The second time around for Saddle Ridge’s affordable housing plan is proving to be similar to the first time — so far.
Even with fewer homes proposed for the development, the revised proposal by Saddle Ridge Developers LLC has elicited many of the same concerns from experts and citizens.
“They still haven’t fixed the issues,” said Chris Miles, a member of the Coalition to Save Easton, at the Planning and Zoning Commission’s public hearing Monday night.
From 105 to 99 units, the number of homes has been reduced only 6%, he noted.
Furthermore, the drainage plan is still flawed and concerns about the nine homeowner associations that would manage the property were not addressed in the revision, he said.
The coalition, an arm of Citizens for Easton that is considered an environmental intervener in the proceedings, has called on its same experts to evaluate the revised application. According to Mr. Miles, those experts continue to be concerned about the potential environmental impacts of the development.
