Schemmer’s Charly Huddleston, P.E., FACEC, and Dan Marti, PLS, attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Whispering Oaks subdivision in Council Bluffs on Wednesday, November 29, 2017. The ribbon cutting ceremony marked the beginning of phase one of the project.
The new subdivision is almost 200 acres and will hold 150 houses when phase one is done. At the completion of all phases, 400 new houses will have been built. Features include wooded and walkout lots, walking and bike trails and 50 acres of woodlands. With the hopes that Whispering Oaks will draw more families to the metro area, NP Dodge Real Estate said move-in dates could start as early as late summer 2018. The subdivision is being developed by BHI Development Inc. and exclusively represented by NP Dodge Real Estate.
In attendance were Council Bluffs Mayor Matt Walsh; Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce representatives Dan Koenig and Krissy Plunkett; City Council and Planning Commission; Jerry Torczon and Neil Smith from BHI Development Inc; NP Dodge Executive Management, Nate Dodge and Mike Riedmann; NP Dodge Iowa Offices Broker Manager, Dan Van Houten and NP Dodge agents and employees were present.
Attendees of the ceremony were able to ride a bus to tour the subdivision.
Schemmer’s work for the Whispering Oaks project includes site development, civil engineering and construction field services (geotechnical exploration, survey, materials testing and construction inspections).
