The City is looking for a developer for several large vacant sites remaining in the Willow Oaks neighborhood. Willow Oaks is built on a traditional neighborhood development model.
To date, the City has invested $15 million in the community in land assembly and infrastructure improvements such as streets, alleys, water/sewer/stormwater and electricity.
The City will provide technical assistance to a developer to the extent possible in securing other public financial assistance such as tax credits, grants, loans, and certificates of participation.

There are opportunities for a variety of development types. The largest are in Zone C as identified in the updated plan. This zone has four specific opportunity sites with different styles of development including the “missing middle” range of lower-density multi-family housing.
C1 is proposed for a two- to three-story senior building with a total of 16 to 24 units. This site is adjacent to The Villas, a development for seniors, a Community Center, and transit along McConnell Road.
C2 is proposed to be a either a 15,000-square-foot open-air, paved and roofed structure or a market building available for pop-up markets. Along with the existing Community Center, this flexible space will provide the neighborhood with a signature space and can be adapted over time if a market for commercial development occurs.
C3 is proposed for 26 attached single-family homes at 1,200-square-feet each, either for sale or as rentals.
C4 is proposed to be 23 detached single-family homes at 1,200-square-feet (for one-story homes) to 2,400-square-feet (for two-story homes) on 4,000- to 4,200-square-foot lots. Based on public input from the planning process, these homes are designed to have wider lots with larger private, rear yards than existing homes in Willow Oaks have.
