CEDAR RAPIDS — A housing concept that blends urban living with a working farm took a step forward Wednesday when Linn County supervisors said they want a local firm to serve as master developer of the site east of Cedar Rapids.Supervisors voted to authorize negotiations with the Hiawatha-based Ahmann Companies to act as master developer of Dows Farm, a concept that took cues from other “agri-communities” including one underway near Des Moines.Linn County Planning and Development Director Les Beck said the selection team was impressed by the timeline Ahmann proposed during interviews for the 251-residential unit project that will be built on county-owned land.“The tentative time frame that Ahmann put together had a four- to five-year build out,” Beck said.
