COURTHOUSE — A city council vote on a rezoning request that would allow 80 single-family homes in Princess Anne Meadows, a proposed neighborhood near Christopher Farms, is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 5.
The matter was pushed from December to January due to a procedural issue, city officials said last month.
Planning Director Barry Frankenfield said there was an error in notifying interest parties about the vote, so the matter was postponed. The proposal already had been deferred from the Nov. 17 meeting.
The project has faced opposition from people who live in Christopher Farms over access to Princess Anne Road. Some have said they would like access to the neighorhood to come from Holland Road.
Henley, who has shared concerns about access to Princess Anne Road, said the developer, Kotarides Developers, LLC, has made changes to address connectivity and the appearance of the project from Princess Anne Road.
Access from the neighborhood to Princess Anne Road would end if the proposed London Bridge Road extension is built, shifting access to the east side of the project.
The applicant will include information in sales and homeowners documents, according to a city staff report.
The site is more than 42 acres of developable land from 11 undeveloped parcels presently zoned agricultural, according a city report.
Lisa Hartman, who lives in Christopher Farms, said the project has made a number of needed changes, but she still wants the project to be delayed until after road studies are completed that might give a better picture of how the development will fit into the area.
