A Greenwood manufactured homes community has received approval to build on additional lots.
Pebble Creek wants to build single-family manufactured homes on another 41 lots on the property it owns west of U.S. 31 and south of Worthsville Road. Pebble Creek has about 250 homes on the property now.
It’s the third of three sections planned for the property. Pebble Creek initially received approval for the zoning in 2001 from the city. Plans to add the houses were delayed due to the economic downturn in 2008, but demand for housing is on the rise, said Eric Prime, an attorney representing Pebble Creek.
“There is a huge demand. They have people knocking down the doors to move in there,” he said.
The Greenwood Advisory Plan Commission gave the approval for the zoning at its Monday meeting.
Pebble Creek plans to begin work in late October, Prime said. A finish date for the project is not set.
The third section was originally proposed to have 98 lots, but that number has shrunk due to flood plain and drainage issues that required a retention pond, he said.
After the added 41 lots are finished, houses could also be added to another 20 to 25 lots on the property, Prime said.
