Here we GROW again!
Madison City Schools will soon begin the planning process to construct a brand new elementary school on the west side of Madison.
Mayor Paul Finley says that a large portion of land in Limestone County will soon be annexed into Madison and will consist of the aforementioned new school as well as upwards of 200 new homes and a road that will connected Segers Road to Hardiman Road. Breaking ground for this project could begin as early as 2022, and Finley expects that the entire project should be completed no later than 2029.
Finley says that this is the first time the city will annex land larger than three acres since 2016.
“We want people to know that growth is a good thing if it’s managed well,” shared Finley. “We know that adding people to our community leads to some trepidation, but we have a solid growth policy plan and are committed to staying on top of it.”
Finley says that there is a “monster” housing shortage here in Madison, and that many people are worried that our schools are overburdened too. He is confident though that annexing this land and bringing this new development to life will greatly benefit our schools as well as provide additional housing opportunities for those who wish to reside in our community.
He continued to share that step one of the project is adding the road that will connect Segers to Hardiman.
