New housing project is perfect timing, developer says

A Council Bluffs developer who plans to build 56 homes in a major subdivision there called the move "perfect timing," the Daily Nonpareil reported. "There is a need out there, and it's a proven subdivision," said John Jerkovich, owner/broker of Heartland Properties Inc. He was referring to the continuation of development at Hills of Cedar Creek that began about a decade ago. The City Council this week approved the preliminary plans for the two-phase project, with the first involving 23 lots. Construction is expected to begin in August.
