Hays Farm development plans presented to the public

Plans for a community-revitalizing development that family developers say will transform south huntsville were shared with the public Thursday evening.

Folks in the Huntsville community met at Grissom High School to learn about the new Hays Farm multi-use development, right from the developers. The 850-acre project is now under construction and includes an entertainment district, homes, a nature preserve, shopping, restaurants, and more than six miles of walking trails.

“It’s a time where South Huntsville needs it,” said Jim Hays, an owner, who is overseeing the development. “It’s a time the community will support it, and it is going to be a fun time. It’s going to do a lot of economic good for this whole community”

It’s estimated that the development will mean a $450 million boost to the area. It is expected to take around 4-5 years for it to come to fruition.
