(BLOOMINGTON) - A Habitat for Humanity group is planning to build possibly hundreds of homes on an 84-acre site in Bloomington.

Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County CEO Darryl Neher says the land on the city's south side would allow it to build a multi-income neighborhood with anywhere from 260 to 350 housing units. The (Bloomington) Herald-Times reports that could include Habitat's traditional volunteer-built houses, container homes and multi-family housing.

Monroe County Commissioners are preparing to transfer the county-owned property to the nonprofit organization.

Neher says the land transfer would give Habitat enough land to continue projects over the next 10 years.
