Council OKs higher density for Richmond Hill Plantation

Residents living in Richmond Hill Plantation will have more neighbors than may have been expected next spring following a decision from the Richmond Hill City Council on Tuesday.

During its regular meeting in City Hall, the council unanimously approved a request from John and Meagan Mowry of Homes of Integrity Construction to increase the density of homes in two planned neighborhoods of Richmond Hill Plantation.

The number of homes in the Heathrow section will increase from 63 to 72, and the number of homes in the Clayborn phase will increase from 57 to 61.

In April, the council denied a similar request to increase the lots in Heathrow to 80. But the council’s nod of approval Tuesday came after Jack Mullins, president of the Richmond Hill Plantation Homeowners Association, said an agreement had been reached between the HOA and the developers regarding construction of the new homes.

Stipulations set out by the HOA include a requirement that new homes be a minimum of 2,000 square feet and that architectural parameters, particularly landscaping, be pre-approved.
