Some neighbors of the proposed development have opposed parts of the project's plan.

In Greenville, the city council has approved a proposed plat for a new subdivision on the south side of the city. However, the council postponed a final decision on a proposed $4.4 million agreement with the developers. The Greenville Herald Banner reports that about 150 people attended Tuesday’s regular meeting of the city council.

The proposed subdivision, called Forest Ridge Estates, would be built by Rockwall-based Altura Homes. Residents in the Hunters Run neighborhood have expressed opposition to a proposed road linking Hunters Run with the new development. Residents of Hunters Run say their neighborhood’s small streets could not accommodate the increased traffic.

The Herald Banner reports the council approved an amended plat that placed a fire gate on Cheltenham Street where an extended road would link Hunters Run with Forest Ridge Estates. The road would only be passable during emergencies.

The Banner reports the council approved the zoning change by a 6 to 1 vote and approved the plat by a 5 to 2 margin. The council did not authorize the $4.4 million agreement with Altura. Councilman T.J. Goss told the Herald Banner the think the public needs more time to review the agreement.
