HISTORY OF MEADOWLAKES
The development of Meadowlakes began in 1973. In 1982, the community consisted of 91 homes and 178 people. By that time most of the streets, all of the utilities and recreational facilities were complete.
In the fall of 1985, residents voted overwhelmingly to incorporate. The City of Meadowlakes became a reality largely through the efforts of its first Mayor, Dick Neill. We are a proud, comfortable, and friendly city. Voluntary compliance with the ordinances and restrictions, as well as pride in the appearance of our city are important to all. In May 1998, the city voted to change from a Type C to a Type A Municipal Government. From a Mayor and two Commissioners, the City Government went to a Mayor and five Councilmembers.
The City is contained within 519 acres, of which the is the City Owned Golf Course, Club House and facilities which cover 150 acres of the total.
