The six sub­di­vi­sions will have top­ping placed on their roads, which is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the sub­di­vi­sion de­vel­oper; how­ever, the de­vel­oper in each of the subdi- vi­sions de­faulted on bonds dur­ing the hous­ing col­lapse. The sub­di­vi­sions in­clude:

• Walker’s Bend • In­gle­wood • Dorch­ester Place • Wild­wood • Cov­ing­ton Place, phase six • Cor­ry­dale
