EDMOND — A controversial commercial and duplex development near Oak Ridge Drive and Second Street will go before the city council for the third time in two months Monday.
Council members meet at 5:30 p.m. at 20 S Littler Ave.
The latest delay was caused by a typographical error in a letter sent to nearby property owners, which required new notices to be mailed.
The Hanson Family Trust wants to change the zoning from restricted commercial to a planned unit development so it can build a 24,000-square-foot retail shopping center on 5.55 acres on the southern half of the property.
The developer also wants to build duplexes with 10 buildings and 20 units on 4.38 acres to the north in what is to be called Bradbury Station.
Opponents are concerned about the increased traffic onto Oak Ridge Drive. At the Jan. 28 meeting, 14 people addressed the council.
They all noted the width of Oak Ridge Drive is not constructed to city standards, and it is difficult for two vehicles to pass on the street. And they were concerned the increased traffic would cause additional problems.
The residents were in favor of retaining the current zoning as they felt it would generate less traffic than the duplexes.
Windsong housing addition is located to the north and Mason Oaks housing addition to the northeast. Ridge Point housing addition, to the east, is a higher-density development than the proposed duplexes.
The duplexes are expected to rent for $1,500 to $2,000 a month.
The developer is first asking that Edmond's zoning plan be amended which would allow the zoning change.
Without the zoning change, the entire 9.93 acres could be developed as commercial, which the developer said would create more traffic.
