The City Forest of Clark County was an immense and intriguing project. It consisted of thirty individual homes, twenty-one of which are in the city of Springfield and the other nine in Clark County. The houses were completed in a timely fashion and after only nine months of construction were leased and inhabited. This was a government and privately funded project. USDA Rural development dollars and State of Ohio tax credits were utilized. In total there are six different house designs, each with individual features, unlike floor plans, exterior appearances, and color schemes. Porch variations were provided to distinguish them further. Each house is two stories with four bedrooms, two full baths, a spacious kitchen, connections for a washer and dryer, a garage with openers, and a covered front porch. Varied color schemes and exterior facades allow many of these homes to be in the same area without giving the appearance of a “cookie-cutter” development. Each house fits naturally into its surroundings with close proximity to schools, churches, and shopping.
