The question
How is progress going on Kemper Village Homes? — Joyce Roach, Boonville Daily News employee

The answer
Ken Nuernberger, of ND?Consulting, said the company has received an excellent response regarding the available homes and has a waiting list of customers.

“We are happy to be able to see that the houses are going to get done,” Nuernberger said.
The developer plans for 40 single family homes along Ashley Road. The wooden frames of two houses stand towards the back of the lot.

Nuernberger said rain has slowed construction.

The construction comes after months of disagreement between city officials and residents who oppose building a low income housing development on an old golf course. Boonville resident Eldon Bugg filed a lawsuit against the city over the council’s approval of a rezoning. The next hearing is scheduled for May 6 in the 18th Circuit Court of Cooper County.

“I’m pretty impressed with how they’ve kept going despite the rain,” Nuernberger said.
 Sarah Gallagher, who retired last year as the city’s director of economic development, is working as a part time manager and leasing agent for the consulting group.

Nuernberger estimated the first properties would be finished in June. Thirty-two of the homes are designated for low income residents and eight are available to those of  any income.
