Developer Seth Woods provided photos of Walsh Pointe One – a housing development Woods Construction helped establish – as examples of the landscaping and foliage residents of Riverdale can expect once homes in the new Woods Estates of Riverdale project are completed.
In response to a request made by the City of Riverdale earlier in the year, Mr. Woods provided a written commitment to plant over 1,000 trees with diameters of 3″ or greater on the 100-acre development when it is finally completed. (Note: The TIF established for the project has a ten-year lifespan, so it is currently assumed the project will be completed before that – but economic conditions are a factor in the housing market and a slowdown may delay final completion.)
Mr. Woods’s statement, dated April 11, 2019 says:
Woods Construction & Development is responsible for the planting of 1,024 trees 3” diameter or greater. The covenants shall read “each lot/home is required to plant a minimum of 7 3” diameter trees”. At a 116 lots x 8 trees each, we have 928 replanted trees. The developer than will be planting the balance on the entrance, hillside and northeast property line of the development.
This statement squares with a previous one Mr. Woods made to the City Council back in August of 2018.
