Other Tanglewood Facts

Tanglewood Community Association facts include the following (Do you know more? Please contribute what you know to this history.)

  • Tanglewood Community Association was formed in 1976.
  • Early historical notes provided by former resident Earl Smith:
    • The builder was Woodlawn Enterprises, with the principal owner/developer Clyde Anderson, and with financial backing from Milton Petersen. The field superintendent was Bob Batal (who later established his own enterprise, Batal Builders). Mr. Anderson’s daughter lived in one of the models, although I do not know when she purchased it. She sold it in 2010.
    • The houses were built in order of the zones. So the west side of the creek (zones 1, 2, and 3) were built first and then zones 4 and 5 on the east side. The model homes were the three houses on the left side of the entrance on Tanglevale from Vale. The models were ready for showing in or around 1968. The models consisted of two five bedroom colonial models and one split level design. In 1970 the builder introduced a four bedroom colonial, the market was very slow at the time. Rose and I bought the first four bedroom in February 1970. The builder was planning on using that house as a show model. We allowed them to show it while we were occupying it. (We got a lot of goodies and benefits.)
    • The models were listed for sale at $43,500 for the split, $44,500 for the four bedroom colonial and $45,500-46,500 for the five bedroom models. There was also a premium charged for any lot that backed up to the park. (I think $1,500.) There were extra charges for garage over carport and double garage as well as double carport.
    • Woodlawn Enterprises controlled the HOA until all the houses were sold. The dues were $10 a year.
    • On June 1, 1976 with the completion of the project, Woodlawn turned over the HOA to the homeowners. They gave the Association a starter check of $265. Tom Walsh became the first president of TCA. (His wife Margo still lives at 2331 Riviera.) The dues remained at $10 per annum.
    • In 1985 the dues were increased to a whopping $15.
    • In 1990 the dues were increased to $20.
    • In 1994 the dues were increased to $24.
    • In 1995 the dues were increased to $40, where they remained until 2002 when they were doubled to $80 per year.
    • Margaret Brough of 2300 Tanglevale is the current longest continuing member, she bought in Dec. 1970.
