Gage and Tommy Cansler, president of Timberland Creek Companies Inc. in Irving, discussed the project during an open hearing and regular session with the commission.
Gage and Cansler
said they were optimistic they could make the necessary changes on the plat.
said the lot count on the development dropped from 235 to 209, and said he
didn't think 40-foot lots would be big sellers for builders.
The price range of the homes jumped from the $100,000 to $125,000 range to a $100,000 to $175,000 scale, Cansler
said.The entire development would be built in four to four and half years, he
"That's a little bit under 50 homes a year - probably close to 40 to 45 a year," he
was confident that the issues could be sorted out and said one builder is excited about coming to Decatur.
"We now have some directions that we didn't really have before - both from the builder and from the city," Cansler
said they will talk with their builder about the city's expectations.
"We're close to getting this deal done and putting it to bed," Cansler
