Deal nears for new housing in DeKalb
DeKALB – An annexation agreement for Irongate, a 1,000-plus unit housing development on the north side of DeKalb, could be reached as early as March, city officials said.
City Manager Mark Biernacki said that since a Jan. 29 special meeting on the topic, a lot of progress and compromise has been made between Irongate developer ShoDeen Construction, city staff, and DeKalb’s school and park districts.
“I’d characterize the plan being 90 percent – to the point where it meets all of the council’s objectives,” Biernacki said. “There will be some issues the council will be asked to amend their opinion on.”
