Stonewood to begin construction this spring
Stonewood, a planned gated community in the Maple Ridge neighborhood near 32nd Avenue East in West Fargo, was given final design approval by the City Commission on Monday night.
Developer Mark Buchholz said he hopes to begin construction on the private road this spring and construction on the first of 10 homes would begin this year. Buchholz said he has worked with residents in the area to directly address their concerns including using a privacy fence in the design that a consensus of neighbors agreed on.
Many residents have emailed the city staff in both opposition and support of the plan. In correspondence with the City Commission, City Assessor Wanda Wilcox said values would not immediately shoot up because of a nearby gated community.
