WASHINGTON (WEEK) – A win Monday night for residents of a Washington neighborhood as the city council will wait to decide on a development project.
The Washington City Council was set to vote on a plat amendment for the Trails Edge subdivision. That measure would increase the number of homes that could be built on vacant land in the neighborhood.
Some neighbors packed tonight’s meeting because they say the amendment would worsen existing water drainage issues. After listening, the council decided to table the vote until they get more information on those runoff issues.
“There’s already a drainage issue in our neighborhood,” Beth Black, a Trails Edge subdivision resident, said. “People are very concerned that more houses and more concrete means more drainage problems down the road. Tonight, we were so happy to know the city council heard our concerns.”
