HistoryThis was originally a water district established in 1962. The land was replatted in 1973 for a 205 acre planned development of a hotel, shopping center, gas station, and residential units named Forest Hills. It was never constructed. Ownership of the land changed many times from 1980 to 1992 when the Riva Chase residential community was marketed. Water and sanitation services were combined with road and open space maintenance and development of an infrastructure, hence a Metropolitan District replaced the single purpose water district. The plan for 150 units was 90% built in 1998.
