Buck Springs Resort Expansion Meeting
Posted on Feb 1st, 2023
LOGE Camps, the new owners of the resort, hosted a virtual informational meeting for Pinetop Lakes Association on January 31, 2023. Their planned expansion includes adding an additional 40 lodging units, fire pits, trails/pathways, a possible coffee shop and/or bar, gear rentals, a stage with a grassy area and a dog park that can be enjoyed not only by the resort guests, but also the surrounding community. They were kind enough to listen to some of PLA residents’ concerns. Some of the Member concerns that were discussed in this meeting included:
 
Construction – Most of the construction of the new lodging units will happen off site. Foundations will be poured and preconstructed cabins will be brought in. They plan on having construction complete by the end of 2023.
 
Traffic – There was discussion of a traffic study to be requested from Navajo County. A suggestion of possibly adding a right turn lane to alleviate some of the potential additional traffic created by the resort.
 
Noise – Noise concerns were raised with additional lodging units and the addition of a stage. The plans for the pods of cabins were drawn up 60 – 80 feet from the property line to allow for a “forested buffer zone” between the resort guests and the neighbors. According to LOGE Camps, the stage will host mostly acoustic music in the late afternoon/early evening hours. A PLA Member requested a possible noise policy for the performers, including a decibel limit.
 
Lighting – Concern was raised about lighting at the resort and parking areas. Per the Navajo County Resolution attached, all lighting on the property shall face inward, downward, be shielded, and be in conformance with the Navajo County Lighting Ordinance.
 
Fire dangers – Concerns about the fire pits were raised including enforcement of fire restrictions, verifying fires are not left unattended and maintaining area fire ratings for homeowner’s insurance. LOGE Camps is in communication with the Pinetop Fire Department. A Manager should also be onsite to monitor firepits and other help address some of the other possible concerns.
 
Deforestation of the area – Concern about tree removal was brought up. LOGE camps stated that they intend to keep as many of existing trees in the area as possible. With their plans, they can move the pods as needed to keep as many of the existing trees as possible. A member at PLA suggested possibly replacing removed trees and/or adding trees for fencing to create more privacy for the neighbors.
 
We have a direct email contact for the Development Manager at LOGE Camps. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email them to Dawn Yarosh plamanager@hotmail.com and they will be forwarded. When the expansion is complete, they plan on having a manager onsite to handle any concerns or complaints.
