Oregon begins first phase of town center

        Oregon has started Phase 1 of its town center that will include a road connecting Pickle and Dustin roads.
        “The first phase involves the residential element of the town center,” said Public Service Director Paul Roman. “On the east side of the road will be small villas or homes similar to what we have at Eagle’s Landing. On the west side of the road will be apartments.”
        Construction at the site currently involves the installation of public infrastructure, said Roman.
        “Right now, it’s just roads, drainage, water, sanitary and other utilities going in,” he said.
        It is expected to be completed in July.
        Oregon in the last few years has been acquiring property in an effort to create a downtown area. In 2017, council passed a resolution in support of designating a zoning overlay as the first step in creating a downtown area that would include retail, residential, an entertainment district, and open green space along Navarre Avenue. The overlay district covers three areas bordered by Isaac Streets Drive, Navarre Avenue, Coy Road, Dustin Road, and Pickle Road, an area that totals 167 acres.
        The city also purchased the property of the former Kmart on Navarre Avenue as part of the town center. Roman said the property will see the start of development soon.
        “That will be coming up in the near future,” said Roman.
