Members of the Santa Fe Planning Commission will be tasked with once again reviewing a project calling for the west side construction of 68 single-family homes.
The project, which has been in the planning stage for more than a year, is set for construction on a vacant 12.5-acre site at 1616 Agua Fria Street and would be built adjacent to the Mandela International Magnet School.
Developer Dos Acequias LLC has scaled down the project from an originally proposed 80 homes. But with that reduction, lots for the individual homes would be larger and would include easements for the construction of two-story homes.
Despite the overall reduction in the number of homes for the project, area residents in a neighborhood made up of mostly one-story homes, have said they remained worried about an expected increase in traffic on the two-lane Agua Fria Street.
If the commission signs off on the project, construction on the new homes could begin later this year.
