Moody breaks ground on new housing

October 13, 2005

Lowndes County - Airmen from Moody Air Force Base will soon have a new and improved option for housing.

Base leaders broke ground on the Magnolia Grove Housing Community Thursday. They'll build 383 new homes in the area off Davidson Road, and another 18 in the Quiet Pines Subdivision.

The homes are all three and four bedrooms, and are much larger than the base's current housing. "The housing on base is about 50 years old, this is going to be brand new, larger floor plans, two car garage, lots of storage because when military folks move around they accumulate a lot of boxes and things that they have to have," said Kathryn Thompson of American Eagle Communities.

The new neighborhoods will also include recreational areas, pedestrian and bike trails, and community centers.
