Officials and contractors broke ground on the Jarvis Crescent subdivision in Taylor Friday evening.
The district is servicing the land with utilities and infrastructure for 50 lots to stimulate new home construction. The subdivision is named after former mayor Fred Jarvis, who served for 28 years and died in December 2018.
“Fred was always happy when Taylor expanded,”his wife Judy said.
“This is just going to be a dream come true. If he would have been here, he would have said, ‘well done.’”
Work begins Monday. S. Young Enterprises holds the tender.
Construction is expect to be complete in the fall, with lots on the market in spring.
