New home construction in the Hartford neighborhood in Statesboro

The City of Statesboro has approved a significant number of housing developments over the past 3 years. These range from general zoning approvals to actual property subdivisions. Kathy Fields, Director of Planning and Development, presented an update to the City of Statesboro on new home construction coming to the city at a recent works session for City Council. Fields thanked Justin Williams, Planing and Housing Administrator, along with her staff for helping put this update together.

In their report, Fields noted there are 2,270 housing units that have been approved with 617 more in process of approval.

Charles Penny, City Manager, said that if these projects are all completed, it could account for $400 million in new residential construction in the City.
