The Meadows came into existence through the efforts of local developer Peter Cumming who submitted the plans for the community around 1988. Shortly thereafter, Burg and DiVosta (soon to be just DiVosta) began developing the land in the area called Martin Downs for the soon to be constructed villages of The Meadows.
Divosta started construction on the site known as The Meadows in 1988 by building two structures from which to sell. One was a Single Family home (Hampton) in what is now known as Greenwich Village, and the other was a four unit Town Home building (Stamford) in what is now known as Lakemont Village. Both types of homes were started in The Meadows at about the same time in 1988. DiVosta completed the Meadows in 1993 and turned the administration and running of the community to The Meadows Homeowners Association which runs the community through elected officers as well as a full time support staff.
As of July 2020, the HOA fees are approximately $315.00 a month with some minor variations by the type of home. The Meadows is not age restricted and currently allows up to 2 large pets. Rentals are also allowed with some restrictions.
Children currently attend the Bessey Creek Elementary School, the Hidden Oaks Middle School; and the Martin County High School.
