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.
