JACKSON, WI — Harbor Homes and Hillcrest Builders were announced on Wednesday as the two companies who would be constructing homes in The Oaks of Jackson, Washington County’s Next Generation Housing (NGH) pilot development in Jackson.
Members of the two organizations, village government and Washington County government gathered at the Jackson Municipal Complex Wednesday afternoon for the announcement. “Harbor Homes and Hillcrest Builders, welcome to the village of Jackson,” said Jackson Village President Brian Heckendorf. “I know you have done some other things in the village already, but it’s very, very amazing to me to have two high-quality builders that are going to be building these homes for the Next Generation Housing program.”
According to Neumann Companies (of which Harbor Homes is a subsidiary) President Steve Decleene, Harbor Homes is perfectly suited for the NGH program.
“It’s no secret that we’ve got home affordability problems in America, and we know we got them here in Wisconsin,” said Decleene. “… Quite frankly, we created Harbor Homes for that reason back in 2018. In some terms here, I’ve been waiting for this moment for five years, so I’m really, really excited to be here and kick off this program.”
