The South Huntsville Business Association will host a community presentation of the Hays Farm revitalization project Thursday in the Grissom High School auditorium. It will start at 6 p.m.
Jim and John Hays, along with Jeff Enfinger of The Enfinger Cos., are developing the 850-acre generational Hays Farm into a multi-use project with 110 acres of commercial development including retail stores and restaurants; 200 acres of residential area with about 1,000 single-family and multifamily homes; and a 12-acre city park with a potential entertainment component, sports fields and a dog park.
The remaining 540 acres will remain protected land with 6½ miles of walking trails and a nature preserve.
The economic boost to Huntsville is projected to be $450 million.
Representatives from the city, the Hayses, Enfinger Cos., and SHBA will be available for questions.
