Construction in underway for the more than 25 new homes being constructed. The neighborhood is located just off West Street and nearly intersects with Chicago Street in the New Addition area of town.
West End Drainage Channel
One concern raised was whether the drainage from the new subdivision will hurt the Westwood Subdivision to which it attaches on the western edge of the subdivision.
As shown in the photo to the left, the base of these new homes sits equal to or higher than the five (5) foot fence around the homes in the Westwood Subdivision. The home in this photo is that of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry and Laswanna Donaldson. The flow of the water seems to be north to south. The Best Western Motel is to the north in this photo.
