Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Nineteen single-family homes are planned along Dallas Road at The Colony at Normal Park.

The property includes 5.75 acres in the 1000 block of Dallas Road.

Joseph Ingram is planning the development on the site owned by Leslie Fox.

The property is presently zoned R-1 Residential. The request is for a planned unit development (PUD). It goes before the Planning Commission on Monday at 1 p.m.

The proposed PUD plan has a density of 3.3 units per acre with 19 single-family detached dwelling units, interior and exterior sidewalks, landscaping, street trees, parks and green infrastructure.

There will be one entrance and exit off Dallas Road.
