WINFIELD - The town of Winfield could experience a big growth spurt, if the plan commission approves a proposed new residential development. A public hearing that will address the matter is set to take place in June.
The "Times" reports the new development, Aylesworth Farms would include single-family and cottage homes. The single-family homes will range from 1,800 to 2,800 square feet and the cottage homes will be between 1,500 to 2,500 square feet.
The project would be a 515-unit Lennar Homes of Indiana development. Nearly a third of the site will be preserved as open space.
Aylesworth Farms also will feature a community pool and pool house, park land dedicated to the town, a silo and 2 miles of trails.
The project also will dedicate more than $3 million in off-site contributions to the town, including more than $1 million toward 109th Avenue improvements and a $1.7 million regional lift station on 117th Avenue.
