Heel Way Project Updates

The proposed Heel Way Subdivision is a residential project consisting of six dwelling units, developed in keeping with the Town Subdivision Ordinance and applying the Workforce Housing criteria for density. The site is presently developed with one single-family home. This project will add two two-family dwellings and one new single-family home to create six individual residences in four structures. An existing five-bay garage structure will be renovated and used for additional storage space by future residents. Learn more about this and our other housing projects here.
