New development coming to Benson

Posted

A proposed housing development is slated to bring 79 new homes to Benson in the state’s fastest-growing county.

The Benson Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a request to rezone 26 acres of land on North Honeycutt Street for the new development at its latest meeting.

Shandy Hill of 550-Cash LLC, owner and developer of the property, proposes to construct 36 townhouses on approximately 1.87 acres of land and 41 single family homes on 15.88 acres, according to the project’s description submitted to commissioners. The Weston Hills Planned Development also incorporates 4.3 acres of open space with amenities, including mulched walking trails and a picnic shelter. Gray Wolf Homes will design the residential units.

The townhomes will front North Honeycutt Street and be within walking distance to Benson Middle School about 500 yards away from the property line. Hill told Benson Planning Board members that there is a need for townhomes with affordable housing in the area.

Hill also owns a 5.4-acre parcel of land across from the planned development on North Honeycutt Street that he hopes to develop for a commercial business in the future.

A master plan for Weston Hills contains two stormwater retention ponds on the site.
