I am breathing a sigh of relief. Can you hear it?
Kevin went to the city council meeting himself last night. He wanted to hear first hand what was being discussed in regards to Heisley Park. I am awfully glad he did this - hearing it first hand is the best thing right now. Anyhow, it was a unanimous vote FOR basements to be built, based on the studies conducted and the city engineer's final recommendation. This is great news, of course, because without the ability to have a basement built, we wouldn't be building. Kevin even met the district manager for Ryan Homes and got to chat it up with him for a bit.
All in all, Kevin left with a great feeling - which means that I now have a great feeling. So that whole thing is behind us. We had to sign a paper that basically said that if the city did NOT approve basements to be built, that we would proceed with the purchase of the house, but that is a null point since they did approve. It may not make sense to you why we had to sign that after the fact. Well, the truth is that it needed to have been signed by last Friday ... prior to knowing the outcome of the meeting. Our sales rep was just kind enough to recognize our concern over the matter that she allowed us to sign and date it ... but take the paperwork home with us. We had to drop it off this morning and gladly did, now knowing the outcome.
Oh - and she gave us the good news that it looks like our ground-breaking date may move up a week! It's possible we could be breaking ground May 24th ... so THIS month!!
I'm back with HUGE NEWS!!
