Fredericksburg Moves Forward on Lower Cost Housing

The move toward developing lower cost housing continues in Fredericksburg. The City Council approved an annexation agreement this week along with zoning ordinances for the land, and the plan is to put up 52 homes on just under 12 acres on Smokehouse Road. The target price for homes will be under $260,000. The city will be responsible for the bill for utilities on each lot. The Fredericksburg Standard says construction will begin soon and the developers have already begun to reserve lots.
