The Bartonville Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday night voted 4 to 1 to hold a second public hearing for Ladera, a proposed senior retirement development, on Sept. 3rd at 7 p.m. at Bartonville Town Hall.
Commissioners requested additional information from the Town Engineer and Fire Marshal in regards to sewer and fire suppression.
If approved, Ladera will be built behind Bartonville Town Center and will include 220 individual homes ranging in size from 2,157 square feet to 3,755 square feet including two-car garages, patios and porches.
Values are estimated at between $270,000 and $600,000 for the 180 courtyard villas and 40 larger hillside villas.
The gated community would feature an activity center, fitness trails, two lakes, streams, wildflower meadows and groves of trees, said John Delin, partner of Integrity Group LLC, a family-owned business that recently opened a similar community in Keller.
The density with 220 homes on an estimated 80 acres would be 2.75 homes per acre, a consistent metric used by all municipalities in Texas, according to G&A Consultants, which is working with Integrity on the proposed development.
