Phase one for a new 71-lot housing development in Riverside is set to get underway.

At the recent city council meeting, an addendum with Apex Construction was signed to begin work on the first section of the Northern Heights Development. The work will include the construction of 21 lots for single-family homes, a water retention basin, and 1,117 feet of paved road. The bill for phase one is estimated to be around $600,000. The goal is to begin home construction in September.
