Sheffield eyes residential development opportunity

At their February assembly, the Sheffield City Council announced there’s a developer interested in turning a large plot of primitive land into a new cluster of residential properties.

According to the council, the contractor is highly active in promoting economic development, and there are 35 home lots available in the Sheffield community for housing.

However, others argued that there are more reasonable options than the hayfield. The golf course, for example, has lots already stubbed for water and sewage services. In the event of homes being built on the hayfield, the means for these services are not already in place. Additionally, the city would need to provide the new subdivision with roads and infrastructure.
