StoryBook Homes broke ground on its new subdivision, Boulder Hills Estates, Wednesday morning, reiterating its commitment to the community of Boulder City.
“It’s been a long road,” said Wayne Laska, co-principal of the Las Vegas-based builder. “We’re delighted the neighbors have accepted us. My goal is to live up to their expectations.”
The single-family home development, to be built near the intersection of Bristlecone Drive and Adams Boulevard, will be the first new subdivision in the community in nearly 30 years. StoryBook started the process of purchasing the land and designing the subdivision more than a year ago.
“We didn’t give up,” Laska said. “We just felt like this was a good thing for Boulder City. … Thank you for having us.”
Laska said that when the project was experiencing some problems he talked to Mayor Rod Woodbury, who encouraged him to reach out to the neighbors in the area, and the project turned around.
“We are not doing anything without meeting with the neighbors first,” he said.
Laska said grading on the property should begin in about two weeks.
