There was more good news for Ponderosa Homes, which also won planning and City Council approval to build 31 homes on a 19.5 acre site along Trenery Drive and Martin Avenue. That's four more than originally allowed for the site, but these homes will be much smaller and finally will be built as Ponderosa sees the local housing market improving.
Not so happy, though, are neighbors next to a house at 205 Neal St., where Realtor Dave Cunningham and Architect Charles Huff want to add more space on the first and second floors. Their first plan also lacked appeal for the Planning Commission because of what planners called a "boxy" look. So the two came back with a more stylish design and less intrusive side yard that won the commission's OK, but still didn't please the neighbors, who have now appealed the decision. Cunningham and Huff will now have to make their case all over again to the City Council on Jan. 10.
