DEVELOPMENT IN WETACHU
Welcome back to Wetachu! If you don't remember all the way back to update 9, Wetach is a small town surrounded by agriculture.
Today we are going to look at one family of farmers and a decision that could ultimately forever change Wetachu. Let's go have a see at what's brewing...
This is Riebero Farms, held by Frank Riebero. Frank and his brothers and sisters co-own the farm, and have for the past decade since their father sold it to them and retired. The family recently made the decision to sell the land to a developer who plans to build a housing development and commercial office/retail component on the site. Some of the land will also hold a park. Permits are pending for 1 or 2 multi-residency buildings.
This section of land will be the site where the housing development will be built. The developer has also purchased 2 houses to allow for a street connection into town. Another street connection will be made to the main highway.
This is the part of the site that will house the park and commercial area (and the possible multi-residency building(s).) The road running vertical through the fields in the photo is scheduled to be upgraded to a higher capacity road, along with adding a connection to the neighbouring city.
Here is a better view of the road construction project area. The road will intersect the arterial road in the centre(ish) of the photo with a new traffic light controlled intersection.
Work on the new subdivision has begun. The little farm building has remained for now, and is now known as the "lunchbox" by construction workers. It will soon to be torn down to make way for houses...
Construction is progressing on the new intersection; the old pavement has been torn up and has been temporaraly been replaced with gravel.
Gravel has been laid for streets and the first few houses pop up in the new housing development.
Work has started on the new commercial area. No tennants have yet to be announced to the public...
Back at the intersection, a new base-layer of pavement has been placed. The is only a temporary inersection design, the final intersection will have longer turning lanes.
Houses are appearing faster than this season's corn crop in Windemere... ()
And so we have come to an end for today's update. As always, I hope you enjoyed today's update. We will be back in Wetachu soon to have a look at the continuing progress of the development project and to see if any more farmland has been sold to developers.
