Pulte Home Corporation came back to the Planning and Zoning Commission for a second time, after being denied in October with revised plans for a subdivision called Atwater.
The proposal included the addition of more than 300 houses on what is now the Country Lakes Golf Course, a new street, a traffic signal at Diehl Road and Country Club Boulevard and a park by the development.
Residents nearby worried that the increased traffic, potential for flooding and removal of open land could drive down property values.
But the majority of the board felt this was an appropriate use of the land.
“I do think that because it’s private parcel, something is going to happen to this property and it’s probably not going to be a golf course its probably going to be developed by somebody and at the moment it seems like this is a decent, very well thought out and planned development so i’m inclined to agree and vote affirmative,” said Sean Hastings, Commissioner of Planning and Zoning.
The board voted 4-1 in favor of the proposal with Coyne being the only nay.
Chairwoman Patti Gustin abstained from voting as she was recently elected to city council and will vote on this matter under her new title.
