Decision On Controversial Single-Family Home Project Near Pineville Road Delayed Until Dec. 11

Wednesday, November 14, 2018
A controversial project involving the construction of 61 single-family homes on Stringer's Ridge above Pineville Road has been delayed.
 
A number of nearby residents protested the project by William Wilson of Beason View Land Company at a meeting of the City Council.
 
Donna Shepherd, representing the developer, asked for a 30-day deferral to hold a community meeting and "try to reduce the impact of the development on the ridge line."
 
Councilman Chip Henderson said he wanted to see a delay until Dec.
11 "to see if we can get a development that will be beneficial for everybody."
 
The 11.8-acre development is in the 1000 block of Beason Drive, near Pineville and West Elmwood Drive.
 
It was noted that the property is already zoned R-2 and the developer could put more units using that zone than in the requested Planned Unit Development.
 
Residents raised concerns about traffic, water runoff and narrow roads as well as a drop in their property values.
 
The planning staff earlier recommended denial of the rezoning, but the Planning Commission recommended approval.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA.

All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

On Wednesday the ... (click for more)
