ARLINGTON — A dirty, drooping banner on the side of a big red barn near the edge of the city advertises “New Homes and Lots” for sale.
It’s been there for nearly a decade, but it’s about to come down.
The lots aren’t for sale anymore. About 150 acres on the south side of Highway 530 had been platted and permitted as a new 15-house subdivision. One house was built and sold. Then the rest of the project was foreclosed on after the recession crippled the housing market.
