Many residents attending the meeting were opposed to having two entrances to the development. Residents around Wagon Wheel Lane were concerned that their quiet neighborhood would become unsafe for children because of the excess traffic.
Kelli Suski said she bought her home at 19 Wagon Wheel Lane because it was the last house on a dead end street. She said she likes the fact that her children can play outside and she doesn't have to worry.
"Our biggest attraction is the mail man and ice cream man," she said. "You can see why we want to keep it that way."
Gibney said the road is designed so it snakes through the development. It is not a straight route from Wagon Wheel Lane to Swaggertown Road, meant to deter people from cutting through the development and speeding.
Commission member Mark Storti said: "We will do everything we can to try to slow traffic down, whether through signs or police enforcement. We will do everything possible to make sure your children are safe."
Don Foust of 1 Spring Valley Circle said he was also concerned about the plans for a street through this development. He said the road will have to cross wetlands and he urged the commission to reconsider the through street.
Magoolaghan said whenever the road must cross wetlands the developer would do it in the most environmentally friendly way at a great expense.
The commission asked that deed restrictions be put on certain lots so that 20-foot trees will be planted to shield neighboring homes. Belmonte Builders also has to pay $59,000 for parks and additional recreation services. ""
