Boyde’s Crossing, that will promote community through its “Pocket Neighborhood” design is in the works. Boyde’s Crossing will be built on the nine-acre parcel of land at 106-108 Main St. It will house 40 single-family, cottage-style homes overlooking a shared green in the middle of the community with roadways running behind the homes. Each home will be two-levels and up to 2,000-square-feet. Three styles will be offered. The community is designed to be environmentally friendly.  Recycled and renewable materials will be used. The landscaping will include drought tolerant plants that require less water. Pervious surface pavers will be installed that promote drainage, recharging the water back into the ground.

The Pocket Neighborhood movement first erupted in Seattle, Washington 15 years ago. Instead of large yards to tend to, the green space in the middle of the community will serve as a meeting place. Boyde’s Crossing will also be within walking distance of the train station and the downtown area. Bike racks will be installed to promote healthy living, and help people spend less money for gas to fuel their cars. A solar powered system is going to be installed in the shared garage area. The lighting and electricity consumed will be solar generated and reduce costs.

One of the details designed to bring neighbors together is an organic community garden where people can come and share gardening tips and socialize. The inspiration for the garden dates back to World War II when communities came together to grow vegetables in “Victory Gardens” as part of the war effort. Water will come from a well and rainwater, again reducing costs.

During construction, recycled and renewable materials will be used, he said. The landscaping will include drought tolerant plants that require less water. Pervious surface pavers will be installed that promote drainage, recharging the water back into the ground.

Homeowners can expect to pay approximately $100 to $150 a month in homeowner association fees. The fees will cover snow removal and general maintenance.
