Homeowners protest new development

November 20, 2007

Albany - Dozens of homeowners turn out to protest a new development in their neighborhood. Members of the homeowners association at Country Club Estates in Albany say a new development going up in their neighborhood will drop their property values.

A 50 unit residential apartment complex for senior citizens is being built in the area, called Dalewood Estates. Trinity Development Corporation is developing the site, and all permits have been met. Plus HUD guidelines have been satisfied, but homeowners like Bob Hutchinson question what impact the multi-family housing unit will have on his own property value.  He said, "This is a lifetime dream for folks. You want a home. You want something nice that your kids and grand kids can come back to. You want it to be a safe community, a lean community and that's why we're down here fighting. We're fighting for our investment. We're fighting for our lifetime dream."

Residents of Country Club estates already sued the owner of the land seeking an injunction to stop construction, but Superior Court judge Loring Gray denied that request in February of last year.
