The land being discussed for possible development is at the southeast corner of the 140/99 intersection. The currently vacant land would be developed from the existing Hillcrest neighborhood northwest to the intersection.
Further development in the Hillcrest neighborhood on Findlay’s north side is becoming more of a reality. City council’s water and sewer committee approved a plan to partner with the neighborhood developer to increase the size of a water line and sanitary sewer to benefit the city while still serving their purposes for Hillcrest.
Service-safety director Paul Schmelzer said increasing the size of the waterline from 8 inches to 20 will help complete the city’s overall loop on County Road 140 near the intersection of County Road 99. The city would pay the difference in the two prices at $140,000.
Expanding the sanitary sewer to increase service will allow for future expansion. The plan calls for a 12-inch sewer instead of 8, of which the city would pay the $22,000 difference.
