Developer Will Share Plans For Land At Meeting

Buster Heitman will unveil new plans for the 52 acres he owns between Nine Mile Road and the North Side landfill at a community meeting Dec. 1.

The new plans for Riverside Village include a 52-bed Alzheimer patient care and treatment facility.

Heitman has changed plans originally calling for 170 homes, including 66 townhouses and eight four-plexes.

Heitman now plans to build a total of 196 units, including 102 houses, five six-plexes, a 12-plex and the Alzheimer facility.

Heitman estimates 442 people will live in the complete subdivision. Another 60, including staff, will be connected with the Alzheimer facility.

All streets in the subdivision will be private, except Rifle Club Court, which will be public.

According to city reports, after 75 lots are built a signal light will be required at the intersection of Rifle Club Road and Nine Mile Road.

The plan includes a 19-acre open tract on the sloping eastern boundary of the subdivision.

Heitman has proposed developments on the site at least twice before. Neighborhood opposition doomed a 1994 proposal; traffic concerns stalled a 1996 plan.

The community meeting is for information only. A public hearing will be scheduled at a later date.
