Caleb Fuqua, a Robertson County resident planning The Parks development in White House, cleared another city hurdle Thursday, June 15 after his planned 748-unit subdivision behind Heritage High School received another nod to proceed from the city.

The White House Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved the rezoning required for Fuqua's development three-to-one.

Alderman Clif Hutson voted against the plans and one alderman was absent, according to Mayor Mike Arnold.

"You can't make everyone happy," Arnold said. "But I believe this development is going to be a jewel for Robertson County."

On Monday, May 15, Fuqua faced a tough crowd in a public hearing at White House City Hall to discuss his preliminary plan for The Parks, but of a dozen people who spoke in opposition to the plan, only one was a White House city resident, according to city officials.

Mayor Arnold said there was another packed house for last Thursday's meeting and that Fuqua has been bending over backwards to try to work with area residents on the development.

"This will be the nicest development in Robertson County," Arnold said. "He's got 82 acres of open space there. He's going to spend $2 million on improving Pinson Lane. He's probably going to spend another $1 million on the Pleasant Grove Road intersection before he ever sells a house."

The second reading to approve the development is scheduled to take place in a special-called meeting on June 29, according to the mayor.

How come this article mentions nothing about Alderman Hutson making a motion to defer the vote? This was a very important topic to leave out of your news article. How can the alderman make an informed decision when the future of the interesection at Cross Plains rd and hwy 76 is still undecided. The first article written on this topic was full of information and unbiased. This article in my opinion lacks pertinent information and is biased towards the city and approval of the rezoning request. Maybe you should interview some of the concerned residents to compliment your articles.
