The 51 house development that is to be across Hockett Road from Readers Pointe Drive was approved by the Planning Commission, in a 5-0 vote. The next and final step for approval is a vote by the Board of Supervisors on December 5.
I spoke before the commission, asking that a Northbound left turn lane into the Goins Road section of the project be built, regardless of the findings of a speed study. I also requested a walking path be built along Hockett Road, for future connections, and that a short boardwalk be built to connect the main 40 house section to the 11 house section on Goins Road.
The Commission asked the applicant for a response to my suggestions and they indicated “they will take it under advisement.” There were no other public speakers.
