Gila County has accepted $572,000 in assurances from the newly organized Strawberry Ridge Estates company to begin developing the infrastructure for a multi-family project in Strawberry.
Bob Gould, with the county's development office, said the figure is fairly small for infrastructure construction. He does not see it being an especially large project. The multi-family development, Strawberry Foothills II and III, is part of a 96-lot project that was originally approved in the early 1980s. The property is northwest of the Strawberry Schoolhouse, above Fossil Creek Road.
