Taylor council awarded a $3.39-million contract to S. Young Enterprises to build the Jarvis Crescent subdivision on Monday.
"This has been years coming, but finally we're in a position to be able to move on an award," Mayor Rob Fraser said.
The district is servicing the district-owned land with utilities and infrastructure for 50 lots to stimulate new home construction. Council has approved up to $4.2 million in borrowing to pay for the development.
The district received seven bids for the work. The contract with S. Young includes quotes for extra items such as lot fill, subgrading replacement, fencing, seeding and tree planting that may be done as part of the work, but will be determined later.
Also on Monday, council approved a $128,000 direct award to Urban Systems for project management services. Urban Systems has been involved in the engineering and planning for the subdivision since the project started.
"We'd be remiss if we went looking for another project manager with the wealth of knowledge and history they have with this," Coun. Betty Ponto said.
The subdivision is named after former long-time mayor Fred Jarvis, who served for 28 years and died in December 2018.
