TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — There's a brand new community coming to Tallahassee.
City leaders joined Drew Developments of North Florida LLC for the groundbreaking of the Maple Ridge Community in Southwood.
Homeowners will choose from 56 lots near Mission Lake with nine pocket parks connected to other existing parks in the city.
Mayor John Dailey says he looks forward to the value Maple Ridge will add to Tallahassee's already nationally acclaimed quality of life.
"Well, we all know that Tallahassee is a great place to work, live and play," said Dailey. "The secret sauce in Tallahassee is our neighborhoods. We've got fantastic neighborhoods, and anytime we have the opportunity to add to that fabric of our quality of life, it's a win."
Maple Ridge's development will also bring new jobs to the area for the duration of construction.
