Planners consider Richwood request

BURLINGTON - Boone County Planning Commission's Zone Change Committee will hear arguments tonight about a controversial zoning change request to allow a subdivision off Chambers Road near Richwood.

The subdivision, Buffalo Trace, would use a "clustered" design on a 53-acre site with 128 homes on 44.3 acres, nine acres of open space and one home on a nine-acre lot. More than 100 residents have hired Covington attorney Phil Taliaferro to help them fight the subdivision proposed by Bold Homes.

The meeting is at 5 p.m. in courtroom 3A at the County Administration Building, 2950 Washington St., Burlington.

The zone change committee will make a recommendation to the full planning commission, which will then vote on the change and send it to Fiscal Court for final action.
