June 22, 2012 Developer Pulls Masengill Springs Development from City Agenda

The Masengill Springs Development and Rezoning was pulled from the City Council agendas at the beginning of the June 19th meeting.  Developers Don Bunch and Mike Bunch are proposing moving the current Food City on West AJ Hwy across the street along with other development in the area of the old tobacco warehouse.

The proposal met with considerable opposition form residents in the North Economy Road area at a previous Planning Commission meeting where the development was sent on to city council on a 4-2 vote with one abstention.

Even though the proposal was pulled from the agenda at the start, many residents from the area were at the City Council meeting and spoke about their concerns about drainage problems and traffic problems in having an exit from the development onto North Economy Road.

There will be more discussion at a future date.
