UPLAND – The City Council and Planning Commission will hold a workshop on Monday to discuss a proposed housing development near the Colonies Crossroads shopping center.

The Citrus Creek development, by Stratham Community Builders, would consist of 89 residential units on the corner of East 19th Street and Campus Avenue.

No decisions or actions will be made during the workshop, but the officials will hear presentations from the developers and input from the public.

“They have worked on this diligently and it is a concern as mayor to put in there what’s best for the neighborhood long term,” Mayor Ray Musser said.

The units would be under condominium ownership across 10.15 acres.

The developers submitted a plan in November 2010 that underwent some changes after a Planning Commission workshop in January.

Monday’s workshop could include discussion of density, product type, unit sizes, site configuration as well as environmental concerns, such as traffic.

“The minus in it is traffic,” Musser said. “Whenever you build something and improve something, you want people in the area to live there and therefore you’re going to have a 100 more cars coming out from that location per day at least once or twice per day.”
