Not to be confused with the Ricks Wade subdivision, Ricks Palmer subdivision was developed in four phases. The original phase was developed in the 1980s and consisted of Rodney Drive, Laleene Dr, and Max Drive. It was quite sometime later when phase 2 was developed. It was officially recorded on January 5, 1993 and added Gary Drive and Nina Drive to the subdivision. Not long after phase 3 of the subdivision was recorded five. This extended Nina Drive, added David Court, extended Laleene Drive, and added Rodney Drive. The final phase was recorded in 1997, extended Nina and Laleene Drive, and also added the homes on Susan Drive which features some of the largest lots in the subdivision.
These homes filled a great niche at the time in the market. Most of these homes are smaller homes with smaller lots. There is a variety of slab-on-grade homes and also homes with basements. The subdivision is located right off of Barney Dairy Road and N. Hill Rd. It borders what used to be Madison high school, but is now Madison junior high. As homeowners sell these homes, it has been a very popular place for the younger generation to get their start with homeownership.
