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.
