The Troutman Town Council will consider a rezoning request for a prospective 225-home development the planning and zoning board recommended the council deny.
The development has been proposed as two clusters of homes on either side of a stream cutting between the two adjacent properties totalling 120.15 acres.
Nest Communities LLC requested one of the two parcels to be rezoned from rural suburban to mixed residential, allowing for a greater density of homes. The other property is already mixed residential. The request matches the town’s future land use plan.
Residents near the area, already concerned about the traffic to be created by the 700-home Falls Cove development under construction nearby, claim the entrance to the development is in the middle of a dangerous curve where people have regularly been run of the road by flatbed trailers.
The planning and zoning board vote was 4-1.
Troutman Town Council meets at 7 p.m. Thursday at Troutman Town Hall.
