things to do to occupy your time. If you like or dislike Cherokee Village depends on what you like to do.
Enjoy your visit.

great advise. I would imagine she will do more research and actually find a realtor that is willing to spend a few hours with her so she will have a true feel for the area. That is always what we did when considering a more. Our realtor here in Bella Vista was good and answered all our questions. she knew we were simply in the process of relocating. Of course when we made our decision she was there to help us. We eventually became good friends and she sold our daughter and family a home here.

Check out Heber Springs, it may have more blue collar areas, and few restrictions.
