New Stratton Downs Development
- Dec 2016: Plats for a proposed new development along Stop 30. Opportunity for a Bike Route through this development to Wynncrest as we previously suggested on page 10 & 11 North-Central Hville (Feb 16).
- Dec 2016: Section of Drakes Creek Rd to be removed (between southern entrance and pumping station). Suggested: a bike/ped trail to replace this section.
Connector from Durham farms to Saundersville Road (once in the old planning for this area) is not in the current plan.
- Dec 2016: Issue: lack of connection to Spearpoint and Cross Bows, thereby increasing already heavy traffic on Drakes Creek Road. Neighborhood residents reported as against having school traffic on those roads. Suggestion: Open these roads to Bike/Ped traffic.
Drakes Creek Greenway
- Dec 2016: Greenway connector to Stop 30. City was promoting a trail along the west side in the Davidson Academy property. Our Recommendation: run trail along the east side and include connector to northern point of the Streets of Indian (ref: page 17 North-Central Hville (Feb 16))
Batey Property Development
- Dec 2017: Attempts by property developer to get property rezone fail. Developer cancels purchase plans. City is unable to purchase the land for a park. Local residents formulate plans to purchase property and put in Land Trust for future park. Click here to follow project.
