Seventeen Lot subdivision proposed at 12384 & 12396 SW Clara Lane

The planning consultant for this proposed development, Danelle Isenhart, attended the  November 2018 ACNA neighborhood meeting.

The proposal is for a land division into 17 lots, standard street improvements for Clara Lane including a re-alignment where it meets Boones Ferry Rd., and a street extension to connect Clara Lane to Boones Ferry Lane (please note, that is BF Lane not BF Road).  19th street will no longer connect to Boones Ferry Rd.  The proposal also includes two open space tracts, wetland protections and pedestrian connections.

The ACNA Land Use Committee will send updates on this project to interested individuals. Contact Liz to be added to the email list. Liz Marantz,
