104 New Homes Planned On Ooltewah-Ringgold Road Near Standifer Gap Road

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

A developer is planning to build 104 single-family homes on 32 acres on Ooltewah-Ringgold Road near Standifer Gap Road.

The property owned by Rebecca Woodson is across from Houston Lane.

CLM Developing LLC is planning the project.

Density will be 3.25 dwelling units per acre.

The staff of the Regional Planning Agency is recommending approval.

The report says, "The proposal is supported by the adopted Land Use Plan for the general area which recommends low density residential.

•The proposed use is consistent with surrounding uses.

•The proposal is consistent with the development form of the area.

•The proposed residential density is compatible with the surrounding densities.

•The proposal would be an extension of an existing R-1 zoning district on the north side of the site.

•The proposal would continue a precedent for future R-1 Single-Family Residential District requests along Ooltewah-Ringgold Road.

•This site provides an opportunity for road right-of -way connection between Standifer Hills Drive and Ooltewah-Ringgold Road. Such public street connectivity would provide secondary and emergency alternatives in an area of the community where they are currently limited.

•The transportation infrastructure is adequate to absorb additional capacity. The Hamilton County Engineer’s Office does not object to this request.

•The applicant is encouraged to consult with the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office for technical design requirements.

The case goes before the Planning Commission on Monday at 1 p.m.
