EDMOND — Planning commissioners have approved preliminary and final plats for a new housing addition with 62 homes on 15 acres, despite neighbors' complaints about the size and number of homes.
The developer, M&J Land Development, said the smallest lot would be 6,000 square feet and others would be 10,268 square feet in the new housing addition on the north side of Covell Road and west of Coltrane Road.
Martin Teuscher, a developer, said he would build a brick wall along Covell Road and the adjoining Asheforde Oaks housing addition.
Ray George, a member of the Asheforde Oaks homeowners association, said the gross housing density in the new addition, to be called Inspirada, is 4.3 per acre while the gross housing density in Asheforde Oaks is 2.5 per acre.
“Inspirada is not compatible,” George said. “There are no amenities. We have a greenbelt, trails, pool, sports court.”
George wanted the developer to redraw the plans to make the homes compatible with those in his housing addition.
