The site plan for the development which includes the Nueva Vista golf course is in place, and the result is over 620 lots for homes and three for shopping malls.

The site plan was due to be presented to the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission by 3:30 p.m. Monday. However, this was postponed as a sitemap change was made this week.

The sitemap is the next step in the saga between the developers of the course – which includes the Nueva Vista golf course – and residents of the neighboring areas of Grasslands Estates and Grasslands Estates West.

Residents of surrounding neighborhoods were concerned about the elimination of the golf course, specifically the green space. Among the concerns was flooding, as water areas on the property have been reported to overflow when Midland receives substantial amounts of rain – sometimes severely.

The site plan shows areas of green space on the east and south sides of the property. The number of lots on the site map shows 76.32 acres of green space.

The plan also shows 626 lots for all types of housing. Most of the lots are dedicated to townhouses (180) on the north side of the property. Row houses are shown to be on lots 30 feet wide.

There are 110 lots designated “single family-1” or these larger lots up to 80 feet wide. These larger lots are found along the border of the houses inside the property – the houses closest to the Grasslands Estates areas.

There are 147 “single-family-2” lots (or those up to 65 feet wide) and 134 “single-family-3” homes (or those 50 feet wide). These houses are located in the center of the development.

The sitemap also shows 55 lots for townhouses or gardenhouses (those that have no lot lines). There is also a business center and three lots at the far north of the retail development.

“(The plan) is designed to look like a lot of green space because the SF-1 lots are colored a similar green to the surrounding green space,” said Autumn Winkles, with the Fore Midland organization. , in an email. ” It’s frustrating. Not to mention the high density of houses crammed into the area. … I believe that due diligence is not being applied and that the existing communities of the Midland will be the ones who pay the price if it is not done correctly.

Fore Midland officials believe the best use of the land is for it to become a “multi-functional green space that can continue to capture runoff from surrounding areas,” Winkles said.

Amy Stretcher Burkes said council members said they were contacted about this issue more than others while they were on city council. She added that there are over 1,500 signatures at The petition calls on city council to save the green space and stop annexation and rezoning. This issue is of great public interest and more and more people are getting involved on a daily basis.

The sitemap for the development indicates Midland-Odessa Golf Corp. of Odessa as owner and Parkhill, Smith and Cooper as an engineer.
