Maumelle: Planning Commission meets tonight

The monthly meeting of the Maumelle Planning Commission will be at 6:30 p.m. tonight at City Hall.

The agenda is a relatively full one as commissioners have six items of new business to deal with. The most significant is the Newton Creek Commercial Addition.

Located at the White Oak Crossing interchange and east of Interstate 40, the 236.39-acre lot, seen below, runs along I-40 and this preliminary plat would be the first step in developing it for commercial use by allowing roads to be built, including a connection to Hwy. 365.

Also on the agenda is the Stone Canyon Addition at 14005 Old Maumelle Road as the plans for that residential development are coming into sharper focus.

There, the roughly 65 acres would go from a R-1 zoning to PRD as the property was newly annexed. Also included with that was a subdivision review that would take 86.8 acres and convert them into 407 lots for new homes. 

Of that 407, it would be 258 single family lots, 148 townhome lots with the remaining 10.5 acres for walking and biking trails.

Tonight’s meeting is open to the public.
