The Danville Planning Commission is set to consider adopting the environmental review, development plan and major subdivision request for a housing development at Old Blackhawk Road Tuesday night.
If approved, the 2.97-acre site for the proposed project by applicant Braddock & Logan Homes would be rezoned into a new development district and subdivided to create 19 residential lots. The final development plan would also provide for architectural design and landscape details for the development.
The project is located at 3743 and 3755 Old Blackhawk Road, and ius bordered to the west by Old Blackhawk Road, with single family residences to the north, east and south. It would create 17 single family detached residential units and two single family attached units. The two attached residential units would be "below market rate" and smaller than the detached units.
The project application was submitted in July 2016, and underwent five rounds of plan revisions and review by the Design Review Board, during which time several community members voiced concerns regarding traffic, tree removal and other land use issues.
In late June of this year, the applicant held a developer-sponsored neighborhood meeting and a month later, the Planning Commission held a study session for preliminary review of the project.
The applicant has responded to various concerns raised at these meetings, at some points by modifying the development itself. In particular, the applicant added an internal sidewalk, reduced the size of some of the units, slightly increased overall garage parking, relocated and reduced the size of the below market rate units.
After the initial environmental review document was circulated for public comment, the town received seven letters from individuals and organizations, who in particular cited concerns about traffic and safety on Old Blackhawk Road, and the removal of trees for the project.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Meeting Hall, 201 Front Street.
