LAUREL PARK TOWN COUNCIL HEARS OPPOSITION TO PROPOSED "COTTAGES AT ARCADIA VIEWS"

PROPOSED FOR THE 2800 BLOCK OF BREVARD ROAD, HIGHWAY 64 WEST    

Lp1

About 100 residents of Laurel Park and nearby communities Hunter’s Crossing and Hawthorn Hills expressed their strong opposition on Tuesday to the proposed “Cottages at Arcadia Views".

A quasi-judicial public hearing was held concerning a conditional use permit for the proposed development of 28 one-story duplex residential buildings, which will be the first phase of a 5-phase plan by Ohio developer WXZ Development for some 90 acres the developer owns along Brevard Road and up Davis Mountain.

Concerns raised by speakers at the hearing included flood issues with part of the property near a floodplain, the possibility of increased crime, and higher density housing. But the over-riding concern is with the increase in traffic along Brevard Road,

Traffic studies have apparently indicated that no left-turn lane into the proposed development would be necessary, but that doesn’t convince those who oppose the development who cite an ever-increasing volume of traffic on Highway 64 west.

Laurel Park Town Council is set to vote on that conditional use permit, with additional conditions attached to it, in their work session on October 12
