Oregon could continue growing to the west this year.
Forward Development Group, a Verona-based developer, is working with the village to annex about 76 acres west of the Oregon Parks Neighborhood, where the developer hopes to begin construction this summer on new roads and homes.
The area, between Netherwood Road to the north and County Hwy CC to the south, includes 126 single-family lots, 25 lots for single-family “villas”or bayhomes, and 14 townhomes — for a total of 165 dwelling units.
The developer plans for higher density housing on the southwest corner and the northeast corner of the development, where the townhomes and villas would be built.
FDG manager Dennis Steinkraus said his group is looking at four phases of development, with about 40 lots in each phase.
“We’ve got to get all the land into the urban service area, and the village is working on that,” he said. “We should have all our entitlements by about June.”
Steinkraus added he’s gone before the Planning Commission and Village Board, got support from both bodies, and “everything seems to be in good stead.”
