The City of Huxley had a large amount of tax increment financing funds that were generated by residential developments which could only be used to benefit people with low to moderate incomes. In early 2010, the City decided to purchase and redevelop a blighted mobile home park to turn it into affordable housing. Relocation assistance was provided for residents by the City, and the abandoned trailers were removed. Snyder & Associates assisted the City with alternative concept development, cost estimating, environmental investigations, preliminary and final planning, rezoning to a planned unit development, preparation of construction documents, and construction administration and staking. The property was then redeveloped to provide assistance to low to moderate income families. It was particularly challenging to remove old infrastructure, so it did not interfere with new home construction. The Prairie Ridge Development includes 41 single family lots, ten bi-attached lots, a 2.3-acre site for a multi-family development, five commercial lots along E. 1st Street, and a city park.  A new stormwater detention facility was constructed in the northeast corner of the site to reduce runoff and improve water quality. The project was successfully completed in fall 2011, and new homes are being constructed on the site.
