Plan to place 86 new homes off Newport Way draws anger, frustration

NEW — 11:06 a.m. Jan. 11, 2016

A group of about 20 residents gathered Jan. 7 to hear preliminary details regarding a development that would add up to 86 single-family homes in the area of Newport Way and State Route 900.

Current plans call for the new homes to be situated back from Newport Way, on what is commonly called the Bergsma property.

The main access to the subdivision is planned for just north of the intersection of Newport and SR900, in roughly the 1700 to 1800 block of Newport Way. Another access point will sit on the south end of the subdivision, connecting with the Talus development via Harvey Manning Park. Read more »
