100+ homes to be developed

May 7, 2007

Albany - 144 new homes may soon be under construction in Dougherty County. EMC Engineering Services is requesting the Dougherty County Commission rezone about 50 acres of agricultural land to residential to start the process for a new gated community off of Byron Ridge Drive.

People who live nearby say they don't have a problem with the new neighborhood, but want to see another entry to the property to handle the large amount of traffic it will eventually generate.

The development will be on private property, so the property owners will be responsible for street lights, roads, and storm drainage systems.
