Huge by comparison with most other Ferndale housing projects, The Meadows subdivision promises to provide an additional 157 single-family homes in Ferndale.
Previously started as the 99 lot Blomquist Heights subdivision, The Meadows will be built behind Horizon Middle School (west of Church Road and south of Thornton Road). Plans call for a variety of home sizes and types throughout the subdivision.
Blomquist Heights was begun in 2006 and property grading, new roads, sewer and storm water were nearly completed when the project was halted due to the failure of the real estate market in 2007.
Construction is hoped to begin soon according to Eric Weden, principal of Weden Engineering and engineer for the project.
