Lincoln Neighborhood Upset with Building Plans

By  | 

"Fox Hollow has been an established neighborhood for 30 years, all of us were told this was going to be townhouses some day," said Fox Hollow Resident Becky McNeil.

However during a meeting last December, residents of the Fox Hollow Community found out that the upscale townhouses that had been planned on being built on an empty lot, would instead be an apartment and duplexes. Something that would depreciate the value of property for community members who had purchased homes under the thought that more townhouses would be built.

"Most of us have made the greatest investment of our lives in our properties," said McNeil.

"We had our house appraised when this started, anywhere from 5-8% we're being told that this will affect the value.

While residents say they're not opposed to development in the area, they want a plan that fits their neighborhood.

"We love our city, we love our neighborhood, we don't have any plans on going anywhere but this does feel like a bait and switch, we need to speak up," said Resident Lauren Davis.
