City Councilman Darrin Ledford on Tuesday night asks the council to reconsider a zoning action on Gray Road from a week before.
At the earlier meeting he made a motion to deny a Planned Unit Development request by G.T. Issa at 1619 Gray Road near Jenkins Road.
On Tuesday night he led an effort to approve the 27-lot PUD on 6.3 acres. He said under current zoning, if the city follows the county's lead in having smaller lot sizes, the site could have as many as 48 lots.
Councilman Ledford said, "The thinking across the board is to increase density in all zones."
Mr. Issa is planning to building homes in the $500,000 to $600,000 range, Mike Price of MAP Engineers said. He said they would be from 19,000 square feet to 24,000.
Three homes would go at the back of the property across a wet section. The Planning staff had recommended no houses there. There will be two detention ponds.
Gray Road residents had opposed the PUD, citing flooding and traffic concerns.
On motion of Councilwoman Jenny Hill, a condition that there be no ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) was deleted. Mr. Price said ADUs are not planned as part of the project.
