LEEDS, Ala. (WIAT) — A new housing development and elementary school could soon break ground in Leeds, but a few technicalities still need to be worked out.

The Leeds City Council heard from the public on the proposed development around The Outlet Shops of Grand River outlet complex on Monday evening.

All who spoke at the meeting were in favor of the development.

The school board still has to vote later in the week to deal with their side of the funding for infrastructure, but most people see the potential new housing development and school as a big win for the city.

Mayor David Miller says they will present their plan to the public on Thursday at 6 p.m., and they hope to break ground sometime in November on the homes and the new school.
