Hantz Farms LLC posted this on its facebook page today – Its great to see!!!

Celebrate With Us….

It took 4 1/2 years to negotiate an agreement with the city to launch Hantz Farms.

It took another year to go through the process of purchasing the city’s surplus property within our development area.

The city gave us 2 years to mow the parcels we had purchased, plant at least 15,000 mixed hardwoods, and to demolish at least 50 dangerous structures.

Today we are 13 months away from our deadline. Thanks to your support and encouragement, and the hard work of our team, today we will receive a certificate of completion from the city. It acknowledges that our promises have been kept, and that our contract has been completed.

We have converted our development area from being a space, known for blight and decline, into being a place… neighborhoods connected by managed woodlands.
