Developer says he'll resubmit request for special zoning

June 19, 2002

A day after the owner of a property pulled his request to build a 990-unit residential development across from the Black Rock Golf Course, he told the Washington County Commissioners that he'd be back with another request soon.

"I believe I should withdraw and come back sometime soon with a more desirable plan for the county," Manny Shaool said at a County Commissioners meeting Tuesday.

Shaool did not elaborate on what changes would be made to the plan.

The commissioners were scheduled to vote on Shaool's request Tuesday. He withdrew his application on Monday.

Had the commissioners voted to deny the plan, Shaool would have had to wait a year to refile. By withdrawing before the vote, he can reapply at anytime.

He was seeking a Planned Urban Development special zoning designation to develop about 220 acres off Mount Aetna Road. A PUD allows for a higher density project than would normally be allowed under existing zoning.

The plan called for 217 single-family homes, 70 duplexes, 223 townhouses and 480 condominiums.
