Hundred of new homes coming to Windsor
December 4, 2012
The Windsor Town Board on Monday approved final plans for a pair of residential developments, signaling continued growth in the area.
Scattered across 97 acres, 292 lots will encompass Windshire Park, Third Filing east of 17th Street and south of the Great Western Railroad. All but two of the lots will be single-family residences, ranging from 6,400 to 14,600 square feet. Additionally, there will be a 2.5-acre park
Though smaller, Windsor Meadows — the flagship workforce housing project from the Windsor Housing Authority — was concurrently approved with the Windshire development. It will feature 80 units sprawled across 6.4 acres, according to town documents. In addition to providing affordable housing, it will include discreet rooftop solar panels, among other environmentally conscious amenities.
“We’ve worked very hard to try to listen to everybody,” said Windsor Housing Authority chairman John Moore. “I feel it’s gone at breakneck speed,” he added.
Both developments were initially approved during the Nov. 21, planning commission meeting. Monday’s discussion was the only time site plans would be presented during a formal town board meeting. Complete plans are available online at http://www.windsorgov.com.
