New Housing Subdivision Brings More Living Options To Area

(Mt. Vernon, IL) — A press conference was held at Re/MAX Elite in Mt. Vernon yesterday to announce the new construction of 2 model homes in what is now being called Woodglen Acres Commons. Groundbreaking took place immediately after the press conference and served as Day 1 of the project. Both homes are to be built at the same time and the project is said to be complete in 90-120 days. These homes will be 1,451 square feet and are priced at $169,900. Both model homes have a different floor plan, but the contractor will build to suit. If this project is successful, there are 125 more potential lots in Woodglen Acres Commons that can be developed. David Parker has been working closely with the city for some time now to make new construction possible. With the help of Banterra Bank and R & R New Home Construction, Mt. Vernon now has new housing options.
