Back in October, the residents of S. Wyoming Avenue faced the Board of Commissioners and asked for help. Hardy Houder Real Estate Group proposed plans to the board to construct a cluster of 10 townhouses and four semi-detached homes in place of three pre-existing homes on the neighborhood block just off Lancaster Avenue at 9, 11, 13 and 19 S. Wyoming Ave.

Despite acknowledging the concerns of the residents, the Board of Commissioners granted approved Hardy Houder Real Estate Group’s tentative sketch plan on Oct. 19. Now, the development company is taking the next logical step: applying for a preliminary land development plan to demolish the three homes it will need to build 14 more.

We’ll keep you updated on the progress of the application, which will be reviewed by the Planning Commission on Feb. 6.
