The Village at Odell’s Pond is growing. Construction of Odell’s 4, consisting of 12 new units in an arrangement similar to the existing townhouses, will start on Monday, Nov. 19. The building project will require current Odell’s apartments to lose power from approximately 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30, or if it rains, Monday, Dec. 3.
Parking changes will also be placed in motion over Thanksgiving break. During the break, all cars need to be moved from outside the current Odell’s apartments and parked in the Odell’s South parking lot across St. Clair Street. Any car left parked outside the townhouses will be towed.
Students returning from break will find half of the current parking spaces occupied by construction equipment in a fenced-in area, and new directional signs will be placed through out Odell’s. The community is reminded to adhere for safety sake.
Scheduled to be completed this summer, the project will continue through the remainder of the academic year with construction crews working from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Creating more housing opportunities for students is a component of HWS 2010, a strategic planning initiative.
