D.R. Horton’s project to build a 429 house development on 72 acres in north Bellingham may stall over a disagreement with the city on fixing roads. .It is D.R. Horton’s contention that it shouldn’t have to upgrade parts of Aldrich Road and Cordata Parkway because the project won’t impact the roads enough to require upgrades.
Environmental statements from 1995 for the north Cordata area state that a future development would require traffic fixes, and the city’s OK on this project relied on those documents. .
The city is asking D.R. Horton for an environmental checklist supported by a traffic study. If that isn’t submitted within four months, the application becomes invalid, the letter states.
D.R. Horton plans on building mostly west of the future intersection of Cordata Parkway and Kline Road, on both sides of Kline. The Reserve at Cordata, a D.R. Horton their present project under construction east of Cordata Parkway on Tremont Avenue, will include 320 units.
