Posted at 4:32 PM, Jan 08, 2018

The development nearby Prairie Queen Recreational Center already has received a lot of attention for its picturesque get-away spot. 

Soon a new $100 million project would add 500 units of housing and retails shopping where a cornfield sits currently. 

"The boys love it and we enjoy ice fishing," said Larry Moyers who will live by this new development. 

Moyers with his two sons are out ice fishing before they have to go back to school, "For me I'm an outdoorsman, and my kids like to do it and it's close to home, it's a good area."

Moyers just moved to the area from Bellevue, "It's a place that we wanted to raise our kids up in."

Soon he'll have more neighbors as this development will bring in hundreds of new residents with a mix of duplexes, apartment and townhomes. There will also be space for retail a swimming pool and a greenhouse. 

But the developer wants this new neighborhood to have a dignified feel to it and designed as a walkable community that provides connectivity between the buildings and the sidewalks. 

According to the developer, rents will range from $900-$2,200 a month. 

It's yet another major development project as the city expands west, "It's definitely growing and its growing fast and I think that it's going to stay growing," said Moyer. 

With this growth, Moyers is looking forward to the new places he'll go in his new neighborhood, ves you somewhere to shop and everything when you live right here close to home and you can walk out your back door and fish and go shopping and whatever you need."

But what wont change is the pond Moyers and his sons ice fish in, that create life-long memories. 

"And these lakes and stuff around here is about the only nature eventually you're probably going to see," said Moyers. 

Developers hope to break ground in the Spring with residents moving in Spring of 2019.
