Areas May be getting 115 new neighbors and some residents Aren t sure they want them. Montgomery City Council at its april 5 meeting considered the proposal of the Chelsea Moore co. To develop 24 acres in Blue Ash Collett property which abuts Montgomery at Cinderella Shadow Hill Way Deerfield and Huckleberry streets in Montgomery and which lies next to 1-71. The property is pie shaped narrow at Deerfield and fanning out behind the streets in storybook acres. The property is presently soiled for Light Industry in Blue Ash. That City s planning commission considered the rezoning of the site to residential to accommodate the plan at its april 6 meeting but no decision was reached and it will be considered again at the May 4 meeting. Blue Ash planning commission appears generally to be in favor of the proposal but has some questions As to traffic density and Green belts according to. Deputy City manager Marvin Thompson. A representative for 20 families residents of Deerfield re. Lanyard and Shadow Hill Way read a prepared letter to Montgomery Council about the proposal april 5 and voiced concerns about the proposed development and the City a participation in it through providing Access to City sewers. Many area residents attended the Council meeting. The most immediate concerns of the residents Are Over the increased traffic flow on Deerfield and Shadow Hill and the possible devaluation of their properties. The letter acknowledges the real threat of the property being developed As an Industrial Park. Quot with either development plan Montgomery emerges As the loser Quot the letter states. Quot Long after the developers have left and Quot the plan is completed what remains for Montgomery is increased traffic problems and a further deterioration of the desirability of the a representative of the Chelsea Moore co.

Lots along the Border of Montgomery adjacent to the Homes in. Storybook acres also a swim Pool and Tennis courts. The Homes Are designed to sell in the $80,000 to $100,000 Range he said. The condominiums would be in the $80,000 Price Range. He said they would be the most expensive condominiums built in Hamilton county. The Chelsea Moore representative also said Quot the company Hopes to preserve As Many Trees As possible. The reason the City of Montgomery comes into the picture Quot at All considering the property is in Blue Ash is that Council is considering an agreement to allow tap in to Montgomery sewers in Exchange for some control of the development such As density and traffic pattern. Council for instance wants a 60-40 split of traffic from the development 60 percent to Deerfield and 40 percent to the Shadow Hill area. Also Council does not want the Street to run through creating a Short Cut from Deerfield to Shadow Hill. The Chelsea Moore plan shows a through Street which the company representative says Blue Ash needs to provide City services to the area. Council would prefer a Cul de Sac of the streets which service the development creating a More controlled traffic pattern. The matter was not voted on and will be considered further by Council.
