Board Mtg Notes Feb. 6: BlackPine to build homes at north end of Crocker Village

BlackPine Communities President Mike Paris told the SCNA board his company has agreed to build all the homes at the north end of the Crocker Village development. Paris estimated construction would begin on the new homes in early June.

Brian Holloway, an adviser to Petrovich Development Co., presented a packet of information on future signage for Crocker Village. Holloway said he would let the board know the daily number of out-of-town shoppers the commercial area expected. Board members agreed that a successful, vibrant shopping center was very much wanted.
