While we will do our best to minimize disruption when possible, road and utility improvements will cause periodic updates in and around the site. We will communicate closures to the Highland District Council and will provide information through the Highland Villager. Also, please join our email list to be notified of construction updates and lane closures around the site when they occur.  

Site work and infrastructure construction began in Spring 2020 and the first phase will extend into 2021. Initial roads and utilities will open in late Fall of 2021 with additional roads, walks, and bike lanes being built every year until 2025 when all infrastructure will be completed. Individual buildings will start to take shape in 2021 and will continue for over 15 years. City Parks and open spaces will be completed in Spring/Summer of 2022.
