Developers file expansion plan for Fulton project

September 02, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The developers of Maple Lawn Farms, the neo-traditional, mixed-use project under construction in Fulton, began the formal process yesterday that would expand the development by about 50 percent.

An amended preliminary plan containing changes to the project discussed with residents at a public meeting in July was filed with county planners, who must examine it and schedule a Planning Board hearing. After Planning Board consideration, the county Zoning Board would also hold a public hearing and decide whether the additions should be allowed.

The changes would add 97 acres, for a total of 605.3, and would increase the number of residential units from 1,116 to 1,634, while the amount of commercial space would increase from just under 1.2 million to nearly 1.9 million square feet, the plan said.

The most contentious change would add 242 villa-style homes for seniors, starting in 2015, the plan said. That would raise the overall density from 2.3 to 2.7 units an acre.
