MONROE — A new neighborhood and a new business are coming to the Monroe area this year.

This November, Redwood Monroe will be ready for new residents. The neighborhood includes 112 single-story apartment homes that range between 1,294 and 1,709 square feet and come in seven different floor plans. Monthly rent will start at $1,549.

Each floor plan has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a two-car garage with storage. Homes come with washer and dryer hookups and there are pet-friendly accommodations, according to a release from Redwood Living.

Redwood Living, based in Ohio, owns and developed the new neighborhood located at 3306 Secrest Price Road near the intersection of Highway 74 and Fowler Secrest Road. They are pre-leasing at this time.
