"Another huge subdivision planned for Providence district

A city planning subcommittee reviewed plans today for yet another huge

residential development in west Huntsville, a 763-home development near

where Huntsville abuts Monrovia.

The proposed Anslee Farms would consist of 186 townhomes and 575

single-family houses within the 340-acres. The development would be zoned

for the new Providence K-8 school zone, which is already near capacity since

opening two years ago.

Thousands of new home sites have been approved in the Providence area over

the past couple of years since a new tax district was approved that helped

build the the K-8 and the new Columbia High School.

The full Planning Commission meets Tuesday."

The roads can't handle it, the schools are already at capacity, but let's go ahead and give it the stamp of approval! Does anyone in west Huntsville, Monrovia, Harvest... have a long term plan or do they just approve these subdivisions and then scramble for a solution. Of course, any development downtown is met with fierce opposition, but where are the complaints when 400 acres is eaten up by another subdivision?

Huh? :blink:

City Planner Marie Bostick said the total layout plan couldn't be considered because all of the tract isn't in the city.

The main entrance to Anslee Farms juts off Blake Bottom. Strong said an overpass there has been promised since 1994, and he is continuing to seek the $5 million to build it.

It's ok if you make subdivisions this large just as long as they are TND/mixed-use and not sprawl makers. For instance, here in Greenville there is a new development proposed that will consist of 1,865 homes, but it will all be TND/mixed-use: http://greenvilleonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/...EWS01/702250356 Here is the website for this development: http://latone.net/ Of course this isn't the only large number of homes in one development going up here either. Hopefully something like this development going up in Greenville can be done with these subdivisions in Huntsville to cut down on the amount of sprawl they create. Greenville and Huntsville are basically having the same problems with sprawl currently and both cities are developing very fast with infrastructure improvements on roads not keeping up. Hopefully something can be done soon, so our cities don't turn into another Atlanta.

Yeah, these homes probably won't sell if this subdivision is in the Johnson school district. Another factor in the success of this development is the extension of the Northern Bypass to the Parkway. As soon as that is finished, there will be many more developments like this on the northside, probably in the county if the city schools aren't improved.

these may be in the Lee High district which will have a new school. Much more new development is coming due the new high school.

more houses, this is not to far from the planned huge mixed use center planned at I-565 and Zierdt Rd.

Nearly 800 homes are being planned on a site next to Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge in west Huntsville.

A city planning subcommittee this morning approved layout plans for a subdivision on newly annexed land between Wall Triana Highway and the Zierdt Road area.

The property is south of Beadle Lane along the western border of the refuge. Plans for the development, Promenade at The River Landing, call for 462 town homes and 330 single-family houses. Plans are also in the works for another 700 or so homes on the north side of Beadle Lane, according to Mike Culbreath, who works for one of the developers.
