New Homes Proposed for Southwest Maple Grove
The Maple Grove Planning Commission is recommending approval of new homes in the southwest part of the city.
The proposal by Gonyea Companies would build new 17 homes in a new development called “South Prominence.” It’s the last undeveloped piece of land within the Prominence/Fieldstone neighborhoods.
The site is located east of Brockton Lane and west of Lawndale Lane North and to the south of 64th Avenue North. There would be two access points to the development, one off Fieldstone Boulevard North and the other off 64th. The development includes two existing homes.
The average lot width for the South Prominence is 87 feet and the average lot size is 0.35 acres.
Residents to the north of the development raised safety concerns about two intersections being too close. Rainier Lane currently intersects with 64th Avenue to the north of the proposed development. The new development to the south would have a new 64th Avenue intersection 125 feet to the east. City officials say the distance apart does conform to city guidelines.
