DEWITT — According to DeWitt Chief of Police Bruce Ferguson, DeWitt’s population is expanding. Families are coming for its quality schools, and in order to make room for those families, housing developments are being built.

“We are one of the few cities that are still digging holes almost daily,” said Ferguson. “We’ve got two sub-divisions of houses that are being built almost perpetually.”

The two sub-divisions, The Oaks and Wildflower Meadows, according to DeWitt City Administrator Dan Coss, are being built on what used to be vacant land. The rate of new houses being built is about 10 to 15 homes per year. According to Coss, Schroeder Homes is working on the construction for Wildflower Meadows and DTP Construction is developing The Oaks.
