The city of Delaware’s Planning Commission approved two separate development projects for City Council consideration that consists of more than 150 single-family homes.
The commission on Wednesday night approved Bowtown Delaware’s final subdivision plat for Old Colony Estates Phase 2 that consist of 55 single-family lots on about 15 acres north of Bowtown Road and west of the Kennsington Place subdivision.
Council approved in October 2002 the engineering drawings and final subdivision plat. The developer constructed the infrastructure in Phase 1. Due to the 2008 recession, plans to build the development and the houses were halted. Ryan Homes purchased the lots in 2014 and constructed the homes for Phase 1.
But the final subdivision plat and engineering drawings for Phase 2 have expired.
The commission also approved T&R Properties’ preliminary development plan and subdivision plat for Willowbrook West, which consists 96 single-family units on more than 15 acres, located on the west side of North Houk Road, north of Arthur Place.
Ryan Homes are partners with T&R Properties and Bowtown Delaware for both projects and will build the actual homes, Planning and Community Director Dave Efland said, while T&R and Bowtown will develop the site’s infrastructure.
Council will have the final say of the requests.
Additionally, the commission tabled a request for the city to vacate an alley east of Euclid Avenue between West Fountain and West Lincoln avenues. A family that resides on Euclid seeks to take ownership of the alley in order to make needed improvements.
The commission will meet again at city hall, 1 S. Sandusky St., in council chambers 7 p.m. Jan. 18.
