The Clinton City Council Monday night approved an engineering agreement for a new subdivision between Illini Drive and Kleeman Road.
Tim Followell told Regional Radio News on the WHOW Morning Show Tuesday, the idea of this area being developed for housing has been around for a long time and the City has taken it upon themselves to see it through.
Followell indicates that once completed the project will cost the City approximately a half-million dollars. The subdivision will consist of seven lots for families to build within the city limits.
Followell says the timeline currently is a March letting on bids with the subdivision completed by the end of the summer.
The City approved the engineering agreement with Farnsworth Group 5-0 Monday night.
