The site work is underway and people are anxious to move to the first new development in Cecilton in 15 years.
"I get calls every week from people who want to rent there," said Cecilton town clerk Kim Roland. "I'm getting a lot of calls."
Parklands at Cecilton, a 62-unit apartment complex, is attracting a great deal of attention. The project is being constructed on a parcel of land which connects the Frisby's Meadows subdivision to Center Street. It will consist of 10 buildings with six apartments each in nine of the buildings. One building will have eight apartments. The work is ongoing adjacent to the Cecilton Public Library.
This is a "green" development and will meet all those specifications. It will also feature all Energy Star appliances. There will be one, two, and three bedroom units and rentals will be according to income.
This project will also feature something that is badly needed in Cecilton. There will be a community building. That building will feature an approximate 70-person meeting room.
That room will be available to community organizations and groups for use. The room will also feature a warming kitchen.
Parklands at Cecilton is an Ingerman project.
That company also developed the Elkton Senior Apartments on Elkton's High Street.
Those who want to get information about moving in are being referred to the Ingerman.com website. When the time for leasing comes, arrangements can be made online.
