Ground to be broken on 192-unit housing development

Groundbreaking ceremony set for Phase I

GARDEN CITY, KAN. – On Wednesday, April 20, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held for Hunters Glen, a multi-phased housing project in Garden City that will bring hundreds of  housing units to the community.

Phase I consists of 86 units at a total development cost of over $19,000,000 and has been obligated, while Phase II is in final application to USDA for 106 units and a total development cost of $22,000,000.  A Phase III will be submitted for preliminary application to USDA in the Fall of 2022.

Funded through USDA 514 loan and USDA grant dollars with financing by Bonneville and Horizon Bank, Phase I will provide affordable housing options for farmworkers as broadly defined by USDA.

“We’re very excited to be breaking ground at Hunters Glen,” Lona DuVall, President and CEO of Finney County Economic Development Corporation, said. “This project will help to fill some of our workforce housing needs. We appreciate Michael Snodgrass and his team’s dedication to partnering with Garden City and Finney County to create high quality rental housing.”

Snodgrass is owner of Oikos Development Corporation, the project developer.

The groundbreaking is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 20, near the intersection of North Third Street and Leawood Avenue, just north of Valley View Cemetery.

Local officials, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran, and USDA Regional Director Karissa Stiers will be on hand for the event.
