FLORENCE — Two subdivisions that were shelved in the Great Recession moved a step closer to construction at Monday’s Town Council meeting.
The council approved an amended final plat for Sunrise Estates II in downtown Florence and the final plat for Mesquite Trails parcel 6 on Felix Road across from Crestfield Manor.
Located at the southeast corner of West Butte Avenue and South Centennial Park Avenue, Sunrise Estates I and II were first platted in 2005. Sunrise Estates I was built and occupied years ago. Texas-based LGI Homes has bought the 89 finished lots in SE II with the intent of building 86 new homes, reserving the unused lots for stormwater retention and open space, Florence Planning Manager Larry Harmer told the council.
