Planning Commission OKs Single-Family Home Projects For Hunter Road, Ooltewah-Ringgold Road

Monday, June 09, 2014

The Planning Commission on Monday approved rezoning for a project for 49 single-family homes at 5050, 5336 and 5344 Hunter Road.

Chattanooga Construction Company/Lighthouse Enterprises, LLC is planning the project.

Mike Price, who represents the developer, said a requirement that the developer improve a curvy section of Hunter Road may kill the project. He said he thought moving the entrance to the development should be sufficient.

Mike Wilson, who lives nearby, said there have been several efforts to develop the site.

He said the nearby road is one of the worst in the county with a high accident rate.

Mr. Wilson said the current proposal is the best one to come forward yet.

However, he said residents wanted to see a lower density.

Developer Mike Moon gained a recommendation for approval for a single-family home project by East Hamilton Middle/High School on Ooltewah-Ringgold Road.

His partner is Barry Payne, a Planning Commission member who excused himself while the project was being discussed.

Mr. Moon said neighbors object to the traffic connecting to a side road, and he said he is hopeful the state will approve a direct tie-in to Ooltewah-Ringgold Road.

Sixty homes are planned at the site.

This is before they get into bigger beasts -- horses and cattle – yet what appears to be easy most certainly is not. ... (click for more)
